Kentucky Breaks out the Black Uniforms

It's a nice look if you work in a circus. IMHO, Kentucky's entire new set is an unmitigated disaster, and I hope some sanity will return to Lexington by next year...

I Love them. You can't stay old school forever. If everything stayed traditional and plain, everyone would get bored and complain that something new should happen. These are creative, maybe could've been executed a bit better, but still a good design. The black uni's still could use some blue in the lettering in some fashion...still trying to figure out how they should've done that right.

include me on the disaster....

Apparently this is another part of the tribute to their former equipment manager. While I don't particularly like the execution of these jerseys, I do think the black is understandable given the conceit of memorializing "Mr. Wildcat."

Ok, I'll give them a pass, IF this is the only time they wear them, since it was for Mr. Wildcat, Bill K. But, now add that to the black K on the jersey and the "Mr. Wildcat" on the shoulder and I think you've properly honored the man. Ditch the extra jersey tributes and that black uniform after this season and go back to the traditional blue and white with silver accents.

Hopefully it'll remain a one-off, but player comments lead me to believe they'll want to wear them again. I like the new set fine, especially because they finally ditched silver, but I don't want a black alt. I don't want UK to look like Duke or Florida. As a tribute to Mr. Bill, though, I loved it, just like last year when my Reds wore the Nuxhall tribute jerseys during intros on opening day, then Aaron Harang kept it on for the entire game. Auction 'em off for charity (that's what they said during the UK broadcast yesterday), then move on with the blue and white only.

Also, I love the black and white K and the Mr. Wildcat band. They're only supposed to be here a year, then they're gone too. Got Cats!

Today the Wildcats came out unexpectedly in Black unis with blue trim & white lettering. AWESOME! These were also commemorative of former equipment manager, Bill Keightley. I hope they pull these out more throughout the year. GREAT!

What's so great about 'em? Boring, and about 5-6 years past the "black-uni" zeitgeist.

Really, really stupid, esp. when you're known as "Big BLUE" and you're in BLUEgrass country. Jeez.

HOWEVER, as a one-time tribute to their equipment manager? Acceptable.

I like the uniforms. Actually, I have been wondering when UK would pull out the black theme. Heck, we are 1-0 in them, so I think we should wear them until we lose.

As a life-long UK fan, I think this is a fitting tribute to Mr. Bill and his legacy at UK. I'm not sure if he'd be a fan of the extra-long "shorts", but I'm sure he'd appreciate the thought. I have to admit, I shed a tear when everyone took off their shooting shirts and revealed that each jersey had "KEIGHTLEY" on the back.
