"I don't care what Utah does. At all. I'm sick of hearing people talking about what Utah is going to do or not do. They don't matter to BYU now at all. Unless BYU plays them in the Kraft bowl this year they are no more or less important than Virginia or Texas. Just a number on the scorecard."

Amen butha. If I could like your comment more than once, I would.

I watched Taysom play for our local high school. He was accurate enough as a passer but I always thought he could have been far more precise were it not for his running ability. Instead of learning how to thread the needle, he just took off and ran for 30 yards.

And in high school--just like at BYU--the defenders often took bad angles because his speed is deceptive and he'd be past the defense before they got there.

I think the more he is required to pass at BYU the more accurate he'll be. I think this is going to be a lost season (Houston is 4-0, Georgia Tech is 3-1, Notre Dame, Utah State and Boise can easily beat them. Wisconsin is on the road and Nevada is no slouch).

They could easily get just two more wins, against Idaho State and Nevada. They will probably beat Georgia Tech and the rest are coin flips at best.

That's just four wins for sure. Can they get two more out of that group?

They'll be studs in 2013, but this year Taysom may have to learn on-the-run.

Frankly, the more plays you run, the faster you should learn. The faster you can get the reps, the quicker you can gain the experience to succeed. Go fast and go hard should mean a quicker learning curve, not an extended one.
