I know it's been brought up many times, but let's do it again. It looks awesome in person and on TV. There is not anything negative about it. Fans, players, and recruits love it. It's not A Butch thing; fans organized it. Let's bring it back once a year. My vote goes for Sept 7th, night game on ESPN vs BYU!
Go Vols! Let's do it.
Probably will get crucified for this but for everything Butch lacked in coaching he made up for in pushing for “fan/player friendly” experiences. Third down for what... can’t here the song now without getting a little fired up for the vols, checker Neyland was epic, uniforms (personally loved them, hate the old school black cleat bs), enjoyed the motivational tactics (although they became worn out near the end).

I wouldn't give Butch too much credit. I'm sure there were people behind the scenes who made it all happen. The grays were awesome, but we're worn too much. Once a year or every other year is fine. One year they wore them vs Vandy on senior day and another time in a bowl game. Third Down for What was sweet in the beginning, but was played too many times for too long.

I agree with you. They shouldnt be worn often, but that year for the bowl game i think they wore them to honor the Gatlinburg fire. Correct me if im wrong though.

It may be a great way to open the season and certainly grabs the attention of both TV broadcasters and recruits. On TV, I've seen it shown and mentioned even on out of state stations. It looks great, combined with Neyland noise, fantastic!
