Greg Gumbel confuses Archie Miller for brother Sean in awkward interview (Video)

Archie Miller has quickly become a household name as Dayton charges through the NCAA Tournament. The 11-seeded Flyers have advanced to the Sweet 16 after stunning both Ohio State and Syracuse. They may have to win one more game before Greg Gumbel stops confusing Archie with his brother.

Sean Miller, Archie’s brother, coaches Arizona. Gumbel’s first mistake was calling Archie “Sean” multiple times. He then made the mistake of saying both Dayton and Arizona are in the Sweet 16.

“Sean, I sure hope you’re happier on the inside than you appear to be on the outside, because you and your brother are going to the Sweet 16,” Gumbel said.

The Wildcats will take on Gonzaga in the Round of 32 on Sunday evening, so they aren’t quite there yet. Archie obviously had no idea how to respond to the gibberish Gumbel had just thrown at him, and things got awkward in a hurry. Gumbel muttered something else before the network seemingly decided to cut the interview off.

Archie-Miller

It certainly wasn’t Greg’s brightest moment. I’d never confuse Archie for Sean because I’m kind of in love with Archie’s wife at the moment. Gumbel must not have taken a look at her yet.

Thad Matta, Archie Miller showed up to NCAA Tournament dressed the same (Video)

Thad-Matta-Archie-Miller-tieOhio State head coach Thad Matta and Dayton coach Archie Miller had to have known they were in for a close game on Thursday when they showed up wearing the same clothes. The coaches got together to chat for a bit before the opening tip, and Matta appeared to take note of the fact that he was wearing the exact same tie as Miller.

Miller inspected Matta’s tie before giving him a pat on the back. If the coaches wardrobe selections were that similar, their playbooks couldn’t have been that far off — right?

Apparently Miller had slightly more mojo in his tie, because the Flyers brought us the first big upset of the 2014 NCAA Tournament with a thrilling 60-59 win. Ohio State’s Shannon Scott helped Dayton with a dumb foul late in the game, but I’m crediting Miller’s suit.
