Far more than the vast majority of people that see this tweet will shake their heads in disbelief. Honestly, I don't blame them. It's completely disingenuous to publicly take pride in the accomplishments of your conference foes when all your team did was drag down their strength of schedule. I can definitely see why people would find it strange that a school that was easily the worst amongst their peers would celebrate those largely mediocre peers when they defied the entirety of their average seasons by somehow dominating college basketball's biggest stage. There is, however, one thing that can also be said about all those people that thought this was a tone deaf act of social media outreach...
They now remember that Rutgers is in the Big Ten. It an egregious example of self worth by association, but at least it came when that association was at it's apex. It may be thee most immoral of moral victories. That said, the entire ACC only had one more actual tournament win than Rutgers throughout Saturday and Sunday, and that's the type of close loss that the Scarlet Knights have no problem hanging their hat on!
