We have a category here at LBS we like to call “screw ups,” and it’s a place we file anything from headline mistakes to broadcasting blunders. As you could imagine, it’s a category no publisher or broadcaster ever wants to find himself in. But Former Lions GM Matt Millen is such a walking disaster the guy could probably fill up his own category. The man who embarrassingly called Rod Marinelli (the head coach for Detroit’s 0-16 season) one of the best coaches he’s been around, put his lack of college football knowledge on display Tuesday when discussing Miami’s season-opening game against Maryland. Millen was asked who he thought would play quarterback for the Canes, and he mentioned Jarrett Lee. Yeah, the same Jarrett Lee who plays for LSU. What?!?! The video is mind-boggling:
How can a man who will be broadcasting a nationally televised game Monday not even know the starting quarterbacks on the roster? Better yet, how does this fool continue to get high profile jobs? It makes you wonder who’s more clueless: Millen, for his lack of preparation; or the people who keep hiring him.
It’s truly befuddling to see this guy actually touted as a credible expert. Where’s NBC Detroit to set the record straight when you need them?
