As Tennessee fans make their way down Phillip Fulmer Drive and to Neyland Stadium’s Gate 21 Saturday, they’ll be greeted by an old treat as the vintage “V O L S” signs that hung at the top of the north end zone seats until the 1999 season.
Tennessee director of athletics Danny White announced that the signs would be outside of Neyland Stadium Saturday morning.
I’m learning that there’s sentimental value in these letters! Thought y’all might enjoy a bit of nostalgia today – they’re outside Gate 21 if you want a picture. I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that y’all want us to include the Vols letters in our Neyland renovation plans…? pic.twitter.com/M6jcbWEDsa

The big news in White’s tweet is that this might not be the last Tennessee fans see of the signs. The first year athletic director hinted that the big letters may be returning to the banks of the Tennessee River in Neyland Stadium’s renovation project.
