Florida Gulf Coast's Brett Comer's name was misspelled by TBS, which has a history of misspelling athletes' names on their air.

Okay, so the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles aren’t necessarily household names.

Sherwood Brown. Bernard Thompson. Brett Comer. They’ve made their presence known during the second and third rounds of this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament.

Unfortunately, TBS’ graphics department have also made their presence known when it comes to what we call the ChyronFail.

During the bridge show between TBS’ Sunday night NCAA doubleheader of FGCU/San Diego State and Duke/Creighton, a highlight reel of Comer was preceded by yet another addition to TBS’ lowlight reel.

As the network would say: Very funny.

    I’m laying the blame on the poor kerning of “r” and “n”; when they’re adjacent, those lowercase letters look more like “m” than they do separate characters. So the poor graphics guy trying to read “Comer” saw “Corner” instead.
