Another Look At The New Platinum Warmups

My buddy at Fan Outfitters sent me these pictures today of the platinum basketball warmups that just arrived and I like them.  I like them a lot.

    Those are awesome, but the only problem I see with them is that they’ll be outdated after the 2012 National Championship…

    Personally, I think any school can use white, black, and gray along with their school colors.

    They should sell these after the 2012 NC and then I would totally buy one. I was acually thinking about getting one of those shown above, until I had the same thought as #3. Why pay all that money for something that’s going to be outdated in less than 3 months?

    UK fans are REALLY lucky on these uniforms. That UK Blue trim is the ONLY color that compliments the “platinum” base color from Nike. I mean, have you seen how disgusting the Syracuse Orange or the Light Blue Duke and N.C. colors look on these uniforms?!?! haha the JOKES on them!

    I think UK should wear these the rest of the year. No team we play can match our 7 titles these uniforms will be reminding our oppenents of this fact every second of every game played wearing them. This will really remind them how bad there schools sucks. They are supposedly better technology than UK’s current uniforms they are 5% lighter. So I say Keep them the rest of the year.

    It appears as though nike’s inspiration for these came from highway work crew gear.

    The front looks good, but the back, not so much. Sorry, Drew Franklin, for having an opinion.

    Fronts dope but the back reminds me of a cheerleaders jacket.

    Does anybody know if Fan Outfitters has them on sale yet or will they not be selling them until next week when UK first wears them? Not sure if anybody has been to Fan Outfitters yet or not to see if they are available to public yet or not. I’ll be getting one today if they are!

    #18 lol, I fully capped two words to emphasize my point and I’m yelling?…. that’s the straw you’re grabbing at?

    Let me guess, you’re an internet troll. You know, internet trolls will eventually hinder mankind’s ability to evolve mentally.

    Now go outside and play and the leave the UK basketball think tank alone.

    32 – Did you really LOL? And I think 18 was referring to your exclamation points. And what joke is on them? I’m not trying to be the grammar police here or anything, but your comments are routinely absurd.

    That back panel is pretty sweet!!

    I like the design, but the gray is still hideous!



  37. As I've Said Before
    2:49 pm January 27, 2012 Permalink

    #34 – what would the grammar police have to do with disagreeing the value of an internet troll? and yes I did lol but I did not rotflmao (is that right?)

    Either way, I think we can all agree #18 is an internet troll and lets get back on the subject. After, of course, your next failed attempt to save face.

    “?!?!? haha the JOKES on them!” <– again, what joke(s)? Is there more than one joke? 4 exclamation points – really?

    "Disagreeing the value of an internet troll" <– what are you talking about? What does this even mean?

    Please…just stop.

    This must be for the game we’re playing in space this season, right?

    Whaddayou mean we’re not playing in space? Then why the hell do we have platinum jerseys?!



  51. SheaDaddy
    3:37 pm January 27, 2012 Permalink

    Why should any school let Nike dictate what colors they are going to wear. I get the money aspect, but we are just a valuable to nike as they are to us. The platinum stuff really takes away from the UK mystique and tradition. Just saying…

    jackets are $140, JERSEYS ARE $120, shorts are $90



  56. i'm just sayin
    4:24 pm January 27, 2012 Permalink

    If the fact that the new unis are 5% lighter, why don’t they just go back to the 1986 era nut huggers?? That would shave 30% off the weight I’m sure. Those shorts are mid-shin length now.

    Sorry to me they are just ugly, wait until they where these in the game, then you will change your mind how ugly they are.

    i started coming to this site when we all watched “the door”. i think it has gotten to the point the comments are just to rip someone who doesnt like what you do, or think like you want them too. everyone is a smartass, and everyone is an expert. me, i like blue and white. the gray doesnt pop at all. its a sales gimmick. nascar changing color schemes mid season ? sales gimmick. i wont own any of the gray stuff.

    They look like something a cheer leading squad would wear. Ghey.

    Back in the Early 60s we had warmups that had the NCAA Champions 48,49,50,51,58 on them. They were quite cool at the time. However, we went 20 years before we got the next one. Hope this doesn’t cause a jinx, but breaks the current “jinx”.

    the silver on the gray on the back is kinda weak/hard 2 c, but front looks nice……

    Gray sucks though as in Jim…..

    Everyone that is complaining that our colors are blue and white does realize that with the NCAA UK lists three colors as their OFFICIAL colors. They are Blue, white and Gray and it has been this way for OVER 15 years



  65. Bigbluelover

    Why not wear them a couple times this year? Set up deal to be only college that wears rest of season at away or home games. They are the shizz.

    Recession, super-tough in-state economy, high unemployment in a welfare state… and these people will line up to fork over $400 for some GD shiny clothes they can’t even wear in the winter time.

    Dear baby Jesus, thank you oh so much for the logic, reason and common sense you blessed me with.

    FAN OUTfitters sells really low-quality clothing. Made in Pakistan garbage.. Holes in sleeves, seams/stitching loose and pulling apart, their sizes are way off (medium fits like a small, XL feels like a medium), they WILL NOT refund OR exchange garments b/c once an item walks out the door, it’s one less piece of trash in their store…you wouldnt put trash on the curb, then bring some back in. Be careful people…rip off job in motion. Go CATS!

    should we change our pratice game to the grey and white game, how about changing our cheers to grey- white-grey-white, horse crap, our colors are blue and white
