Sports Illustrated reporter Seth Davis was brought aboard by Turner and CBS to be one of the faces for the 2013 NCAA Tournament. Seen to be an expert in the field, his picks were given a ton of attention, and one of his more controversial choices was picking No. 13-seeded Montana over fourth-seeded Syracuse.
Now, we’re not going to say that there was absolutely no way this was going to happen (after all, No. 14 Harvard broke out the algorithms in upsetting No. 3 and popular pick New Mexico), but with the final score reading 81-34, this one was never really in doubt.
Thus, Mr. Davis was forced to sport some really — really — bright orange gear by ‘Cuse Nation. Of course, after the full slate of games had played itself out, this broadcast wasn’t on air until roughly 1:15 a.m. Eastern time.
But Seth, don’t worry, there’s YouTube.
You didn’t think we’d miss this, did you?
