The Kansas Jayhawks were blown out of the gym on Tuesday night courtesy of the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats. The 72-40 loss was the largest margin of defeat for Bill Self as Kansas head coach and he was looking for a way to drown his sorrows after the game. 

Self plopped down at the post-game press conference where he was set to face the media after the disappointing loss and he instantly broke the ice with some humor. 

After he took a sip from his water bottle, Self said, "I was hoping that was vodka."
