LOOK: Even McDonald’s is embracing the new Wildcat logo


It’s been a year and a half since UK unveiled its new Wildcat logo — you know, the fornicating birds one — and despite initial backlash, it’s slowly starting to grow on fans. The McDonald’s in Lexington is even using the new Wildcat logo on its cups this fall for football season:

It is interesting to me how, for the most part, the younger you are, the more you like the new logo. My nephews in particular are obsessed with it, and the players, both football and basketball, seem to prefer it over the old Cat, which just goes go to show that the older you get, the more you hate change. Or, the older you get, the more you can’t get the image of two birds doing the nasty out of your head (NSFW!):

Let’s put it to a vote:

And yes, it’s a slow news day.

    How do you know the birds aren’t married?

      “The Nasty” doesn’t imply married.

    2. runningunnin.454

      Fornicating implies not married.

    The Kentucky Love Birds. Still better than the Louisville Angry Birds.

    I was hoping this was more of an alternate logo that we wouldnt really see much…

    Since I’m old school I can’t stand the new logo. It looks like our Wildcat is having a bad acid trip.


    The Kentucky Love Birds!! WTF whoever came up with it and whoever okayed it has no eye for art or LOGOs. Weakest Wildcat logo I have ever seen!

    I don’t see the 2 birds thing. Didn’t Drew Franklin point this out first? He was probably on an acid and/or fireball trip.

    It’s not the best logo in the world but the old cat was one of the oldest looking logos in college sports. It had to go.

    Looking at the poll at 6:09 PM Tuesday the 6th of September, I would like to officially end all of the debate about this logo. In a whopping 60% to 40% landslide, the people who don’t hate it have won this discussion.

    Of course McDonalds is using this logo, it’s the officially licensed logo now.

    I didn’t even want them to get rid of the old one with the questionable tongue.

    I hate the new logo cat. Looks very much like Penn State. Nothing about that cat says Kentucky wildcat

    It’s always better than a bird….with teeth

    Bring back the penis tongue logo!
