    Just sent this to President Pershing...

    Dear President Pershing,

    As a life-long Ute, (my father had season tickets when the basketball team played at the Deseret Gym), an alum, a season ticket holder for both football and basketball, and a strong Crimson Club supporter, I want to encourage you to retain the words to "Utah Man."

    Changing "Utah man" to "Utah fan" does not seem more inclusive. In the same way the Declaration of Independence declares "all men are created equal," the word "man" used in the song applies to all, not simply to the male gender.

    While the student leaders are an important part of the University community and it is good their voices have been heard, they are not the only members of the community. Faculty, staff, alumni and all current students voices count and should be heard. In my opinion, those offended by the words to the fight song are searching hard for something about which to be offended. There are far more important issues facing the university and the community at large.

    Please do not change the words to "Utah Man." It has been an important part of the University of Utah and it's supporters for generations. As a supporter of the University and as a woman, I have been and will always be a "Utah Man."

    Thank you.

    My REAL concerns about Utah Man

    by GvilleUte

    Personally, I'm more concerned about the obvious references to drug use ("snuff", "jolliest"), gambling ("never bluff") and gang-affiliation ("gang" appears twice!), not to mention the pro-yelling and shouting stance the song takes. How about a little peace and quiet, amirite?

    I think the folks at ASUU need to talk to the ones at ASUCLA about the Bruin fight song, "Sons of Westwood:"

    We are Sons of Westwood,
    and we hail Blue and Gold.

    True to thee our hearts will be;
    our love will not grow old.

    FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

    Bruins roam the hills of Westwood
    By the blue Pacific shore.

    And when we chance to see
    a man from U. S. C.,
    Ev'ry Bruin starts to ROAR!

    U (clap clap clap)
    C (clap clap clap)
    L (clap clap clap)
    A (clap clap clap)
    U-C-L-A Fight, Fight, Fight.[/QUOTE]

    I used to think we could beat any team at any time.

    Then the TCU game happened and things changed man, things changed.

    Using the word man or men to reflect a population has been done forever and is considered proper English.

    Even in our Constitution - "...that all men are created equal."

    If you use it in the right context - like the Utah fight song or our Constitution as examples - it's understood that it includes all genders.

    • On the internet, there are people called "Trolls" -- not because they look like monsters -- but because they troll around different message boards, throwing out little baited hooks hoping to get a bite from some eager fish. And like any fisherman, the Trolls won't stay very long if no one bites
