HOT TAKE ALERT: The 2017 UK Football Posters are Trash

Everybody makes mistakes.  The people at UK’s graphic department are some of the best in the business, but the 2017 UK football posters are a swing and a miss.

In previous years, there have been bad mottos for the football team (“Rise” is the worst of the worst), but “Go To Work” is a perfect reflection of this football and their head coach.  The serious pictures capture the players’ serious mindset, but they broke a timeless rule: Keep It Simple Stupid.

I don’t need to see the scribbled words surrounding the players.  It’s generic coach-speak that adds clutter.  Unless this is some popular trend I’m too old to understand, the scribbles draw all of the attention away from a perfectly fine poster.

Surely I’m not the only one who is not a fan of the scribbles.

      Nick does a fine job covering football. How an anyone honestly say they are good. It looks like a 12 year old designed them

    They are appealing to a younger generation with the style.

    How about “play an entire season as a team that we all can be honestly proud of.”

    No spin, no bs, no selling fools gold to the fan base… beat more than 1 team with a winning record.

    Who gives a damn about a poster! Play the game and be honest about it.

    I like the “Lets go to Work” but everything else is just too busy and looks ridiculous. But let’s be honest, whatever UK puts out I will be one of those people that only go to Kroger that day just to get a poster. Lol! 70 days could not get here soon enough

    I said the same thing Nick but all the true blues said they were great. They are terrible and ugly. Good call Nick. The minions dont like it when anyone speaks the truth. Zero negativity.

      If Slater thinks they’re garbage, that means they’re awesome. Because he’s a moron. I thought they were ok but now that he’s trashing them, they look even better

    This “take” is as hot as my dead grandma’s vagina. You suck Nick. Learn to control the levels on your podcast. Freddy and Drew carry the football podcast. Ryan Lemond has a better sense of humor than you. Love you 🙂

    I loved them, they kinda got me fired up. Read the message, how can you not like them? But you know what… even if I disliked them, I wouldnt be dissing the graphics department. Jerk move.

    i was at the season ticket holder open house and didn’t hear a single person complain about the posters, in fact everyone i heard thought they were pretty awesome.
