Beanie Mixes Up Kentucky and Kansas - Lost Lettermen

Beanie Mixes Up Kentucky and Kansas

October 31st, 2013| by

Important college sports-themed abbreviation lesson of the day: The shorthand for Kentucky is “UK,” while for Kansas it’s “KU.” Both schools boast very proud fan bases who, while they respect the heritage of the other school, don’t tolerate anyone who mixes them up.

Such as the manufacturer of the beanie pictured below, one that features a Jayhawk with “KU” inscribed on it as well as Kentucky’s interlocking “UK” logo.

How awkward (and confusing) would it have been had Andrew Wiggins announced his college decision by donning this?
