Robert Griffin III is an unabashed supporter of Baylor University, the quarterback's alma mater. In the photo here he is celebrating a win by the Baylor women's basketball team with star Brittney Griner. And he undoubtedly looked forward to the Lady Bears, led by Griner, successfully defending their national championship.
But Griner and company went down in the Sweet 16 to Louisville. Griner did not have her best game and that was due in part to the physical defensive tactics the Cardinals used against her. In the opinion of RG3 and many others, the tactics crossed the line from physical play to illegal play. He let his feelings be known in an epic Twitter rant:
