The Tennessee tradition that won’t go unnoticed, especially on game day, is our bright color orange. It is everywhere from the uniforms, the fans and all over campus.
This color scheme originated back in 1891, when Charles Moore, a member of the original football team, came up with it because of the orange and white daisies that lined “the Hill,” the most notable spot on campus.
Orange is associated with meanings of joy, sunshine, enthusiasm, creativity, success, encouragement, change, determination, health, stimulation, happiness, fun, enjoyment, balance, freedom, expression.
Everyone in Maryville is excited about football days! Embrace your gameday spirit with some of our charming Tennessee treasures. We have the perfect gift for your biggest Volunteer Fan!
