Around the Hill, 4/10/2022: Mike Saunders, Holly Waxman, Utah Football Hot Takes

Hi everyone! I’m sure many of you have noticed that links have been infrequent lately. Things have been busy in my personal life and unfortunately they will continue over the next two weeks as I take final exams and graduate. I’ll still work to post them a few times a week, but once graduation is over, you can expect to get back to your usual daily dose of Utah Athletic news. Thanks for your patience!
