As the sands shift in college athletics, the Pac-12 and by extension, Utah is trying to maintain firm footing. This week, U. President David Pershing was among the Pac-12 leaders who signed a letter in support of the NCAA's proposal to grant autonomy to athletics' most prominent conferences, and Pac-12 Commissioner sat down with Big Ten counterpart Jim Delaney to talk future.
Baseball • The Utes wrapped up a disappointing 2014 campaign Sunday, losing twice in a doubleheader for a Stanford sweep. Now they'll wait to see what happens June 5 at the MLB draft. Utes coach Bill Kinneberg said Sunday he expects between two and five players to be selected, including junior hurler Mitch Watrous. The Tribune also caught up this week with former Ute C.J. Cron, who wasted no time making an impression with the Los Angeles Angels.
