these new uniforms are awesome!!coach Calipari's wildcats are going to rock them out!!! :)

The uniforms are BAD TO THE BONE

That is not our wildcat. Don't know what that critter is. Nice to see the outline of the state in the protective place. It is Japanese tradition to embroider a symbol at the back of the neck to protect the wearer from evil spirits sneaking up on you. Is that a nod toward Toyota?

I think it's funny how they're previewing the back... it must be because Kentcuky, I mean Kentucky is spelled wrong on the front http://twitpic.com/12eal0

"Eight universities will debut in 2010 the Nike Hyperelite basketball uniform."

Nobody has a problem with that but me? Kentucky's uniforms shouldn't be basically the same as 7 other school's uniforms.
Kentucky uniforms were always unique and different and other schools copied UK.
Heck, if it's up to Nike maybe everyone will eventually have the same school colors and mascott if they can make money from it.

The world is really going to crap.

I hope these new usis have the players names on the back of the uniform. Actually I am not in love with them at all. I do like the state of Kentucky on the uniform though, but miss the names

The uniforms will have names on them. THe 120 inside the state is to represent the 12 counties in the commonwealth.

I loved the new uniforms they wore last night. When you have the classiest coach on the planet you are going to have the classiest players, so they will look like they play.......awesome!!!!!

Classy Uniforms for a classy team and hey cuz dont let em get to ya have a great remaining season you guys rock though i did have to stay up late and pull you to victory over Miss.State LOL
