The Dagger - NCAAB

Wally Szczerbiak led Miami (Ohio) to the Sweet 16, played 10 years in the NBA and even made an All-Star team in 2002.

Those credentials apparently aren't enough to earn the analyst much respect from his own network.

According to Mike Vitiello from AwfulAnnouncing.com, CBS College Sports ran the above graphic last week referring to Szczerbiak as "Random Dude." I didn't see the broadcast live to verify it's legitimate, but I'm told this is no Photoshop hoax.

The most plausible explanation is probably that someone at CBS couldn't spell Szczerbiak's consonant-heavy last name, inserted default text in the box and then forgot to fix it prior to airtime.

Newspapers occasionally run dummy text by mistake. Therefore it's very possible for a TV station to make the same mistake.
