Photo: Kentucky Fan Makes "Putin Is A Cardinal" Banner Ahead Of Sweet 16 Matchup

Putin's reputation has taken a severe hit given the recent conflict over in Ukraine.

Things should only intensify on both sides until tip-off around 10 PM EST. And of course, after the game, there will be only be one fan base talking.
