I thought I would highlight the UofL sportsmanship showed on our blog, in direct contrast the Georgetown fans (see http://www.theuconnblog.com/2011/3/10/2041735/hoya-and-hate and the first 5 or 6 posts here for background: http://www.theuconnblog.com/2011/3/10/2041900/theopenthread-no-9-uconn-huskies-vs-no-1-pittsburgh-panthers). For the record, I HAAAATTTTEEE Pitinio, and don't think "Pitino" and "Class" should be used in the same sentence. I think that makes this post more impressive. I noticed a pretty consistent theme from the UofL people posting:
UL fan here
Great game by Uconn, congrats. You guys deserve to win if you play so well against our style after playing 4 games in the 4days before the game.

Another U of L fan here
Well, the Cards didn’t want the Huskies to feel bad losing three times to U of L in the same year so we figured we’d let you guys have one. Seriously, great effort by UCONN, an incredible week for you guys and big time congrats. We’re very, very proud of our Cards and tonight’s loss was no shame for us, just props to you. Kemba is unreal to watch and I was cheering for UCONN to beat Pitt because I like the team, not because I thought you guys would be easier to beat. His step back J was all time awesome in that game. Anyway, congrats again and let’s have both teams represent the BEAST in the tourney in victory.

Good luck from a Louisville fan. I love watching UCONN play, for me this is the perfect game to end the tournament.

Great game by UConn. You guys deserve this moment. Great game.
Our guys brought it and you all responded. No excuses or complaints here. Great basketball.
Best of luck in the NCAA’s.
