01:02 PM ET 08.15 | The Tennessee Volunteers and adidas unveiled some new uniforms for the 2013 college football season earlier this summer, but today it was an alternate uniform that was released, which is creating the buzz. The Vols will have a gray alternate uni, appropriately referred to as "smokey", and it is much more impressive than you may think. There are some teams and color combination that just don't look right with the all gray look, but the light orange and white goes brilliantly. Add in the fact that the team did not tamper with the helmet and kept their orange socks, and the look is complete from head to toe with a solid look that will really pop on the field.

Great thread. Article should be "Tennessee does like 95 % of other schools and gets alternative uniforms"

So, they gonna make the end zone checkerboards gray, too?

Anything to reduce the amount of creamsicle orange.

I kind of like the Prison Biotch unis. Why have alternates?

You know, the gig loses the majority of it's comidic irony (assuming it ever had any) by the sheer volume of UTK threads that we have to endure......UTK gets the most threads of any 4-8 team ever since the ND threads pre-2012

Oh well, just for you...."BP went to the gray uni's at Arky as well.....matched his motorcycle better & much easier to hide bodily secretions on than our traditional red. I guess he feels the same advantages will be had with the gray over that gawd-awful orange when he gets there in 2015 as well".

sheesh


First, he puts up a disclaimer, then seemingly has to work extra hard to get out a semi-decent BP post.


I dunno, WPS. I'm beginning to doubt your commitment level here. BP and UTk both deserve your best efforts. Can't you keep up the energy, the verve, the POWER needed to see this through, to reach the goal, to drive UTk and BP together as star-crossed lovers that finally get their shizzit together!?!!

DIG DEEP, MAN!!!!

Will their new uniforms have Tennessee Correction Facility on the back of the jersey.

August 16, 2013  10:03 AM ET

Was just reading a good piece on tenured coaches being forced out over on ESECPN, and Fat Phil is highlighted

FACT - Tenn has lost 14 of their last 16 conference games!

WTFJJ is up with the daily UTK threads, on a team that has averaged ONE conferene win a year for the last 2 years?

Hell, I gotta stop picking on Tinny et al and UKT....feel like I trying to pick a fight with the special-needs kid in high school. I am ashamed....

*That's UTk, I believe.* But on to the insult:

OT, are you really going to brag about beating Tenn? Claim a victory over the mighty SEC?

You do realize Tenn is 2-14 in conference games over the last 2 years, don't you? Worse record than Colorado or Washington State over the same period....

Somehow, I think you would give us SEC homers a bunch of crap if we started bragging about an Alabama or LSU home win over either Colorado or Washington State as a "Win for the SEC over the 12-Pac"

It is blindingly apparent Tinnie is not online today.

...followed immediately with a "UF never leaves the state for an OOC game" crack or four...
