Cause I'm so Bored!

July just stinks if you are a college football fan. Recruiting has slowed down. Spring practice is over. Seven-on-seven reports are few and far between. The boredom is overwhelming. To help pass the time, Rob James takes a comical look at the quotes and sounds of summer.

Here are several questions and answers for some of the central characters of BYU Football. Following the Q&As are some of the summer sound bytes you might catch around Provo.
