About Tennessee Volunteers Autographed Mini Helmets
A change has always been good. When it came to Tennessee Volunteers of the University of Tennessee, it meant that there would be significant improvements which would prove to be long lasting and definitely a good thing. Year 1964, was the time when Doug Dickey came in to the folds of Tennessee Volunteers. He wanted some major changes to be done and was sure it would mean great things for the men’s football team. The first item on his agenda was that he wanted to change the number that was printed on the side of the helmet in to a prominent ‘T’ of the team. This change was welcomed and stands even today. Some of the team’s memorabilia includes this item Troy Fleming Tennessee Vols Chrome Mini Helmet.
The other things that he had a hand in were the way the offense side worked on the fields. He wanted to scrap the single wing formation that the side used and wanted it replaced with the T formation offense. He felt this change would be good and it would provide with more results. The last was a change in the introduction of the team onto the fields during the pregame ritual. These changes stuck even when he left and by 2008 and many coaches later Lane Kiffin of the Oakland Raiders came in. Another change followed and finally the current head coach was appointed Derek Dooley. Before this post he had also coached the Miami Dolphins.
