At the strike of midnight tonight, Tennessee moves from an Adidas property to Nike. The Vols have worn the three stripes since way back in the Peyton Manning days, so expect Nike to put it s own take on the daisy orange and block T.
Tennessee has announced a noon ET unveiling of its new uniforms tomorrow, but we may already have a glimpse of how they might look.
While there is no guarantee these mock-ups will see the light of day, they at least made it far enough to the let's-hire-a-model-and-take-some-photos stage. So that's something. And the modern number font, the checkerboard incorporation and usage of black certainly seems like something Nike would do.
Either way, we'll find out for sure on Wednesday.
