    Why would that bother you? He's not slamming UT. He's saying that their goal is the National Championship. If they had lost that game, their season would have been over, pretty much.

    Talk about doing a complete 180...I think Crompton is slowly turning into an NFL player. I don't think he'll be drafted, but he'll be picked up and will compete for a roster spot.

    Hate to disagree, but I don't see Crompton even being a third stringer in the NFL.

    As opposed to these?

    Can't get much worse.

    And the black even outlining the numbers looks bad on the current jerseys. Doesn't fit in at all, so more black would just look worse. Too Halloweenish.

    Those aren't too bad, mainly because that's what we're used to seeing. I prefer the all white look to the orange pants though. They're much better than the checkboard striped pants you posted earlier, you weren't serious were you?

    Yep. The current unis look painfully outdated. When my wife that doesn't even watch football walks through the room and says 'yuck' (saturday) because of a team's uniform- something she couldn't care less about- something needs changed.

    The problem though, is that UT really has nothing to build on. They have 2 colors. White and Orange. No real identity other than some random hound dog and checkerboard endzones.

    Sooo... trying to give them a bit of personality and a modern look opposed to the 1976 thing they've got right now.

    Maybe that's not the answer- but something definitely needs to be done.

    When I take to redesigning teams that I don't even like... it's a bad thing.

    I didn't say he would make a team but I am willing to bet he'll get a shot. He's big, has a strong arm, and is running an NFL offense right now. Someone is going to bring him in to see what he can do. Write it down.

    He's better than Jevan Snead right now and people still think Snead's a mid-rounder....

    I don't get the whole 'Tennessee has no personality' thing. They have just as much identity and personality as any other school. Not every school is going to do the same garbage that Oregon does.

    I mean, what "personality" does Michigan have? Do they even have a mascot? They have the 'big house' and that's about it. And their uniforms are just as bland and outdated as UT's are. Is the orange really any worse than the highlighter yellow?

    lmao @ you calling the known best uniforms in college football bland and outdated... uhhhmmmm.

    Michigan doesn't have to change theirs because they have an identity. The wings. They're voted best uniform EVERY year. For like the last 100. When has UT ever even been in the discussion?
    They don't have a silly mascot, no. But no one needs one. UTs mascot is worthless and irrelevant to the team or team name anyway. It's just some stupid dog that sits on the sidelines. Why?

    UT should probably stay with a classic look as they have. But maybe solid pants or something. Those look fine. These new dark orange pants with light orange everything else look silly.
    Maybe 1 solid stripe on the pants to match the helmet?

    Oh HELLLLL NO. Crompton has had like two decent games, and won 1 of them (georgia). Other than that, he's been absolute trash. I don't even care about Snead, but no way in hell Crompton gets drafted above 5th round.
