Photo: ESPN's Brian Bennett Found Cincinnati Band Member's '35-1' Sign Thrown In The Trash

Cincinnati band member's 35-1 sign is thrown in trash.


Give some credit to Cincinnati—the Bearcats couldn't quite close, and Kentucky dominated today's game down the stretch, but they never gave the impression that they were intimidated by the Wildcats. One UC band member was similarly confident, and had a very simple '35-1' sign at the KFC Yum! Center, which got some traction on social media before the game. Even Kentucky superfan Ashley Judd commented on it.

My favorite Cincinnati is "35-1." Clever. Aspirational. And it ain't gonna happen. @KentuckyMBB#marchmadness

After the game, however, that Bearcat fan was clearly dejected. ESPN's Brian Bennett came across the sign in the trash after the game.

Despite Cincinnati's best effort, Kentucky became the first team in college basketball history to reach 36-0 with the win.
