17 College Sports Fans Get Their Hearts Broken In Real Time

Cliff Alexander is a high school senior from Chicago. Despite his age, he stands at an extremely powerful 6 feet, 8 inches and 240 pounds — and is one of the nation’s top basketball recruits. On Friday, he announced his college destination live on ESPN.

The decision-making process took on a disproportionate and somewhat bizarre level of importance for fans. When the time arrived to announce his final choice on ESPN, Alexander cruelly fake-grabbed an Illinois hat before donning a Kansas cap to announce his intention to go to school out of state. The result is the priceless reaction video above.

The clip, featuring 17 Illinois students instantly morphing en masse from ecstasy to agony over Alexander’s bait-and-switch, has accrued nearly 800,000 views on YouTube since Friday at the time of writing. Much like this amazing baseball photo, each individual reaction tells a story and gives a candid glimpse inside the extreme passion of college sports fans.

Special shout-out goes to the guy in the back row who yells through the TV at Alexander: “What’s your problem?!”

Now for the other side of that reaction video, here’s Alexander’s Illinois fake-out:
