The Tennessee Volunteers blew things up on Thursday with the official unveiling of a new, smokey-gray set of alternate football uniforms. We here at UniBlog think they’re pretty slick, but how did the sometimes fickle, generally harsh Twitterverse react?

First of all, you know you’ve done at least a decent job when you’ve caught Erin Andrews’ attention.

Now that we’ve got that out the way (who doesn’t mind a quick Erin Andrews reference?) what do the average fans think of the new threads?

    All I want to know is …can they win? I want my Pride back…I want to go to games and be hoarse afterwards from singing Rocky Top all night long like we used to. I want to stay to the very last second and watch fireworks again! I want to leave the game chanting…”it’s great to be a Tennessee VOL!” along with 100,000 fans! I want to get up on Saturday and be excited about driving 5.5 hours to the game and desire to get there EARLY!!!! And I want to listen to positive reports on the after game radio shows. I want to remember how it felt to be AWESOME and even if we get beat by Georgia, Alabama or Florida I want them to leave KNOWING they have just played the BEST team they will play all season long! I want that excitement back! My husband and I used to live all year long until football season…I want that anticipation again.
