UNC fan petitioning to overturn Villanova title win

A college basketball fan is attempting to rain on Villanova's parade.

Disappointed North Carolina fan Michael Kline has posted a change.org petition in an attempt to overturn the Wildcats' victory against the Tar Heels in Monday's NCAA title game.

As of Friday afternoon, more than 3,000 people have supported the cause.

The petition reads:

"This game was poorly officiated from the tip off to the end. It was a one sided called game all the way through. The officials called fouls against UNC that should have not been called and never called Villanova for the fouls they committed. The officials never called Villanova for multiple travel violations either. Also I want a complete investigation into the officials as it was them that decided the game not who played better."

Obviously, the game result will not be reversed, but the petition is a welcome distraction from "Crying Michael Jordan."
