Rock On: 'Utah Man/Fan' conundrum
The University of Utah changed the lyrics of its fight song, early this month, declaring phrases such as “coeds are the fairest” and “Utah Man” insensitive and outdated.
But Utah isn’t alone in its angst.
As the Omaha World-Herald notes, Mississippi shortened its fight song to avoid the phrase “The South will rise again!” New Mexico State, despite periodic considerations, is sticking with “when we win this game, we’ll buy a keg of booze, and drink it to the Aggies ‘til we wobble in our shoes.”
Rock On isn’t bothered by changes in the Ute song. All he wants to know is where “warmest gang in town” fits into the BYU-Utah rivalry.
