Tennessee planning to ‘Checker Thompson-Boling’ for Florida game

If you’re planning to come to Tennessee’s basketball game against Florida on Saturday, February 9th, you have a little work to do ahead of time.

UT is attempting to ‘checker’ Thompson-Boling Arena by having Vol fans wear orange and white clothing in specified sections of the arena. It’s something the program did last year when North Carolina came to play in Knoxville and it’s been carried out on multiple occasions with football crowds in Neyland Stadium.

If you’ll be in attendance at the game, you can figure out what color you should wear at CheckerTBA.com.

And you can see what last year’s ‘checkering’ of Thompson-Boling looked like in the photo below…
