Dick Vitale is known for a ton of different things. What he is most known for, though, is that his love for college basketball is only rivaled by his some of the time lunacy. Today, Selection Sunday, being no different.
After Vitale was asked about the Kentucky Wildcats getting a disappointing eight seed and the Louisville Cardinals shockingly falling to a four seed (in that same region nevertheless), good ole Dick Vitale had himself a mental breakdown.

“No way shape or form you can convince me!” Vitale exclaimed in both cases, using his trademark “Unbelievable!” in a completely different context. “I cannot believe that Louisville, based on an eye test, is a number four seed…Louisville definitely, definitely got a raw deal.”
Vitale went so insane, arms going crazy, it looked like he was about to drop the bionic elbow at any second. Sadly, he didn’t — as we all know that would have resulted in an immediate disqualification and no change of title (pro wrestling reference, kids).
He did have some very valid points. Vitale also loves basketball. So I guess that’s what we get when you cross paths (wrongly) with your crazy uncle, Dick.
