As I watched BYU lose another close game on Oct. 20, this time to Boise State, I couldn’t help but wonder, what if. What if is something you always seem to be thinking of as a BYU fan, but in this case I was wondering what if Tanner Mangum started all season instead of Taysom Hill. I immediately felt bad for thinking this because of how much Tayson means to not just me, but all BYU fans. But it’s a question that had to be brought up after BYU fell to 4-4 on the season and all their losses are by a combined eight points.

For most of this decade, the Green Bay Packers have been like a tsunami-proof house. They could withstand anything. Even when Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone early in the 2013 season, no Packer’s fan gave up. They still have that foundation. They can figure this out. We had the same attitude after Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in the preseason last year. They were able to figure it out and make the playoffs. That same attitude kicked in after the Packers struggled to start the 2016 season. Everyone says, “we’re going to be okay. They’ve been here before. They’ll figure it out.”
