We’ve made a lot of fun of Kentucky’s checkerboard obsession in recent years, but today I’m actually going to praise one of said checkerboard designs.
UK unveiled the cover of the 2018-19 record book this morning and it features sketches of each Kentucky player in a checkerboard motif. John Calipari looks a little odd and I could do without the fornicating birds, but otherwise, well done, UK. This is the kind of checkerboard I could sit with.
