Okay it's March Madness, so here goes:

In Deut. 8:12, Moshe Rabbenu tells the Jews:

פֶּן-תֹּאכַל, וְשָׂבָעְתָּ

Consume Penn, and you shall be satisfied.

Clearly they weren't rooting for the University of Pennsylvania; so which college team did they like?


This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.

    @JoelK The trop would indicate the first two words go together. But this brings to mind "Let's Eat Grandma!" vs. "Let's Eat, Grandma!" – Shalom Mar 20 '19 at 9:50

As would be expected for March Madness, it is inappropriate to choose a particular team, rather, we must eliminate all of the teams until only one is left, and then we will know which Moshe cheered for. Therefore, I will begin:

Onkelos writes (Bamidbar 14:16):

מִדְּלֵית יוּכְלָא קֳדָם יְיָ

There is no UCLA in front of G-d.

Which means that UCLA was also off limits, as Hashem didn't have them in his bracket...
