Is this another sign of national media outlets disrespecting Michigan State?

In an ESPN push alert sent Monday morning, the sports network wrote, "SportsCenter Video: Michigan State coach Tim Izzo calls making Hall of Fame "greatest thing that ever happened to me."

Obviously, Michigan State's head coach is Tom Izzo, not Tim Izzo.

This comes less than a week after the Associated Press sent a tweet where they referred to Denzel Valentine as Denzel Washington. The AP later apologized for the error.

In December, Sports Illustrated also wrote, "How Mike Dantonio Rebuilt The Spartans," when the Michigan State head football coach's name is Mark Dantonio, not Mike.
