Twitter users believed that Jim Boeheim was the head coach of the Miami Hurricanes on Friday night.
The final 16th game of the 2022 NCAA Tournament comes on Friday night, as Hurricane 10 Miami pits hurricane No. 11 Iowa State Cyclones. The winner will head to the Elite Eight to take on the No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks.
For some of the Twitter users following the game, they were fully convinced that Jim Boeheim, head coach of Syracuse Orange, was on the sidelines managing the storm. No, that’s not Jim Boeheim – it’s Jim Larranaga.
Twitter convinces Jim Larranaga to be Jim Boeheim’s doppelgänger
For those asking if they’ve ever seen Boeheim and Larranaga in the same room, the answer is yes. The two schools competed in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and played against each other.
In short, the Miami head coach’s name is Jim, but no Boeheim’s last name.
