Kentucky Wildcats fans who like variety are in for a treat, as 18 potential uniform combinations were revealed yesterday by the official Facebook page of the University of Kentucky football program.

Of course, blue is the primary hue of most of the potential uniforms, but a heavy use of black and white -- including black pants under white shirts -- signals a pretty significant departure from Kentucky uniform tradition. The potential more prevalent use of Kentucky's white helmets also marks a noteworthy shift in style.

Whether many of these uniforms will actually be used remains to be seen. The Facebook album, at first glance, seems to be nothing more than an introduction to the many possibilities available to the Kentucky football team, and not so much a foreshadowing of uniforms to come.
