Many folks spent a majority of the day rooting on one of the four Kentucky teams playing in the NCAA tournament today.

"I would pull for any Kentucky team expect for Louisville," explains UK fan Brian Kirby, "I've always been a die hard Kentucky fan and if you're a Kentucky fan you can't be a Louisville fan, it's a rule."

"All I really want to see is Kentucky well represented, be it Murray state or Louisville," explains Louisville fan John Delong, "my son goes to Louisville and I really like their passion, I hope they do well."

"I'm here to root on the Kentucky wildcats," explains Will Toy, "I come at noon and leave at midnight-- it's a five year tradition and I'll be rooting Kentucky hard once the clock strikes."

Dozens of people filled Buffalo Wild Wings off Todds Road to watch Murray State play Colorado State. Four teams from Kentucky are in the tournament- more than any other state in the country.
