If Wilson is not 100%, he needs to do the right thing and let Schultz run the offense. Wilson's pick 6 was very costly against Arizona.

I completely agree. I love gutsy players that want to tough it out as much as the next guy, but there comes a point where they have to decide between gutting it out and what's ultimately best for the team (see Riley Nelson, 2012). I think a healthy Schultz gives Utah a better shot than an unhealthy Wilson dealing with a finger on his throwing hand. That's like going into a gunfight not knowing if your firing mechanism is working at 100%...dangerous proposition. Of course none of us really know how healthy Wilson really is, but if he's not really 100%, it behooves the utes to start the guy who is.

Wilson and Schultz are both really good. You don't lose much when Schultz is in there. Wilson is better - hope his hand is truly healed, it was obvious it has been bothering him for a while.

I would make sure that Wilson takes good care of his hand and it is at least 100% on that throwing hand, them by all means let him start the game.If not then Schulz looked confident, remember that threw that long touchdown pass right on the money to Anderson? If there is ANY doubt alt all about Wisons hand then give Adam Schulz the chance to play a full game. The kicking game and defensive units have kept us in the game in the past. I really like the odd couple of Phillips and Hackett in our kicking game. If they have excellent performances then the Utes might just pull this one out.

I think Shultz did okay last game. I hoping he's getting more reps this week even if Wilson can play.

The critical issue regardless of QB is TOs. We have 11 INTs in 4 PAC-12 games: OSU 3 L, UCLA 6 L, Stanford 0 W, Arizona 2 L.


Comparing two mid-level sophomore QBs' NFL potential is an exercise in futility. This argument at this point in each of their young careers is pointless.

"And what was byu's signature win? Against an uninspired Texas team who didn't want to be here?"

I think you are confusing 2013 Texas with Sugar Bowl Alabama
