Kentucky star freshman Nerlens Noel suffered a horrendous knee injury during a game against Florida last week that ended his season with a torn ACL. Not only does Noel’s injury hinder Kentucky’s quest to return to the NCAA Tournament, it throws his NBA draft status in flux.

The Louisville Courier-Journal, however, went there.

6. Erin exacted revenge by drawing her own awesome cartoon.
