Well, um, welcome to the least exciting past week ever except for Mark Gottfried being fired. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t get a little fuzzy-eyed during his post-game press conference after losing to Notre Dame when he poured his heart out about how much he loved his players. Tears. Apologies for the short, random Twitter Roundup but it has some gold in Kyrie and his flat-Earth theory.
On Mark Gottfried Being Fired: The Debster finally cut the cord, and all of Wolfpack Nation got what it wanted. Personally, I feel bad for Gott. I hate seeing a coach’s livelihood affected.

Gottfried helped give CJ Williams an NCAA Tournament. And he gave us all TJ Warren.

UNC vs. UVA: Come on Virginia, you couldn’t even score 50 points. FIFTY?! Congrats on scoring the second least amount of points in the Dean Dome ever. I guess that counts for something?
Going to be a long bus ride back to Charlottesville since the Cavaliers can’t go over 50.

Virginia has 5 turnovers in the first half, about as many as their football team would have in a half okay I'm sorry

You know things are not going well if Tony Bennett is dropping those four letter words.

Tony Bennett saw an entertaining basketball play and immediately had to call time to restrain his players from trying that

Marcus Paige watched highlights. When his Villanova shot gets shown, smile disappears and he shakes his head. #UNC

On The Day Without Immigrants Protest: All over, immigrants walked out on jobs and services to show what life would be like without their presence in response to Donald Trump’s attempt to ban them.
Illegals take off work for "Day Without Immigrants" protest and return to find they've been fired.

Trump's rally in Florida Saturday had 9,000 people.
The "Day without Immigrants" rally in Milwaukee this week had 20,000.

It looks like a bunch of people that participated in "a day without immigrants" are now enjoying "a few weeks of 'are yall hiring?'"

On Kyrie Irving Thinking the Earth is Flat: Duke-educated (kinda). Out here thinking the Earth is flat. SMH. I think he’s trolling. I hope he’s trolling. Idk. Idk. Idk.

Y'all knew Kyrie Irving wasn't good at science … remember how he messed up Duke's chemistry by coming back at the end of the year?

This All-Star Saturday was so bad that the highlight of the day was Kyrie Irving admitting he thinks the earth is flat

Hard to fault Kyrie Irving for lack of science knowledge since this is all they taught him at Duke. pic.twitter.com/tOoKXBYX8L
