Tennessee uniforms tweaked for 2013.

What's a new college football season without a some gratuitous tweaking of uniforms? The latest team to do so is Tennessee, whom will be ushering in the era of new Vols' head football coach Butch Jones with some subtle changes to those ever-popular frosted orange and white unis. 

The scariest change to the unis? The orange numbers on the road jerseys will have an "checkerboard background."

"The Vols will wear a state of Tennessee patch above players’ names on both the home and road jerseys, Jones confirmed to the News Sentinel on Monday.

Tennessee will also add a checkerboard background to the orange numbers on road uniforms. Jones said the changes, first reported Monday by Volquest.com, would be minor and subtle and would reinforce his statewide message."
Be afraid, Vols fans. This could end up being either very interesting of very scary. Especially since this is the work of Adidas and not Nike or Under Armour.
