Monson: BYU’s Bronco Mendenhall just can’t quit Riley Nelson

< Previous Page

Hill is just a newcomer.

"Taysom is doing his part," Mendenhall said, "but there isn’t as much history between he and I like there is between Riley and I."

It’s as though the arrogance of Jake Heaps casts its shadow still on every fresh face, none of which is to be fully trusted by the team until he’s worked through the lower ranks, paying his dues. Freshman running back Jamaal Williams, who gained 155 yards Friday night, got his chance mostly because Mike Alisa broke his arm.

Bottom line: Sometimes talent, especially at quarterback, has to trump passion and protocol.

This is one of those times.
