The Tennessee Vols are the kids with the Pumped Up Kicks

All the other kids in the SEC better run, better run, faster than the Vols'. That's because Tennessee players are sporting some new orange Addias sneakers. This pair of "Pumped Up Kicks" was worn by Scotty Hopsonon Monday at practice, according to Wes Rucker. They reportedly look better if they're worn with black socks, but who knows how much Bruce Pearl wants to deviate from the traditional frosted orange and white Tennessee colors. But getting some new shoes could be the thing to put some steam in a season where the team has floundered with on and off-the-court issues.

Speaking of Vols' hoops and shoes, last Saturday's night's game against Mississippi State provided fans with the chance to donate to Soles4Souls, described as "a Nashville-based nonprofit that distributes donated shoes to needy people worldwide." It's nice to see Tennessee "Foster the People" for a good cause. Go click on the link and check it out.
