VIDEO: Jordan Jefferson Calls Thomas Jefferson 'George' Jefferson

LSU Tigers QB Jordan Jefferson, a sport administration major, confused Thomas Jefferson with George Jefferson while playing a game on TV. He may be thinking of the protagonist of The Jeffersons, or he may be thinking of any of these people or these people. There are also lots of places named JeffersonThere's even a Jefferson, Louisiana.

Here's the video, but afterward I think you'll see the whole mixup was due to a trick of lighting for which ESPN should be ashamed.

This appears to be the actual image Jefferson was looking at:



Virginia fans: not so easy now, is it? The saddest part of this event: we may not get to hear Les Miles' version of events, which would somehow be even more bizarre. Kind of think that if Cliff Harris were invited to play this game, every answer would be "Cliff Harris."
