Hey, Everyone! I’m sure many of you have noticed that the links have been infrequent lately. Things have been busy in my personal life and unfortunately will continue over the next couple of weeks as I take finals and graduate. I will still work to get these out a couple times a week, but once graduation is over you can expect to return to your regular daily dose of Utah Athletic news. Thank you for your patience!
