Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt has been one of the biggest stars of March Madness as the team chaplain for Loyola of Chicago, but now there's some trash talk from another longtime fan heading into the Final Four of the 2018 NCAA men's tournament.      

Jalen Rose's grandmother, Mary Belle Hicks, wasn't willing to take it easy on the fourth No. 11 seed to ever reach this stage. In a video posted by Get Up, the 100-year-old Hicks said the Ramblers have had a "good ride, but it's over Saturday. Go Blue!":

Sister Jean, @jalenrose’s grandma said see you at the Final Four … 💯 https://t.co/vQwZkbMdHh

Rose played for Michigan from 1991-94, and the Wolverines are set to face Loyola-Chicago in the national semifinals at the Alamodome in San Antonio. 

The 98-year-old Sister Jean has become a national sensation during the Ramblers' run, even being the focal point of merchandising.

The result is some of the most unique bulletin-board material in recent memory.
