Tuesday's "Elite Eight" matchup between the Aggie women and Lady Volunteers from Tennessee is causing mixed feelings for one local basketball fan.
Former Brazos County Justice-of-the-Peace Charles Ellis graduated from Tennessee and is a huge Volunteer fan. But having lived in Brazos County for close to 40 years, he's also a big Aggie fan.
So Ellis is showing his split loyalties by splitting his wardrobe. From the waist up, he's all Aggie with an A&M cap and shirt. From the waist down, he's a proud Volunteer with bright orange Tennessee wind pants and sneakers bearing the "Vols" logo.
"I'm hoping that one of the teams will win," Ellis said with a chuckle. "In this particular case, I am having a hard time having a favorite."
Ellis said he predicted the matchup the day the brackets were announced. Despite torn feelings for both teams, Ellis sees the positive side. "No matter who wins, I win," he said.
