Doing so probably saved the Utes thousands of dollars in travel expenses once the regionals were announced last week. Other Utah teams weren’t so lucky, causing all kinds of headaches and travel nightmares.

Having a few more teammates for the experience, however — that’s a bit unprecedented for the current crop of Aggies. In years past, NCAA regionals were more of a solitary affair for USU. The best individuals in the program would compete in the all-around or their respective disciplines. The fun part of going to Fayetteville, Ark., this year for Jones, Sarah Landes and Stefanie Daley is that, for the first time sin...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The two dozen or more pro football scouts who came up to Utah State took them with a tape measure. After all of the 18 former Aggies prospects had run their 40-yard dashes once through, they measured the hashmarks of Utah State’s indoor facility to make sure the athletes were running the right distance. Once satisfied that the Aggies had the same field markings as every other football field in the country, they return...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
