God bless local news.

If you ever bump into Nigel Hayes, give the guy a hug.

The Wisconsin Badgers student is making headlines this week and it’s all for the wrong reasons. At a recent press conference, Hayes, who plays for the school’s basketball team, took what he thought was the final question.

Little did he know, everyone in the room — and the world — would hear him whisper a flattering comment about a lady seconds later. While it’s unclear who he’s talking about — a reporter, the stenographer or a staff member — one thing’s for sure, Hayes will never ever forget about his sophomore year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Watch it all go terribly down, above.
