Last week, University of Utah president David Pershing amended the school's century-old fight song, altering several phrases deemed outdated and sexist. So far, the move has sparked more jeers than cheers.

On Wednesday at 12:15 p.m., ASUU president Justin Spangler, student senate chair Rachel Wootton and former ASUU president Sam Ortiz join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to discuss what led to the changes, student and community reaction and how fans will sing in the fall and beyond.
