As you faithful readers know, I have become a writer for BYU's newspaper, The Daily Universe, and that I have been placed on the BYU football beat.
This meant that Monday at about 6:30 PM, I was standing outside the Indoor Practice Facility waiting to watch the last minutes of practice and then get interviews.
Not gonna lie, I was a bit star-struck at first. It's a huge building, the players are fully into practice and I'm standing there with a handful of other reporters waiting to talk to whoever I want.
Eventually, I found myself with a tape recorder in Andrew Rich's face (we talked one-on-one; I was the first reporter to get to him after being named MWC Defensive Player of the Week), Bronco Mendenhall's face (with everyone else there), and then Max Hall's face (ditto).
Check back tomorrow for my preview of the Tulane game.
**UPDATE** Here's my game preview for BYU/Tulane this Saturday.
