Rutgers will not be playing in the NCAA Tournament after being announced as one of the First Four Out along with Oklahoma State, North Carolina and Clemson. Its fans were not too pleased with the decision, to say the least.

This is something that Rutgers fans have felt before. The baseball team was also left out of the NCAA Tournament as one of the First Four Out as well. The Scarlet Knights’ baseball team finished the 2022 season with a 44-15 record.

The Rutgers men’s basketball team lost in the quarterfinal round of the B1G Tournament to Purdue, ending the year at 19-14. The Scarlet Knights lost 3 of their last 4 games of the regular season heading into the B1G Tournament.

The B1G received 8 bids to play in the NCAA Tournament. Purdue, Iowa, Michigan State, Penn State, Illinois, Northwestern, Indiana and Maryland are all participating in March Madness. The Boilermakers were picked as the top seed in the East Region. Mississippi State, Pitt, Nevada and Arizona State were picked as the Last Four In.

Rutgers fans went to social media to vent their frustrations after the news came out. Some fans debated why Nevada made it into the tournament over Rutgers. A lot of different cases were made as to why the Scarlet Knights were not chosen compared to other teams.

Here are the reactions to Rutgers’ snub from the NCAA Tournament:
