Wake Up, Bronco Nation: BYU gets Hill back; basketball tonight

February 17, 2016

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It's Wednesday. Let's ride!!

Guess who is baaacckkkkk???

Which is curious. And should provide months of article fodder for our friends over at Vanquish the Foe. The fact that BYU has two really good quarterbacks on the roster for next year is going to make for fun conversations. Much like Urban Meyer's problem at Ohio State going into last season when he essentially had three starting quarterbacks competing for one spot.

Not that Taysom Hill cares about what some blogger in Boise thinks, but I would venture to say it is not a good idea. With Hills penchant for getting broken, he'll be lucky to make it to the Boise State matchup still on the active roster. I suppose it is a good thing for BYU to know they are in capable hands if Hill manages to win back the starting job AND gets hurt again. I was hoping Hill would move on to something else to save him the heartache of another season-ending injury. But I guess not.

Good luck to you Mr. Hill. You will be needing it.

Talking about Big 12 expansion this summer

sloth yawn

Yes. Boise State is mentioned. Most likely out of courtesy than anything. I'll say this: it ain't going to happen. We all like to think it will, but it won't. These decisions are based not on football records alone, but on everything an institution has to offer. Yes, Boise State DOES have a lot to offer, but just not in the grand scheme. Read the article if you want, but do not get your hopes up. It is a fool's errand.

Are high school recruiting combines helpful?

This link is somewhat a response to the Detroit Free Press's Mick McCabe railing against the use of these recruiting combines. McCabe is basically calling all these things a farce. A way to get parents to shell out oodles of money to these camps to help their kid get noticed. McCabe uses the "No five star in the Super Bowl" data point. Five Star guys are super rare so, percentage-wise, it kind of makes sense. Anyway, I can see both points. They can help get a kid noticed, or just a waste of money.
