A portion of the Kentucky fan base was up in arms this morning as a cartoon from Wednesday’s edition of the Courier Journal had gone viral on Twitter.
This cartoon left the Big Blue Nation feeling a little disrespected. Although this appears to be harmless and the cartoonist even added a ‘get well soon, Nerlens’ note to the side, certain Kentucky fans took it as if the C-J was mocking and or making fun of Noel’s season-ending injury.

After seeing the cartoon from the Courier-Journal, Erin decided to draw her own cartoon, taking a shot at Louisville fans in the process. This photo was posted on her Twitter account earlier this morning.
Whatever makes you feel better, I guess?
