"The quarterbacks who have thrived at BYU have all had great understanding. That understanding, that feel, is an innate thing, something I think you either have or you don't. You can't really coach it. If you don't have it, you can become an adequate quarterback, and possibly a pretty good one in the right system.

"Some years we've had as many as half a dozen 5th year senios starting for us who have hardly played before. Some of our very best players over the years, in terms of honors, haven't started, or played very much at all, until their junior or senior seasons. In the case of returned missionaries, they often may not start until five or six years after they first arrive as freshmen. Many of our top receivers, in particular, have spent plenty of time being anonymous, players such as Chuck Cutler, Andy Boyce, David Mills, and Scott Phillips to name a few." -pg 78
