Look at the sea of orange outside Neyland stadium. This is what game day in Knoxville looks like.
That orange you see isn’t just any orange, it is #f77f00 in the hexadecimal color system, but let’s just stick with Tennessee or Vol Orange.
Whether you love it or hate it, every SEC fan has an opinion on Tennessee’s trademark color.
Opponents say it is way too bright or just plain awful looking. Vol fans disagree and will cover themselves from head to toe.
Haven’t made up your mind ? Take a look at these pictures from the Alabama at Tennessee game last season.
Even Knoxville’s fall colors show their allegiance to the Vols.
Even the cups and cake are orange!
You surely must now have an opinion of this shade of orange. I am sure some of you are thinking, “Where can I find those orange cups for my tailgate” while others might feel nauseated and are looking for a bathroom.
Love it or Loathe it, one thing that you can always count on is wherever you find Tennessee Vol fans, they bring their signature orange with them.
So to you Florida fans, get ready for plenty of Tennessee Orange this weekend. I know the Tennessee faithful will bring plenty of their orange when they make the trip to the Swamp.
