KY Politicians Who Aren’t Picking Louisville to Win #NCAA Tourney

US Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)

With last year’s tournament champions, the University of Kentucky Wildcats, absent from the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament this year, you’d think it was a sure thing. Bluegrass State politicians would be lining up to pick number-one seeded Louisville Cardinals to go all the way. But that isn’t the case.

via Louisville Courier-Journal:

….U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer picked 16th seeded Western Kentucky University to upset the University of Kansas.

Gov. Steve Beshear didn’t fill out a bracket. Rand Paul didn’t respond to our request for a bracket. Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson and actress/possible U.S. Senate candidate Ashley Judd declined to participate.

(In case you’re wondering where the Wildcats are, they barely qualified for this year’s runner-up competition, the NIT and lost in the first round last night to unknown Robert Morris, 59-57.)
