I freely admit to being surprised about these polling results. The Public Policy Polling group took a survey of Kentucky citizens and asked, among other questions, who they would be rooting for this weekend as Louisville goes for the title. Here were some of the results:
1. Are you Rooting for Louisville to win the National Title?
Not Sure: 10%
2. Do you consider yourself more of a UK or UL fan?
Not Sure: 12%
So there you go…more people rooting for UL to win than you would think. I am sure part of the support for UL comes from the “non-hardcore” fans that populate such surveys and from the age bracket of the survey (68% of those surveyed were over the age of 45). But still, somewhat surprising.
