Sports fans are fickle, but hey, if you pay $9 for a plate of cold nachos, you've earned the right.
Utah Jazz fans debate about their team uniforms a lot, and many seem to think new is always better.
ESPN recently released its Uniform Watch Power Rankings -- I know, what? -- as they ranked all 122 uniform sets from the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL.
According to that group, the Jazz have the fourth best NBA uniform concept behind the Celtics, Lakers and Spurs.
The St. Louis Cardinals top the overall list, followed by the Chicago Bears and Montreal Canadiens.
Utah was 21st overall. Now if the Jazz could just win an NBA title.

Weber State football returns to KLO Radio this year, and that's great.

Another note, beginning Monday, BYURadio will premier BYU Sports Nation, the first live daily college sports talk show dedicated to a specific university sports program.
Big Sky Conference student-athletes have one more accomplishment to chase: a spot in the Big Sky Undergraduate Journal.
The inaugural edition of "Skyline - The Big Sky Undergraduate Journal" debuted online a couple of weeks ago.
The journal features academic research and writing by undergraduate students at all 13 of the league's institutions.
And this stuff is impressive: Research articles that range from microbial populations in synthetic turf, to the effect of hydration education on female gymnasts, as well as various articles discussing concussions in athletics and gender equality. It's also open to art submissions.
For example, WSU's Jason J. Bass and David W. Hintze published "Determination of Microbial Populations in a Synthetic Turf System;" while the Wildcats' Annika Karlsen published
"College Tennis Players: Pressure, Abuse, Support and Involvement from Parents."
Also, Southern Utah's Rebecca S. Moore and Natalie Bryslan published "The Effect of Education on Hydration Status of Female Collegiate Gymnasts at Southern Utah University; while Kalin Beal and Trevor Laursen published "Coaches Opinions on the Use of Genetic Screening for Assessment of Collegiate Athletes."
