It's been a tough week for Michigan State fans. First, the AP screwed up the headline for its Player of the Year tweet, calling Denzel Valentine Denzel Washington. Now, ESPN has made a similar gaffe on its app alert for Tom Izzo's inclusion in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

ESPN accidentally referred to the Spartans head coach as "Tim Izzo" - setting off MSU fans around the globe.
