    Is it curious to anyone else that their are two articles about Utah and BYU graduations that have headlines on numbers graduated which highlights 26 grads for Utah and 64 grads for BYU? Sure it's graduation time and their is interest in athletes graduating. But the lower number displayed in the headlines for Utah is dealing with FOOTBALL players whereas BYU's number is 'STUDENT ATHLETES'. Call me sensitive but this is somewhat curious. Maybe I am just having an indignant meltdown.

    Your numbers are correct except that the two articles are counting different classes of student athletes. Utah had 26 football players earn degrees and BYU had 10 football players out of 64 total athletes earn degrees since December.

    gdog,

    We're just a little too sensitive I think. The Utah article was written by DIRK FACER, big time UTAH FAN. He could write the article however he wanted, and he could even update the article now if he really wanted to "compete" with the byu article.

    You're really stretching, looking to find offense on this one. Just calm down and realize its ok to not compare the two schools in everything in life.

    The DN is not out to get you or your utes, I promise. Everyone needs to just calm down

    In fairness, I noted the same thing, though I only read the Ute headline.
