Cincinnati’s Collapse In NCAA Tournament Reminds Us Of Greatest BYU Tweet Ever
Cincinnati took a major “L” on Sunday in the Big Dance, but it might not be worse than a Bearcat Gridder against BYU in 2015
BYU is jacked up on Mountain Dew baby!
The Cincinnati Bearcat athletic department is mourning right now because they laid one of the biggest eggs we’ve ever seen in the NCAA Tournament. The Bearcats gave up a 22-point lead in the second half before ultimately falling to No. 7-seed Nevada from the Mountain West Conference. The Bearcats, out of the American Athletic Conference, were the No. 2 seed.
First off, props to Nevada even though it’s only the second-biggest comeback in NCAA Tournament history behind, yeah, you guessed it…BYU in 2012 against Iona in the First Four. 25-point comeback. So, WCC > MWC? I wouldn’t go that far, but hey, BYU and the WCC need anything they can to convince the Zags to stay.
Anyways, Cincinnati took a major L losing that game to Nevada on Sunday, but it still might not be the biggest “L” a Bearcat has taken over the years. The biggest still goes to 2015 Cincinnati Bearcat football player Max Morrison for 1) getting lit up and 2) accusing Kai Nacua of never tasting Mountain Dew.
Man, Kobra Kai laid that hit stick, didn’t he? Violent hit that left Max Morrison taking a bigger “L” than his basketball counterparts yesterday.
I’d be a terrible person if I didn’t give an honorable mention goes to former Cincinnati Bearcat Tommy Tuberville for telling Bearcat fans after an embarrassing loss to BYU to “get a JOB!”
My goodness, can BYU just join the AAC already? With moments like this, the Bearcats and Cougars could be a cat rivalry in no time in the #POW6RFULAAC.
Bearcat Cagers, take solace that you didn’t bring the biggest shame to your athletic department like these guys did when they took on BYU.
