    Alex is total class and has done the University of Utah proud. Alex never says anything nasty about others and works on all sorts of causes to help those in need.

    Max Hall, on the other hand, is the exact opposite saying nasty and false things about people.

    Being a diehard fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, I as well took time time to watch/listen to Smith's address. He truly is a class act on and off the field...and a great representative of the University of Utah.

    With regard to the rivalry between the Utes and the BYU Cougars, I have mixed feelings. The sports program at BYU is exceptional...one of my Missouri Tigers may transfer there and it will truly be a gain to BYU; however Alex Smith tilted my alliance toward the Utes.

    Go Chiefs!

    It's great to see the University keeping it's distinguished alumni close and involved. One thing that has always impressed me about the University of Utah is the great effort they put into keeping you involved after you graduate. It makes the school stronger and builds stronger ties to graduates and the communities in which they live.

    Welcome back Alex! One of the classiest people in all of sports and has already donated a ton of money back to the football program!

    We owe him forever for earning our first BCS win and getting the ball rolling towards our Pac 12 invitation.

    The university will never be the same because of that move. Alex, we thank you!

    Go Alex
    Go Chiefs
    Go Utes
    Go Pac 12
