Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times made a public records request of all materials created by USF in terms of Big XII expansion.
Here’s what he got: A two-minute video we really like, but that we can’t embed. Click on it here.
A .pdf of USF's case you can read in full here: Big XII CaseStatement
And a "highlights book" that looks like this: Big XII HighlightsBook
Because USF and because of course, the first non-bolded line of the case statement misspelled "research" as "reasearch."
Fortunately no one noticed and it's not a big deal and oh Christ Almighty WTF:
USF MISSPELLED "RESEARCH" IN THE FIRST SENTENCE OF ITS PITCH OF WHY IT IS A GOOD RESEARCH UNIVERSITY https://t.co/jlbJ8x09tf— We take the stairs (@NoEscalators) August 16, 2016
So... yeah. At least they fixed it within minutes:
We'll have thoughts about these materials and what they mean later (besides the inexcusable spellcheck fail, I kind of like them on first glance), but we wanted to get them out here ASAP.
Tell us what you think!
