    They spelled DaJuan Summers's name wrong on the cover of their most recent issue.

    Oops. Someone's going to be on the chopping block there.

    Wow. That's inexcusable.

    Putting DaJuan Summers on the cover, that is.

    Misspelling his name is stupid, too.
     
  4. They also had something wrong about Tennessee, saying there were six teams from the state in the tourney (Vandy, Memphis, Tenn men and women, Belmont and Austin Peay). Guess the Vandy women, a four seed I believe, don't count.

    Will they correct mistakes before stories go into The Vault?

    Also, they've done this cover every year for like four or five years. It was cool the first couple of times. Now? Kinda trite.
     
  10. Stupid copy editors. I always knew they were all worthless.

    Words and spellings don't matter anymore. Math is now king in journalism.

    I think this is the first year they did it with the horseshit regional covers, deceiving someone into thinking, "Hey, there's something on DaJuan Summers (or Lofton, or Rush, or Lavender, or Adrien) in this issue."

    New rule: The cover subject has to have his name mentioned SOMEWHERE in the issue.
