Checkerboards: Good or bad?

The debate that is stirring up the fanbase.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-South Regional-Kansas State vs Kentucky Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The latest controversial topic among Kentucky fans appears to be the use of checkerboards for the athletic teams’ uniforms.

The topic has been one talked about on and off, especially during the basketball season last year and this year as the checkerboard design is not-so-subtle in the basketball uniforms while being a little less in-your-face for the other athletics teams.

The debate gained new life when Shannon the Dude from Kentucky Sports Radio questioned Mitch Barnhart during The Morning Tip-Off with Michael Bennett earlier this week. The question seemingly flustered Barnhart initially.

So, we want to get the opinion of readers here at A Sea Of Blue. What do you think of the checkerboard design? Like them? Hate them? Somewhere in between? Indifferent?

Let us know in the poll below and share with other Wildcats fans to get an idea of what the fanbase seems to think on the issue.
