However, CBSís producers may have been unable to spare themselves from some inadvertent foreshadowing. In the opening shot of the studio, before a single team was named, banners of various teams could be seen lining the set above the announcersí desk. The four banners at the center of the tableau belonged to Villanova, Gonzaga, Kansas and U.N.C. ó the four No. 1s.

More from The NYT.


This year’s selection show on CBS, which broadcasts the tournament along with Turner stations, went off without a hitch, at least compared with last year’s, during which an anonymous leaker posted the full bracket on Twitter after only half had formally been unveiled.

I made a comment to my wife about that and then immediately saw someone post on twitter about it.

Villanova, Kansas, UNC, and Gonzaga were also the projected #1 seeds before the selection show by many. I vote coincidence.

Those four teams had been listed as the most likely #1 seeds for a week or more so it's not surprising they would have them up. I noticed it but didn't think much about it.

Lappas is a moron. Cannot stand him. Sounds like he's drooling when he's speaking. A team with 8 losses that finished 4th in its league (??) deserves a one over Gonzaga?? Like Lavin, he also said a few weeks ago that last year's GU team was better than this one.

CBS had at least 16 banners up around the studio going left to right. GU, Villanova, Kansas and North Carolina happened to be right behind them.

New York Times making something out of nothing again.

Those banners were up yesterday too (before the seeds were picked). Been up all season, but moved around. I assume based on rank.
