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

The back of the scoreboard is done

The back of the video board facing Nicholasville Road is now finished, featuring a mural of former players and the new UK logo.

The original design had “‘Til the Battle is Won” in block letters, but after Chester led a coup against it, UK went back to the drawing board, offering four designs for fans to vote on. The one above narrowly beat out the mural of the players with the Kentucky state outline, which may grace the back of the other video board facing the Nutter Field House.

Thoughts? Crooked K and all, I like it.

UPDATE: Here’s a picture of the other video board, courtesy of Freddie Maggard.

    Nice. Now we can fret over the rest of the stadium.

    I still don’t like the K having Peyronie’s Disease.

      Technically, “K” by itself is not a word, but I agree with your sentiment.

    The A in Commonwealth just looks so odd…..like it’s the wrong font or something.

      Good eye, agree completely. Someone in a position of significant authority approved that letter “K”…hopefully that will be the worst decision out of the athletic department this year.
      Looking forward to a 3-1 start and a bowl berth at minimum.

      I just noticed that, now I will never be able to unnotice it. Thank you.

      the L and the T are too close to each other, as well

    Nice of KSR to just take my picture I took last night and post it. I posted it originally at other website and it looks like they just took it and posted it here. Thanks for the credit for the pic, per the usual.

      Did you post it on Twitter at all? Pretty sure that’s public domain. If not then you have a legit point. If you are concerned about not getting credit or not; watermark your pic’s, especially on twitter.

      Rupps: I’m actually not that concerned with it…just found it interesting. I did not post on twitter…I posted on a premium board last night…so it would seem that KSR still lurks on the premium board for information, pictures…etc.

    Can they not match the blue on the banner with the blue paint?

      Banner vs. paint you’ll ALWAYS notice a difference even if the color is matched perfectly. Two different materials will reflect light differently making the difference noticeable even if the colors are a dead match. Is what it is; looks good. Can’t wait for Saturday!

    Get rid of the broken-arm K. Worst uk logo ever

    Now we can all complain about how small the UK is on the side of the press box compared to what it was suppose to be.

    The new design “K” isn’t just a UK Athletics design. It’s all over campus in dorms, food areas, etc. So this wasn’t someone in the athletics department making a change.

    I like the state outline w/ the players. The crooked “K” is horrible! Why spend all that money updating the stadium and then add a broken “K”.

    Wow, our fans complain about almost anything. It looks great and I’m pumped.

    Who in their right mind thought the Crooked K was an IMPROVEMENT? It reminds me of back in middle school when someone was trying to draw a UK logo on their binder and hosed it up…
