VOL NATION #team117 is working hard to rise to the top. The support of our fans is helping us get there #VFL #GBO #VOLNATION
I hadnít seen this discussed and thought Iíd point it out as something they are doing to help focus team unity on the 2013 squad.

Did the same thing at UC. Last years team was "Team 125." Hope it works here.

This is the 117th year of football for the team. That is what the number is associated with.

So UC has an older football program that UT?

Surprising.

I find that odd since in 1990 the Homecoming theme as Cheers to 100 years. Now I know that UT didn't field teams during the World Wars but I would have thought UT would be in the 120's.

Maybe they deleted the Dooley tenure from the official record books.

Rutgers and Princeton are actually the oldest NCAAF teams, they played the first college football game in Piscataway, NJ

Not to start an argument but I always laugh when people play the "history and tradition" cards. All programs are Rutgers' and Princeton's b*tches when it comes to history.

They have also played Miami of Ohio 117 times. That includes the WWII 2-year break.
