The unheralded MVP of March Madness is the college campus banner. The painted trash-talking bedsheets unite students in the Cats’ conquest for a title.
Over the years, banners have developed into a nuanced art form. Once upon a time, an idiot like myself would simply throw up a haphazard F*** UofL onto a bed-sheet and call it a day. It was to the point, but lazy. This year’s banners have taken another step forward. Now they aren’t just trash-talking bedsheets banners, they’re memes.

The video game that has taken control of college campuses across the country is the inspiration for many.
Drake has became an indelible part of Kentucky basketball after his Big Blue Madness air ball. Naturally, his No. 1 song would become the muse for many.
Not every sign has to have a theme. It could just be good ole-fashioned trash talk.
If you have more great signs you’d like to see on the site, Tweet them to me @RoushKSR.
