It's time we start focusing on dumb questions by reporters, not the responses of athletes when asked dumb questions. Another one comes to mind after Collies burns the U secondary on 4th and 18 to keep a drive a live, the question asked that set up his famous quote.

So rather than analyze Harper, go after the reporter who either wasn't informed enough to ask a proper question, or was lame enough hoping to get Harper over a barrell and say something stupid. Start highlighting dumb questions that reflect "yellow journalism".

Shame on SUU. Has any SUU athlete in the history or the school accomplished as much as Levins? And depending on how he does in the olympics, he could be the outstanding athlete in the State of Utah this year.

Also, @3grandslams--RIGHT ON!!!!!!

The awards will always go the "glory" sports (basketball, football, ect) athletes.

It's this way at all levels of athletics. I've seen an All-American swimmer, who captained the State Championship swim team, set a state record, and was Valedictorian of the high school.

Who got the "Best Academic Athlete award?"
The football quarterback with a GPA sub 3.4.
