UT LB Dontavis Sapp on the importance of a positive attitude.
Tennessee coach Butch Jones hinted to fans that the Vols might unveil a special uniform, but he emphasized that it would respect the program’s traditions.
Jones had already confirmed some small changes to the 2013 uniform, including a Tennessee state patch. But many teams unveil special uniforms for big games that are popular with recruits, players and fans.
Jones said recruiting is a factor in uniform changes, but said he is as devoted to UT’s traditions as fans.
“I think I’ve proven that,” he said.
Even so, could there be further changes forthcoming?
"There may be something coming,” Jones said without elaboration, “but everything we do will respect our traditions at Tennessee."
