Jim Nantz Made An Embarrassing Mistake Today

Day 2 of the 2018 NCAA Tournament started off with a kind of embarrassing mistake by Jim Nantz.

The CBS play-by-play man forgot which conference a team was in.

Texas A&M made the move from the Big 12 to the SEC more than five years ago. The move became official in 2012.

Nantz forgot about this, apparently.

CBS' veteran announcer called this afternoon's matchup between No. 7 Texas A&M and No. 10 Providence a battle between the Big East and the Big 12.


It's OK, Jim.

Texas A&M still doesn't feel completely like an SEC team.

The Aggies and the Friars are playing on CBS.
