(WBIR - UT Campus) When the Vols' season begins in just a few weeks, Butch Jones' team won't be the only ones adjusting to change.
The historic Pride of the Southland Band will see plenty of it too. More than 100 hundred Freshmen joined the band this year.
The musical squad has also taken to practicing in a new $40 million facility named, The Natalie Haslam Music Center.
The changes don't stop there either. Years of wear and tear finally got to the band's old hats, so they bought new ones, with similar designs.

Now, the UT Alumni Association is taking up a campaign to raise $40,000 to cover the expense. It's called "Hundred for a Hat."
"For a $100 donation, they [donors] get to use one of the old hats that had been worn in Neyland Stadium," said UT Director of Bands Dr. Gary Sousa.
The band performs in two weeks at Bristol Motor Speedway, just before the Vols' homeopener August 31.
