    So are you all seeing this? There is a slow burn move from the Drum and feathers logo to the double U logo. Me personally I like it.  Two questions 1) are you seeing this like I am that it is a concerted movement?, 2) what do you think?

    I don’t know if it’s a concerted movement but I do love it. My favorite uniform is the “throwback” that they introduced some years ago. I wish it was our normal uni.

    I also like it, but wouldn’t want to lose the drum and feather either. 

    Yes to #1. Most thumbnail logos are the interlocking U…maybe it just displays better as a small image? Could be intentional, who knows? 

    Yes to #2, and hope we see a super cool helmet design this year that’s better than the field goal hands or swoop wings. Didn’t care for either of those, although I could see why folks liked them.

    There’s definitely an intentional effort to move away from the Drum and Feathers. I don’t like the move. The interlocking U’s reminds me too much of Oklahoma and Houston. 

    I do like the throwback uniform, but it would be so much better if they did the same uniform with the Drum and Feather.

      Agreed.  I much prefer the “Drum & Feather” logo over the “interlocking U” one, but wouldn’t be averse to seeing one or two games a year with that 2nd style.  That said, I think it our field would like way cooler if we’d replace that “Block U” at the 50-yd line with the “interlocking U” logo instead.

       

      Most importantly, I hope we never again see the “Rice University wings” or the “field goal hands” helmets ever again.  Those totally SUCKED!

       

      GO UTES!!!

        Interesting that you mention that because I was discussing the midfield logo with my Dad at the Spring game. Personally I’d go with the drum and feather, but I wouldn’t have any problem if they went with the interlocking U’s.

          I believe the “Drum & Feather” would look better than that bland “Block U” we’ve been using, but it might look a bit “too busy” for a midfield design.  The “Interlocking U” in my opinion would be just right.

    I like the interlocking U. DnF is a clean unique look that I don’t think is going away. Marketing the way it is you have to be flashy. Look at the amount of professional team logos.

    I really liked the spring game helmets. The number on one side and interlocking U on the other looked sharp. Maybe use feather stickers hanging from the U for certain accomplishments. Captain, Dean’s list, degree, etc..

    I like the DnF in concept, but it is in dire need of an update.

    It is seriously one of the most poorly rendered logos still in wide use.

    I think that relates to some of the appeal of the clean and orderly interlocking U’s.

    Correct me if I am wrong but if they just remove the drum and keep the feather we have no problem with any Native American backlash.

    Some of the transition seems to not necessarily be away from the drum and feather, but also away from the block U (especially TV graphics.) In my opinion the interlocking U’s and the D&F are both preferable to the block U. I’ve held off getting a U of U license plate for years because the only option at the moment is the block U. If they went back to the either of the other logos I’d order one in a heart beat.
