    Once again proof that nobody has ever beat byU in football - there is ALWAYS a reason why they are the better team, regardless of the results on the field!!

    Go Utes!

    "He was good in high school"

    Well I wish someone would have told me that earlier! Utah doesn't stand a chance now!

    Hill for Heisman!!!

    I remember Steve Young started a couple of games as a Sophomore when McMahon was hurt and he was awful as a passer. Even as a Junior Steve wasn't much better and I remember 5 interceptions in the Georgia game. Steve only became a good passer his senior year.

    My guess is that Taysom is actually a better runner than Steve Young, but a worse passer. Hopefully he won't need to wait until his Senior year to show good improvement. Go cougars!

    Call me crazy, but I thought Riley Nelson was supposed to be the new Tebow?

    Why doesn't anyone look at the number of passes that were dropped by receivers? That accounts for at least 7 or 8 throws, which would make the total around 30 or more out of 66. One specific less bobbled ball would also have produced a victory in Virginia. But it's all Hill's fault, right---media types?

    Sportswriters just can't seem to believe BYU won a game over a ranked opponent and did it in a smashing fashion. So they focus on the passing stats. Too bad; that's like buying a new car and deciding the wheels should be different, even though it still transported you alright. But Ute fans and sportswriters have to point to something and there was nothing else to pick apart......NOTHING!

    Yes, we know your new name.

    If it turns out as I suspect, that Taysom is working with an unspecified injury and yet is producing record setting performances on the field, don't your snide comments about something you know nothing about prove once again what we have all been trying to teach you?

    That it doesn't hurt to be kind?

    Being the worst passing rating QB in the entire country is not something to be proud of

    What does his faith have to do with his passing? Religious bigotry?
    I think if you have watched the games you would be more inclined to say his throwing action is more the result of a muscle tear, or tendon stretch than his faith. But then low brow humor was your point and not accuracy, am I correct?

    As usual, Rock, funny way to make wry observations. That isn't lost on me, honest.

    But for the benefit of our slobbering Utah ankle biters who are delighted with Taysom's current statistics, it isn't like he has never been able to pass the ball. He was good in high school. He was better than this last year.

    Reminiscent of another recent BYU quarterback. The serious question is whether the coaching staff can at least get him back to where he was last year? And how long will it take? Trolls delightedly think not. Coaches think so.

    I'll go with the coaches on this one.

    But thanks for the laugh.

    Hill will become a passer. BYU's Motto used to be "And we came to Pass and Pass and Pass...

    It might take time buy Hill will get there.
