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

Well what do we have here?

UK cornerback J.D. Harmon tweeted photos of a black UK football helmet with a blue UK logo on the left side and a chrome number on the right. It appears to be the homemade work of a fan but still cool nonetheless.

I might believe it if not for it being in someone’s backyard.

    I like the look, if they wear the helmet a few times a year.

    Looks good. Maybe it will distract from the 2 and 10 record.

      Kind of like how grammar and punctuation is hard for you?

      Boy I may not be Einstein but even I see irony in your reply

      That was intentional, sir. And you obviously don’t know the definition of irony.

      That’s cool, but the joke was on you when you replied the first time. Go Cats!

      You should try looking up irony instead of claiming others don’t know the definition when you get caught in it. Have a nice day.

      When they start winning games, then I will not care what they wear. Until then they have not earned the right to f*@k with the uniforms.

      No, we need to f*@k with the uniform. Our uniform right now is synonymous with losing. I don’t want to wear the same uniform that makes opposing teams laugh at us. I want a uniform that terrifies.

    It’s a homemade makeup with a Riddell. Sticker and numbers probably bought at Meijer. It’s in someone’s backyard. Doubt official helmet would make it to someone’s house…..geeeeez

    The “Warning” sticker is the real giveaway.

    All these traditional folks on here… SMDH… These helmets are legit. These would be a great shake up for a “blackout” kind of game. Perhaps against the dirty birds or the vols.

    Everyone knows that the elderly are apprehensive to change. And if you’re an older individual and you disagree with that comment, then that is confirmation that you are, in fact, old.

      Just because it isn’t traditional ISN’T the reason some people don’t like this. It’s ugly. Poor design, plain and simple. Shiny decals, matte helmet, goofy fonts… I get that this is a homemade thing, but it’s an UGLY homemade thing. If UK wants to do black and blue, that’s beyond my control, but those two colors combined do nothing for me.

    Wake up ppl it’s 2014! It’s nice for a game or two and there are warning labels on any and helmets, football baseball hockey

    Heck, why not? Let’s make it a tradition to change helmets evey year. Funny how Alabama haz ben able to win wearing the same helmets for ever.
    But since we’re starting traditions, why not.
    I guess winning as a tradiation only for schools that like to wear dull helmets. So say that a winning tradition lack the need to reduce seating too. Just think of the money we could have saved by winning.
    Haw, ws don’t need to win, any one seen pressure on the athletic director to have a winning football program?

    You guys love being in a Cardinals color. Blue and white not good enough anymore? My have the times changed.

      You gonna go there? Would you believe me if I told you that yellow/gold is still one of UK’s official colors? I mean, if we’re whining and moaning about how the uniforms might change, we better start screaming for the most traditional colors that there are, correct? So blue/white/yellow on all uniforms from now on, right?

      Do us a favor and join this century.

    Since when did helmets dictate wins? UK doesn’t have a rich tradition of football so we have to do something to stick out. Look at Oregon… They were nothing before they embraced the crazy schemes and helmets. What did it get them? RECRUITS. And what do recruits get you? More than 2 wins.

    And to you, “lexfan”… I feel pretty confident when I say that 80-90% of schools use black in some capacity in their uniforms. Oh and for the record, the UK baseball team has a black jersey, and they’re the best looking of the ones they have..

    This or even the gray with the old school “Power K” logo would be cool. I know it won’t happen because the interlocking UK logo took the place of the wildcat logo but it would be cool for a throwback

    What!!! Louisville is claiming we are trying to “be like them” because of the color black. Have u even watched sports in the last 10 years. With that being said’ do “they’ even have a black helmet?
