There have been few times in sports history where a team has made an analyst insert their foot in their mouth quite like VCU has done with Dick Vitale and Jay Bilas. Both ESPN analysts completely ripped the selection committee for even putting the Rams in the field of 68. While both were probably right and it can be easily argued that VCU had no right being in the tournament, that should not take away from what they have been able to do over the past couple weeks.
Now that they have defied all odds and reached the Final Four, VCU decided it would treat itself to a $2,000 banner to hang on its campus. Not just any banner, however. Check out the Dickie V Eat Crow Baby banner, courtesy of SI Hot Clicks:
Like it or not, VCU has a legitimate chance to reach the National Championship game despite losing to teams like Georgia State and Northeastern in the regular season. Their fans have been partying in the streets, the school has shelled out money for banners to rag on analysts, and the Rams faithful appear to be thoroughly enjoying the ride.Google+
