Happy Easter everyone, and the significance and importance of this day goes beyond anything written on this blog.
However, this blog also is meant to be fun so as we approach Easter Sunday, I asked a hard-hitting question to some of the Wyoming football players and coaches — their favorite Easter candy.
Here are the results:
— Sophomore kicker Cooper Rothe: Carmel eggs
