Coach Cal shows off UK’s new uniforms for the Bahamas

Kentucky will take three new uniforms to the Bahamas next week, including an all-black look for the fans who have been begging for it. Coach Cal showed off the new threads on Twitter today in a preview video for the four-game trip.

You may notice there is no checkerboard on the new, temporary look:

Cal also said he’s been toying around with several combinations within his roster as the team gets ready for its first competition. He spoke highly of the four opposing teams, saying “they should beat us” and his hope is to go 1-3 in the four games.

See the whole video:

      I really like the black alternate too. Glad to see some love from the comments on those. Figured it would be crazy on here from all the traditionalists. I love our rich tradition and all too; I just also LOVE seeing us try out new unis!

      SuperTroy, check out Uni Watch (Uni-watch.com). You’ll be glad (this is not a paid promotion/I don’t work there.)

    So…coach cal and the players have no say in the uniforms to be worn for the season?

    Needs more checkerboard!!!! Jk, I like the black.

    Those are nice; our best of the Cal era are either the 2009-10 John Wall unis, or the 2015 NCAA Tourney unis

    There ARE checkerboards. They are on the sides of the shorts. Four per side.

    Coach Cal. Please, no more checkers boards! Even the Vols are getting rid of them. I love all of these, but the BLACK is awesome! I’m 74 years old for goodness sake and living in the North, so I can’t take much more. I’ve LOVED my Cats since 1950!!

    Agree with most of the posts. If you said black unis my initial thought would be probably not, but I really like them. I bet these would sell well if put on the market.

    Am I the only one who isn’t a big fan of the black unis? They just remind me too much of Duke!

    DUUUUUUUUKE uni’s! Yeah, let’s just copy Puke for Gods sake!!!!

    Why do they keep letting Mitch Barnhart design the uniforms on an etch-a-sketch?

    What has our University come too?

    I want to talk about the little smile or grin on coach Cal’s face. That just about tells me all I need to know about how good this team is or can be. Seeing that and the way he’s talking about the team gave me a great feeling inside about our chances this year. Definitely some good vibes coming from him….lol

      The guitar case in the corner is giving the rest of college basketball the finger.

    I like the black uni idea. Don’t like these designs though. Look like practice jerseys.

    Love the black uni’s! I also like the fact that there is a checkerboard “compromise” with only 4-panels alternating colors. Much more subtle of a look and less “Tennessee” slash picnic blanket.

    The black ones look too much like PUKE’s black alternates…..YUCK.
