why are u on a UK website then. Tennesee and the infamous black unis "yeah, they dont need a gimmick, HA HA
Not sure if “checkerboardy” is a word or not, but it’s the only thing that comes to mind when looking at the new Nike uniforms Kentucky unveiled this afternoon.
Well, okay, Purina-esque works, too.
Overall, the unis aren’t a huge departure from previous years — all blue at home, all white on the road. Only now UK has the option of wearing a white helmet instead of the usual blue.
The biggest change — as you can see more clearly if you enlarge the photo at left by clicking this story’s headline — is on the sleeves. Both the blue and white jerseys feature a blue/navy checkerboard pattern.
Personally, I’ve never been the biggest fan of Nike’s often “out there” designs, but this one isn’t as radical a redesign as I had feared.
(And, yes, we are angling for Nike to once again fly us to New York to cover the unveiling of their new Pro Combat uniform collection. The Trump Soho was very nice.)
