As you know, St. Bonaventure University is one of the top 5 enemies of Turtleboy Sports. We hate them and their poop colored uniforms with a passion, because we are a UMass homer blog. Our encounters with them are well documented.
I get drunk on Wednesdays because go bonnies. And umass blows. And turtle boy is a piece of shit. Also it may just because I'm an alcoholic

But going into Selection Sunday yesterday, we were looking forward to all the hate we were gonna get from Boner fans on Twitter after their name was inevitably called by the selection committee. After the first two quarters of the bracket were announced, there was no St. Bonaventure called yet. Turtleboy had accurately picked 33 of the 34 teams chosen. It was only a matter of time until the Boners were called. Then this happened:
Here's the leaked bracket that I mentioned. Who needs a 2 hour broadcast when you have Twitter pic.twitter.com/CymC1yuIUN

The bracket was leaked. This pissed me off because I freaking LOVE selection Sunday. I love the drama. I love finding out who the last 2 teams called are. I love watching bubble teams have their hearts broken. It’s fantastic theater. At first people didn’t think this was real. Goddamn TULSA got in. Tulsa SUCKS!!! They lost to crapbag Memphis twice. There’s no way a bracket that contained Tulsa could’ve possibly been legit.
The show came back on for the third regional bracket to be announced. North Carolina was announced as a 1 seed. No surprise. But when Florida Gulf Coast and Farleigh Dickinson were called as 16 seeds, and that exact same matchup was on the “leaked bracket,” it was clear that this leaked bracket was indeed legit. And guess who wasn’t on it?
Yup. The Boners. Look, Turtleboy HATES these people, but we hate corruption even more. And what happened to St. Bonaventure was INSANE. It’s by far the biggest snub in tournament history. They became the first team in NCAA history to win their conference’s regular season title (Atlantic 10) and have a top 30 RPI (29), and not make the dance. They’ve beaten St. Joseph’s twice, won at Dayton, and had a 16 game winning streak at one point in the season. We had them as a 10 seed. Most had them as a 9. They weren’t even really supposed to be on the bubble. They were a guarantee.
Syracuse, Vanderbilt, and especially Tulsa had no business getting in before them. Here’s what their resume looks like compared to Cuse:

Oh yea, and 59 bracketologists can’t be wrong either. Not one expert had Tulsa making this tournament.
You know who else didn’t think Tulsa would get in? Their leading scorere Shaquille Harrison, who tweeted this now deleted show of confidence earlier in the day:
Insane. Just insane. The only thing more corrupt than Mosaic, and the MIAA, and the McGovern Crime Family, is the NCAA. Seriously, how the hell does that bracket get “leaked” like that? How incompetent are they. As much as we dislike the Boners, they were gonna do some damage in this tournament. They have the most explosive backcourt in the country and it would surprise no one if they made a run to the Elite 8.
This boner fan put it best:
Even @TurtleBoySports said we should be in. That's like Trump saying we should let the refugees in.

Best. Analogy. Ever.
More than anything this was a slap in the face to the Atlantic 10. They let in four teams from the mediocre crapbag American Conference. Oh yea, and SMU wasn’t eligible, but they would’ve been the fifth. The Atlantic 10 is a million times better and they got three in. Coaches around the league voiced their displeasure:

Here’s my question, if you were St. Bonaventure would you even accept your #1 seed in the NIT? I mean, you just got donkey punched by the NCAA and now you’re gonna bend over and take it? Fuck that. I’d take the court in the first round game and let whoever they’re playing score 1,000 points. Make a gigantic spectacle of it. Because you people got boned harder than any boner has ever been boned before.
