About two hours after his story posted, USA Today’s Chris Chase tweeted to Kentucky fans on Tuesday.
Chase’s tweet was in reference to his story about Kansas’ 11 straight Big 12 conference titles being bigger than Kentucky’s perfect record.
“How could Kansas’ regular season possibly be more impressive than Kentucky’s?” Chase wrote. “You’re not thinking big picture.”

He went on to explain his point in three parts.
Chase also added this: “However: If, in 33 days, Kentucky has finished its season with a national championship and 40-0 record, then we have a different story on our hands. But for now: KU > UK.”
Needless to say, this didn’t go over well with Kentucky fans, leading to Chase’s tweet.
