Another Typo Ruins Sparty's Cool Sign

August 4, 2014 at 9:18p    by DJ Byrnes    

Sparty upgraded their facilities this off-season, but did not budget enough for a copy editor. 

First, there was the sign that made it seem Mark Dantonio was disappointed in a missing apostrophe

Now, there's this:

Oops indeed.

Me too.  I even Ctrl-F'ed "Staee" and it came up with nothing.  I upvote in spirit.

Just unbelievable that this could happen. Even MI would probably get this one right.

Maybe just use dry erase boards.

I'm not one to usually make a big deal out of spelling/grammar errors in casual dialogue/comments, but to spend all that money on a sign that has an error does not do the reputation of the school well... not to say that we are completely free of these errors ourselves, but thankfully I have not had such inacurate OSU material pass my eyeball test.

The sign has no commas or punctuation. It is a horrible run on sentence as well.

M Man, all of that state up north is damn near equal in our eyes in that we don't give a damn about it.

This looks similar to some of the plaques and signs we have here at University of Louisville in the Health Science campus. If it is the same type of sign I think it is, its actually a transparency with the writing on it, laid onto the backing and held in place by those cylindrical nuts on the front. It is real easy to get a new transparency and switch it out. Shouldn't cost that much to fix.

unless it is actually a piece of plexiglass with the writing on it, that could be a decent cost to fix, but I doubt it. Many of these things are set up to be interchangeable easily.

Now the previous apostrophe issue looks a lot more permanent!

I love it when I see people use words like "whereas" in the same block of text as a glaring error.

Further poster sayeth naught.
