I haven't been to CB in ages but I'm not sure if there are that many BYU fans taking joy in the benching of Alex Smith. I've said this before but BYU fans have a similar relationship with Alex Smith as Utah fans have with Jimmer. Really, do that many Utah fans hate Jimmer? I haven't seen it.
Also, there's no effing way Alex Smith would have led that kind of comeback. The 49ers already had the most sophisticated running game in the league and Kaepernick just adds a couple more layers to it with the read option and pistol. It's something that's still a work in progress as Kaepernick and the receivers learn where the soft parts in the defense are because of the read option and Kaepernick's running ability. Aside from the defensive end/pass rushing OLB, it causes huge problems for the safeties. Bernard Pollard is not a great coverage safety but a great run support safety so it will be interesting to see how he plays in this game. Hopefully he doesn't mistake the Niners for the Patriots.
