The more I think about it; the angrier I get!!! Our school colors have ALWAYS been Orange & White & that's the way it should stay! Period.

Whomever decided they had the authority to change our school's colors needs to be fired immediately or given a stern warning & a History lesson! And I don't care if it was the President, or Jones or Hart, etc. No one has the right to change our school's colors. I thought the black & orange Halloween thing was atrocious, but that was ONE game. Coach Jones, we're not Oregon & we don't want to be Oregon. We're UT and our colors are Orange & White!!! Pls wear those "new" uniforms one time for an away game at Austin Peay or somewhere & then let's go back to our tradition! Please!

Always a Vol - Orange & White Vol

I respectfully disagree sir. Black ('smokey' for the marketing dweebs who came up with that) HAS ALWAYS BEEN A TRADITIONAL AND OFFICIAL UT COLOR.

Please read the Volquest link below.

But you and I have been down this road before.

We really are in the 21st Century. Whether or not you like Oregon's styling .. RECRUITS DO!

I predict ALL CBF teams will be doing this. Those who do so sooner, will gain benefits. Those who do so later, will have lost the opportunity to build on the benefits that could have been gained.

I've said this before, I'll say it again, of course you are free to disagree.

The uniforms are the Volunteer Football Program's. And that is for the players. Let them choose what makes them feel good, feel excited to wear, feel empowered when they run through the T. It's their team and their uniform, we are just and only their fans and should support them, unless they decide on pink tutus --- well any color tutu)

But these new unis, this is a good thing. It is not a bad thing.

Orange and White will ALWAYS be our primary school colors, make no mistake about that.
Orange and White will always be what we see on the field for the far greater percentage of games.

But this black (smokey if you wish) uni?

I really do like it! More important is, The Players Like It! It's what they want to wear.

great post! as long as we as fans fill the stadium with orange, it's all good. orange and white. or even just white. i couldn't imagine the crowd having a "smokey out", with just the smokey gray, like a white out, but who am i to say that that'll never happen.

"I predict ALL CBF teams will be doing this. Those who do so sooner, will gain benefits. Those who do so later, will have lost the opportunity to build on the benefits that could have been gained." - very well put!!!
