Apparently people connected with Morehead State are still celebrating the school’s unlikely 62-61 win over the University of Louisville basketball team in the opening round of the NCAA tournament last season.

Like Coach Donnie Tyndall, reliving the win with Mark Story of the Lexington Herald-Leader over the weekend:

Whatever happens in the future, Tyndall will always be able to close his eyes and have Morehead 62, U of L 61. “The biggest win in the history of this program, on a national stage, against a coaching icon like Coach Pitino,” Tyndall said. “You feel fortunate to have been a part of something like that, you really do.”

Morehead fans so elated about the upset that they’re not about to remove the half dozen billboards around the state anytime soon.

How nice, those constant reminders.

  1. Charlie,
    Driving on the Watterson Expressway this afternoon, I saw this year’s version of UK football’s silly billboard campaign in Jefferson County. I was wondering if anyone had a comment of this years “Rise” slogan? How does it compare to Gam3Day or Hardware Matters lame campaigns of the past?

    1. Perhaps they need to act like it but the fact remains they beat us. And it wasn’t a half court bounce off the overhead scoreboard bank after the buzzer that got counted anyway.

      And Driscoll wasn’t one of the officials.
