Cat fan's 'crazy' tattoo gets attention of basketball team

By  | 

MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Some call him crazy, but one Big Blue Fan is pretty confident when it comes to the Cats. So confident, in fact, he's outlined his prediction for this year's NCAA Tournament in a very permanent way.

Tyler Black says even some of the craziest fans he knows, has given up on this year's UK Basketball team. But not Black.

It was after the cats lost to South Carolina, one of their worst losses of the season, that Black decided to do something bold to show his team spirit. Black got a "2014 National Champions" tattoo on his calf.

It's a prediction that has many shaking their heads, but Black believes his tattoo has helped bring a little luck to the Cats.

"We are doing awesome now, its a completely different team," he explains.

Even Willie Cauley-Stein gave Black a shout out for his extreme show of support.

"He said I was crazy, but he loved it," says Black.

Some may call it crazy now, but what if UK does end up winning their 9th National Championship this year?

"I would get to say, 'I told you so,'" says Black, "who's laughing now... I'd get the last laugh. So it would be pretty sweet."

On the other hand, should Kentucky lose, Black says he still plans to keep the tattoo.
