Q1. Undrafted rookie quarterback Max Hall will get his first pro start this Sunday when he leads the Arizona Cardinals against the New Orleans Saints. Hall, as an alum of Brigham Young University, joins a long series of Cougars quarterbacks in the NFL. The most notable of those BYU-educated quarterbacks is which Hall of Famer who received a B.A. and a J.D. from BYU?A1. Steve Young, who got his law degree just after throwing for six touchdowns in the Super Bowl in 1994. Young, a great-great-great-grandson of Brigham Young himself, was one of a set of three brothers who all played quarterback for BYU.

Q2. As the NBA preseason begins, all eyes are on the “Miami Thrice” – that is, the Miami Heat’s new power trio of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh. Less attention was given to Miami’s quiet signing this summer of what longtime LeBron sidekick, who followed James to Miami from Cleveland?

A2. Zydrunas Ilgauskas. A 7-foot-3-inch center from Lithuania, “Z” has averaged 7.7 rebounds per game for his career but will likely play fewer minutes for the suddenly talent-heavy Heat.
