“Offensive problems not his fault”

Most BYU fans are concerned about the production of the offense. For good reason. The BYU Cougars have been one of the worst offenses in the country through the first quarter of the regular season. They have only scored 18, 19 and 14 points in their first 3 games.

Despite this, the BYU coaching staff must be encouraged by what they have seen on the field from the starting quarterback Taysom Hill.

Following today’s practice, Kalani Sitake indicated that the Cougars are going to stick with Taysom Hill as the starting quarterback for Saturday’s matchup against the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Following Saturday’s loss to UCLA, BYU head coach Kalani Sitake indicated that at halftime there was a discussion about substituting Taysom Hill in favor of Tanner Mangum. The staff decided against it because they were worried about a “disruption.”

Many fans have wondered if a change at quarterback might be able to improve the offensive efficiency.

Looks like they will have to continue to wonder.
