NCAA College World Series features misspelled dugout signs (Photo)

Someone in charge of making the signs above the dugouts for the NCAA College World Series in Omaha forgot to run a spellcheck before printing them out. That could have easily avoided the embarrassment of publicly displaying a sign featuring "college" spelled with three L's. Wonder if it's the same person who misspelled 'baseball' for the Big 12 tournament...

'College' World Series misspelled in Omaha

Looks like the NCAA needs a quick spelling lesson.  The banners on the top of one of the dugouts at the College Baseball World Series says “Colllege” instead of “College.”  Not sure how so many people missed this when they were creating it and installing it. [@howielindsay]

Gophers baseball team videobombs coach

Minnesota Gophers head coach John Anderson was doing an in-game interview in the bottom of the 4th inning of a recent game against Nebraska when a couple of Anderson’s players thought they’d get a little airtime themselves by videobombing their coach. But this wasn’t your ordinary, run-of-the-mill videobomb for simpletons. No, these guys took things up a notch, as two of the...
