I think they look good, but they could be even better. They seem incomplete - maybe it's the helmet...
I reserve the right to hold my opinion until I see them on the field, on a gameday.
They look decent enough on individual players, but... how will they look when you have 11 of them on the field?
How will the linemen/linebackers appear when they are shoulder to should?
How will the o-line/qb/rb's look when they are in formation?
I'm not sure, but I have a feeling it will be much easier to make a strong opinion after seeing them on gameday.
They may appear very attractive after seeing them in action - or - they may look worse than they appear on a single individual modeling them.
Personally, I think they should do a modern reproduction of the historic UT jerseys - dating back to the first leather helmet unis.
Maybe they could break a new version out at homecoming each year... I know some of the old uniforms would look awesome if they were modernized, such as;
the long-sleeved orange jersey with the white 'box' on the mid-chest, a white 'box' on the interior bicep, and a white box on the interior forearm.
the very dark navy blue (it looks almost black) long-sleeved jersey with a large orange 'Power T' on the upper chest, off-white boxes on the top of shoulders, and a long white box on the back of the arm, extending from wrist to tricep.
the very dark solid navy blue long-sleeved jersey, with 10 orange stripes on the sleeves, extending from wrist to just beneath the arm-pit area.
I think modernizing any of those jerseys (which were the #2, #3, & #4 series of jerseys ever worn by the vols) would be quite impressive.
Also, doing something like that is something that other teams aren't already doing a lot and it should serve to keep the traditionalist fans from puking in their mouth when they see them on the field.
