BYU fans react to Taysom Hill's elbow injury

Taysom Hill came oh, so close.

Playing in his final game at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday night, BYU's senior quarterback was primed to do something he hadn't done since 2013: complete a season without injury.

But in the fourth quarter against the Utah State Aggies, he went down with what appeared to be a serious elbow injury. Coincidentally, it was against the Aggies that he had suffered season-ending injuries twice before.

In the immediate aftermath of the injury, Twitter users reacted, primarily with sadness over the notion that Hill may not be able to play in the Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 21.

A number of folks bemoaned the fact that so many of Hill's injuries have come against Utah State.
