    Better than Adidas, but ugh, that is a lot of orange.

    I’ll say this for them: that’s about as good as you can get with puke orange as one of your colors…

    Nike is leaps and bounds better than Adidas. Tennessee was smart to make the move. I pray Louisville stays with Adidas forever. They probably will because it’s all about money to them; but I thank my lucky stars that UK is a Nike school.

    I think UTK wore the “battle greys” one time. The powers to be in Knoxville don’t like change when it comes to the football uni’s; kinda like Penn State or Alabama. Don’t look for very many “alternate” looks for the Vol’s this fall.

    Slow day? Why do we care? They’re pretty bland (which is good) when it comes to new unis. The subtly of the shape of the state in the S’s and E’s is cool, I guess. The checkerboard should be incorporated more. But alas, who cares?

    I’d rather a post about the options of UK coaches’ polo shirts than anything to do with Tennessee, unless they debuted orange jumpsuits.

    Those are some sweet helmets. Granted, no where near as cool as UK’s Chrome domes…but the foggy mountains are really cool. Props to Nike.

    No matter how much you church-up those jerseys, they’ll still always be covered in puke-colored orange. If they’d twinge that color a bit (either darker or lighter), I think Nike could almost make them look bearable. But as it stands, they still look like an eyesore.

    I guess even Nike can’t polish a turd.

      A turd? From a fan of UK football? Pot meet kettle.
