How do you really feel about Max Hall?
I had an interesting conversation with my dad over the weekend. He was reading the sports section, which featured a big story about Max Hall, and he started shaking his head.
"I don't know about Max Hall," he declared. "There's something about him I just don't like."
I dropped my jaw and stared at him in disbelief.
"Dad, Max Hall is by far the best quarterback in the MWC and arguably one of the top five quarterbacks in the nation," I said.
"I know... but I still don't like him."
This shocked me. I nearly dropped my bowl of Kashi. I mean, I know Max has had his down moments, and he certainly has his flaws, but has he really become the guy everybody hates? Is my dad a little bonkos, or is he voicing the opinion shared by the majority of Cougar Nation?
I guess there are two schools of thought. There's the curmudgeonly "Max Hall hasn't proved anything, and makes too many mistakes in big games" school, and the "Max Hall is one of the most accurate, efficient, big-game quarterbacks BYU has ever had" school.
I think I'm in the latter. What about you? How do you really feel about Max Hall? Can he win the big game? Can he lead us to our dream season in 2009? How will he do against the Sooners?
