Texas Tech Fans Are Blaming This Selfie From Ted Cruz For Their NCAA Championship Overtime Loss, and We Kind of See Why

It looks like Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is Texas Tech's bad luck charm.

Cruz tweeted a selfie yesterday from the NCAA championship game at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis and observed that Texas Tech held a 1-point lead with 35 seconds left in regulation.


"35 Seconds. ONE Point LEAD. GO RED RAIDERS!!! #1 Defense," he wrote.

But Cruz spoke too soon, and Texas Tech fans claimed he jinxed the game after the team was defeated in an 85-77 overtime victory by Virginia.

Cruz didn't address the roasting, but he did praise Texas Tech in a tweet afterward.

"A heartbreaking loss, but an AMAZING game," he wrote.

This isn't the first time Cruz has made (rather hilarious headlines) for being a jinx.

Last year, his #ClutchCity tweet during Game 7 of the Warriors/Rockets series last year was also roasted.

Fans said the tweet was the reason for Houston missing 27 straight attempts from 3-point range in defeat.

Poor Senator Cruz. He just can't win.
