Dick Vitale’s weirdest, wildest Selection Sunday moments

One of the great traditions of the revealing of the NCAA Tournament bracket is the annual bubble rant from Dick Vitale.  It seems that every year, Vitale becomes incredulous over one team (if not more) that have had their bubble popped.  It’s almost become a bit of a running joke to guess whose cause Vitale will champion each year.
