    interesting.  Over the years there had been many discussions about replacing the Ute as the mascot.  They always got that same irrational reaction from alumni "you can't change our mascot!  It's about tradition blah blah blah." So they didn't officially change it, but over the past 8 years or so as I've worked here I've noticed that the Ute references are quietly going away.  Now at games you've got a guy dressed up as a hawk named "Swoop", and they are phasing out the U of Utah logo with the feather on it, etc. So they are still officially the Utes, but there isn't much evidence of it anymore.  It happened so gradually that there's been nary a peep from the traditionalists.
