At the opening of the new Pitt Studios at Petersen Events Center, Athletic Director Heather Lyke told a reporter that she’s been considering returning to the royal blue and yellow colors that Pitt used from 1973 to ’97.
According to the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat, Lyke said “that will be something exciting for us to talk about in the near future.”
The colors, which were replaced by the current navy and gold, can be seen throughout the studios. The new studios will be the hub for Pitt broadcasts on the ACC Network, which will go live in 2019. It also will give students broadcast experience.
We know some of you still have those shirts, jackets and more from Pitt’s glory days. We want to see them. Send us a photo, either current or vintage, of you and your gear in these popular Pitt colors to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll gather them all together and put them on utimes.pitt.edu for everyone to see.
