    Wyoming Cowboys - New Uniforms

    The standard for trademark infringement is ‘likelihood to lead to confusion’ amongst consumers/persons. The horseshoe with the Steamboat look alike in the middle would undoubtedly infringe.

    Wyoming Cowboys - New Uniforms

    The university of Wyoming owns a registered trademark on the logo (copyrights pertain typically to works of art).

    I believe you are referring to a federal trademark.
  4. No this is not happening thankfully. Ethics still mean something and Burman is sticking to his guns.
  5. I'm not sure if you are referring to me, and, if so, how you come to such an impression. I like Wyoming's series with NMSU and would be going to Las Cruces if it weren't in the heat of August. Wyoming and NMSU have had a pretty consistent scheduling in basketball over recent years and it has been a great series.
  6. Has there been any discussion of a rivalry trophy with BYU? For all intents and purposes this game is for the Western Football Independents Chanpionship.
  7. This has all the makings of a great rivalry. It actually would make sense if NMSU and BYU played a home and home against each other every year. Helps fuel this tremendous rivalry of similar independents and eases the scheduling concerns of both schools. Perhaps this is why NMSU scheduled the home and home with Liberty his year (to test the waters and work on the logistics of the H&H with the church school and give BYU time to adjust its schedule to make it happen going forward).

    Urban Myer might be bye bye

    I'm sure this letter has been reviewed and edited by many parties. But from my perspective, it would have been a much more succinct and more general letter had it come directly from the lawyer (lawyers always worry about what may be discovered later that would allow their client's credibility to be impeached by letters such as this). So at least I can say that I believe Urban Meyer probably had direct involvement with the drafting of this letter which is actually relatively uncommon for these types of situations.

    Yo Jalapeño, you got some 'splainin' to do...

    I believe that might be true (or was true at some recent point) based upon a mailer I received saying that. In the energy world, just being able to say you have a Mines degree goes a long ways and it can be a bit of an uphill battle for the non-Mines graduate when competing for the same job. I'm not saying that it is fair or not because there are fine graduates from all colleges and universities.

    I guess I care more about the reason for going to college in my opinion...it's called the ability to get a good job. I'm yet to meet a Mines grad working at Starbucks but I have met plenty of folks with an extensive background in 18th century English literature.

    As attendance at 'Coors Lab' is always high, I don't think Mines would disagree too much with Fum.

    I'm guessing you aren't an attorney

    I don't care either. But it appears that there is a lot hate for Urban Meyer with folks hoping that he be let go. The best thing that could happen to him personally would be for Ohio State to cut ties with him as he would be in demand for any job he wants (TV, NFL, etc..) and he would still collect a big check for work that he did not perform.

    Fire a coach for that, at a public institution, and you're on the hook for quite a buyout. Based on Urban's comments, I am thinking he wants to collect a big check to take some time off coaching again. Win-win for him.

    I'm sorry but this is a load of crap. Colorado School of Mines is the top school in Colorado for what it is. 'The number of degrees' a college offers should never be a criteria as to whether it is a good college.
