Article quote: "So, why did Edwards pick USU over BYU? Cows. “If I’d gone to the Y., I would have had to live at home, and my job would have been milking the cows," Edwards told BYUCougars.com. "I was sick of milking those two darned cows. I’d have gone to Utah to get away from ‘em. Well maybe not Utah, but I wanted to get away.”"
