PSA: the selection show wil have a brand new format this year. A little heads up because there are some major changes that will certainly make some grumble
- Will air on TBS instead of CBS. Sorry, they only want those paying $100+ a month for cable/satellite to see this now live.
- ALL 68 qualified teams will be announced within the first 15 minutes. But not matchups. So no suspense if you're a bubble team. If you're a fan of said team that got left out, you can turn your TV off almost immediately.
- Once teams are announced, you'll have to wait for matchups and when/where the teams will play. Supposedly to be dished out within 50 min.
- It'll move back to a 2 hour show rather than the recent 90 min program.
- Latter half of program will be analysis of the matchups
Personally, most upset with the change from CBS to TBS. But I guess that gives me 2 hours of my life back since I don't have cable.
edit: Also mentioned in the article that I forgot to point out.... it is not clear when the seeds will be announced. Which most of us want to know regarding MSU/UM and playing in Detroit.
edit2: "ALL 68 teams will be announced at once" in second bullet changed to be more accurate
