Greg Gumbel calls Auburn ‘Mike Pearl’s team’ on selection show
Auburn earned a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament with a 25-7 season and an SEC Championship, but apparently the Tigers are heading to The Dance with a new head coach.
During the NCAA Selection Show on TBS Sunday, Greg Gumbel revealed that Auburn had earned the No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region. While sharing the news, Gumbel called the Tigers “Mike Pearl’s team.”

Gumbel meant to say Bruce Pearl, of course.
Unfortunately, that was not the only flub during the selection show, which has aired on CBS in past years. The show got off to a bad start with some embarrassing audio issues and was even mocked by a local police department in Kansas over its new format.
