Karma bit CBS in the butt Sunday, as the full NCAA Tournament bracket supposedly leaked online, the same year the network decided to drag the selection show out to two hours.

Here is the supposed bracket if you feel like wanting to do anything other than wait a couple hours for CBS to do that:


We’ve been following since the start of the selection show, and as of halfway, the entire left side of the bracket is correct so far.

Some of the highlights of the two regions that have yet to be revealed: Xavier gets a No. 2 seed, Michigan State is in Virginia’s region, Syracuse gets in as a No. 10 seed, Michigan and Tulsa will square off in a First Four game.

It’s possible this bracket isn’t entirely right and we’ll all feel stupid soon, but it is halfway correct so far and given how boring CBS’ selection show has been, finding out if the rest of this bracket is correct will be way more exciting.

NOTE: The original account that posted the leaked bracket is apparently not on Twitter anymore so here is the official bracket.
