The Tennessee Volunteers have some of the most-iconic uniforms in all of college sports, especially with the checkerboard pattern that has long been on the helmet and pants.


Really?

it doesnt mention getting rid of the checkerboard stripes - it says Pruitt and Fulmer wanted to but Nike resisted
It states there are a couple of changes with the stripes.... Resisting means Nike is fighting it. He was implying that they were trying to make it solid.

Edit: Either way DP confirmed yesterday before that article came out.

Good, checkerboards on the unis was the stupidest thing I've ever seen, I hated it. Good riddance.
I don't mind uniform changes. But, honestly, I'm with you on this one. On the pants and helmet looked cheesy to me. Not as bad as those checkerboard sleeves from the Dooley regime tho.

Honestly, hoping for a return to traditional winner to return as well.

Will miss the checkerboard stripes. They were subtle touch and looked awesome.

Ugh, on black cleats. That's not a tradition. We wore them back in the day because color matching was hard then, everyone wore black or white for that reason. In 2018 it just looks goofy and 2nd rate, like we can't afford shoes to match the uniform. At least they aren't bringing back the black outline on the away uni.

I'm won't miss the grays. I liked them at first but they are tainted now.
