October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and you begin to see college and professional football teams all over the country show their support by changing equipment, from gloves and shoes to referee hats and flags, to pink, the color representing the awareness movement.
Sororities are always huge supporters of breast cancer awareness as they will wear pink, give out free ribbons, and even stage movements at sporting events. the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority at Tennessee is attempting to do the latter this Saturday as the Volunteers host the Arkansas Razorbacks.
The sorority is wanting fans to wear pink to the game as they attempt to “Pink Out Neyland”, which is one of the coolest things I have seen today.

I doubt a lot of the older male fans of the Volunteers would go for it, simply because of the whole agenda of pink being a “girly color” that so many Southern men have today.
What better way to show your support for such a great movement than by having every fan in one of the largest college football stadiums in the country wear pink. That would be pretty awesome.
