The much-anticipated day has finally arrived for the University of Tennessee and their fans as the school's contract with Nike officially started today. The change over received so much attention that Tennessee broadcast the event live on their website.
The broadcast can be watched here in case you have a job and couldn't afford to miss such a monumental event:

Fan reaction was met with universal praise for the new threads. In fact, Nike representatives stated in the release event that Tennessee is now their number four retailer - considering the actual switch did not occur until July 1, that's quite an amazing stat.
