America has sounded off and FINALLY, we are United about at least ONE thing-The New format introduced for the NCAA Tournament on CBS last night to go Alphabetical order was just bad, REALLY BAD! Unless you were hiding under a rock this week as teams clinched automatic berths by winning their conference tournament titles, the first 15 minutes of the show was potentially old news. But the exclusion of teams like the University of Southern Cal – which held a news conference shortly after its snub – did give bubble teams some closure early.
If you were hoping your team had secured a No. 1 seed, it wasn't until after the first commercial break that those were revealed. The four No. 1 seeds – Virginia, Villanova, Xavier and Kansas – weren't officially unveiled until shortly after the 68 teams were read off.
This new #SELECTIONSUNDAY show is painful. Shoulda just listed the bracket. This alphabetical stuff is nonsense.— bluestars07 (@bluestars07) March 11, 2018
TBS just ruined Selection Sunday. Selection Sunday. Something we all enjoyed together.— Jeff Rabjohns (@JeffRabjohns) March 11, 2018
Bidding for the rights to Selection Sunday then spitting up this phlegm is like qualifying for the pole in the Indy 500 then driving into the wall on turn 1 just for fun.
Please do not call 911 to complain about the format of the NCAA tournament selection show. We can’t do anything about it, no matter how bad it is.— Lawrence Police (@LawrenceKS_PD) March 11, 2018
