McConnell team 'horrified' after Duke basketball footage included in ad

Big Blue Nation called a flagrant foul on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Tuesday. Days before the Kentucky Wildcats play the Louisville Cardinals in the NCAA basketball tournament, McConnell released an online video that showed brief footage of the Duke Blue Devils winning the national championship in 2010. The faux pas was first noticed by Joe Sonka, the news editor for LEO Weekly in Louisville, and it spread quickly among University of Kentucky fans, who have no trouble distinguishing the shades of blue worn by Kentucky and Duke.
