The Hunger Games is doing amazing at the box office and everyone is loving the movie. One of the stars of the movies, Josh Hutcherson, is a huge Kentucky Wildcats fan and even painted his face before a game. You can guess who he is rooting for in the Final Four.

In the world of Craigslist, almost anything can happen and recently, one diehard Kentucky Wildcats fan has attempted to get tickets to the Final Four by offering his wife as compensation.
Here is the advertisement as it appeared:
It's most likely fake but still entertaining nevertheless.

We’re going to end our Cheerleaders of the Final Four preview with the tournament’s odds-on favorite: the Kentucky Wildcats. I think we all expected the ‘Cats to be here, so it’s no surprise the Bluegrass State is taking over Bourbon Street.
What do we know about Lindsey? She’s about to have her cheerleader routine analyzed by 75,000 fans at the Final Four. And on TV....
Losing his starting job hasn't kept Kentucky senior Darius Miller from providing the leadership that has kept the freshman-laden Wildcats on track for a national championship.
When the freshmen needed help finding their classes, Miller was there. When it was time to work out, Miller made sure everyone was on time. When he needed to sit for the good of the team, Miller took a...
In the press conference after his team beat Baylor to advance for the Final Four, Kentucky Coach John Calipari asked, "Is the floor going to be raised (in the Super Dome)? Does anybody know?"
When was confirmed that the floor would, indeed, be elevated a couple of feet above field level for the games, Cal said, "That makes it harder. When they raise that floor, now...
KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) -- Tiffany Hayes scored 22 points and top-seed Connecticut beat Kentucky 80-65 on Tuesday night to advance to the Final Four for the fifth straight season.
Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis added 18 for UConn (33-4), which will play the winner of Notre Dame and Maryland on Sunday in Denver. The Huskies matched their own school mark of five straight trips to the national...
Kentucky Wildcats fans have a lot to be excited about in the present, as they’re taking on their hated rival Louisville in the 2012 Final Four, but last night’s McDonald’s All-American Game also might have made UK fans think about the future for a bit.
Usually, you don’t think about next year’s recruiting class until the season is over. However, the way incoming UK freshmen...
For the better part of the first half, it looked as though the UConn Huskies women's basketball team wouldn't get to the Final Four.
They started out quickly only to see the Kentucky Wildcats battle back. But as we've seen for the entire season, when UConn clamps down on defense and plays UConn basketball, the other teams are in trouble.
That strong second half defensive...
The Kentucky Wildcats have looked unbeatable in their run to the final four. As well as they are playing I don’t know if some of the bad NBA teams could beat them. There is really no weakness to their game right now. Guards Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb are playing their best basketball of the season. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd Gilchrist could be the first...
The Kentucky Wildcats are the top ranked team in the nation. Nobody can really argue with their #1 status. They have a guady 36-2 record heading into this Final Four. They’re but a few better sequences away from being unblemished and chasing history in New Orleans. Had they hit their free throws in the final minute in Bloomington, there is no Christian Watford game winner, and...
Let's be honest. Kentucky has a lot of weapons. John Calipari's offense makes that a necessity. He recruits so that he has four players on the floor who can attack off the dribble, and he recruits at a high enough level that he can force mis-matches with his elite players. Terrence Jones, when he's on, can be a point-forward matchup nightmare. Anthony Davis doesn'...
Via @Kristin_WallsThe Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals are about to match up in one of the most important games in this bitter rivalry. We’ve all heard the story about how a Cardinal fan and Wildcat fan got into a fight at a dialysis center.This scene was more about state pride as the twin spires lit up the night.
Future Edenton Steamer and current University of Tennessee pitcher, Zack Godley has just been named the Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week. On Friday night, he held the previously undefeated Kentucky Wildcats to just a run on three hits in eight innings of work. You can read the press release here.
Rick Pitino and John Calipari. If you haven’t heard, they are coaching against each other in a rather big game this Saturday. Two teams from the same state have never previously played each other in the Final Four. And this isn’t just any state, it’s Kentucky; where they don’t care much about football, baseball, or hockey. [...]
If there’s one thing Kentucky coach John Calipari knows he won’t do this week, it’s feed the UK-Louisville rivalry hype.
