Morehead State erects 6 billboards in Kentucky

Talk about getting a lot of mileage out of one win.

Morehead State gave us one of the biggest upsets of this year's NCAA tournament when the 13th-seeded Eagles knocked off in-state foe, No. 4 Louisville, in the second round of the Big Bracket. The drama came on the opening Thursday, in Denver, and not only was I there to write about it, I also predicted such an occurrence. (I'll continue to ride off that trifecta upset pick for a few more weeks, so just deal.)

The 62-61 Eagles win delivered a lot of great things, including some of the best photos from this year in college basketball. But nothing's as fantastic as what's popping up along the interstate pathways of Kentucky: a gleeful reminder for Morehead State fans; a depressing recollection for Cardinals lovers who hoped to make a deep run in this year's Dance; and as good of an excuse as any other for Kentucky's faithful to laugh their heads off while they cruise about the Bluegrass State.

KentuckySportsRadio.com, the site whose proprietor is our very own Matt Jones, spread the knowledge about the Eagles' billboards yesterday, so a tip of the hat to them for tipping us off to this. But now the local pride is spreading national, as many sites have picked up on the roadside reminders. The blog can't deny a good showing of school pride, local ribbing and thinly veiled jocularity.

With that in mind, we give props to Card Chronicle for taking the joke in stride. All in good fun. Let the billboards do the talking in the offseason, and how about Louisville and Morehead State schedule each other every year from now on? The teams, separated by 138 miles of I-64 highway (Lexington serves as a halfway point), have sporadically played each other in recent years, Louisville winning every meeting in history until the most recent one. It's time to make this an annual thing.

While it was a great win, it was only ONE win. The team simply did'nt get up for Richmond two days later, and thats the problem. Like the Morehead State fans and school, they were satisfied with one victory. You just cant do that. It's the NCAA Tournament for gods sake. You gotta be hungrier and more humble than this in my opinion.

so much talk for a team that got flexed on by kansas on n off the court.....mean while vcu got loose and did their dougie on them. way to be the negative nancy.

It was a f'n fluke.  The only thing good about this team is the home cround gets to chant...."I want morehead."  Which is fun....But beyond that...There is no reason for UofL to schedule this team ever.  One win ever in history doesn't make a rival and for sure won't make for a good game.
