Top 5 BYU Quarterbacks of All Time

As Cougar Nation is getting whipped into a frenzy waiting for the 2012 football campaign to begin, here is a topic of debate that I often hear among the Cougar fans I visit with on a regular basis, who is the best quarterback ever at BYU?

As this debate renews from year to year, I have decided it must be a generational thing when it comes to the answers given.  There is no question that BYU has produced some of the best college quarterbacks of all-time, but as with any list, there always has to be a number one.

Think of the players who have passed through Cougar Stadium/LaVell Edwards Stadium: Nielsen, Wilson, McMahon, Young, Bosco, Detmer, Sarkisian, Doman, Beck and Hall.  Looking at those names, you'll notice each one has played a role in continuing the quarterback tradition at Quarterback U. Each won a conference championship and put up big numbers when they donned the Y on their helmets.  It would be easy to take those 10 and create a top-10 list of all-time.

So all that said, here is my list of the top 5 quarterbacks to have passed the pigskin at BYU.
