Video: UNC's Mascot Got Sucker-Punched Seconds After Title Game Loss

If you're a North Carolina fan, you likely woke up Tuesday morning with a pit in your stomach after watching the Tar Heels lose at the buzzer in the national title game. If you're the North Carolina mascot, you might have two reasons for pain.

In the below video, UNC's mascot, Rameses, can be seen on the left side of the screen viewing the final play of the game - Kris Jenkins' buzzer-beater. Right after the play, the mascot gets sucker-punched by someone - it's hard to tell who - before falling to the ground. He's visibly upset afterwards. Check it out:

It'll be interesting to see if more comes out about this. It's a very strange situation.
