As the March madness descended upon the college basketball world, one unexpected onlooker found himself completely taken aback. Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, a sports icon in his own right, was stunned by the chaos that ensued during a March Madness game between Virginia and Furman.

As the reigning Super Bowl champions, the players of the Kansas City Chiefs are currently relishing their off-season. Nonetheless, they remain closely attuned to the latest developments in the world of sports. 

Virginia-Furman March Madness mayhem

March Madness

March Madness is a sporting phenomenon that commands widespread attention. College basketball takes center stage in the tournament, ultimately determining the national champion.

Patrick Mahomes is well known for his outspokenness on matters relating to college basketball. He has frequently expressed his admiration for the Kansas Jayhawks and his alma mater, the Texas Tech Red Raiders. In a recent development, the 2022 NFL MVP expressed his views on the first-round matchup between the University of Virginia Cavaliers and the Furman Paladins.

The 13-seeded Paladins, regarded as underdogs, were able to execute a dramatic upset in the game’s closing moments. A well-timed steal and three-pointer in the final seconds sealed the fate of the 4th-seeded Cavaliers, leaving the sports world in shock. 

What did Patrick Mahomes say about the game?

Mahomes was so taken aback by the surprise outcome that he took to Twitter to voice his thoughts, tweeting, “Virginia what are we doing?!?!?”


The Paladins’ nail-biting 68-67 victory in the first round has propelled them to the tournament’s next stage. It may have caused some to revise their bracket predictions (perhaps even Patrick himself).

Although the reigning Super Bowl MVP shows his appreciation for the Red Raiders, he could not do the same for Virginia. However, the focus is now on the Virginia program and its repeated failures as favorites, with only one championship win to its name, which may have been aided by divine intervention. As the Cavaliers head home, the Paladins continue to play.

The March Madness game between Virginia and Furman left many fans, including Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, wondering about the direction of sports in America. Let’s wait and watch the twists and turns March Madness has to offer.
