UK Fans of the Day Want Afternoon Notes and Podcast

Today’s UK fans of the day come from Honolulu, Hawaii. Aloha!

— Calipari met with the media today for his pre-Tennessee press conference and he kicked things off with talk about Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. He said MKG will continue to start, rather than be a spark off the bench, because the team needs its best player out on the court. Kidd-Gilchrist only scored one point against LSU, but that’s ok with Cal because that’s not how he is being judged.

— Cal is also impressed with how Marquis Teague is growing as a point guard. Instead of being a shoot-first player, Cal is glad to see Teague running the team better. He’s defending and running the team like he is expected to do. Scoring is secondary.

— He also commented on his team’s desire to score. “They’re all used to scoring 25 a game,” he said. “It’s killing them.”

— Check out Eloy modeling the new platinum uniforms:

The Cats are debuting the new Hyper Elite jerseys against Tennessee tomorrow night on ESPN. Terrence Jones said he likes the new look and Ryan Harrow told reporters he feels like he has more muscles.

— The name underneath the number is a little different, though:

— Darius Miller is nominated for the 2012 Dunk of the Year. You can vote once a day here and the winner will be announced March 26 on ESPN 2. He’s up against Tony Mitchell, Jeremy Lamb, Tim Hardaway Jr., Terrence Ross and Victor Oladipo, who dunked on Darius in his nomination.

— UK players were feeling generous this morning so they allowed the SEC to give its weekly honors to a couple of opponents this week. Vanderbilt’s Jeffery Taylor and Florida’s Bradley Beal were named SEC Player and Freshman of the Week. That was really nice of Terrence Jones and Anthony Davis to do that.

— Lots of good topics on today’s radio show, include Pitino’s outfit against Seton Hall and one caller’s concern with the thuggish culture at LSU. Enjoy after the break…

    These uniforms look like they were made from greasy rags from an auto body shop. Hideous.

    Are the second and third ladies conjoined? It looks like two brunette torsos on one ginormous black skirt. I’ll stay on the safe side and stick with the playful-looking one in the light blue.

    (she may have won anyway)

    Cats are #1 in the nation (from the 6 major conferences) in points per possession in conference play at 1.16. Very good sign.

    I like the shoes better than the grey uniforms. Platinum IS grey!

    The uniforms might have been tolerable if they had actually been platinum, but these are just dingy gray-ugly. Just another publicity stunt by Nike to try to get their name out in front of everyone else, but nothing special.

    Drew, this is a random picture of 5 girls. Why would you think they’re UK fans?

    I was indifferent to the Unis at first, and probably still am. But boy are they ugly in these pics. Let’s hope they look better in action. I’m suddenly very thankful we have no gray anywhere in our normal color scheme.

    What was up with today’s show? Matt dropped the word Bitch, got their “Chub on” and “Poops the bed”. I am thinking that the crew has rubbe off on Matt more than he on them.

    Told everyone those uniforms was ugly and wait until they put them on and then you will see how ugly they really are. I really don’t care as long as they keep kicking butt, Just wish Nike would stick with UK blue and make something really kick ass.

    WTF????

    I agree, those uniforms look nothing like the ones in the publicity pics. Not a good color of gray. if the players and recruits like them, go for it. Keep winning, dont care what they wear

    why do they always look like they are a size to small?



  51. Mildred with an i
    6:34 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    Seton Hall had on gray uniforms with blue trim against Louisville. Looked just like the new UK uniforms. So, whoop-de-doo about the platinum, it’s been done already.



  52. Tennessee Wildcat
    6:36 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    Those uniforms have got to go! They are so ugly. Our home colors are blue and white, not blue and grey. Just another example of selling out to Nike and forgetting about tradition. Who cares if the players think they’re cool. That, my friends, is not UK. Not our tradition. I hope and pray that these hideous uniforms are just for one game only. This really sucks! I’m going to be really mad if they bring us bad luck.



  53. CATSCATSCATS
    6:42 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    Garbage. But it’s one game chill out. The name under the number looks so retarded it just looks like someone screwed up while making them. I’d rather them wear their practice jerseys honestly.



  54. CATSCATSCATS
    6:43 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    Also why does “Kentucky” have to be in like 8 pt font? You can barely read it. Whatever.



  55. 52
    7:08 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    If you don’t like the uniforms, thats fine. But your reasoning is idiotic. Everyone knows our colors are blue and white. They are ALT uniforms. I don’t think Nike and UK are seriously trying to convince people that Grey is our color. STFU

    The uniforms suck



  57. Leroy Rossenbagger
    9:22 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    Why do the uniforms have to be so frickin’ tight on the torso? I don’t understand how that is remotely comfortable. What if you are really fat? How horrible that would be.



  58. Gabe Daddi
    9:29 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    Hopefully this practice and tomorrows warm-up are as much action Eloy sees in these platinum uniforms.



  59. Seth
    9:52 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    I was a fan of the uniforms until I saw them on. I think they just look goofy. But I’ll wait until I see them in action tomorrow before I pass final judgement.



  60. Michael Kidd-Langford
    10:49 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    I was indifferent to the uniforms until UConn wore them and lost at home against Notre Dame (adidas). Now I want our guys to be nowhere near this nonsense. Yes, they’re a little tight around the torso… either that or Eloy needs to shed a few pounds!



  61. TomCat9698
    11:14 pm January 30, 2012 Permalink

    2,1,4,6,3,5 I’ll wait and pass judgement on the unis after the game,but as long as the players like them now,then so do i.
