The Notre Dame Fighting Irish had an opportunity to upset the Texas Tech Red Raiders and they absolutely fell short of that. Of course, one fan wasn’t thrilled.
Memes are inevitable and often organic. They seem to happen whenever they want and it’s always on their time. Unfortunately for one Notre Dame basketball fan, he became a meme while his team was losing a game it probably could have won.
As Ben Heisler points out, at least one Notre Dame basketball fan has become a March Madness meme.
At least it’s not the stereotypical, patented surrender cobra? He can probably be given some credit for that and take some solace in that at least.
Notre Dame basketball fan becomes March Madness meme as Fighting Irish fall short against Texas Tech Red Raiders
With the win, the Red Raiders will be moving on in the NCAA Tournament. The Red Raiders have a huge opportunity to make it all the way to the Final Four, but they’ve got to continue avoiding upsets.
Of course, Notre Dame is done. While Texas Tech gets to continue its season, the Fighting Irish men’s basketball team won’t be playing any more basketball any time soon. Unfortunately for Notre Dame fans, that means their time showing up for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament is also coming to an end.
Unless they’d like to root for other teams, that is. Notre Dame fans could stick around to see how Texas Tech does if they’d like.
