As everyone knows, President Barack Obama is a big basketball fan. But apparently, he needs a lesson in college basketball history.
Obama hosted national champion Connecticut at the White House on Tuesday. As has been noted, coach Jim Calhoun recently joined John Wooden, Adolph Rupp, Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight as the only coaches to win three national titles.
Well, Obama accidentally called the legendary Kentucky coach Adolph “Ruff.”
For those conspiracy theorists out there, it should be noted that Obama’s personal aide is former Duke player Reggie Love. Was the gaffe a slip of the tongue, accidentally error…. or sabotage from a Blue Devil?
