I am the unsung hero of getting that UTAH on the roof of the fieldhouse. Really.

        So if you remember, it was Keith Van Horn who offered to match contributions, and ended up paying the balance to get that painted.

        I was the one who @’ed Van Horn on twitter to alert him of the campaign.

        It’s true. BTW, I see that billboard every day. I have worked in the shadow of Rice-Eccles for 29 years.

        Go UTES!

        Not all heroes wear capes! God bless all who were involved in that project, it just looks awesome and fits so well.

          Every time I see it in person, and in a game on TV, I feel a small sense of pride. It really, really added something to the stadium.

          Honestly I can’t remember what my username was at the time. It might have been the same as my handle here. It might have been my first account, before the election… Then… I tried a couple different accounts and everything became way too nasty. I quit two years ago, and don’t miss it.

          ETA: Oh, I remember to whom you are referring. No. I was just the one who brought Van Horn into it. I think he put out a call to attention to the campaign and @’ed me back. It was the first mention of it in his timeline. 🙂

            Ok. I know him and his family well. Knew he had played a part in it as well.

              I think Sergeant organized the whole thing. All props to him. I only just @’ed Van Horn, no other Utah pros. Van Horn just seemed like the one guy I followed who might bite. Boy was I right.

        I love that sign and feel $15 worth of pride for my contribution.

          Oh I donated cash too after Van Horn started matching. 🙂

        NICE WORK!!!!!

        Every game I point out “UTAH” on the fieldhouse roof to my wife.  And, I tell her it was the work of a dude on a UTES fan site.  I’m sure she’s tired of me say it, but she humors me.  It was the best damn grassroots campaign of all time!
