Batman has had it

If you've been on Facebook or Twitter the last few days, you have no doubt been subjected to unbelievable factoids about Louisville basketball history, aesthetic critiques of Louisville uniforms, and questions about your own lineage, all by our oh-so-courteous neighbors up the road.

Much of this is related to the Little Blue fear of heading to the NIT fresh off of their eighth national title (which they cannot mention without simultaneously doing the John Wall Dance, drawing a unibrow with a Sharpie, and faking a Kid-n-Play haircut). Some coping mechanisms have emerged: pledging fealty to Stoops' troops, complaining about freshmen college basketball players playing like an AAU team (which is, of course, a collection of amateur talent for the purposes of playing basketball--sounds familiar), and talking about random high school students who may or may not end up being all that great (see: UK Basketball 2012-2013).

It's been a difficult year for the state's faithful. In addition to our own success, their grief has been compounded by the success of Duke and Indiana. There are five stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. They're still working on that last bit.

Batman--who is, as we all know, a Louisville fan--recently found himself in a discussion with Robin (who is, as we all know, an LBA fan).
