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

New Uniforms’ Friday Morning Wakeup


Here in a little over two hours, the University of Kentucky will introduce its brand new basketball and football uniforms to the world. A press conference is being held in the recruiting room of Commonwealth Stadium with Mitch Barnhart, John Calipari and Mark Stoops on hand to unveil the new threads and to explain the reasoning behind the change. Nike creative director Keith Crawford will also be there to tell us what went into each design.

The press conference is scheduled for 10:30 am and we have the live stream set up here on the site you can all follow along. I will have a full report with photos soon after, so be on the look out for that.

Here’s the football team seeing its new unis for the first time:

Football’s will be a permanent look, while basketball’s will be a one-time wear.



John Calipari to preview Florida at 2 pm.

Kentucky has a must-win basketball game tomorrow afternoon in Rupp Arena and John Calipari has a few things to say about it and about his team today. He and a couple of players will be available for questions later this afternoon and I’ll have all of their comments here on the site.

Beat Florida.

UK Hoops dropped another one.

UK’s 18th-ranked women are now in the bottom half of the conference at 4-6 after taking a loss to No. 2 South Carolina in Columbia last night. UK Hoops has now lost four out of five games in the SEC.

UK Hoops needs to finish strong in these last six games, four of which are at home, beginning Sunday against LSU.

NBA All-Star weekend is full of Wildcats.

The NBA announced its participants for the entire slate of its All-Star weekend and seven Wildcats will be in Toronto participating in some form:

All-Stars: John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis
Skills Challenge: DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, Karl-Anthony Towns
Three-point Contest: Devin Booker
Rising Stars: Karl-Anthony Towns, Nerlens Noel, Trey Lyles

He’s not quite at his goal of having coached half of the All-Star game, but Coach Cal is doing a good job of filling up the weekend with his players.

How about that for a recruiting tool?

A UK cheerleader could really use your votes.

UK cheerleading doesn’t know what it’s like to lose so let’s not let Megan Glisson feel that feeling in her online contest for the cover of American Cheerleader magazine.

Megan and the Wildcat are up against cheerleaders from Central Florida and South Carolina for the next cover of the magazine and it will be determined by online vote. You can help her out by submitting your vote here.

Let’s put those #BBN internet powers to good use and get her a landslide win in the contest.

Keeps eyes on the University of Louisville today.

That’s all I’m saying.

Matt and Ryan are at Pie Five Pizza for today’s show.

And I’m extremely jealous.

Tune in to hear what they have to say at 10 am.

    I hate the basketball team’s shorts right now. They’re horrible. Would love to see the jerseys have “KENTUCKY” in the traditional arc, or something completely alternative since it’s one game — “WILDCATS”

    With this being Nike and “new uniforms” why do I have a sick feeling in my stomach?

    I just hope there are no extraneous colors. Or they are kept to a minimum… Our colors are BLUE and WHITE. Not gray. Not black, certainly not red, not plaid or polka dot… BLUE AND WHITE.

      Can we get some pink and white unis for the football team until they get to a bowl game? Seems like good motivation!

      Totally agree, Mathlete. I would add the coaching staff to that list as well. Show us you are worthy to wear Blue and White!

    I liked the gray uniforms from 2012.

    Icicle unis making a comeback? Loved those. No denim please.

    What is going on at UofL today?

      Considering they’re waiting until a Friday (probably afternoon) to announce it… it’s gonna be juicy. Maybe the Powell indictment (or something from an NCAA investigation related to that) is coming down?

      Their press secretary is probably leaving UL to come to UK. I was a little let down last week when I thought something big was coming out and it ended up being their WR coach coming here.

      Pitino announcing his retirement at the end of the season?

    I don’t have a problem with achromatic uniforms as long as the blue is heavily represented. What ever the new look is I am sure we can all get used to it.

    I love the Secretariat silks. Hope they stay somewhere.

    Grey, white, and black are EVERYBODY’S colors. Sheesh, old people.

    Why do we not have the American Flag on the uniforms?

    I think the way devin booker is playing lately he should be in the rising stars game. Happy that trey made it but i think devin has shown more then him this season, especially after the injury with bledsoe and knight being out the past few weeks.
