Tanner is far and away the finest talent among the contenders.
I'm in agreement, if these guys are good why not make a spot for them in
another position? Recently, we witnessed a back throwing a touchdown pass to a
quarterback--only to win the Superbowl.There are indeed 4 options,
don't discount using them on special teams or other positions. BYU will be
a contender this year, the motivation as there -Sitake will be gone if a repeat
of last season.Go Cougs
To say BYU is on the academic level with Stanford and Northwestern is as
delusional as thinking they can win a national championship.
“And the winner is...........Hoge!“I agree, but
unfortunately for byu & their fans, no QB will become a Savior for byu,
they’re that inept overall.GO UTES!
“Not only did tanner struggle at times against Portland state, he got
sacked a few times against a high school.“One of the most
brilliant things I’ve ever read on these threads!Way to
denigrate a COLLEGE opponent just because they rightfully made your professed
team look pathetic....Congratulations!LolGO UTES!
I want a QB who can take a hit by the sink, pick it back up, and throw it 45
yards all while being chased by the DL.Sound like too much?
whatever, we need another superman out there, there are 9 candidates to find
one, gonna be interesting to see who emerges and who changes positions and who
So, when the sink is thrown at the various QBs are they supposed to catch the
sink or avoid being hit by the sink? The article doesn't say. . .
I agree that the games are won in the trenches.Not only did tanner
struggle at times against Portland state, he got sacked a few times against a
high school. BYU failed to deliver constant pressure on the opposing
quarterbacks. My hope is that kalani will be able to focus more on
the defense this year. They started looking pretty good but as the season wore
on they looked pretty bad out there.
I’m happy to see that BYU is trying their best to improve, and I think
they will. I believe the QB wasn’t the problem last year, even though they
had an unfortunate number hurt. I think it was their O-Line and D-Line. The
O-Line couldn’t block well or pick up blitzes which caused for the QBs to
be injured either getting hit all the time or running for their lives and making
bad decisions. The D-Line kept getting blown off the line causing multiple first
downs and big plays for the opponents. Thankfully, Grimes and Pugh will not
allow the O-Line to fail. For the D-Line, Tuiaki will need to convert some of
the remaining and very quick QBs and receivers over to the D-Line like he did at
Utah with Trevor Reilly and Nate Orchard creating the “Sack Lake
City” crew. If it flows as planned, they’ll go bowling again.
We need a QB who can block...run the ball...pass to himself...run after the
catch...run down opponents after a turnover...punt...and return punts and
kickoffs. Lets hope he can play defense as well and never gets hurt. Oh...and
he must be able to put together a game plan. If he can't do these things
no one else will.
So Detmer's Offense was too complex and Grimes also wants to use a complex
Offense. Why not walk before you can run?
And the winner is...........Hoge! When healthy, he definitely looked
like the best QB on the roster last year and gives them the most opportunity at
victory provided the coaching staff doesn't have him running the option
The only thing we really understand about the QB spot is that whomever is
selected as the starter, will be a Heisman candidate...
There will be ton of articles about BYU football (and every team) before the
first snap this fall. The bottom line is: No matter the formation, the play, or
the defense- unified teams that block and tackle better than the opponents
"pre-snap shifts and motion to the offense"Sounds like a
recipe for a plethora of drive killing false starts and illegal motion
@moonbeamBronco Mendenhall fell in love with Riley Nielsen, and failed to
hold on to some very gifted QB's, who transferred away from BYU. —————-He had other gifted QB’s
on the roster that they failed to develop, guys who were 4 star recruits with
some major offers to p5 schools. Coaches can’t let a man crush on one
player totally blind them to the responsibility of promoting competition and
developing depth at each position.
Bronco Mendenhall fell in love with Riley Nielsen, and failed to hold on to some
very gifted QB's, who transferred away from BYU. Riley got hurt, then his
backup (Taysom Hill) got injured. Then lo and behold, BYU was out of
scholarship QB's and had to go with a walk-on to finish the season. You
can never have enough good QB's, even if you have to use them in other
positions in the mean time.The QB's listed in this article are
all good QBs and great athletes, so use them!
In the article you list three options for the QB's 1) become a starter or
backup, 2)be on the scout team, 3) transfer. Actually there is a forth option,
and Utah has used it well. That option is to shift from QB to another position
(like receiver or defensive back). If they are athletic, then why not find a
place for them to participate? Just look at Taysom Hill, in the NFL. His
preferred position is QB, with Drew Breeze and an established backup ahead of
him his team is using him on special teams (with great success, I might add).
Don't let gifted athletes transfer, for goodness sakes, find a way for them
I have not seen the new guys yet.... but considering those that played QB last
year...my money is on Hoge. Before his concussion he was showing mobility, guts,
and starting to get better with check-downs. BYU does not have the O line
horses.... to hold the pocket for a straight drop back guy...especially against
P5 talent. The QB has to be able to improvise and use his legs to create
google "pre-snap shifts and motion", the LSU video shows a lot of BYU in
it as well.scares me a bit, but could be extremely effective, my
guess is that it's the lower half of the schedule that will be more messed
up by it, mature disciplined defenses (like what we're supposed to have)
don't generally get super messed up by movement.
