Who's to blame for Duke's stunning loss to Mercer in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday?

Nobody's pointing the finger at Coach K.

Instead, everyone says this postseason failure is Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's fault.

Romo and the Cowboys have become well-known for their late-season collapses and playoff blunders. But apparently it's not just on the football field in the eyes of sports fans.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and Romo were sporting Duke gear at Cameron Indoor Stadium earlier this month while cheering on the Blue Devils.

For countless angry March Madness fans who just had their brackets busted, that's the reason for Duke's shocking early exit from the big dance.
