Coming into the season, expectations for Kentucky were sky-high. With five 5-star recruits joining the fray along with Alex Poythress and Willie Cauley-Stein, Wildcats fans were predicting an undefeated season and National Championship before the season even began.
Unfortunately for coach John Calipari and company, things didn’t go as planned. The Wildcats lost their third game of the season to Michigan State – their first of nine losses on the year.
Despite the losses, the Wildcats are pretty much a lock to receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, and one UK fan is still confident that the Wildcats will come out on top.
How confident? Check this out:
Yes, this guy seriously got “2014 National Champions” (poorly) tattooed on his own flesh.
Predictably, our pal Tyrone raised plenty of eyebrows across the Twitterverse, but he seems to be in good spirits about it all.
Wow! I can't even keep up with all these tweets. People take life wayyyy too serious lol. It's just a tattoo hehe— Tyrone (@Tizzblack) March 13, 2014

The Wildcats will square off with the winner of Thursday night’s Alabama-LSU game in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament on Friday. Hopefully for this guy’s sake that game will be the beginning of a hot streak for Kentucky.
