UVSC Trustee to challenge Cannon for 3rd district seat

Former BYU place-kicker and current UVSC Trustee Jason Chaffetz announced today that we will run against Chris Cannon for the republican nomination for Utah's 3rd district congressional seat.

UPDATE: Governor's former chief of staff to run against Cannon

While there was no announcement on what this will mean for his responsibilities at UVSC , we have to speculate that he might be stepping down. This much is for sure, Big Bill would love to have a former trustee (even a former Cougar) in Washington.

Check out the final paragraph in the history section of the wikipedia article on uvsc.

I guess I better post it here, before it gets taken down:

"As a university, UVSC will become UVU. With this designation, the vowel and the consonant open at the top will allow what stinks to dissipate and what gathers from above to settle. Uvulation will become the form of the school song, and the uvula the school mascot."

But we do like the idea of the UVU Uvulas...Go Uvulas!
