We know you have questions. Lots of them. Hopefully, we can get you answers.
So we're offering a new feature: A chance for you to ask questions about anything related to the athletic department -- from a specific team to a way to communicate indirectly with athletic director Julie Hermann. Email me and I will do my best to get an answer to most reasonable inquiries, though you should be forewarned: Starting Aug. 1 I will be at football practice on a daily basis filing reports each day. So football will be the emphasis then.
The hope is, with enough questions from you, we will start a weekly mailbag (or two, if needed).
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to hear from you soon.
