Before Friday, a No. 16 seed had never beaten a No. 1 seed, much less a No. 1 overall seed. They were 0-135. But the University of Maryland-Baltimore County -- yes, the little-known UMBC Retrievers -- proved even the longest of odds aren't totally insurmountable.

I’m a bit suspicious about this. Who had money on UMBC?
And that’s the sound of 10 million brackets shattering.
I hope Obamao had Virginia to win on his bracket.
UVA was also the victim of what’s considered the biggest upset in college basketball history, in 1982, against Chaminade.
Something good coming out of Baltimore. Maybe they can use it to turn the atmosphere of Baltimore positive.
UVA is a liberal cesspool. I’m thrilled to see the snobby Charlottesville trash get their comeuppance.
Warren buffet is breathing easier as he will not have to pay out one million dollars for his bracket challenge
Virginia lost the best sixth man in the country to injury right before the tournament. Perhaps they were using this sure win game to try to figure out how they would play without him. Virginia did not look like they had prepared for this game at all.
And my bracket blew up into a million pieces... aaaargh!
I had them in the final.
At least we got the Maui tournament in the fall from that. Nothing but a truckload of shame for UVA will come of this.
But so did most other people so you still have a shot.
Those kind of payouts are insured. Same cost either way.
I think his luck will not last.
Was considered the biggest upset
I didnt know that.
I’m reminded of the time my youngest filled out his first bracket. He thought higher numbers were better and picked accordingly.
By 20 points no less
They killed em
We’re up by more than 13 for most of second half
Las Vegas had them at 20-1 for tonight’s game. There was a report that one online bettor put down $800 on UMBC and got back $16,000!
