University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

New Uniforms Coming?

According to a website called Uni-Watch, Kentucky could be getting new uniforms tomorrow from the fine people at Nike. And that’s as much as we know. On the Uni-Watch News Ticker today, the site gave us a one sentence report on a possible new line of jerseys in college basketball:

“Nike will unveil new men’s and women’s basketball uniforms – all of them sweatbacks, I think – for Arizona, Baylor, Connecticut, Duke, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Syracuse tomorrow morning.”

So you know, a “sweatback” is the jersey UK is wearing now with the subliminal watermark on the back. I don’t know if that will change from the one Kentucky wears now or if Nike will debut a new look for the Cats. I don’t even know if they’ll be getting new jerseys at all. Hell, I thought Uni-Watch was a website tracking Anthony Davis’s stats this season.

A new look is always fun, though.

Stay tuned.

    Mr Obvious says who cares if you’re first and who cares about new uniforms as long as they’re not denim blue.

    Perhaps they’re just unveiling the gray alternate that they’ve been selling.

    “Sweatback” is a term created by the guy that runs Uni Watch, not Nike.

    This won’t be the gray jerseys. Tomorrow Nike is unveiling a new line of uniforms that will be worn by several teams, including Kentucky. The gray jerseys were unveiled last summer. Kentucky wouldn’t be included in this if that were all it was.

    The UGA game tonight has nothing to do with this. Because this involves several teams there really isn’t a point to trying to get them out for any particular game. Besides, a national TV game is not exactly rare for UK.

    I’m sure the UK apparel stores are praying that they finally play in the alternate Gray’s that they were told would be used from over a year ago! Lots and lots of Silver/Gray warm ups, jerseys and shorts that are just hanging around all over Lexington.

    Baylor is an Adidas school… not Nike. D’oh!



  27. Crime Dog

    21 – Baylor has several teams wearing Nike (including their football and women’s basketball teams). It wouldn’t surprise anybody if they switched the men’s basketball team to Nike as well. Of course, the inclusion of Baylor in the list could just be a mistake. But if the Uni Watch guy says new uniforms are coming for several teams, then it is happening.

    Maybe the new jerseys will match the Oregon football helmets used in the Rose Bowl, the reflection of the arena lights will then blind the opposition,guaranteeing our 8th championship!

    Maybe they are getting new uniforms as a reward for beating Alabama. When teams like Alabama play our guys so close I hate to think what would happen if we didn’t have all the talent that comes with a number one recruiting class.

    4.) Typical old fan…”I hope their not black” look UK will never have a black jersey that they use commonly. If a black jersey is so horrible that you can’t stand to watch them play in it 1 out of 35 games a yr then idk what to tell u. Stop complaining and get over yourself. This is a players first program, not a “SteveM” first program.

    I hope ours are the LeBrons. That way ours are a little different than all the others.

    Baylor is Nike in everything but basketball, the will prob change them to Match the rest of the teams. Florida got new unis this year.

    They won’t be LeBron uniforms. UK, OSU, and Miami all wear Lebron shoes (or at least they can), but none of them wear the Lebron label on the uniforms. If Lebron uniforms were coming out, OSU and Miami would be a part of this, too. In fact, Lebron uniforms would probably get a separate event involving those three schools.

    I like Bama’s uniforms. Understated and classy. I actually liked the design of the denim unis in 96. Just don’t make em out of denim and make em the right color. Those were fresh though.

    It is probably the grey alternate.

    so if we start messing around with the colors should the fans dress in black or gray?

    Why?..Why?…Why would you put a picture of BCG on here to announce new uniforms. I had almost forgotten the Billy Clyde Experiment. Now I’m going to have to go back to therapy. Thanks!

    I liked the black unis. They weren’t worn but maybe a couple times. In fact, weren’t we 0-2 in those jerseys? THAT’s the only bad thing about them. We lost in them. Bring them back, so we can retire them with a few blowouts and go out on a winning note with them.

    Archetype of the negative kentucky fan….mr. schwump!!

    any idea at all where this team ranks in FT% right now schwump?

    #1 in conference and #87 nationally.

    Of the current top 25 teams, UK ranks #8 with Missouri (#5), Indiana (#34), Murray St.(#35), Baylor (#41), Virginia (#65), St. Mary’s (#70) and Creighton (#77) ahead of us.

    From a percentage point of view your looking at Missouri at 77.1% and UK at 71.5%. That’s less than 6 points for every 100 points of of made free throws.

    Seriously?!?!

    Thanks for reinforcing the negative Kentucky fan stereotype schwump. Please for the good of all that is Big and Blue, remove yourself from the BBN.

    Thanks.

    7:30 pm January 24, 2012 Permalink

    @30 Exactly. This is a new era. Its about the players and lets face it, teams use them as a recruiting tool. Black is an alternate color just like white. I would love to see a black jersey. I love the jerseys we have now 10 times better than the ones BCG is standing next to. Those were horrible, just like everything that happened in the BCG era
