I think the alternate uni is great. But after seeing the players' reaction, I know it's great. Regardless of what anyone outside the team thinks, it doesn't matter. I was born and raised in Knoxville, raised a Vol fan. I did not attend the university, my brother did, I decided to serve. So, with that being said, I may not have paid money to be a Volunteer, I was born one instead, by the grace of God. I don't know how many people on this site know what it's like to be a part of something bigger than themselves, but this uniform is just that. It's bigger than any fans' or alums opinion. I'm not a fan of a particular color, or jersey, or helmet, I'm a fan of the team of young men who choose to represent my state on the football field. And if anyone chooses to rebut my statement, don't talk to me about tradition, I'm in a branch of service that's older than the nation itself.
