College basketball fans eager to learn whether their favorite teams made the 2010 NCAA tournament didn't have to wait for CBS to unveil the bracket, according to Yahoo Sports.



Someone on a Maryland-themed message board revealed key details before the selection show came on the air that year.

About 45 minutes before CBS host Greg Gumbel announced to viewers that Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse and Duke had each earned No. 1 seeds, an anonymous poster known only as "goterps04" had already confirmed it. The poster also disclosed who the four No. 2 seeds were, which bubble teams had made or missed the cut and every detail of Maryland's draw, from its site, to its seed, to its first- and second-round opponents.
