Yesterday, actress and Kentucky superfan Ashley Judd took to Facebook to apologize to Cincinnati's Octavius Ellis on behalf of her fellow Wildcat fans for the offensive and racist remarks sent to him following the teams' Round of 32 game. Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin was quick to accept Judd's apology via Twitter, but he also added an interesting little note at the end of his second tweet.

">@ashleyjudd for her kind words for Octavious. Te' is a "Great"young man to those of us that actually know him. — Mick Cronin (@CoachCroninUC)

Was Cronin trying to relate to Judd, or was the Bearcats' coach hitting on her? We can't be totally sure, but Cincinnati and Lexington are only about 83 miles apart...
