How could they make this sort of mistake?  Don't they understand American sports?  How hard could it be to distinguish?













I mean, clearly the University of Miami has a larger salary cap.   Devil

Perhaps "NFL" is just a generic term for "American Football." You know, like "Kleenex" means all facial tissues.  Don't Know

Your logical response serves no purpose as related to my send up of "The U".  Chair

What's a "Ute"?  Is that related to a former local Native American tribe? (guessing from the logo)

From Wikipedia:

Quote
The Utes (/juːts/; "yoots") are an ethnically related group of American Indians now living primarily in Utah and Colorado. There are three Ute tribal reservations: (1) Uintah-Ouray in northeastern Utah (3,500 members), (2) Southern Ute (1,500 members) and (3) Ute Mountain (2,000 members) both in southwestern Colorado. (All numbers are approximate) The name of the state of Utah was derived from the name Ute.

Not former, they're still around.  The state is named after them and the school is known as the Running Utes although PC effected a change in mascot to a red tailed hawk in the past decade or two.

Ah, thanks guys.  That's interesting, I had no idea.  I just assumed it was a nickname for a resident of Utah.  Good stuff.
