║ Schools: Florida, Kentucky

If you thought Nike only made a mockery of traditional football uniforms, boy, are you in for a surprise. The global sports manufacturer will outfit Florida, Kentucky and a number of non-SEC schools in a new wave of silver unis, featuring half-hidden logo patterns and just a hint of school colors in the coming weeks.
The new duds from Nike’s Hyper Elite Platinum series were unveiled today. And the word “duds” was chosen for a reason. They’re sci-fi, right down to the lone padded arm band. (Click the headline for a better look.)
Look, this writer isn’t 20, he’s 40. So the target audience I’m not. And it’s likely that many teens will go coo-coo for Nike puffs once again. But personally, I like Nike’s designs when they provide tweaks to past uniform designs.
Not when they look like they’re one step removed from what Starbuck and Apollo would wear in the Colonial Triad League.
