It’s Selection Sunday, and people watching the TBS broadcast of the NCAA Tournament Selection Show are not happy with how things have turned out.
For one, the audio isn’t matching up with the video, creating some very interesting effects.
Oh no. The sound isn’t synced with the video

Is this the dubbed Chinese version?

As if that weren’t bad enough, people quickly realized around five minutes into the show that two hours is going to feel more like two days.
It was painful.

They have ruined Selection Sunday. It’s over. They’ve killed something we all loved

In particular, the way they announced the teams alphabetically really screwed with folks.

Alphabetically, killing suspense for the bubble teams. This is a disaster.

It was a big, hot mess, and people expressed their frustration in different ways.
The NCAA Tournament Selection Show was fantastic. A perfect product. That no longer is the case.

I never thought we’d find something that everyone on Twitter would agree upon, but here we are. This selection show blows.

And finally, we’ll just put this right here as a finale to this entire deal.
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.
