Procrastinators Are Getting Screwed, CBS Sports March Madness Brackets Are Down

If your bracket pool is being hosted on CBS Sports and you waited till the last minute, you might have to wait till next year. The site crashed after being flooded with a ton of traffic from procrastinating college basketball enthusiasts. The first game tipped off at 12:15 P.M. ET today with (5) Notre Dame taking on (12) Princeton, and if your bracket wasn’t submitted by 12:00 P.M. ET, you are shit out of luck for the entire tournament.

As of 12:25 P.M. ET, this is what I see when I try to access my March Madness bracket on CBS.


Not good. Not good at all. People are obviously furious at CBS for dropping the ball like this, and they are roasting them repeatedly on Twitter. Here are some of my personal favorites.

I am so glad that I didn’t procrastinate for the first time in my life. Gonzaga over Iowa State in the championship game. You heard it here first!
