    Beau has two pros. 1) He is playing behind Mangum, a guy with a cannon for an arm and, 2) His offensive coach is a drop back quarterback. On the other hand, Beau has two advantages 1) His offensive coach has played in the NFL for, what, 14 years? 2) He will still have a year of eligibility after Mangum leaves (if Mangum stays for all four years).

    I love Mangum,but I also love Beau. The thing about Beau is that he is almost a carbon copy of Taysom Hill. Beau can be better than Taysom ever was, if he develops more efficient passing skills. If he can develop his passing, Mangum could possibly lose his starting job next year, if he doesn't live up to expectations this year.

    All this is good for BYU. I did forget to mention some of the other BYU qb's that also have some awesome talent.

    Beau and others at BYU, especially in athletic programs, could end up with very little playing time and a great paid for education, leaving them set to make a great life for the rest of their days. Not so bad.

    so many great athletes don't get to play the position they expected to originally or sit waiting a chance.

    BYU's got a good QB problem starting again, loads of talent heading through BYU, anxious for the coming years.
