Take a quick glance at the newly released March Madness NCAA bracket t-shirt and you probably won’t notice anything strange. But take a closer look, preferebely in the East section.

Notice anything that shouldn’t be there? Say like a logo for Georgetown University?

The Hoyas of course aren’t participating in the NCAA Tournament after a down season which has them partaking in the NIT, but George Washington University is. So where is their logo? It’s missing.

It seems as if somebody made a pretty hefty mistake and swapped out the George Washington logo with the Georgetown logo which multiple fans spotted and sent the accidental printing to ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell who tweeted out the mistake shirt.

Now while this is likely nothing more than an ‘oops’ moment, it’s a pretty difficult one to justify given the differences in the logo.

Georgetown has a very distinct ‘G’ in gray coloring while George Washington has a ‘GW’ in a buck/tan coloring with a navy blue outline.

Hopefully production was halted quickly in the printing process.

    This would explain why all of a sudden these shirts have disappeared from online retailers. Was trying to buy one earlier today and noticed they were gone.
