I'm Officially Boycotting Sports Illustrated

Are you kidding me?!?!?!'s college hoops section has a story listed in their "Top Stories" with the headline: "Former, current Georegetown player arrested." If you follow the link, you get to this Associated Press story with the title "Ex, current Hoyas player arrested."

The problem is, the "Georgetown" basketball players that this story discusses are affiliated with Georgetown College, the Baptist institution in Georgetown, KY. They are not from alma mater, Georgetown University, the Catholic institution in Washington, DC. As such, they aren't even Hoyas. They are Tigers.

This is some seriously sloppy journalism! SI better have an apology posted pronto!

UPDATE: has fixed the headline on the story. The link now reads "Ex, current Gtown College player arrested." The story itself now says "Georgetown College players arrested." I bet it disappears from their "Top Stories" section pretty quickly now that they know it's not about the mighty Hoyas.
