Ever wonder how the Dick Vitale engine runs? Behold!

1. One of Dick Vitale's interns writes an article under Dickie V's byline about a college basketball topic. This week's happens to be about the Syracuse Orange. It also happened to contain a rather confusing paragraph...

It's confusing because a) Jim Boeheim has been in the Hall of Fame for eight years now, and b) Dick Vitale knows this.

2. Syracuse fans alert Dick Vitale to this transgression, which also seems to be the first time he's hearing of it/reading his article...

3. Vitale alerts his intern, who updates the copy.
