Nice find. That one must have been buried deep in the archives.

Very few schools wore their colors in that era. Black was a standard jersey. Not a tradition. Since 1922 Life is Orange and White unless you are an Oklahoma State or Oregon State Fan. Black does make a good high school jersey though.

If Nike made a jersey for us I bet it would look like the black jersey w/ the power T in the front and the patches.

Prayers

Let's pray Nike never makes a uniform for us. I don't want to look like a Power Ranger.

The black one looks like what you'd wear under a jersey and the one next to it looks like a baseball uniform.

Very few? It seems Tennessee wore their colors in "that" era. See the orange "T" on the black jersey? See the orange stripes on the arms of the other black jersey (Princeton copy)? Not high schools teams. Tennessee.

Why not just say you hate the thought of the Vols ever again having a black jersey?

Loved the black, would like to see it occasionally. I think a lot of us had seen the jerseys, but I've never seen it framed like that. Cool picture man.

I remember reading an interview from Hammy about this subject. The fact that TN had used black in the past is why he allowed it to happen. The black jersey would be good for a special games. Kind of like ND with the green jersey. I like traditional stuff but if something gets the kids to go out and play like they did the last time they wore them then I am all for it.
