The University of Tennessee is dropping the archaic Adidas for its cool big brother Nike, and the Vols will start donning the Nike uniforms in the 2015 season.
Tennessee is a program with a storied history and tradition, and it was quite a culture shock to see Adidas roll out the Smokey-grey uniforms last season. Can you imagine the reaction when Tennessee rolls out looking like an orange Oregon?
