    Probably would read better without "the" in front of "UK."

    I predict this will go about as far as those who want "The Eyes of Texas" song or the "Tar Heels" nickname dropped. I.e., not very far.

    Wait... are you saying the “Eyes of Texas”’ song issue has been resolved without any changes?

    Why would the United Kingdom care or have any influence?

    And how many minutes* should each topic get.

    Yes. The minstrel show song implying that escaped slaves can expect the "eyes of Texas" to watch and find them will continue to be played at every University of Texas sporting event. UT promises the song will be ... reimagined.
