This is a message about transformation. Two years ago, the new publishers of UteFans.net decided that they wanted to reimagine the original message board beloved by countless Ute Fans. Many of you remember: Started in 1999 by Chris Evans, Utefans.net quickly became a hub for Utah Sports for many memorable years. Unfortunately, Chris passed in 2017, and the site was left in a state of disarray. With a little luck and a lot of hard work, a few of us had the privilege of saving the site and bringing it to where it is today.
As Urban Meyer said prior to the 2004 football season, “You ain’t seen nothing yet!” Now, in 2021, Utefans.net has decided to expand even farther. We have added capable new staff and we have revamped the website. Our primary goal: to give the college athlete a unique new voice.
Utefans.net is now more than just a message board. It will be a digital platform designed to tell the true story of the student-athlete. In other words, Utefans.net is back with a vengeance—keeping the best old traditions while adding multiple new features that will delight all Ute fans.
Moving forward, you will see Utefans.net serving as an information and discussion portal for ALL University of Utah Division 1 sports. We will support the athletes and the school we love. We want advocacy for our athletes, and we want the University of Utah to shine. We are grateful for the many contributions our members have made over the years, and we invite you to join us now as we all see that diverse network expand.
