The helmet was good enough for them, Pitt recently took off the "chipmunk" and put back "Pitt" in school font, but hasn't gone back to the old style 1960's to 1990's that saw the Panthers win one National Championship outright (1976) and rank #1 in some polls in 1980 and 1981.

I did like the idea of going to PittSBURGH in the late 90's but would rather see the good ol design come back and call it Pitt again.

Here's the petition:

I don't have much of a preference. But I will say this, the "chipmunk" you refer to always reminded me of the dog things in Ghostbusters.

"I am the keymaster!" :)

Never really saw it like that Gerbil lol. I am not a big fan of the whole "Pitt" thing but I do appreciate the tradition, and the ones right now look too much like Notre Dame or an AFL team.

I see the petition is up to almost 700 signatures now, kind of hilarious some of them (seems like the Frats are up to something on Rush) :lol:

Bring back the "Pitt" script, striping, and design of the old uniform.

However, keep the "Vegas" gold & "Navy" blue of the new Pitt.

The Pitt/Pirates' mustard, Steelers' orangish-yellow, and Penguin Columbian blue are things that belong in the past (or a "throwback day" or two - maybe a rarely worn alternate, perhaps), IMO.

No, Pgh, I did not sign it. I would want it known that I'm for the old font & stripes, but against the old color scheme.

There's a place in my heart (and Snoop Dogg's too, apparently) for the old Panther/Bucco mustard, but I feel it went out with the Steel industry of the 70's. :)

Hey, i'm still adjusting to the new Penguin gold switch-aroo.

Snoop Dog huh? never knew he was a Pitt fan :lol:

I do like reading the petition sometimes Christopher Reeve (sp) signed it giving a very hilarious address, so did Jock Sutherland from his plot over at Calvary. See what you are up against here DTJ :lol:.
