A better look at the Cats’ special road uniforms for Saturday

We’ve seen sneak peeks over the last few weeks, but here are the official pictures of the special edition Nike Hyper Elite jerseys and shorts Kentucky wear on Saturday against Tennessee in Knoxville. The Cats are one of twelve teams chosen to wear commemorative uniforms on a one-time basis this season.

Some details from UK:

The Nike Hyper Elite jerseys and shorts offer lightweight performance through sustainable materials. A UK interlocking logo was inspired by Kentucky’s home court, appears on the jersey’s center chest. Nike dubs the look as a “piece of home away from home to wear with pride.” The back nameplate features iconic references to the team’s mascot and home crowd. The team is also slated to wear a Hyper Elite warm-up hoody for the first time as well.

    Maybe we could pool our money together and have Mr. Miyagi do his magic in the lockerroom… it worked for Danielson!

    I don’t really care for the uniforms, but I sure wish we could see Nerlens in one.

    The team should all rock #3 on saturday…why does it look like the jersey says Kentucky across the back, I thought it was supposed to says Wildcats?

    Do these come with an extra Nerlens Noel.

    Yeah, I gotta echo everyone else here,

    Really?

    We got busted in the face last night, hope that was built up over a 5 game winning streak now dashed against the rocks of uncertainty and saddness, our best player got stretched and bent like two evil curtain-climbers destroying a Stretch Armstrong

    …and you got us looking at clothes?

    Hmmm…

    Maybe not a good post.

    It’s official. Nerlens Noel is out for the season. Here is a picture of the injury. Obviously a torn ACL and knee popped out of socket. Horrible…

    just read on Larry Glovers twitter that Nerlens Noel has a ruptured patella tendon according to insiders with the Florida training facility. This is great news because he can be in a brace for 3-6 weeks and be back!!

      I’m not really sure what you guys want us to do. There aren’t any updates on Nerlens yet from UK (the only source you should truly trust), and when there are, we will get them to you. In the meantime, would you rather us post nothing?

    Larry Glover has no idea what he is talking about

    sounds like he may have played his last game in a uk uni

    This is exactly what you should be posting. It’s a good thing to get fans minds away from the tragedy that is NN injury, at least until you find out for sure what the diagnosis is. Please, keep other posts coming. Thanks.

    I love the gloom and doom. We are one year removed from a national title and will be loaded next year. We did not meet expectations this year and Nerlens injury added to the team’s troubles this year. Not sure why their is this hatred towards our program and players right now. We have alot going in our favor. I am suggesting a coke and a smile for some of the folks on here.

    16. Keep doing what you’re doing. I really do like that TT is the only moderator who will get her hands dirty and respond to smart ass clowns who like to talk to damn much. Hate the unis but at least they are an awesome color!

    @24, the cost of a fat bag of bluegrass! (really its the no. of counties in the state)

    I agree w/ brutaltruth-we are all sick that this has happened to Nerlens; my prayers to him & his family –but personally I don’t want to see any more pics of his injury -I saw when it happened & several more times since. I also will wait until official word comes on his diagnosis comes from UK I doubt any of the speculators know any more than I do about knee injuries.

    They should wear these the rest of the season so maybe some of the guys will play for the name on the back of the jerseys.

    Good job Mrs. TT. You do a great job keeping us informed & intertained. Great posts & pics. I like the look of the new uniforms. Still Kentucky no matter how they dress. Praying for Nerlens knee to be only minor injury. Great kid. Wish him the best. GO CATS!!!!!!

    24 – here’s your answer on the “120” inside the state: https://twitter.com/DavisToddM/status/301760109032394752

    @24–I would guess that the 120 is for the 120 counties in the state of Kentucky
