Utes, don’t make mountains!

The Internet has been awash with pictures, lately, of supposedly new Ute football uniforms that include a mountain theme.  Fortunately, that may not be the case. Tim Montemayor of 1320-KFAN got a confirmation on that.

Anyway, the mountain idea was something from the mind of a 10-year-old, if you ask me.

All I can say is I hope the Utes don’t ever wear mountain themed uniforms. The Jazz tried that and the design didn’t age well.

Major League Baseball learned long ago that going to classic styles works best. Nobody should revisit the old Astros look. Utah should pay attention. Changing looks isn’t always a terrible plan. But sticking with classic themes is never wrong. No need to make mountains out of molehills.
