We’re less than a week away from Kentucky football being on our TV. Now that we’re done screaming our heads off that we’re so close, let’s take a look at rankings of a different sort. Before the season starts everyone wants to know who is ranked in the AP Poll, conference projections, Heisman predictions, etc. But, what about jersey designs and specifically helmet designs? Well, Saturday Down South took care of those rankings and they have Kentucky’s chrome design with the second best design, behind just Vanderbilt.

Here’s what they said about it:

UniSwag’s winner of the best helmet last season, Kentucky’s chrome alternate is one of several gameday options the Wildcats have at their disposal now that they’ve incorporated black and grey into their uniform options. These debuted against South Carolina (in a win no less) to rave reviews. Paired with black jerseys, the blue and chrome really pops.

Now because of those helmets, your obligatory video of that great game:

    paul finebaum show (i think) picked the best two helmets (in no order) and they came up with the matte arkansas helmet and the chrome uk helmet.

    terrible list. total click bait. not worth a mention here, either. some traditional, logo-only helmets are good, some bad, with no reason one way or the other. says he’s a fan of chrome “as long as it’s not too much” then picks our all-chrome number 2. (he must mean he doesn’t like it when they chrome the inside.) he says of tennessee’s: “the checkerboard stripe’s an added touch.” …of what? must be an added touch of something bad, since he has them near the bottom and doesn’t say anything that’s wrong with the helmet. that is the case with the whole list though. a 1-to-14 list–he definitely hates #14, thinks #10’s boring, but other than that not an unkind word about the bottom half of the list.

    no reason to read. no reason to write. no reason to link to.

    How long until the old folks come in saying our colors are blue and white, not grey black and chrome?

    I’m just enjoying the beauty of the old “UK” logos in this post.
    Either go “Power K” or old “UK”… but I cringe to think of that
    hideos so-called “logo” on our helmets and uniforms this season.
    Seriously, whoever okayed that should be fired. And kicked
    hard. In the shins. And maybe slapped about the ears a little bit.

    This new helmet is REALLY nice:

    Also, if you guys paid attention the first time the new logo was spotted, UK Athletics tweeted that for now, the teams and fans will still sport the current logo that’s been in use since ’97. Both pieces of info were posted to KSR. Read…
