We’ve told you before that no part of the football uniform is safe these days — teams are going to swag out every article of clothing possible in order to impress recruits and stay fresh. Tomorrow vs. Mississippi State, the Kentucky Wildcats will be wearing something that we’ve never seen before — 3-D thigh pads that will display the school logo embossed through the players’ pants:

I’m not so sure that this trend will catch on everywhere, but it’s definitely something new to mix things up.
