CBS screwed up on its Jim Boeheim graphic

Jim Boeheim Bucknell

A gaff by CBS placed legendary Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim at a school other than Syracuse.

During the NCAA Tournament first round game between Syracuse and TCU on Friday, CBS’ cameras showed Boeheim on the sideline. Under his name was the Syracuse logo, along with an orange background. To the right were the words “3rd season as Bucknell head coach.” Also displayed was a record of 68-32.

Nathan Davis is in his third season as head coach at Bucknell and the 68-32 record belongs to him. Bucknell lost to Michigan State 82-78 earlier in the day on Friday. Both Syracuse and Bucknell played their first round games in Detroit, which led to the graphic error.

It was obviously an innocent mistake by CBS, but it’s still pretty funny to see Boeheim associated with a school other than Syracuse. And now this mistake will make our long list of blunders.
