Mike Francesa would probably like a mulligan on his Virginia comments in late February, when the popular sports talk show host said the Cavaliers "will never win a championship." 

Virginia won its first national title in program history with an 85-77 win over Texas Tech on Monday night. 

"I think [Virginia] is very defendable," Francesa said in February. "I don't like them offensively at all. They'll never win a championship with this team."

Francesa did own up to his comments on Monday night, hopping on Twitter to congratulate the Cavaliers. 

"Great, great championship as I watch Bennett slap Virginia on national champion, so kudos to him," Francesa said.
