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

Former players tweet about UK’s new uniforms

It turns out the fans aren’t the only people disappointed in Kentucky basketball’s new look.  A couple of former players saw the new uniforms on Twitter and voiced their opinions online:

Devin Booker gave them a thumbs down:

Trey Lyles seconded Booker’s tweet and gave them the trash emoji:

Your move, Nike.

    I don’t hate the new unis, but I certainly don’t like them either. But, I’d say it is safe to assume those won’t be worn all season. Nike will drop some special edition unis, like they do every year, and they’ll start wearing them the rest of the season.

    Personally, I don’t see why they have to redesign them every season.

      My guess is it’s business. Nike assumes that if they keep putting out new uniforms, people will keep buying the uniforms in stores.

      Ditch the checkerboard and bring back the denim.

    Yes! Can we PLEASE lose the lame checkerboard crap!!! Everyone hates it.
    It’s awful on the football uni’s too. Let Tennessee have it.

    We’ll never win at football in those and basketball – those are national championship proof!!
    Change them!!!

      The 2012 unis had checkerboard on the wasteband…But yeah, definitely didn’t have this much.

      That being said, Kentucky actually had the checkerboard endzone before Tennessee did. Oscar tweeted about it last year.

    Why do you have to mess with a good thing? Kentucky should be solid blue or solid white. You don’t see Alabama messing up their uniforms. Stick with tradition. We don’t need to turn into Louisville with flamboyant, yearly uniform updates.

    Nike may have created them but the AD is the one who signed off on them. He is also the “brains” behind the belief that the UK logo needed an update with a new K, even though that style of K has been used by the university since 1865😉

    These uniforms are awful. Why on earth does UK get the bottom of the barrel designs, logos, and uniforms? Trey is spot on, uniforms are trash. Another great decision by Barnhart, you fing idiot. I hope these are only temporary.
