The 2018 NCAA Tournament has been one not only full of upsets, but blowout upsets. That continued on Sunday evening when No. 7 Texas A&M went into Charlotte and romped No. 2 North Carolina 86-65, officially ending UNC’s repeat bid.

Social media, as always, was all over this one. These are just some of the highlights.

With North Carolina getting curb stomped, it’s time for the mandatory #CryingJordan GIF
Texas A&M looked like a national title contender early, then they looked like a mediocre Juco team, and now they look like a national title contender once again

Texas A&M, unlike the NCAA, isn’t afraid to put UNC away.

Texas A&M did what the University of North Carolina wouldn’t do. Took the UNC players to school.

Makes sense that A&M blew out UNC like UMBC blew out Virginia, because A&M is the UMBC of Texas

This is just the second NCAA Tournament game, ever, that North Carolina has lost in the state of North Carolina. The last time was 1979, when both Duke and UNC lost in the NCAA Second Round and there was “parity” in college basketball.

Of course, Johnny Manziel — one of the most famous Aggies — also had his input.
With all that’s already happened in this tournament, we can’t wait to see what’s next.
