Utah State didn't "steal" Penn State's colors. Penn State's colors "evolved" to the Navy & White we now know. PSU's "original" color scheme was Black & Pink, but after continuous washings, the Black faded to a drab gray, and the Pink to a whitish hue. Three years later, PSU adopted the current school colors. So for USU to have "stolen" PSU's colors, they would have had to start with the Black & Pink combo, then move to the Blue & White.

The cougars DID copy USU's colors. That is not a "dark royal". It's Navy. Just like USU.

This whole debate is stupid and juvenile.

BYU's blue color is neater than everyone else's.

Wrong again Navyboy.

BYU created new colors altogether.
In fact, they are patented colors, BYU-blue and BYU-tan.

They are newly minted Pantone colors, which have been registered with the U.S. Patent office, unique and distinct from any other.

Again, you're not having a good week.

The first team to wear Navy Blue....Was Navy!

I like the Navy Blue. In my mind it helps me separate BYU today from back when they were good at football.
