This all starts at QB. Tanner Mangum
2015 59% completion, QB rating of 70
2016 64% 56
2017 54% 20, so the guy is headed in the wrong direction. I will say that he "woke up" in the forth quarter and threw the ball well but we dropped a lot of passes.
At receiver our top guy is a true freshman, Matt Bushman with 13 receptions, no TDs
next, Hifo with 9, 0 TDs
Pau'u and Dye have 1 TD, enough said, we have a ton of very green receivers who don't know have to play the game yet. Our lone Sr, Trinnaman is a complete bust, speed but no hands. Hifo and Tanner both dropped balls in that last series in the Utah game, either one would have given BYU a 1st down.
At Running back, Sr Canada is a total bust, 109 yards in 3 games, Hall is injured, Burt has switched to DB. We have a total of 2 TDs from the running back position in 3 games....enter Tolutau and he carrys 6 times for 28 yds and a TD. This is our biggest disappointment of the season and the Oline is a big part of the problem. They are not opening holes.
One more thing: Detmer is not using the RB to defend the safely blitz. We fake the hand off and the RB in not there to pick up the blitz (how many sacks did Hanson get on Mangum?)
On Defense, Huntley shredded our zone defense in the middle all freakin game long. Other than that BYU played well enough to win the Utah game.
On Offense, man do we suck.....Tanner has been MIA. Line is not able to create holes, Running game has been MIA, passing MIA but I think we are seeing some light from our 4 quarter production. Tanner was throwing much better, Tolutau came in a ignited the whole team with his running and Dye made a heck of a TD catch.
Wisconsin will beat BYU but we will start to move the ball. Low scoring game. BYU will do better than Vegas thinks, our D will keep us in it and our O will start to breath a little bit. Call me crazy but I think we don't lose another game after Wisconsin. I think Tanner is coming out of his big fog, RB to me is Fonua and Tolutau moving forward with some Dye and Hall when he is healthy, I still don't know why Burt changed positions. Receivers will not be dropping so many balls.
