University of Arizona Accidentally Leaks Elite Eight Shirts

It seems the University of Arizona jumped the gun Tuesday by selling commemorative Elite Eight T-shirts on their bookstore's website.

The only problem is the No. 1-seeded Wildcats play the No. 4-seeded San Diego State Aztecs on Thursday—a Sweet 16 matchup that determines who will actually be making the trip to the Elite Eight.

Here's what the full page looked like while it was up:

Since the goof, the Arizona bookstore has taken down the page and the university posted this message:

The University of Arizona BookStores experienced an unintentional leak of a hidden web page that was never meant for public release. This page included designs created in preparation for March Madness, a common practice for most retailers. It was never for sale. The mistake does not reflect any assumptions about tournament outcomes and the UA BookStores sincerely regrets the error.

If the Aztecs were in need of any bulletin board material, they got some Tuesday.
