Loyola Chicago could very well be 20 minutes from finding itself playing in the National Championship Game on Monday. The Ramblers were up 29-22 at halftime against Michigan in Saturday’s Final Four game.

Here’s how the Twitter world reacted to Loyola’s brilliant first half performance against the Wolverines on Saturday.
I'm running out of patience here. Sister Jean needs to get T'd up.
