Default Who is this BYU QB, and why is he still playing?

Brigham Young's a fairly big program, and they've got some history in football. Surely they can find someone better than this.

Default Re: Who is this BYU QB, and why is he still playing?

It's Jake Heaps, he was the supposed "top QB in the country coming out of high school" as well, but the guy has been absolutely abysmal, and the only reason he still has a job is the fact BYU won 5 straight last year just to make it to the New Mexico Bowl, I don't know why the guy is still in the game, won the game for us (Utah) last week with his play. lol Maybe BYU is hanging their hat on the fact he's only a sophmore, but he's awful.

BYU's defense is actually pretty stout, but Heaps is so bad it isn't even funny.

He's more than likely still the starter because of how "heralded" he was as a recruit (top QB in his class). And I'm sure they will just continue to play him and hope he starts being as great as he was hyped.

If you want to see a quality team that is held back by their QB, watch South Carolina play.

Stephen Garcia is absolute garbage as a Quarterback. Even worse than Heaps.

Am I the only one thinking UCF's back-up was the best QB tonight?

BYU won that game inspite of Heaps, BYU's defense and the running game that they finally got bailed the passing game out.

Heaps is absolutely awful....its amazing that BYU, with its rich history at the QB position, can't find someone else. They won last night in spite of Heaps. Too bad for the defense which looks pretty good...but Heaps is going to keep every opponent in the game.
