The very term "Cinderella Team" is a reminder of the cinematic aspect that's inherent to NCAA Tournament upstarts.

The homemade rap anthem for Florida Gulf Coast University's upstart basketball team is, finally, just what it is: proof that someone can sound less impressive over Tyga's "Rack City" beat than Tyga, that young women are doing gremlin-y Nicki Minaj imitations into dorm-room mics, and a reminder the YouTube has a lot of stuff on it. But, in its giddy and glorious jankiness and just-in-time opportunism, it's also just about perfect for the NCAA Tournament's greatest upstart team, and kind of perfect in general.

Getting to yes with the assaultive but oddly charming Energy Drink Tie-Dye uniforms that Adidas unveiled for the NCAA Tournament.
