Northwestern beat Indiana, meaning a 4 game Big Ten winning streak, meaning the longest conference winning streak in more than 4 decades, meaning, of course, Joe Lunardi should be looking to add some purple into his next bracketology. Naturally, we at Inside NU were excited, and decided to voice our unfiltered optimism.

We were firmly unprepared for what followed.
"@insidenu: WE WANT KENTUCKY" NO YOU DEFINITELY DON'T, NORTHWESTERN.— Big Blue Nation (@BigBlue9ation) February 26, 2015
It started off as mere joking between fanbases. But then twitter happened.
We had, of course, the hyperbolic kind of tweets that would've made sense had this been January 1st, 2000.
"@insidenu: WE WANT KENTUCKY" dumbest tweet of the century— ❌hi❌ hater (@BuckeyeTrash) February 26, 2015
The obligatory emoji spamming.

And more fun stuff from fans who probably need to realize that less than 100 percent of the stuff tweeted is, surprisingly, not meant to be taken seriously.
"@insidenu: WE WANT KENTUCKY"/Awfully cute tweet from Northwestern. Go celebrate your win over a pathetic IU team.— Michael Clark (@UKDad21) February 26, 2015
"@insidenu: WE WANT KENTUCKY" You're 14-14. Your team isn't even good enough to make fun of. You don't want Kentucky.— Things #BBN Likes (@ThingsBBNLikes) February 26, 2015
<3 you #BBN— Inside NU (@insidenu) February 26, 2015
Some Louisville fans got a kick out of all this too...
But, seriously. We do want Kentucky. Or maybe...
