Aaron Craft's exit, Obama's shoutout and more social media from the opening rounds

Capture

h/T @WorldOfIssac

Welcome to the 2014 NCAA tournament. Only the meme above can capture it all.

Aaron Craft

I am not a mean person (I'm also not a Photoshop wiz). But this was very mean, despite being funny.

Mark Gottfried

N.C. State had it locked up. T.J. Warren was more or less rolling and the Billikens couldn't keep up. But some horrific free throw shooting and what appeared to be apathetic coaching doomed the Wolfpack to the cruelest of NCAA tournament losses.

Don't think we weren't watching, Mark.

Duke Loses to Mercer

Mercer's time in the limelight lasted about 48 hours, but the following dance (and America's glee with a Blue Devils loss) made the Bears memorable.

Dayton President and the President

Congrats to Dayton, a basketball-first school, for reaching the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1984. Your school president hung out with you over the weekend, and our nation's President even gave you props for the pair of big victories. What a weekend!

Stanford Band

The Stanford band was accused of smuggling in hard alcohol to the Cardinal's Sunday game against Kansas. It was soon reported that that accusation was erroneous, but I'm wondering if they forgot to check out this guy.

Is The Stanford Band Smuggling Booze In Tubas?

Wichita State vs. Kentucky

The game of the weekend. Probably the game of the year. Arguably one of the best NCAA tournament games of the past 10 years. There were so many jaw-dropping, breath-taking, "no way" yelling moments from the Shockers thriller with the Wildcats that we all ran out of ways to say we were watching something incredible.
