    From cnn.com:


    (CNN) -- The pregnant coach of Seton Hill University women's lacrosse team was among two people killed Saturday when the bus they were on veered off the highway and crashed into a tree in southern Pennsylvania, authorities said.

    Re: Seton Hall lacrosse bus crashes; pregnant coach among casualties

    Thread title is wrong. It was Seton Hill, a small college in Pennsylvania, not Seton Hall, the Big East school in New Jersey.

    Headlines on a lot of websites are also saying Seton Hall, even though the story they're running clearly does say Seton Hil.

    Most people have never heard of Seton Hill. Terrible story either way.

    I thought Hall was what I saw on ESPN in the story but it's not...which was why I was curious as to why they didn't say "Seton Hall" on the link headline, seeing as how most people know about Seton Hall.

    If the driver was 61...I'm wondering if he didn't have a heart attack and she saw it happening and tried to get control of the bus...her position on the bus had to be near the front. He either fell asleep at the wheel or had a stroke or heart attack.

    This is probably the single biggest fear of any athletics administrator.

    I imagine plenty of confusion in the initial hours of this among those of us in sports and news.

    I assumed Seton Hall and even corrected it... until I saw "Seton Hill" twice in the copy. Look at it again. First time I've heard of "Seton Hill".

    Great example of why we should still check things even if we think we know why something's wrong. I've been guilty of similar mistakes as have almost all of us, and a lot of us walk that line every day.
