BTN announcer flubs “success”, talks about sex

One of the more common announcing flubs we've seen lately is a commentator meaning to talk about success, but stumbling over his words and instead saying sex. During Saturday's Southern Miss-Nebraska game, play by play commentator Paul Burmeister asked sideline reporter Damon Benning about next weekend's UCLA-Nebraska game. Benning stumbled when discussing last year's game, and said the unfortunate line of, "Nebraska's got a lot of tape of what UCLA did to them last year to have a lot of sex…er, success".

Oh. Flubs don't get much more ill-timed than that given the content of the rest of the quote.
