Marcus Paige reminds everyone that UNC also lost in dramatic fashion at NRG Stadium ESPN logo
Monday, February 6, 2017

NRG Stadium has hosted a pair of thrilling championship games over the past 365 days, the most recent happening on Sunday night when the New England Patriots overcame a 25-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

But last April in Houston, the Villanova Wildcats defeated the North Carolina Tar Heels at the buzzer to win the national title. One former Tar Heel, Marcus Paige, still hasn't let go of his negative feelings toward the stadium.

Paige, now a member of the NBA D-League's Salt Lake City Stars, was a senior on the 2015-16 Tar Heels squad. Shortly after Paige published his tweet, Villanova senior Josh Hart issued what appears to be a response.

Although these two players have opposing sentiments toward NRG Stadium, they'd likely agree that this venue seems to be a place where anything can happen.
