You didn't pick No. 16 seed UMBC to upset No. 1 seed Virginia in your NCAA Tournament bracket, did you?

Almost surely not.

Lane Kiffin claims he did, though. The FAU head coach's NCAA Tournament bracket is going viral.

The head coach tweeted out a photo of his bracket on Friday night after the historic upset.

Here's the thing about this bracket: Kiffin clearly filled it out after the games started, right? Why else would a couple of the teams be filled in in typed-out form and the others written in via pen?
