  • Bateman said keeping the burgundy and gold color scheme is likely one of their priorities with a new name: “That’s not something we ever discussed changing. We want to preserve the history. We have a great history, we want to link it in. The burgundy & gold is an important part of who we are. I can’t see that changing, but that’s not my call.” (John Keim)
