Texas media guide published with recurring typo

Everybody makes a typo from time to time, and I may be one of the biggest culprits. But I also do not print and release 200-page media guides for some of the largest college football programs in the country, like Texas.

The Texas Longhorns media guide was released with a typo at the bottom of each and every page of the media guide, misspelling the website address for Texas sports website (TexsaSports.com). Hey, mistakes happen but this one happened to be printed through the entire media guide.

How could something like this happen?

This is just a hunch, but it is not as though somebody manually typed the same typo for each page of the media guide. The media guide was more likely formatted so the address only needed to be typed once and it would appear on each page of the media guide. This may have also been one of the first things entered into the media guide as well, so it could have easily been forgotten.

For what it is worth, the typo has been corrected.

    The domain has already been purchased by a Sooner LOL.

    That’s hilarious. Props to whatever Sooner fan jumped on that so quickly. Well played, sir.

    And from my years working on projects like this, headers and footers invite errors. This was the worst of both worlds: In the footer of the document that normally won’t even show on the screen in normal work mode, plus a website so it would be overlooked when it came up on spellcheck because the worker knew it’d come up as misspelled because it wasn’t a real word. Still should have been caught, but not as hard a mistake to make as you might think.
