ESPN asked this simple poll question today: Which team are you rooting for to win the men’s college basketball national title? The results were interesting and pretty humorous. The interesting: Wisconsin led the way, with 37 percent of the votes, at the time of the picture below. The humorous: Only one state was rooting for Kentucky. See the poll results in this post.

Knowing how much Indiana fans dislike Kentucky, it’s unknown if Badger or Hoosier fans enjoy these results more.

In the basketball world, Kentucky is disliked similar to the Yankees in Baseball and Green Bay or Dallas in Football.

Haters, you should be ashamed. Kentucky’s team of freshman were given an impossible task. Win their bracket to get to the final 4. They fought tooth and nail every game and they did it. We know all you haters will root against us, but we’re Big Blue NATION. OUR cheers count more than yours! NaNaNaNa NaNaNaNa, Hey Hey Hey, GOODBYE! We’re so proud of our Baby Cats!
