No stranger to controversy, Brownback was taking plenty of heat on social media Sunday night after showing up in a victorious Wichita State locker room wearing a "Kings of Kansas" T-shirt in Shockers colors.

The only problem? Brownback attended school at Wichita's top two instate rivals. He has a law degree from Kansas (which fell to Wichita State 78-65 in the much-anticipated NCAA tournament matchup) and a undergrad degree from Kansas State.

He also spent the game at Omaha's CenturyLink Center — where he was booed after being shown on the big screen — wearing a decidedly non-partisan T-shirt that featured both teams.

Knowing how politicians work, there has to be a crimson-and-blue "Kings of Kansas" T-shirt sitting at the bottom of a garbage can somewhere in Omaha, right?

Brownback's boosterism was roundly roasted on social media where SB Nation declared him an even bigger bandwagon fan than the notoriously opportunistic Drake.
