Without a contract extension and faced with the prospect of going into battle with unproven players, Corbin realized months ago his situation was precarious. “I would have liked things to be handled differently, but they weren’t,” he said Thursday. “So it is what it is. We’ll see where things go and move on.” Interesting choice of words. Corbi...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
