Kentucky fans were understandably upset after the Wildcats’ dramatic loss to North Carolina in the Elite Eight. While freshman guard De’Aaron Fox dealt with his emotions in a healthy way, fans gathered in Lexington didn’t handle the defeat so well.
The Lexington Herald-Leader exhaustively documented the aftermath, which was basically just a bunch of college kids burning stuff. What follows is a list of items set ablaze by idiots on the street, or at least a partial list. Surely some arson occurred away from the Herald-Leader’s watchful eye. (Be warned that most of the videos contain the same profane chant about the Tar Heels.)

A whole bunch of random crap
They're piling things in the road now. Chant is "bring out the couch." pic.twitter.com/JLnIH4FYVD— HLpublicsafety (@HLpublicsafety) March 26, 2017

The traditional couch
The fires don’t just break out when Kentucky loses, either. Fans set stuff aflame after the Wildcats’ win over UCLA, too.
