VCU Using Official T-Shirt to Celebrate Busting Your Bracket

Give VCU credit: they know how to capitalize on their big moment. From the beginning of the school's amazing NCAA Tournament run, the school's official site has been fully, boldly embracing the spotlight (witness again that "#WINNING" headline on the school's official athletics page after the Rams dominated Georgetown).
And with the school now in the Final Four, the school is having its most fun yet. For proof, head on over to the school's official athletics merchandise page - sandwiched in between a whole bunch of conventional Final-Four-related merchandise lies this gem:
Honestly, when we first saw this shirt, we thought it was something made on a lark by a graphic-design-inclined fan. We still would have enjoyed it, but it just wouldn't have had the same impact on us as it did knowing the school itself is selling it. Additionally, the crumpled piece of paper at the top (well, either a crumpled piece of paper or the Second Death Star) up top is a nice touch.
