George Washington makes the tourney, gets bumped off the T-shirt

George Washington Colonials get mixed up with Georgetown Hoyas on NCAA tournament T-shirt

Can you spot the logo error here? Hint: It's near the bottom right.

George Washington made the NCAA tournament, but apparently the school was on the wrong side of the bubble when it came time for the NCAA to release its 2014 Big Dance T-shirt.

Unfortunately for Colonials fans, someone apparently got the team mixed up with a very different -- yet similarly named -- basketball squad in the D.C. area. Can you spot the error in the photo above? If not, scroll down.

Yep, that's a Georgetown Hoyas "G" logo in the spot where the George Washington Colonials' "GW" logo should be.

Here's the logo that SHOULD be there.

To be fair, George Washington and Georgetown are in relatively close proximity to each other. And, yes, they do both have a "G" in their logos. And, yes, the Georgetown Hoyas are a traditional college hoops power. And, yes, historically they have been mainstays of the NCAA tournament.

But not this year. Surely the NCAA oughta be able to keep better track of stuff like this.
