New players in Ranked Silver

Almost every game but probably closer to every other game, there are players that call a position (in ranked silver), lock in and then once the game begins (and thus their feeding), inform the team that they are new to their position. I main support and countless times in ranked I've gotten adc's that are NEW TO ADC BY THEIR OWN ADMISSION and are trying it out in RANKED GAMES.

But today there was a change of pace. We got a Talon who claimed he was new to map, after not understanding what I meant by warding mid and proceeding to feed until we lost. New to map? How is that possible? Is it actually possible to play Twisted Treeline ranked until Silver ranked on Summoner's Rift?
