    7) Ya think that might be why she added “, too” to the end of the headline? Maybe it was a little tongue in cheek…

    I love how TT says facts are optional at ESPN “too”. Implying she knows they don’t use facts here at KSR. Thanks for admitting it at least.

    7 – The real fact is:
    A typographical error (often shortened to typo) is a mistake made in the typing process (such as spelling)[2] of printed material. Historically, this referred to mistakes in manual type-setting (typography). The term includes errors due to mechanical failure or slips of the hand or finger,[2] but excludes errors of ignorance, such as spelling errors. Before the arrival of printing, the “copyist’s mistake” or “scribal error” was the equivalent for manuscripts. Most typos involve simple duplication, omission, transposition, or substitution of a small number of characters.
    As ESPN incorrectly named Mark Stoops by his brother Bob’s name this does not fall into the category of “typo” and is simply an error. Those are the faycts. Facts may I introduce YOU to Mr. Kettle.

    When Jones wasn’t busy spreading fake Kevin Ware stories, he reported that “The Fridge” was dead. What a douche nozzle.

    11 – It was all over the internet that The Fridge was dead. It wasn’t Matt breaking the story that he was dead. Many celebrities are reported dead on twitter without it being true. As for the so called fake Kevin Ware story have a look at this from @IUsportsreport http://t.co/vVhIRqTr2w

    11 – If you are too lazy to go to that link here is the 1st paragraph of it:

    “Rick Pitino likes to be the big fish in any pond and this week he’s showing his muscle to the Louisville media. Kevin Ware has arguably been the biggest name in college basketball and earlier this summer, he was dismissed from the Louisville basketball team for a repeat violation of the same team rule. Kevin Ware was dismissed for multiple drug test failures; this dismissal has been confirmed by a support staff member of the University of Louisville men’s basketball team on more than one occasion.”

    Note that last part about the dismissal being confirmed by a support staff member of UL’s basketball team on more than one occasion.

    It’s mindboggling anyone would use Twitter or IU Sports Report as a source for anyrhing. Even IU fans don’t read that. Why not use The Onion? It has more credibility.
