College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

Recommended Posts

New template is an upgrade. 

Sleeves look like an ugly table cloth. 

Pants are nice looking, love the secondary logo place. 

Helmets are fine. Wish there was no black alt.

Just be thankful there's no signs of mix-n-match uniforms like they've been using the last couple of years.

What makes you think they won't? They've mixed everything in recent years. I fully expect them to continue doing so.

yep because i doubt they will go monochrome the entire year, this is a typical unveiling showing off every piece of the uniform in as little combinations as possible, but during the season will wear a different combo every week

So, they go all out checkerboard on the jersey, but can't manage to do the same on the pants?

Thank you Kentucky! You just TURNED US INTO THE THUNDERKITTIES!

WTF! WHERE ARE THE CHROME DOMES!

Kentucky football is such a mess, aesthetically and athletically.  It's such a shame, as that particular blue they use (especially on their metallic-finish helmet) is gorgeous.  All they need is that amazing blue, with white, and some friggin' restraint, and they could have a perfect uniform.  Take the Oklahoma Sooners' uniform, switch out the dark red for the UK blue, and you'd be three-quarters there. But instead they insist on adding gray, adding black, (any CFB team that goes with both BFBS and GFGS is basically advertising their third tier status), the played out high school style monochrome, and now using a design motif that pretty much everybody associates with their rival... what can you say?

 

Baffling.

I think Kentucky's blue chrome lid was pretty nice - better if the UK decal wasn't chrome. Much better than the white/silver chrome based lid.

 

I felt like the previous set was close to being pretty damn good. Much better than this set. I'm kinda glad I was in class during the reveal so I didn't have to listen to the Nike speak on all this crap.

I know there's only so many ways to render a cat, but the new alternate UK logo looks like a cross breed of UNI and Montana State.

Ugh, I really don't understand why Kentucky insists on using the checkerboard pattern when it's been a major part of Tennessee's identity for years.

That was Nike's idea. It's supposed to be a homage to Secretariat.

This sucks, I really wanted to see Kentucky do something more original than let it all hang loose.

Kentucky's new logo looks awful (looks more like a cat shaped cloud than anything else) and the update to their uniforms is a big meh.

Sorry for the late response. It appears it was just the practice jersey. My brother was watching Heard's periscope and said he showed new black jerseys. After watching myself, it did appear that it was the practice jersey however he did show off a lot of their new cleats and other equipment. I wouldn't be surprised if they had more concepts in the room but couldn't show them.

 

The periscope broadcast has since been deleted :(

A lot of people are seeing the same thing.

Does that make it a fair critique? I don't know. While the notion is sophomoric in nature, my post wasn't intended to be.

Regardless of how good or bad I think the logo is, I wouldn't wear that shirt. If I owned the shirt and didn't see the double entendre, it would be pointed out to me by someone if I wore it around long enough. I wouldn't want to wear it again and I certainly wouldn't want to go buy any more apparel with that logo on there. It'd be awkward and embarrassing. 

For that reason, I don't think the logo will ever reach its full potential from a merchandising and revenue-generating perspective. I won't be surprised when this logo is phased out or altered in some way. I thought that was worth discussing. 

FWIW, here's a petition against their new logos, including UK fans' commentary. https://www.change.org/p/big-blue-nation-kentucky-university-of-kentucky-urge-the-university-of-kentucky-to-discard-it-s-new-graphic-identity-logo/c
