Dayton Daily News takes shot at Ohio State after upset win in NCAA tournament (PHOTO)

Mar 21, 2014, 9:49 AM EDT


Dayton, the No. 11 seed in the South Region, busted the majority of the nation’s brackets after the first game of the 2014 NCAA Tournament, sending in-state foe Ohio State back home.

Vee Sanford took Aaron Craft off the dribble, banking in the game-winning bucket with 11 seconds left. Craft, who came up with a few clutch, late-game shots, missed on the final attempt of his collegiate career as the Flyers upset the Buckeyes, 60-59.

After defeating The Ohio State University, the Dayton Daily News came up with this amazing headline on the front page of Friday’s newspaper.

    Colombus is the most overrated city.

      Right… that must be why it keeps growing while last-century cities like Dayton have been hollowed out by the exodus of business over the years. I’m sure the few thousand people who still get the print edition of the DDN really enjoyed the jab.

      (and ‘Colombus’, really? lol)

    Pretty sure everyone I knew picked this upset… A good team from a very good league beating the big boy from up the road who just so happens to be having a mediocre year.

    Not a shocking upset. Enjoy it while it lasts Dayton.

    Bye Ohio Snake!

    Just for the unknowing, folks from OSU always use “The” when referring to their school. Of course, it is always in an arrogant way, too.
