May I remind you of what UK wore on its last foreign tour

I’m seeing lots of disappointment in the new uniforms Kentucky will wear next week in the Bahamas. Comments range from “hideous” to “WHY ISN’T KENTUCKY SPELLED OUT” and “those look like prison stripes.”

While I agree they aren’t the best looking threads Nike has ever done, it is a step up from the practice jerseys worn four years ago in Windsor, seen above on a young Doron Lamb.

And let us not forget Coach Cal’s short-sleeve mock turtleneck look for the 2010 exhibitions in Detroit Canada:

I expect to see more from his Tommy Bahama collection this time around.

    Cal has aged quite a bit since that last summer trip

    Old people hate change. The summer trip jerseys look cool.

      I am young. I embrace change. But I don’t like ugly, and they are ugly and uncool.

      “Cats” …You do realize that I have posted twice on this subject and never once mentioned the number of counties in Kentucky and you, on the other hand, have responded twice and in both responses have mentioned the number of counties in Kentucky…just sayin’…

    Can we all just take a moment and be thankful we’re not sponsored by Adidas???

    They’d be neon sky blue with frilly sleeves and leopard print. Just ask Louisville…..

    The unis sucked. They will die and fall to the forgotten pile. But, we should all admire the effort to market UK as current and on the cusp. And, if they won a title in these, it would be like the streaked denim of 96. Ugly, but tied to memory.



    • Our fanbase can really suck sometimes....

    I’d take those uniforms from the last trip any day of the week compared to what they are going to wear now, thank you…

    This is truly amazing. We have a certain group of fans that do nothing but bitch. It does not matter what the subject is they just bitch, bitch, bitch. Here UK is getting ready for what should be a great season in basketball with a great chance to win championship number nine in basketball, we are getting ready to start what should be a much improved football season, with remodeling the stadium and many other improvements going on with facilities. It is a very exciting time in UK sports and people want to BITCH about basketball uniforms. These are the same people that when we win a basketball game by forty, bitch about so and so only getting to play ten minutes, or we should have won by fifty. Just go away.

    Canada Jersey’s were awesome! Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder. I’m not a huge fan of the current international jersey, but I’ve seen worse. (Adidas and their army uniforms)
