It was a rather tame first day of the college basketball super-buffet that is NCAA Tournament’s first day. Well, until the Harvard Crimson broke brackets everywhere and everyone pretended to be a Harvard fan on Twitter for 15 minutes. And then ESPN slobbered all over the Ivy-Leaguers making it even worse. However, the college hoops Christmas gave us this:
The Colorado State superfan, Ram Man, Ram Boy, Ram fan or whatever he’s called. See image below, click for larger view.
So there’s that. This guy really likes his Colorado State basketball. And when the TBS cameras caught him, he became a Twitter/internet superstar among sports geeks. Usually those #8 versus #9 games are the best of the tourney’s first round. You can flip a coin to see who wins.

The now-famous, soon-to-be-unfamous Colorado State Rams fan sums up the Louisville game in one photo. Oh yeah, and a GIF, of course.
I don’t think anyone is necessarily putting Louisville on upset alert for Saturday’s game against Colorado State, but the Cardinals will definitely be put to the test. The Rams looked more than impressive last night in their 84-72 win over Missouri. Here is a closer look at Colorado State’s overall resume.
Overall record: 25-8
Conference record: 11-5
Later today, the Colorado State men's basketball team will face the Louisville Cardinals in the round of 32 at the NCAA men's basketball tournament at approximately at 5:15 est/2:15 pst.
In the Rams first game of the tournament against the Missouri Tigers, cameras spotted this young Colorado State fan wearing a ram costume in the crowd:

Didn’t have Harvard beating New Mexico? Had New Mexico making the Elite 8? Followed the experts at ESPN and picked Oklahoma State over Oregon? Didn’t have Cal over UNLV? Throw away your bracket.
Rip up your bracket.
