Michigan vs. Kansas reaction: .GIFs, tweets and more from the best game of March Madness

The final few minutes of Friday's Sweet 16 battle between Kansas and Michigan were nuts. Naturally, Twitter was on point with their instant reaction.

The Kansas Jayhawks essentially had the game won on Friday night. They led by 10 points with 2:30 left on the clock, and they had held a comfortable lead for much of the second half.

Then, a KU collapse and an epic comeback from the Michigan Wolverines came.

With Michigan down by three, All-American candidate Trey Burke hit a three-pointer from about 27 feet out to tie the game. Kansas came down but did not score, sending the game into overtime. In the extra session, Michigan pulled out the 87-85 victory to pull off one of the greater comebacks in recent NCAA Tournament history.

SB Nation's Kansas blog, Rock Chalk Talk, was not happy. Once the game was headed to overtime, they knew the end was near.

With the two teams meeting up in Cowboys Stadium, one certain quarterback was the butt of hundreds of Twitter jokes.

Even the rapper who has fallen off more than anyone the last five years got in on all the fun!

Let's all hug it out...
