Kiffin’s Letter to the Fans
In case any of you missed out on the letter Coach Lane Kiffin sent out to the entire Tennesee fan base today, here it is in it’s entirety:
Dear Tennessee fans,
I hope this note finds you well and excited about the future of Tennessee Football.
As we kick-off our first spring practice with the Tennessee family, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the opportunity you have given us. Tennessee has a storied tradition of great players and great teams. Our staff will do everything in our power to continue the great tradition and foundation that was built before us. We are very excited about the opportunity we have here, and we hope you are too.
I want our fans to be an active part of the program. Your energy and enthusiasm are two of the things that make Tennessee great. That being said, I hope you will join us for our first practice in pads on Friday, March 13th in Neyland Stadium at 7 p.m. This will give you a chance to come see what’s in store for Tennessee football. Due to construction, we will cap admittance at 10,000 fans. You can enter from gates 1, 2 or 3.
There are several events on campus Friday, including our SEC baseball opener at Lindsey Nelson at 7 p.m. and an event at the arena, so all parking on campus will be paid. The most convenient parking will be in the G-10 garage or 11th Street garage and come around the back of the hill.
I also want to encourage you to come out for the Orange and White Game on April 18th at 3 p.m. Because of stadium improvements currently underway, space will be limited for the Orange and White game so I encourage you to order online at utsports.com today.
I hope to see you in Neyland soon!
