Number 8 – Doron Lamb (@DLamb20) April 3, 2012Is another WBA video in the works? That would make sense, considering both Kyle Wiltjer and Jarrod Polson were recording the crowd as the exited the bus during the victory celebration...
These guys @kwiltj and @jpolson05 are at it again.. – Brian Long (@BrianLong32) April 4, 2012In other Brian Long news, I present to you the best photobomb in history: Poor Brad Calipari. His family celebrated his father's first National Title on Monday, but people still found ways to try and ruin it:
Yeah my dads a cheater!! Woo! @sophierobiccc twitter.com/bradcal5/statu… – Brad Calipari (@bradcal5) April 4, 2012It's okay, Brad. The BBN's got your back. Twany Beckham took this picture of the crowd at the team hotel before the game. Can you say "rockstar"? Terrence Jones has the postgame picture of the crowd at the hotel: Still crazy, still rockstars. Best chain ever?
My chain made of nets!!! Hahaha #8 – Darius Miller (@uknum1) April 3, 2012That's a good look on you, Kyle. You should shoot for that again next year. Jarrod Polson shared a victory picture from the locker room:
Me and my brotha! National champs!!! twitter.com/jpolson05/stat… – Jarrod Polson (@jpolson05) April 3, 2012Polson also shared his thoughts about the victory celebration Tuesday at Rupp:
I've never seen so many people so passionate about something I can only think this is what heaven will be like times a million praising God! – Jarrod Polson (@jpolson05) April 3, 2012Awww, Eloy:

I'm over in Europe...but its still GO BIG BLUE!!!! – Drizzy (@Drake) April 1, 2012Okay, Fashion Police: Did Sam Malone chose his championship outfit wisely? With basketball season over, it's time for Jon Hood to get back to his natural habitat: the lake.
Basketball is over...I want summer now #countrykid #davenportbayfam #jetskilifestyle #suntancity #workoutsallweek #lakeallweekend #redsgames – Jon Hood (@hoodyhood4) April 5, 2012You forgot #lakehairdontcare! Why yes, that is a denim golf bag. You know, just in case Ron Mercer wants to wear his '96 denim uniform on the course and match.
#BBN remember this from 96 twitter.com/rmercer33/stat… – Ron Mercer (@rmercer33) April 3, 2012Boogie rocked some serious UK swag on Championship night: I'm glad to see Alex Poythress' sense of humor already has a big blue tint: Ravi Moss knows:

At Disney World with the family today. Proudly wearing my UK shirt! twitter.com/timcouchtv/sta… – Tim Couch (@timcouchtv) April 3, 2012I really do wonder what attendance was like in class on Tuesday morning at UK...according to The Turtle, it looked pretty dismal. victoryhangoversleep > Psych 101
