This story is no bull.

One of VCU’s biggest critics prior to the Rams’ magical Final 4 run, Dick Vitale, recently visited the Fort Worth Stockyards to promote the Allstate March Mayhem Challenge. There, the former coach and Hall of Fame broadcaster went head-to-head in a live bracket challenge pick’em with a one-ton Texas Longhorn (livestock, not athlete) named Joel.

Joel proved to leave his Longhorn bias at the door by picking Texas to lose immediately, but Ram fans will be happy to hear the the bovine Nostradamus picked VCU to win this year’s national championship after defeating Kansas once again in the Elite 8, followed by UConn in the Final 4 and mega Cinderella, 13-seed Manhattan, in the Championship game.

Last year Vitale narrowly defeated the prognosticating dolphins of the Georgia Aquarium, but here’s to hoping our 1,795-pound friend, Joel, hit a bulls-eye with this year’s picks.
