Kristin Murphy,
Head coach Kalani Sitake talks to members of the media at BYU Football Media Day at BYU Broadcasting in Provo on Friday, June 23, 2017.

In episode 287 of the Deseret News Rise & Shout Podcast, Matt and I examine why our expectations rise in the summer despite no new information about the football team. Why does 11-2 seem so possible in July? We also break down the offseasons for Utah and Utah State, and discuss how independence is treating BYU.
