So many faulty ideas undone tonight. Hill will NEVER be a good
passer? Check.Coaches will not put him in a position to succeed?
Check.Tonight, coaches found the weak spot the Aggies were willing
to surrender in order to do what everyone said they should do: stack the box,
challenge Hill to beat them with his arm. Matthews becomes an instant star in
man to man mismatch coverage and Hill suddenly looks like the quarterback we all
knew he could.
A resounding YES!-Said no one. Ever.
PGVikingDad,Haven't them boys in happy valley told
you?..."Head to head and scoreboard don't mean anything".Go Utes. Go Pioneers.
Not even close.Not now, not ever.
"Taysom won and Chuckie lost, by every conceivable metric including
scoreboard. Conclusion: I'll take Taysom for the win, just as he delivered
last year."You do realize that quarterbacks don't play
against each other right? They play against the opposing defense... saying that
Taysom "won head to head" is an absurd claim. Do you even understand how
football works?Give byu's defense last year credit, they kept
Chuckie in check but do you think Taysom would have done any better than that
against that #3 defense in the country last year? No way.
It seems like ever since the 2011 Utah game, the sharks have been circling with
blood in the water just waiting for the Quarterbacks at BYU to fail. From
everything that I see, the current regime at BYU does not know how to manage
quarterbacks. I don't think Hill will ever come close to being
like Chuckie Keeton because unless something drastic changes, his coaches will
not put him in a position to succeed. I don't think it's the X's
and O's, there is something that is just dysfunctional right now in regards
to the BYU offense.
"The passing touchdowns and completion percentage are heavily in
Keeton's favor, but notice that Hill leads in yards passing.So,
there is hope."Because passing yards which don't turn into
points count for so much...
I can't believe this is even a conversation. It is just a BYU fan trying to
justify that their truly horrible quarterback (but great running back) may have
some potential. Chuckies first game as a freshman was against the defending
national champios and he still had an amazing start. Lets also not forgot how
truly bad Virginia is this year and also how over rated Texas was. The only stat
the Taysom can compete at is Chuckies passing yeards as a freshman through seven
games, but look at the percentages and the number of attempts. Taysom will have
to throw twice as many balls as chuckie did.No chance for Taysom Hill
This is much to say about nothing...Keeton is NOT the cat's meow; Just
look at the last two years against BYU:1) 2011 he only had 122 yards
passing and 25 yards rushing and BYU won;2) 2011 he was bested in both
categories by none other than Riley Nelson--the fullback!3) 2012 he had
202 yards passing, with only 16 being the longest; Taysom Hill had 235 yards
passing;4) Chuckie the wonder boy only managed a net of 37 yards on the
ground and was sacked 3 times;5) Taysom had 80 yards by himself.6)
And, last year, BYU won again!Bottom line-when it comes to the games that
count with BYU, Chuckie is wanting!
I like the decisions that byu is making with Hill
Look at the teams that USU played against in 2012. Heck I can throw for 3,000
yards against those teams.
Keeton's future has nothing to do with Hill's. They are built
differently, have different running styles and play with teams that possess
different offensive styles/strategies.
Who wrote this article?
Wow, did you ever miss the obvious: What about head-to-head? These two gentlemen
have already squared off on the same field. Outcome? Chuckie - 22/38 for 202
yards with no TDs/INTs, plus 10 carries for 23 yards; Taysom - 24/36 for 235
yards with 1 TD and 1 INT, plus 19 carries for 80 yards. Taysom won and Chuckie
lost, by every conceivable metric including scoreboard. Conclusion: I'll
take Taysom for the win, just as he delivered last year.
hahahhahahahha, no way man. Someone hide this article from Chuckie.
re: ChristoperB"Ya, and Alabama's present is byu's
future."That is so wrong! Byu's past is Bama's
Maybe in a parallel universe. But, I doubt it!
Sorry Lafe. Chuckie was better than Taysom from day one. Taysom can improve,
but I would never compare him to Chuckie Keeton.
Not a chance. Chuckie is shifty, Hill is a downhill runner. Hill's future
is more like Alex Smith, but before we can have that conversation Hill would
need to grow an arm and a brain.
Ya, and Alabama's present is byu's future.LOL
To answer the question posited (not posed, but posited):No.
Travis Wilson has a better chance of being the next Chuckie than Taysom
ya, and Barack might become Ronald Reagan
LOL!No.Was chuckie ever the worst passer rating QB in
the entire country?Nope!
