I can’t. I’m still struggling to process that not only did UMBC beat Virginia, they won by 20 friggin’ points. The Retrievers’ win earned a huge payday for the small-budget America East and free pizza for everyone. And here’s something bizarre about UMBC’s star player Jairus Lyles.

What the hell is UMBC?

That’s what non-diehard college fans were asking last night as they watched UMBC annihilate Virginia. And thanks to a killer Twitter performance by Zach Seidel, their social media man, their website crashed and people are furiously searching for anything and everything about UMBC.
