    From his Daily Word item today on Nebraska's Barry Collier considering going to Butler to be the AD:

    "That's why assistant coach Scott Spinelli left Nebraska for instate rival Wichita State for a similar position."

    Kid in the office i just left once wrote a blurb on the "instate rivalry" between Virginia and West Virginia ... technically correct at one time, of course, but long before any of us was born.

    You guys are the dumbasses. In the fine print of the Kansas-Nebraska act was the trade of Wichita to Nebraska for two cities to be named later.

    Beyond the obvious geographic miscue, that sentence is another prime example of the tortured Katzian prose style. While yes, we all have made similar stupid errors in print, I hope few of us treat the English language on a consistent basis with such contempt.

    i am one douchebag who has made plenty of mistakes over 28 years in the biz. but not knowing what state a city is in is not among them, nor is it what i'd label as "minor." :eek: :eek: :eek:

    It's close to Ohio, Pennsylvania Maryland and Virginia. It's hilly, has rivers, steel and coal industry.
    And a BCS contender. ;D
