The Cincinnati Bearcats kick off their 2014 NCAA Tournament with a second-round match up against Harvard, and Bearcats head coach Mick Cronin is doing everything in his power to make sure his fans are able to watch the game.

In a hilarious note that was sent to fans, Cronin provided a doctor’s excuse that diagnosed fans with a (w)hooping cough. Mick Cronin, B.D. also requested additional time in case the game ended up heading in to overtime.

Check it out below:

Hopefully someone was actually courageous enough to try to use the excuse, because we know that a number of people will be staying home from work in order to catch the first weekend of March Madness.
