Twitter Goes Insane Over UMBC Upset Over UVA: ‘University of My Bracket’s Crushed’
March Madness had a pretty mad start with the biggest upset in NCAA history.
The University of Virginia, who was the #1 seed in in the NCAA Tournament, was beaten by the University of Maryland Baltimore County, the #16 seed, finishing 74-54.
And Twitter went absolutely nuts.

The 16 seed, (Golden) Retrievers thrash 1 seed Virginia. First time in history. I can’t help but think that Air Bud had his hand in this somehow. #UMBC

The reason why Virginia lost is because Trump supported them and did a rally before the game.#UMBC
