This Day in History
March 15, 44 BCE
Julius Caesar is stabbed to death on the floor of the Roman Senate by Brutus and a number of other co-conspirators. The exact motivation is unknown, but many historians have pointed to possible connections to Caesar’s March Madness bracket, having picked Athens U over the University of North Umbria. Brutus, being a UNU fan since getting his undergrad there, took exception. Beware the Ides of March indeed.
