THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH FIGHT SONG TASK FORCE HAS SPOKEN... SLIGHTLY ALTERING A FEW WORDS, TO MAKE THE SONG MORE INCLUSIVE.

SCHOOL STUDENT AFFAIRS VICE PRESIDENT BARB SNYDER SAYS, THE TASK FORCE RECOMMENDATIONS FOLLOW LOTS OF DISCUSSION.

THE FIGHT SONG COMMITTEE HAS DETERMINED, THE WORD "FAN" CAN BE USED -- AS AN ALTERNATE TO "MAN" -- THROUGHOUT THE SONG.

ADDITIONALLY, THE PREVIOUS LYRIC: 'OUR COEDS ARE THE FAIREST"... HAS BEEN CHANGED TO "OUR STUDENTS ARE THE FINEST."

AND, THE HISTORIC LINE, "NO GANG OF COLLEGE MEN"... HAS BEEN ALTERED TO: "NO RIVAL BAND OF COLLEGE FANS."

SCHOOL OFFICIALS ARE ALSO QUICK TO ADD... FANS WHO PREFER THE TRADITIONAL LYRICS ARE WELCOME TO CONTINUE SINGING THEM, WITH PRIDE.
