Congratulations to Taysom Hill winner of the Capital One Cup Impact Performance
of the Week!
Getting better each week. I predict an 8-4 season and a bowl game in
December.Blue Coug, Thanks for pointing out the accolades for Hill. I had
not heard that yet. And to think he is only a soph. Can't wait for next
Dick, I know it seems like you have won all 70 games you predicted this year but
it truly is only 50 wins to go along with the 20 losses.I do like
the progress that the Cougars (and especially Taysom) are making on offense.I'm sure the defense is getting a lot of practice time this week in
preparation for Boise State.This is another opportunity to showcase
a growing offense and a stellar defense. I know that when we win there will be
some who will say that this is a down year for Boise or there first string QB
was injured, or some other nonsense, but this is a very critical game for both
teams and they will both be at their best.Factor in two great
coaches and you have the formula for a entertaining game that will go down to
the final play.BYU 31-28 over Boise State.Goooooooooooo
I was very impatient at the beginning of the season with the losses and lack of
offensive productivity. I guess I just should have trusted Anae and hope he can
pull it off the rest of the year.
I think Utah fans are so used to getting no attention at all the last 3 years
that they might throw a parade down State St. just at being nominated before
actually winning. Isn't that how it works in SLC? Maybe get a patch to
commemorate the occasion.
Utah a national power? You realize you just compared yourself to teams
with multiple national titles.Top ten recruiting classes.Multiple
heisman winners.hundreds of current and former NFL players.National
followingsgames on Network TV (CBS, ABC)And yes Utah fans would be
excited about it.Go back and look at how many posts on Wilson's qb
ratingsor bubba poole's rushing stats.Any Alabama fans
posting?National powers don't post on other teams boards
Chris BMore petty jealousy?Here's a little clue: In
order for BYU fans to be able to vote for Taysom's Capital One Cup Impact
Performance of the Week, Taysom first had to have such an outstanding
performance that he was one of only four players nominated for the week.After all of your mocking criticism of Taysom since the start of the
season, it must be particularly galling to you to see Taysom's true
potential starting to emerge, especially in the same week in which Travis had
the worst performance of his career.Over the last four games,
Taysom's passing efficiency rating has been 156.3, which, for the season,
would rank him about 21st in the NCAA. In the last four games,
Travis's passing efficiency rating has been 119.0, which, for the season,
would rank him about 94th in the country.Two quarterbacks headed in
opposite directions.Call us the first time a Utah QB passes for 400+
yards, rushes for 100+ yards, and throws 4 TDs, and we'll compare strength
Good to see @ChrisB speaking his mind, finally!The continued
improvement by BYU's offense has been impressive, let's hope they can
keep it up and finish the season strongly. BYU's got tough games coming up
but games that they should be able to compete in. Now if the Defense can rise
from that awful performance; no more big play give ups. And if the Offense can
protect the ball better than vs Houston.
"You think... Utah fans would be getting pumped about a capital one
performance of the week?"Are you kidding? Utah fans would be
having trouble breathing from beating their chests so hard.
Oh and Chris they are accepted.by ESPNand just so you knowI
cheer for the Utes.But the only cable provider in my area of 80,000
peopledoesn't carry the pac-12 networkI can see BYU and USU
playI saw the Utes play once (BYU)Pac-12 network is available in 40
million homes.BYUtv is available in over 50 million.ESPNnews 74
million.Tell me when you are on ABC or NBC
From an article title 5 premier coaching jobs to open1. Texas2.
USC3. Nebraska4. Notre Dame5. Texas A&MIf Utah was a
national power Whit would have been fired for struggling in conference.
chris bFlorida State's QB won the award a couple of weeks ago.
If the award is so meaningless, why do you think fans from teams like Florida
State, Oregon, Georgia and Clemson were so interested in voting for their
players?For the record, here is the list of winners of the Capital
One Cup Impact Performance of the Week so far this year:BYU QB
Taysom HillPenn State QB Christian HackenbergFlorida State QB Jameis
WinstonECU QB Shane CardenIowa's Kevonte Martin-ManleyOregon QB Marcus MariotaGeorgia QB Aaron MurrayClemson QB Tajh
BoydI can see why a BYU-obsessed Utah fan would be so jealous of
BYU's QB being included in such an elite list of outstanding players.
RE: Chris B. "You guys want to be accepted so badly don't
you? I noticed that the entire state of florida had only one fourth the votes as
the state of Utah, and Florida State's QB was second in voting. And
I'll remind you Florida's population is significantly larger than
Utah's. That's the difference in how fans of true national powers act
and fans of wannabe national powers act. You think USC, Florida, Alabama, Utah
fans would be getting pumped about a capital one performance of the week? LOL.
NO!"Classic post. Let me remind you that BYU's fan
population is significantly larger than Utah's. That's the difference
in how fans of true in-state powers act and fans of wannabe state powers act.
You think USU, Boise State, and Notre Dame fans post dozens of times each week
on BYU articles. LOL. NO!
I remember that statement and hoped it would not take 6 weeks. I would also say
for good and for bad, those 40-8-90 number at last weeks' game also led to
16 points by the opposition. If they had eliminated the turnovers and had the
40-8-90 number, I would be giddy. I do hope this is a step in the
progression of the offense and we have seen the peak.
