Rise & Shout: Aug 2 Links

It's day one of fall camp! Here are the stories we are reading this morning:

After previous photos of its progress, BYU unveiled the new, renovated football lobby yesterday. Man does that look nice. Others agree.

Good news for Utah County BYU fans -- 1280 The Zone is launching "Cougar Blue" on its Provo affiliate 960 AM. Host Alema Harrington will talk BYU sports every weekday from Noon to 3:00 pm -- while Jake Hatch will be producing the show. Congrats on the gig, Jake!

Great find from our friend @TDAWGCOUG: here's the initial proposal BYU gave to the Provo City for the new video boards and ribbons for LaVell Edwards stadium. Interesting to see the drawings and renderings.

Single game football tickets are now on sale (or will be soon, depending who you are). Cougar Club members can buy today, season ticket holders tomorrow, and the general public can begin buying on Tues, August 7th.

Sad story for Olympian and BYU alum Arielle Martin. The BMX biker was injured seriously during her final training routine before flying to London, and will therefore miss the Olympics. The good news is that while the injuries were initially considered life threatening, she recovered quite quickly in the first day. Best wishes to Arielle and her husband.

Here's a use of cell phones I can get behind, from @DevinD33.

And a quick reminder to listen to this week's Rise & Shout Podcast.
