The Smokey Mountains: Tennessee Unveils New Gray Alternate Football Jersey
Published August 16, 2013
COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE: In Knoxville, Dan Fleser writes under the header, "Reaction To New UT Uniforms Likely Generational" (KNOXVILLE NEWS-SENTINEL, 8/16). In Nashville, David Climer writes the "best thing you can say" about UT’s alternate uniform is that it "could’ve been worse." Compared to "some of the competition (read: Oregon), UT kept it fairly tame." However, UT "will not make Mr. Blackwell’s list." Jones said, "Make no mistake about it, we don't want to be a program that has wholesale changes. It's a tradition-rich program. There's only one Tennessee." Jones added one of the "top three questions we are asked in recruiting is about our uniforms, our jersey colors" (Nashville TENNESSEAN, 8/16).
