Year in Review - Kentucky Wildcats Football Uniform Review

First and foremost I hate the new blue helmets as they do not match the uniforms whatsoever. If you look at the blue helmet from 2013 vs Vanderbilt you can see the helmet nearly matches the uniform,but now the helmet looks a lot darker than the uniform which bugs the living hell out of me. Not only is it darker, but it looks like shit compared to the old helmet. Why in the heck did they change the helmet color? It doesn't make sense to me.

Second, I hate the chrome helmet, the gray uniform, and I loathe the black uniform. Our colors are Blue & White, not Chrome, Gray & Black. I feel like sometimes the players only cared what we were wearing instead of actually playing the game on the field. I propose until this team can win 6 games, that our uniforms return to the basics with the 2013 Blue Helmet, 2013 White Helmet, and the blue and white uniforms. Allow the gray and black uniforms to be worn only as reward for winning games. 

Below were the uniforms for each game with my rankings from A (Beautiful) to F (Ugly):

Game 1: I love the jersey and pants, but don't like the mismatched helmet color (B+)

Game 2: I love this look, it would be perfect is the facemask, stripes and logo color matched the pants (A)

Game 3: I hate chrome and gray (D-)

Game 4:I hate the blue helmet with chrome and gray (F) 

Game 5:Nice looking uniform (read above about helmet) (A) 

Game 6: Did I mention I hate chrome? (D-)

Game 7: Did I mention I hate the chrome on the blue helmet (C)

Game 8: Did I mention I hate chrome and black? (FFFFFF--------_

Game 9: Nice looking uniform (A)

Game 10: Best looking uniform of the year (A+)
