UT is the University of Tennessee (est 1794), not the University of Texas (est 1883). UT was a school before Texas was a state...a state in whice Tennessee founded I might add. The University of Texas was refered to as 'TU' (and still is by UT and Texas A&M)until they decided how much cooler UT sounded and decided that is what they wanted their school to be called. TU has attempted to steal UT's logos (the interlocked UT symbol and the Power T),and colors (TU is burnt orange and white while UT is hunting orange and white. UT was also orange and white first), and traditions even though Tennessee was voted #1 football weekend by Sports Illistrated in 2005, and UT's sporting facilities seat more people and sell more tickets annually than any TU sport. I'm surprised they haven't changed their school fight song to Rocky Top. UT is the University of Tennessee. Get your facts right bitches. Don't believe me...go to UTsports.com
Rocky Top you'll always be,
home sweet home to me (and the REAL UT),
good ole Rocky Top,
Rocky Top, Tennessee
