Kentucky Fans Check No to Checkerboard Uniforms

Recommended Posts

I'm not surprised. I don't mind the checkerboard pattern, but I can see why fans wouldn't like it considering how Tennessee is one of their major conference rivals. I can't speak for their other teams, but I would't mind them wearing something similar to the Rupp-era uniforms.

Yea, hopefully Kentucky and Nike listen to this feedback and stop putting checkerboards where they shouldn't be. We (Tennessee) should be the only ones sporting them, especially in the SEC.

This was a prime example of nike forcing their design on an athletic program that had absolutely no need for brand enhancement. In addition to the obvious conflict with Tennessee tying your school's identity to a damn racehorse with zero ties to the university. Imagine if Indiana University made Al Unser's firesuit design focal point of their athletics uniforms.

I got one guy that writes me an email — when we go on the road, we wear white uniforms, which is by rule, we have to wear the white uniform. He says, ‘You’ve worn white. You’re already surrendering before you’ve ever taken the field.’ I said, ‘That’s great, buddy. I really appreciate you understanding the rules of college football.’ That’s the mindset of what I deal with.

That's the kind of guy who calls into PAAAWWWLLL's show. I guarantee it.
