I’m sure you were one of the people who tweeted about Spike Albrecht’s chances with the ladies improving after his 17-point first half against Louisville on Monday night.

I know I was one of those clowns. The problem is I never thought he’d aim for the parking lot by swinging for Kate Upton. Yes, that Kate Upton.

Albrecht outkicked his coverage when he tweeted a special thank you to Kate Upton on Tuesday. What his intentions were with the tweet are unknown.

I know why I would shout her out 12 hours removed from the greatest game of my life.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>@<a href="https://twitter.com/kateupton">kateupton</a> hey saw you at the game last night, thanks for coming out! Hope to see you again 😉</p>&mdash; spike albrecht (@SpikeAlbrecht) <a href="https://twitter.com/SpikeAlbrecht/status/321637347080937473">April 9, 2013</a></blockquote>

If Louisville coach Rick Pitino actually used his Twitter account, what scantily-clad gal would he message? Sydney Barlette, maybe?

As of 5:26 p.m., Albrecht’s tweet was retweeted 10,268 times and favorited 5,509 times.
