ESPN is guilty of that all the time. During the Xavier-Gonzaga game the announcers kept referring to Mark Lyons as a senior when in fact he is a junior. They did the same thing during the XU/Vandy game and pretty much every other ESPN broadcast featuring Xavier this year. It can't be that hard to do research on a roster, can it?
Depending on the reasoning, he may technically be a senior. For instance, medical redshirts are considered to be part of their class until after they've exhausted their eligibility. They then petition for an additional year. It's almost always granted, but until they do that, they're technically Seniors.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
