How Is This Possible?

You only have to watch 45 seconds of this. ESPN's Desmond Howard breaks down the Holiday Bowl between California and Texas A&M. Some how, some way, he believes that the University of Texas will be playing California and even goes so far as to reference Texas players. Everybody else on the set just stands by and watches the carnage. (This occurred two days ago during the TCU bowl game.) So what does he do later? ESPN puts him on a different show to say he "mis-spoke." Say what? You didn't accidentally say a word you didn't mean to. You didn't know who was playing in a bowl game that you were paid to analyze! Incredible.
