Even though Nerlens Noel is out for the season and very well may have played his last game in a Kentucky Wildcats uniform, the big freshman is still repping his school as hard as ever.

On Thursday, Noel posted this picture to Instagram with just the caption, "It's different. #UK."

Oh, it's different alright.

It's one thing to have a logo shaved into your head, but adding color takes it to a whole 'nother level. I hope he can afford some new pillowcases.

The thing I love about this is that it throws it into the faces of everyone who bashes the one-and-done culture that John Calipari has built at Kentucky and says that these kids are just hired guns. How can you care about a kid who just comes for one year and leaves?

This is how.

Noel may ultimately only end up staying for one year, but he has embraced Kentucky and their fans, as plenty of other one-and-dones have done since Cal came to Lexington. They know that no matter how long they stay, they will always be a part of Big Blue Nation. And BBN is everywhere.
