Bleacher Report: Why Jake Heaps will become the greatest QB in BYU history

Let's hope this guy knows what he's talking about... "No BYU quarterback has been a full-time four-year starter. Heaps has the ability to become the first—barring injury, of course. The sheer number of games Heaps would play under such a scenario gives him a great chance to rewrite the BYU record books. Assuming the Cougars play 12 regular season games and a bowl game in each of Heaps’ four years, the total comes to 52 games. Even if Heaps lost 19 of those games, he could still pass Max Hall’s career wins record of 32. The last time BYU lost at least 19 games in a four-year stretch was 2003-2006. Keep in mind that only eight of those losses came under Bronco Mendenhall. Despite Hall’s ascent up the career wins list, Ty Detmer is still the gold standard for career statistical dominance at BYU: 1,530 pass attempts, 958 completions, 15,031 yards, and 121 touchdowns in 46 games. Here’s about what Heaps would have to average over 52 games to pass the Heisman Trophy winner: 29.5 attempts, 18.5 completions, 289.1 yards, and 2.4 touchdowns. Seems pretty reachable, doesn’t it?"
