You'll have to forgive Robert Griffin III for his Twitter outburst Monday.

The Redskins phenom is a huge fan of college women's basketball, and an alum of Baylor University, whose No. 1-seeded Lady Bears were upset in a stunning -- and in the eyes of many Baylor fans, badly refereed -- defeat at the hands of Louisville Sunday.

Lady Bears star Brittney Griner is widely considered one of the greatest players in women's collegiate basketball history, and had led her team on a seemingly unstoppable 32-game win streak. But Louisville's aggressive play halted Griner's march two games shy of consecutive NCAA championships.

Griffin was incensed that Louisville's players were allowed to get so physical, accusing the Cardinals of playing dirty to keep Griner from scoring.
