Someone Leaked The March Madness Bracket As It Was Being Revealed
As the stretched-out Selection Show proceeded on CBS, one Twitter user revealed who was headed to the Big Dance before the TV broadcast did.By Carter Woodiel | March 13, 2016
One of the most anticipated announcements in sports television was derailed Sunday evening when a photo of the full March Madness bracket was leaked on Twitter during the Selection Show.
The bracket appeared as the NCAA tournament field was being announced on CBS, and though people were skeptical at first, it soon proved to be legit.
The leak was probably aided by a change in the show's format. In previous years, the show was an hour long, with the bracket reveal finishing up in a tidy 30 minutes. This year, the show was stretched to two hours.
