Texas Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger had a productive Senior Bowl on Saturday, helping the National Team beat the American Team 27-24.
But during the broadcast, when it was time to flash Ehlinger’s stat line, the NFL Network accidentally used a photo of his brother, Jake Ehlinger, who finished his freshman season and is a linebacker at UT.
Oops! I know the NFL Network employees die hard NFL fans and likely not as many college football fans, but come on! First off, Jake Ehlinger looks like he’s still seven years old, which is about as long as Sam has been at Texas.
Secondly, Sam Ehlinger has been one of the most recognizable faces in college football for the last 2-3 seasons and plays for one of the most popular teams in America, yet no one realized that this photo was clearly not Sam before it went live?
I’m not losing sleep over it, but there are things that just make you shake your head, and this would be that.
Sam Ehlinger finished his Senior Bowl going 4/10 for 42 yards and one touchdown pass.
