Look closely as the photo at left. It was during that game that Kentucky’s almost-all-black football uniform became a staple of the program. When Kentucky took down Tennessee last November — ending a 26-year losing streak to the Vols — the black and blue look was truly beatified.

KentuckySportsRadio.com reports that Patrick Graffree — a defensive line signee from Cecilia, Kentucky — tweeted today that Joker Phillips has already told his seniors-to-be that the Cats will add some black helmets to their mix of wardrobe options in 2012.
Cool. ’Cause nobody’s adding black to their uniforms these days. (Sigh.)
