Enjoy this "win"


Meanwhile our seniors are preparing for the career 4-0 SWEEP!

That's right.

"Superstars" Hoffman and Van Noy don't know what it is like to beat their rival.

Love the Utes helmet and uni's. No problem with BYU's but they seem pretty generic. Florida State has the best in the country; and they didn't even make the top 5. The season can't start soon enough; now we are debating helmets.

9th in the conference has a nice ring to it. 5th in the nation has a nicer ring to it. lol.

4th in the nation is even nicer than 5th.

My cousin teaches art at a middle school in Pennsylvania. I'll have her poll her kids to see which logo they think is prettiest. That has as much, or more, credence as a Racing Editor for Athlon Sports! LOL

If in the mind of one man, byU is 4th in the country in the "logo war", so be it. byU fans are used to have victories that are made up in someone's head.

On September 21st, Utah will give byU it's #4 ... loss in a row.

Go Utes!

Now I have heard it all however, I am laughing that there are Ute fans who read the article and commented on this subject. Gracious comments from UteNationAlum are appreciated.

You can just feel the jealousy oozing from the hill today.

BYU - 4th Nationally
Utah - 9th PACally

Sounds about right.

The Stretch Y is cool but I don't much care about how it ranks. I do enjoy the utah "fan" angst over it though.


springville, UT

One thing we wont see is the U playing in a bowl game. 9th in the pac ten is about where the utes belong.

It's laughable that you accuse BYU of "copying" Yale's "Y" simply because both schools use the letter "Y" in their logos, especially when dozens of schools use other single letters like "U" in their logos.

A school that copied "The U" and the "U" sign from the University of Miami and copied The Prince Edward Island Regiment's military march "Old Solomon Levi" as their fight song should just keep silent when it comes to copying from other schools.

"This is such a waste of time that I am going to read it and comment on it

Three times.

Logos are very relevant and thus, ranking how recognizable those logos are is just as relevant. It is interesting that so many utes find this article a waste of time but they read and and commented.

Who has the better logo is insignificant as far as determining who has the better team, but it's sure fun watching the bee that this has placed in the bonnet of the kids on the hill.

BYU #4 in the Nation.
Utah #9 in the PAC.

"When it comes to marketability, BYU is winning the battle with rival Utah, according to one national publication."

Apparently the legacy program is more marketable then USC as well. Congrats! I think.

Take a look at the Washington redskins logo, then at Utah's, and tell me who is ripping off who.

In the end who cares....did Green Bay rip off the G logo from Georgia or did Georgia rip it off from Grambling and then Green Bay ripped it off of them? Don't know, don't care.

I like the stretch Y and the redskins/utes logo...their both cool and classic, though I agree with another poster that I'm surprised the liberal hippies in the PAC12 still allow the utes logo. I mean the conference tells U everything else to do, so if they asked U to get rid of the racially charged logo, we all know U would jump and ask how high on the way up.

Okay wait... I just read the Athlon article. I was expecting to find how their "research" on how ESPN exposure, "[w]hen it comes to marketability", has led to "BYU is winning the battle with rival Utah".

Instead its an opinion a graphic artist. Not a sample size of 100, or 10 but ONE.

"And since Athlon Sports has been designing the best looking magazines on newstands for the better part of half a century, we'd thought we'd turn our graphic design guru loose on college football's logos. Here are Athlon Sports Art Director Matt Taliaferro favorite football logos — and a few he can't stand."

Rumor has it that BYU was 3 plays from being ranked #1.

The Utes logo lost points because "the circle has an outdated helmet feel to it."
Georgia was rated as the third best logo. Hmmm ... Georgia basically has the letter "G" in black and white on an orange helmet. Tell me that doesn't have an outdated feel to it.

That's A Good One,

Silly little coug, stick to not having undefeated seasons and playing in BCS bowl games because anyone with a brain knows BYU will never catch Utah in BCS bowl games and going forward Utah will make another one long before BYU makes their first. And I'm guessing your reply will be something about a national championship which you can brag about all you want because anyone with a brain knows there should be an asterisk next to it considering it was awarded after pounding a stellar MIchigan team with a 6-5 record by a whole 7 points.

Sandy, UT

Who cares what Athlon thinks about Utah's logo? It is obviously more attractive to recruits than BYU's logo.
