    "While the 'Power T' is the official mark of the University of Tennessee, we are committed to restoring the visibility of the Lady Vol brand and showing it the reverence it deserves so our Tennessee family can move forward, more united, to blaze new trails of excellence," Currie said. "We understand that people are very passionate about the Lady Vol brand, and the Chancellor and I have been diligent about seeking perspective from various constituencies since each of us were appointed.

    "We will not allow for the Lady Vol brand to disappear from our athletics department or university."

    Measures to restore the prominence of Tennessee's Lady Vol presence include:

    Reaffirming a commitment to restore visibility of the Lady Vols name, logo and brand.

    Continuing to honor and celebrate UT's legacy of incredible national leadership and accomplishments in women's athletics.

    Affirming the freedom for our student-athletes to refer to themselves, and their teams, as "Lady Vols" while competing under the official mark of the university – the "Power T."

    Restoring Lady Vol branding and signage to athletic facilities such as Sherri Parker Lee Stadium and Regal Stadium.

    Providing apparel options that include Lady Vols branding and color scheme.

    Stupidest and most sexist shit, ever.

    Make amends in the next football coaching hire, and I still won't give a shit.

    Divisive. We're vols. No gentlemen and lady vols.

    What about other gender vols? Isn't there like 10 genders now?

    Why the **** do we have butch Jones if the only reason hart was here was to unify the ad's and the only reason ****ing jones was hired was because hart?

    I tell you, there is no god and butch Jones is his prophet.

    I don't care that much, but this caused an awful lot of damn commotion and we were past it. Now, we may have to go through it all again some day. Seems like a cheap way for Currie to score some points. Plus, this was something that took away from valuable Butch firing time.

    All I care about is football. Fire Jones and make a good hire and all will be well.

    Don't understand why "Lady Vols" was ever created in the first place. But then didn't understand the decision to kill the brand after all the time and money spent getting it so well-established.

    I can't really say I give a damn one way or the other...just another series of questionable decision-making by the University.

    It seems like with the relatively quick backtrack, the big aim was getting rid of Cronin and the shadow AD. Dropping Lady Vols was floated along with it to steal the focus and give a cheap pop down the road.

    I guess separate but equal is back en vogue.

    I care less than any of you others that say you don't care because I waited a week to click on the thread.

    Now it’s time for Currie to restore our buttholes from the last decade.

    It’s gonna take a little more than the usual caulk and putty.

    I'd be happy if he just closed the new one we've been torn.
