    Default The official Zach Wilson thread - Best Ever QB in World History

    OK, the kid deserves an official thread. I reserve the right to adjust the thread title going forward, especially when his Heisman campaign takes off.

    Wilson is the youngest QB ever to start for BYU (he looks like he is 16!), but wow he seemed confident and mature. His performance was way beyond what I expected. I am sure there will be some hiccups along the way, but it will be fun to see what he can accomplish.

    Also, this might be the best photoshop job ever.

    Ty Detmer originally received a commitment from his nephew Zadock Dinkleman. When Ty was fired and Grimes came in, he quickly realized that Dinkleman sucked and rescinded his offer. Wilson was one of the highest rated QBs in the state (right behind Cammon Cooper a Washington St commit) and Grimes set his sights on Wilson. He was able to flip him very late in the process, and here we are.

    Déclassé for you to start this thread. I'll pour out an appletini out of respect. I suggest you all do the same.

    And Utah promised Tuttle they wouldn’t recruit another QB in the class. Tuttle may turn out to be my favorite Ute QB of all time.

    I have fear that Tuttle may be a Heaps or Mangum and that the best lifelong Utah fan QB ever becomes something special at BYU.

    That would hurt

    Thread title sucks, but I guess you knew that. I would have preferred something along the lines of the second coming of jimbo m’f’n mcmahon. Wilson is our Moses. He will spurn the false traditions in which he was raised and lead us out of captivity.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes.

    I have no idea if Zach Wilson will be our Moses, but man he was fun to watch. Great mix of talent, moxy, and mobility. It was fun to see our boys win, but so nice to see them drop a load of points and kick Hawaii's ass like it was 1980-something.

    Wait. He's not LDS? (I'm assuming that acronym has gone the way of the choir, so substitute as necessary.)

    I only watched the first half but he looked great. How is the OLine this year? If you can keep him protected, y'all are in good shape.

    Agreed on the thread title.

    He also felt he had a better bath to starting earlier, iirc

    No - supposedly he's a lifelong Ute fan that got spurned by his school of choice.

    That's annoying that Ty would engage in that kind of nepotism at the expense of the program. Actually, did BYU rescind the offer or did he reneg? He had a little history of backing out. Yes, he plays for Nazareth College now, but he previously committed to LSU (!) and backed out when there was a change in the guard, and was reportedly being courted by Texas, too, before the Charlie Strong era ended. So Ty could defend his recruitment of his nephew, I guess... just a weird trajectory.

    This phenomenon has worked out incredibly well for Oklahoma. I can't believe how many longtime-longhorn Lake Travis and Westlake quarterbacks --- even legacy players --- Mack and Charlie passed on, but I'm not complaining!

    I may not be thinking about this enough, but I'm going to wager that if someone is playing football at Nazareth College instead of at a) LSU, b) BYU, or c) potentiallyit is because he was not given the option to play at a, b, or c.

    That changes the whole analysis.

    Seems like, from what i remember, Dinkleman got an offer from LSU when he was in 8th grade, or something ridiculous like that. Later he decommitted from LSU - and it looked like a pretty good player for BYU to chase. No idea what happened after that - if he just didn't develop after Jr. High or something, or if the various teams' slot for funny named players was filled by someone else. But it doesn't seem like he was a bad prospect to take a look at. As I recall - he took a visit to Alabama too. I don't think Bama and LSU are offering kids who don't have some potential.

    If he ends up being great- would he be the first to wear # 11?

    Was Virgil Carter #11? How about Sheide?

    Post Sheide it went:
    Elder Neilsen #14 - I am still a Tennessee Titan Fan!
    Marc Wilson #6
    Jimbo M'f'N McMahon #9 and we should all have a tatoo of it.
    Bobby Roscoe #6
    Ty Detmer #14
    Walsh was #7
    Sark #12
    Doman was #11!!!!! I found one.
