Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Nailed it.

@SBNationCFB

Someone at the SB Nation offices might’ve uncovered the inspiration behind Kentucky football’s new secondary logo.

You’re busted, Nike. Caught red handed. Your design team is a fraud. Kentucky paid you thousands and thousands of dollars to add eyeballs to a staple remover.

    Maybe we should change the name to the Kentucky Wild Staple Removers. Have you seen the damage one of those things can do to your thumb?

    I liked the logo for about 5 minutes until I saw this. Now I have to make up snappy comebacks to counter the wild staple remover jokes. I got nothing outside of stripper comments.

    I don’t like the logo. It’s a blatant copy of the K State logo.

      K state’s logo is a different color, faces the opposite direction, depicts a different kind of cat (a panther from the look of it), and has virtually no lines in common with our logo.

      It does look a lot like Oregon State, come to think of it.

    I’m told Randall Cobb was on Rachel Ray cooking trout today.

      That must’ve been very uncomfortable for Rachel.

    That to me is a play off of the Kstate ‘Power cat’ logo…I like it too much..

    The SEC has a handful of staple teams, and UK is going to remove them (and that is the exact moment when the metaphor falls apart).

    Seriously though, I like the new logo despite its office supply inspiration.

    Dare I say it, but if UK’s new logo is a staple remover, would an appropriate office supply logo for UofSMELL be a hole punch?

      Pretty sure they would be whiteout, they love to cover things up. #KSRTopTen

      how about a paperclip bent in way that would hold a very small cigarette of some sort?

    We simply don’t get it……have we won in the ‘special’ jerseys yet?

    Who’s making our deals with Nike?

    A few, not too many though. I know we beat South Carolina with the black jerseys in 14 and Missouri in gray this year.
