Trey Burke Michigan

Mixing up what school a player went to occasionally happens, but saying that a prominent former college player went to one of his school’s biggest rivals? That’s a little more rare, but that’s what Kevin Harlan did on the TNT broadcast of Wizards-Knicks Thursday. Harlan said Washington guard Trey Burke, who shone at Michigan, was “the former Big Ten player of the year at Ohio State”:

Unsurprisingly, misassigning Burke’s school that way got some backlash.

Yep, mixing up Ohio State and Michigan is not going to go over well with fans of either. We’re just waiting for Jim Harbaugh to weigh in with a corrective tweet now…
