It wouldn’t be the off-season if we didn’t talk about Tennessee’s uniforms.

There are two distinct camps when it comes to thoughts on the Vols uniforms.

There are the traditionalists, who believe the Vols uniforms are perfect in their current state. Then there are those who want to see Tennessee’s uniforms updated — badly.

Senior defensive lineman Maurice Couch is clearly in the latter group.

He’s far from alone.

At any given time, on the multitudes of Vols message boards, a debate is raging in regards to Adidas vs. Nike, and how the Vols uniforms look outdated.

Some folks even argue that the Vol’s current uniforms have a negative effect on recruiting.

Hopefully uniforms will never be a factor in a recruits final decision, although I can’t say it would totally shock me, but I digress

Unfortunately for Tennessee fans that want a major change, it’s probably not going to happen anytime soon.

Adidas holds the contract for Tennessee uniforms through at least 2015. So it’s doubtful that Vol fans will be seeing any of these prototypes that have been floated around Twitter, anytime soon.

What do you think? Should the Vols update their uniforms, or leave them as they are? Comment below and let us know what Vol Nation thinks!

    I’d like to see the checkerboard incorporated somehow but there is something to be said for the good ole ORANGE and WHITE. Sorry no Halloween Unis for me.

    I would love to see some kind of update and change. Also I did like the Black Jerseys. I doesn’t hurt to change it up a few games. But never go away from the Orange and White for good. We are Tennessee, We are Orange and White.

    If a player/recruit says that the uniforms need “swag,” they should be ignored because they clearly don’t know what they’re talking about. This trend of letting short-sighted teenagers with short attention spans choose the aesthetic direction of college football needs to stop.
