At the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee Orange is not just a citrus fruit or a color in between yellow and red. Orange is an attitude and a feeling. The Tennessee Volunteers, an NCAA Division-I football team which plays in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division, wear a distinctive orange colored jersey and play in a distinctively orange adorned stadium. One writer even described game day at Neyland Stadium as a "sea of orange". The Tennessee Volunteers roster, coaches, staff and fans can all picture the exact shade of what Home Depot calls Tennessee Orange without even needing to open their eyes.
But the Tennessee Volunteers are more than just a noticeable color, the team has 6 National Champions Titles, 16 Conference Titles, an All-Time Record of 773-327-53 and has had over 70 Tennessee Volunteers roster members be named All-Americans and almost as many players be drafted into the NFL. The Tennessee Volunteers are noted as one of the most competitive teams in the league and it has nothing to do with the color of their jerseys. The Volunteers football program has a long tradition of winning and excellency on the field. Part of this tradition includes having some of the best players and coaches on staff.
Currently the University of Tennessee Volunteers are led by Lane Kiffin, Coach Kiffin was hired in the winter of 2008 and will start his coaching career with the Tennessee Volunteers in the 2009 season, although there is controversy surrounding Coach Lane Kiffin's departure from the NFL Oakland Raiders and his remarks made during several recruiting taboos Tennessee Volunteers fans are eager to see what this pro-football coach can add to an already strong program.
