You’re looking at the back of Kentucky’s special edition Nike Hyper Elite jerseys they’re sporting against the Vols today. Each school had to feature their midcourt logo on the front, hence the interlocking “UK” Originally, Nike planned for UK’s uniforms to show “WILDCATS” on the back, but Mitch Barnhart and Senior Associate AD Jason Schlafer decided “KENTUCKY” would be more appropriate.
Most appropriate? That in the first game A.N. with the postseason on the line, every uniform will have “KENTUCKY” on the back instead of individual players’ names.
