After Rick Pitino called out Digger Phelps for picking Louisville to go down in the Sweet 16, fans took to Twitter to hilariously hate on the ESPN analyst.
The bitter rivalry between the University of Louisville and Kentucky has been elevated several notches because of UofL’s remarkable success and UK’s abysmal failure in basketball. Karma depends on where one’s loyalty stands.

ATLANTA -- The selection committee did not do the Louisville Cardinals, the NCAA tournament's No. 1 overall seed, any favors in the Midwest region.
If Louisville coach Rick Pitino is to capture his second national title, he will have to guide his team through one of the most dangerous regionals: the other top seeds in the Midwest, Nos. 1 through 6, are Duke, Michigan State,...

Louisville/ North Carolina A&T- Russ Smith could play this game 1 on 5 and the Cardinals would still win.
Colorado State/ Missouri-The Rams are the best rebounding team in the nation and they start 5 seniors that’s what wins in March.
Oklahoma State/ Oregon- Oregon got screwed as a 12 the seed but I still like Oklahoma State because they have the best player in the...
