Oregon State’s basketball team was reportedly tossed from their hotel almost immediately following a loss to Houston.

The Beavers fell to the Cougars in the Elite 8 in a fun Monday night matchup, and a reasonable person would assume they probably went back to their hotel to decompress. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Not so fast, my friends! According to Nick Daschel, the team was told to pack up and get the hell out of Indiana “as soon as they got back to the hotel.”

The team caught a 1:15 a.m. flight back to Corvallis, which landed at 4 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Imagine losing in the Elite 8 in front of the entire country, getting on the bus to get back to the hotel to grab some food and relax and then being told to pack your bags.

Did Ari Gold deliver the message?

To call this a low blow would be an understatement. There’s just no excuse for it at all. The young men just had their hearts shattered with millions of people watching, it was the biggest game many of them ever played in and they were sent packing immediately.

It’s tough out here on these March Madness streets!
