Niagara's typos


The better basketball team will be determined on the court. But KU may already have defeated Niagara in the realm of copy-editing.The [Purple Eagles'][1] official site features the headline "No. 16 Trys to Make History vs. No. 1 Kansas."And if you type in "Niagara basketball" into the Yahoo! search engine, you'll end up with a line promoting the "Official site of the Niagara Puple Eagles men's basketball team." Note that's "Puple," not "Purple."Just food for thought if that helps you fill out your brackets today. KU and Niagara face off in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at 6:10 p.m. Friday.

Damn. I knew Jayhawk fans were arrogant, but it takes some serious balls to point out another web site's typos. Because, you know, LJWorld.com has NEVER posted any typos in it's breaking news headlines or items. Or main entry items, either. Never.

Is the term "typo" even appropriate for a formal print publication?

Hey LJW,

I have a message for Mr. Pot, who I understand works for you. The message is from a Mr. Kettle. He says you're black.

Jesus, this is childish. I seem to recall one LJW headine "Storm's bite worse than bark" when speaking of a noisy, thundrous storm that had very little rain or wind.

Grow up, LJW.

And this trash wins awards? Pathetic!

Too bad LJW's proofreader didn't notice the 2nd paragraph headline "No. 16 Trys to Make History vs. No. 1 Kansas". It should be "tries" not "trys".

Need a proofreader? I am available.

onrywmn: I think they were trying to point that out as a typo on the Puple Eagles' website.

compmd FTW!

LJW: How do y'all pull your pants up with balls that big? Seriously.

Finally justice prevails. Teams and schools that can't spell deserve to be beaten by at least 40 points.
