Although Harvard was a surprise winner in its first game of the NCAA tournament, the Crimson's pep band didn't look as good as it played from the stands in Salt Lake City.

Lindsay Jones of USA Today noticed that the pep band unintentionally dressed just like the security guards at EnergySolutions Arena.

Jones' photos on Instagram back up her observation. Both the band and the security guards are wearing crimson-colored jackets, black pants and black ties.

This seems to be unintentional.

After all, the Crimson has no reason to mess with the security guards. This is the Harvard band we're talking about, not Stanford.

Normally one to impress fans and television viewers with his suits, broadcaster Craig Sager switched things up on Tuesday and instead wore an eye-catching tie.

USA Today's Nicole Auerbach took the accompanying photo in Dayton, Ohio, where the opening round of the NCAA tournament took place. As you can see, Sager's brilliant tie features small brackets. How fitting for March Madness.

Sager told USA Today that he had a specialized bracket tie made last year, and he liked it so much he wanted another one. But, of course, Sager couldn't simply wear a customized tie. He needed an entire outfit.

"It's total silk. It's just plain, looks like a piece of paper," Sager said. "I also have a shirt I bought that hopefully ties together the black and the white. I bought a new pocket square, too."

For now, Sager has decided not to write team names into the lines on his tie. But he said if his alma mater, Northwestern, ever gets invited to the tournament, he might have to change up his outfit.

"There's a chance I could (write) teams in, but I don't think I'm going to do that until Northwestern finally gets invited," Sager said. "I'll wear a purple one then."

There is a legend that former Philadelphia 76ers star Allen Iverson didn't like carrying around luggage on road trips, so he would buy a new suit in each city his team visited.

As you can imagine, that practice got very expensive and was perhaps a sad harbinger of Iverson's current money woes.

It turns out that another superstar point guard also likes to travel light, but he at least keeps his expenses to a minimum.

In an interview with GQ, Kyrie Irving said that instead of doing laundry, before each road trip he'll simply buy new underwear. Sounds like a waste, but for a guy making about $5.4 million this year, his underwear is probably the least of his worries.

Perhaps Irving was inspired by George Costanza:
