Gee...another BYU article that receives a slew of anti-BYU comments from nervous
nellies on the hill.Who'da thunk it?
Everybody seems to forget Ryan Hancock -- one of BYU's great backup QBs.
Unfortunately, he only got to play one year.
SOS means absolutely nothing going into the season. It changes from week to
week and nobody knows how it will all shake out. Looks like BYU is going back
to their roots and I have no idea where utah is going. Until they can win in
November, they are proving to be no better off than they were in the Mtn West,
except the pay is better.
Fear and envy are already showing up in the bottom half of the PAC12. LSU, Wisconsin, Boise, Mississippi State, and little Utah. Anybody on
Utah's slate as tough as LSU, Wisconsin, and Boise? Utah would have to play
USC, Washington, and Stanford. Possibly Oregon will be better this year, but the
rest of the PAC will be about as tough as Utah State.
@blue & whiteIf I remember correctly (and I do)Number one on your list Scott Mitchell wanted to go to BYU but they stupidly
eschewed him for covey.(A decision as bad as bronco's
preferring nelson over everyone else)Number on utah's list is a
BYU wanna be! Now that's funny!
"Give the paucity of little blue brothers in the NFL, any high school player
with skills to reach the next level after college should run not walk away from
a Sitake offer." Yet in other news a standout WR just committed
to BYU today over Utah and Arizona. BYU will get very good QBs and
WRs, because they throw a lot. Utah will always get good punters,
because they punt a lot!

Here's hoping that Mangum will return to his Freshman shine. He looked
pretty good most of the games except for Michigan. But the last couple of times
he has seen the field, he did not do too well. Maybe the weather I suppose.
Definitely a need for quality backup QBs. Other than a history of backup
quarterbacks, the article did not give much detail on the new crop. Just a list
I see the BYU obsession is still alive in these comments. Inferiority
complex's are such a sad thing. BYU has a great QB tradition and they
have several really good ones on their roster now. Go Coug's
Blue and white, yeah, today's players care about what happened in the
1950's. We'll leave all of the nostalgic history to BYU-P fans.
However, what current players are aware of is Utah's dominance in the
state. And...Utah has a QB who has been starting in the NFL for ten years.
Who's BYU-P's starting NFL QB?
Once again here comes the ute fans with their childish look at me look at me
@Azute 1. If Jack Tuttle stays committed to the U he may end up on this great
list of U of U QB's in the NFL. The U has had great players selected in the
draft but only six quarterbacks from The U have ever taken a regular season snap
in the NFL.6. Mark Stevens- Stevens wasn’t drafted into the
NFL and only saw game action in two games as a member of the San Francisco Forty
Niners. 5. Terry Nofsinger- was the 230th pick in the 17th round
of the 1961 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. 4. Lee Grosscup- was
the tenth pick in the draft by the New York Giants in the 1959 draft. Grosscup
only played eight games in the NFL. 3. Tom Dublinski- the 93rd
pick in the eighth round of the 1952 draft by the Detroit Lions. 2.
Alex Smith- Smith was the first pick in the draft by the San Francisco Forty
Niners in the 2005 draft. He was replaced by Kapernick. If Smith can find any
success with the Kansas City Chiefs he will move to the top of the list very
shortly.1. Scott Mitchell- Mitchell was the 93rd pick in the fourth
round of the 1990 draft by the Miami Dolphins. Jack Tuttle may want
to rethink his commitment if he wants to have success in the NFL.
Harmon makes a good point about the need for a talented backup QB. Except, this
year, even Jake Heaps would prove adequate. BYU plays eight teams
with a combined record of 24-70, so Coach Ty could fill in when the cupcake
portion of the schedule kicks in. 🏈
The quarterback is only as good as the team around him whether it is Tuttle,
Tittle, Mangum, or Hoge.Why don't we wait and see "who does
what" under actual game conditions? Oh, I forgot that it feels so good to
speculate and/or throw darts.😄
absolutely terrified.Oh wait, I was thinking of their punters.
I'm seriously terrified of their punters, the QBs, not so much!
This is a pretty good BYU schedule. If the Coogs finish 10-2, I think they will
be top 25 and being a backup to Tanner might be a good place to be. 9-3? A mid
major bowl and you are wondering why you aren't involved with a P5 program.
Less than that? You'll be wondering why you are currently living in Provo.
You do not want to be 8 or less wins and be a non p-fiver backup. That's
I watched them all in spring practice.My unprofessional opinion? Koy
Detmer looked better then all of them.
"We are terrified."You should be!Go Utes!
AZUTE1 - Mesa, AZWe are terrified.
"any BYU QB could start anywhere else, but most never even see the field.
"Anywhere else? Not where they in fact play against a
legitimately serious Sos.Stayed tuned & compare tm's
numbers against their 4 P5 opponents/Bsu vs their 8 gimme games....The disparity
will be enormous.p.s. Jack Tuttle is literally right around the
corner....He's already told Alabama/Usc thanks, but no thanks....Beware.Go Utes!
While it's good to hear about the new guys, what about the actual depth
chart. Where do Hoge and Detmer fit in right now?Ty Detmer has a
good enough stable that I think the QB position will start to become what it was
when I was growing up - any BYU QB could start anywhere else, but most never
even see the field. There are some amazing QBs up and coming, should
be fun to watch!
