UMBC made history back in the 2017-2018 season when they became the first ever 16 seed to upset a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. They did not make the tournament last year and have gotten off to a 7-12 start this year.
While they are not known typically for their athletics department, that did not stop them from taking shots at a couple NFL teams from the NFC North.
I don't know why they chose to throw shade at the Bears and Packers, although I understand the timing of the Packers tweet. The Bears tweet is curious.
And this isn't the first time they've burned the Bears either.
As the game went on during UMBC's upset of Virginia two years ago, their social media guy went to town online and you can see all that fun stuff here.
Again, not sure what has prompted them to take shots at a couple of NFC North teams but it's all in good fun right? That is, until they crack a joke at my team.
