Twenty-four players on the Falcons roster will get to watch their alma mater hit the court during March Madness this year. Take a look back at these players' college years.
NCAA March Madness never fails. Another week of excitement and drama continued over the last three days during the Sweet 16 and later the Elite 8 on Saturday. Throughout the entire tournament, Falcons players have offered their tweeted opinions.
Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was truly impressed by UAB's run in the tournament. The former UAB star offered encouragement and motivation for the No. 14 seed Blazers, who upset No. 3 Iowa State before eventually falling to No. 11 UCLA in the third round.
Falcons quarterback T.J. Yates has been proudly tweeting all tournament long about his former alum, the No. 4 seed North Carolina Tar Heels, who fell to the No. 1 seed Wisconsin Badgers in the Sweet 16, 79-72.
The 2015 NCAA Women's March Madness Basketball Tournament, including No. 1 seed South Carolina's play, had Falcons fullback Patrick DiMarco representing his former alum after it advanced to the Elite 8.
New Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn admitted he hadn't spent any time watching Wisconsin in this year's tournament, but when he did, the former Iowa Hawkeyes star praised the play of the Final Four-bound Badgers.
Saturday's 68-66 win by No. 1 seed Kentucky over No. 3 seed Notre Dame was one of the tournament's best games so far. The Irish missed a potential game-winning shot in the final seconds, falling to the undefeated Wildcats. Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme, a proud Kentucky alum, offered analysis of his school's big win.
