(WBIR-Knoxville) What a difference a year can make. The Vols are heading into a new season with new coaches, new players and a new look.
Sophomore Abby Underwood thinks it's a step in the right direction. "I think the new changes, the new uniforms and everything, a lot of it is has to do with hyping for recruiting, but it also hypes the students and the fans."
In a move to help usher in the new era, the Vols have gone through a bit of a re-branding process.
Jim McMichael Signs & Truck Painting took on the task of upgrading the team's gameday bus. "UT came to us with the graphics they wanted to put on their new team bus. We took that and superimposed it on the bus and proceeded to print and install it."
Over the years, you may be used to seeing the Vols hop off of a blue and white Premier bus for the Vol Walk, but just like everything else in 2013, the bus is getting a new look.
"Tennessee Football" runs along one side while the other has the phrase "I Will Give My All". Throw in our 6 national championships and 13 SEC titles and you have a pretty intimidating mode of transportation.
The hype seems to be working. Now it's time to follow it up with a win on Saturday.
