Blood Runs Blue: Diagnosing the Taysom-loss hangover



BYU football fans’ dreams of a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback and perfect record season were cut short in Friday night’s game against Utah State when BYU quarterback Taysom Hill was taken out of a game with a season-ending tackle.

Hill has since undergone a two-hour surgery to fix his fractured left leg.

“One plate, eight screws,” said coach Bronco Mendenhall about the surgery to Deseret News. “Every major ligament shredded. It’s significant. (Doctors) knew it was bad. When they got in there, it was worse.”

Hill is expected to be out for four to six months. If you are still grieving Hill’s loss, read this humorous account and know others are suffering alongside you.

    Why is everyone afraid to say what I believe? SIX BYU players deliberately and maliciously injured by hatemongers and bigots. Didn’t everyone see it coming early in the game when the BYU punt returner was smashed into full speed long before the got to him? I believe It was a deliberate attempt to cause injury. USU coaches should make sure their locker room has no leaks.
