Is The Black Jersey In The Future?

black-jersey

Ahh, the black jerseys.  They’re on sale to those of you that are interested in going against the grain or have a tailgate-themed funeral this weekend.  But will Kentucky wear them at any point this season?  We don’t know yet.  We’re too busy trying to convince Cal to cough up the cash for thirteen pairs of Marty McFlys.

    Is it just me, or do all the jerseys they sell fans look like shit compared to the ones the players wear? Ours dont even have the “whiskers” on the front like the players’

    Saw them at AllSports today at the Fayette Mall if you want one. Looks even more horrible in person though!

    “I don’t care what color they are honestly,We’re here. This jersey is our jersey. Everybody outside, you’re not in here so I don’t want to wear it. So whatever.”

    6) If they do, the should change the front to “The Ton”. You know, just to mock them a little more.

    If you want any and all UK gear, AllSports has it all. Picked up a Nike White auto basketball for my wife when she hits The UK Women’s Clinic with Coach Cal coming up.

    Too many whiners would complain about the black uniforms so UK doesn’t even try. Some here are already crying about it. A black alternate would be awesome. Black is used by a lot of teams even though black is not their color. Oregon and Duke use it just to name a couple.

    Black Jerseys are for schools like VT and Miami…..not UK. We are BLUE and WHITE. This goes for football and basketball. Why add a new color to the ones weve had for 60+ years.

    I sure hope black jerseys are not in the future. Black Jerseys are for schools like VT and Miami…..not UK. We are BLUE and WHITE. This goes for football and basketball. Why add a new color to the ones we already have.

    Blah. Prefer the blue or white. I do like the incorporation of the jockey silks… I also realize that players want black jerseys, but how many of them are from here and really understand the importance of the blue and white?

    16&18- They aren’t adding black as a school color. Black can be used in any uniform without adding it as a school color. Do you not remember when the basketball team wore the black uni’s a few years ago?

    You guys are idiots! Yeah, we don’t ever want to get rid of our blue and white. But that means we can’t wear black? You mean to tell me you have never purchased a black Kentucky shirt? The “UK2K” shirt for example? Smdreads at all of you!

    I would be okay with a little black in them, but that jersey pictured above is HIDEOUS. The blue sleeves look stupid. Wow, I hope they don’t wear those during the year.

    Take the blue off the sleeves and make it all black it would be OK. The way it is, meh, not so much

    These have to be real. The way these things are licensed means they have to be. They have the complete design of the normal uniforms. It has been said that Joker will only let the team wear the black uniforms (which DO exist) if they start 4-0 (which would have to include beating Florida in our 4th game).

    The black uniforms have always existed with the new ones we got. Those are them. OBVIOUSLY, they look terrible there. Those aren’t authentic. Even the normal new blue/white ones that are for sale like that black on above look like crap, but the real ones the team wears look AWESOME (they looked awesome vs wku). Those black uniforms, the real ones, will look freakin’ amazing. Good to finally see them.

    I’ve always wanted them to bring out black jerseys from time to time. As a player it really is a lot of fun to wear something different. I remember when I played basketball in high school we had a alternate black jersey(our colors were blue and white) and we wore them once during the year and during tournaments. It’s just a nice feeling and gets you pumped!

    um 34 im pretty sure they have worn these black unis before, unless im getting that confused with the ones the bball team wore 3 years ago.

    It would look a lot better if the sleeves were blue and white instead of blue and black.

    Love them this is not the old times if we are going to lure in some talent we need to change it up a little can’t wait for the new Lebron jerseys too get with the times people I love my cats too!

    Obviously the jersey they sell to the public is a generic version. They don’t have names, and rarely feel anything like the real ones.
    My opinion, (from a life-long fan,) is that they should wear the black “alternative” jerseys on very special occasions. Notre Dame wears alternate green jerseys and their football tradition can rival any in the nation. We have new blue and white ones, and those two colors will never change. But, if Joker gives the players a major goal, (like going 4-0,) then I say let the players wear what they dig. They are the ones wearing them afterall. Plus, I doubt Coach Phillips is gonna try and recruit any of us old fools by selling the image of the program. And those black jerseys are good for the image of the program, especially to recruits.

    Wear them to beat Tn. Black & Blue!

    People who don’t like them just they are black are stupid! This is 1950 times change and if the players like them then we should wear them.

    It’s not whether a 50 year old reading KSR likes them. It’s whether the 17 year old recruit likes them. Heck Archie Goodwin dropped Baylor because of uniforms.

    It doesn’t matter if a 50 year old from Cynthiana likes them. What does matter is if the all-state running back from Georgia likes them.

    BTW if it was up to me UK would have blue, white, gray, and black helmets, jerseys, and pants. And we’d wear black shoes.

    Definitely should wear these!! Would really look good against Louisville!!!!

    I think we should wear these with black pants and the blue helmets against Florida or Tennessee.

    Come out to AC/DCs “Hells Bells” on the brand-spankin’-new sound system with an accompanying video. I get goosebumps thinking about it, especially if it were a night game.

    Please let the pants be blue and black checkered too…

    I like it. A change of pace is always a little exciting. Gets the players up for a big game and I cant wait to see them wear them.

    Fuuuuggggleeeeee. Even Western got rid of their black-for-black-sake jerseys. They’re over. And earlier writer was right–why do the replica
    jerseys look like crap compared to the real ones? Especially the sleeves–they’re longer than golf shirts.

    Look, they’re over. Not to mention just plain fugly. Even Western got rid of theirs this year. If you want a special design to for the Tennessee annual loss, use a blue & white checked helmet and/or jersey–not just the sleeves. Out “checkerboard” ’em. And I agree with the earlier writer–these replica jerseys always look like crap and nothing near the real ones. Especially the sleeves–they’re longer than golf shirts!
