Photo: Kentucky Has Already Hung "2014 NCAA Runner Up" Banner At Rupp Arena

Well, that was fast. It hasn't even been 24 hours since the completion of last night's NCAA Tournament title game between Kentucky and UConn, and the Wildcats are already hanging up their "Runner Up" banner at Rupp Arena. Steve Jones of The Courier-Journal tweeted out a few photos this afternoon.

Surely, UK fans would prefer a slightly different banner, unveiled during a gigantic ceremony next season. But Kentucky fans should still be very proud of what this team accomplished. And when you look at the past three banners - the Final Four appearance in 2011, the national title in 2012 and the national runner-up in 2014 - there isn't much to be upset about.
