C.L Brown is pretty respected in the sports journalism biz. He was a UofL beat writer for years for the Louisville Courier-Journal, so he is very familiar with the local talent around the Kentucky Wildcats.
Now Brown is now a writer for ESPN. He wrote a piece previewing some of the newcomers in the SEC and, of course, De'Aaron Fox is highlighted along with Bam Adebayo. Both players are top 15 recruits and both figure to be in the races for SEC Player of the Year and All-SEC Team honors.
Here is the headline and tell me if you notice anything a little off about it:
Yes, that's right, John Calipari cannot wait to get Bem and De'Aron on the court, ready to take the SEC by storm.
Now, far be it from me to call out writing mistakes, I've made my fair share of mistakes during my illustrious amateur blogging career. But C.L. is a professional and should do better than this.
But it's not all on him. ESPN has editors. Paid editors that have the one job of cleaning up any messes or oversights. Notice the highlighted date on the picture. Yup. August 8th, 2016. This has been up for TWO DAYS.
Other Kentucky freshmen that could make an impact:
EJ Fo Real.
Lost in all of this is that C.L. actually has some good stuff to say about Bem, I mean Bam, and De'Aaron.
It happens to all of us at some point, but seriously, clean it up ESPN.
