The Kentucky Wildcats had a disappointing exit in the Round of 32 during the 2016 NCAA Tournament when they fell to the Indiana Hoosiers. The team recently released their “celebration issue” of the “Cats’ Pause” magazine and ESPN’s Dan Dakich decided to have a little fun with the Wildcats.
As many may know, Dakich, who is now an ESPN radio host and college basketball analyst, grew up in Gary, Indiana, played for the Hoosiers in the early 80s, and was an assistant coach at Indiana under Bobby Knight for 12 years.
When he saw that the Wildcats were celebrating a second round loss, he magnificently trolled the Big Blue Nation.

The Wildcats are looking to reload for the 2016-17 season after losing SEC Player of the Year Tyler Ulis and freshman phenom Jamal Murray to the NBA Draft. We can only hope that Dan Dakich’s Hoosiers get to meet up with the Wildcats at some point during the season.
