Crying Northwestern kid is the viral fan of this NCAA tournament

Northwestern is trying to come back after being down big against Gonzaga, and one Wildcats fan is quite exasperated.

Down 63-52 after falling way behind in the first half, Barret Benson was called for a flagrant foul for a high elbow on a screen.

After the call, a young Northwestern fan absolutely lost his mind.

The game went to a commercial break, came back, and yup...still losing his mind.

As you can imagine, this kid is all the rage on Twitter right now.

CBS knows exactly where he is too, so expect to see plenty of him down the stretch as Northwestern's chances of a crazy comeback continue to yo-yo.

Twitter reactions to the crying Northwestern fan:
