Fairleigh Dickinson’s explicit abbreviation sends the internet into a frenzy after March Madness upset
Fairleigh Dickinson became the second seed of 16 to knock out a seed Friday when she upset Purdue, 63-58.
It was the biggest upset in March Madness history, but if you followed several sports apps, you saw the school of New Jersey abbreviation:
“Very well. Dick.”

It was also a way to shorten the name on some betslips, so hopefully this player followed suit.
But naturally, the internet had a field day.
The Knights beat Purdue despite 21 points and 15 rebounds from the 7’4″, 300-pound Zach Edey, while the average height of FDU players is a foot shorter.
Obviously size didn’t matter in the match, but hey, you know where that takes us.
“Fair Dick, proving once and for all that size doesn’t matter,” HTV98 tweeted.

“Purdue couldn’t handle Fair Dick,” another user wrote.
Remember, the 15-seeded St. Peter Peacocks made it to the top 8 last year. Oral Roberts was knocked out in the first round this year, but the jokes are written there.
A fan says that was just a preview of what was to come.
“ORAL ROBERTS AND THE PEACOCKS WALK SO FAIR DICK CAN RUN,” @ryanramoneda tweeted.
It should also be noted that “Fair. Dick.” played Longwood earlier this year, who played in last year’s tournament. Longwood won, 99-83.
