Man. As if No. 16-seeded Robert Morris didn’t have enough on its plate facing Duke today. Now we have Colonials coach Andy Toole’s family pulling for the Blue Devils and not even trying to keep it a secret.

Yeah. That’ll help him pull the monumental upset. Nothing like having the support of those closest to you.

Toole explained the odd situation yesterday on Mad Dog Sports Radio.

“I’m trying to get my wife and my 2-year-old son to root for us. As of now, my 2-year-old is rooting for Duke,” Toole told Cohen and Babs.

“My wife is a giant Duke fan. Obviously during the season we travel a lot, and she’s a huge hoops fan — she watches a lot of hoops — and my 2-year-old will send me videos when I’m on the road, and the video will say ‘Tyus (Jones) is our guy.’ So last night after the game I said, ‘Ryan, who you rooting for: Robert Morris or Duke?’ He says Duke. He’s about to be two and a half, and Duke’s his squad.”

Toole is hopeful he can change his loved ones’ rooting interests by game time.

I’d advise them to stand their ground — if they want to be winners.

Sometimes you gotta chose head over heart.
