Yesterday, the SEC Network opened its doors to the media in Charlotte, and among the various bells and whistles they unveiled were each school’s graphics packages. Here’s Kentucky’s main graphic, which is pretty cool. Let’s break it down:
- The eight National Championship trophies, of course (hope they saved the working file to add #9)
- Props for using the “Big Blue Nation” slogan and C-A-T-S chant. I realize “On! On!” is the beginning to our fight song, but meh.
- Love the three goggle, even if someone in the comments section will point out that KENTUCKY DIDN’T START THAT!
- Nice use of Memorial Hall in the background
- Bobby Knight’s not happy about that graduation cap
- Between the Adolph Rupp playing card, Cawood’s Court, the trophies, and the three goggle, this graphic is obviously basketball centric. Thankfully, there’s a UK football helmet and generic football to remind the rest of the league UK has a football team.
- I don’t get the trumpet.
You can see the animation here. It autoplays, so I’m doing you a favor by linking it, promise.
Things I would add:
- All of the Cal gifs. Just all of them. They could even make up the entire background of the picture for all I care.
- A cartoon Angry Stoops prowling back and forth
- A giant Matt Elam with his elbow on the UK logo
- Mitch Barnhart’s sweater vests
- Dancing Guy sliding down the diagonal of the K
- Audio of the Air Raid siren
Honestly, I’m shocked there isn’t a horse in there. That’s like televising a sporting event in Nashville and not showing a guitar.
