Jim McMahon. King of Kings when it comes to the Y.He put the y on
the college football map.
Don't see the gritty Riley Nelson and Sean Covey was chosen instead?
Don't know anyone shouting out load about that one.
I'm kind of tired of people taking shots at Riley... 2 seasons ago he saved
our program from being an absolute disaster (i.e. Central Florida and Utah
State)...Last year would have also been a complete disaster after Hill went down
had Nelson not come back with a Broken Back and lead us to some fairly important
wins... I don't know of any QB at any level that would have done that...
The guy showed courage beyond what any other QB has ever shown with the possible
exception of the Holiday Bowl in 84' when Robbie Bosco hobbled out on the
field in the 4th quarter to secure the National Championship by beating
Michigan... So, plese, give the guy some love and respect.
Where's riley nelson? haha utah can't even boast of 5 QBs as good as
the 15 listed here. Personally, Sarkisian deserves to be higher and
some of the Qbs like Sheide and Carter should be lower, but it really is a good,
accurate list. I'd move Sheide down to around #11 and Carter to #12 and
move Sark up to #7 and maybe Walsh a little higher. My top 5 would be:1.
Detmer2. McMahon3. Young4. Bosco (Hard to move the national
champ QB down, but let's face it Young was awesome)5. WilsonWhat a great list!!!!
poyman Lincoln City, OROooh, I so agree! Really, not being
sarcastic. And I have my own private theory that during the two-quarterback
controversy, Riley had already unmoved his shoulder, but came out to play so
that Jake wouldn't have to be named the starting qb right out of HS. Gave
him a chance to ease into it, and not take all the heat for being solely
responsible for the losses.
