Sweep, the new Utes mascot
The University of Utah announced today that it will have a new mascot early next year. Swoop, the sports mascot of the Utes since 1996, will now be changed to Sweep, a broom which represents not only teamwork, but cleanliness, a key to a successful team and sports arena. "Red-tailed hawks are people too" stated Tom Culpepper, zoologist , and long time student of the indigenous Utah birds. The new broom mascot will be represented by Ryan Busterling, U of U alum and long time college raquetball fan.
