    Correct spelling of our players

    Ok, I know it's not that big of a deal, but it still is a pet peeve of mine when we can't spell our own player's names right. I have an unusual name and it drives me nuts when people get it wrong. And I am not saying I'm a god, I am sure I have made plenty of typos, but for the record so everyone knows:

    It is:

    Jiri Hubalek - not Juri
    Rahshon Clark - notice the first h
    Chris Ceaser - e before a, e at the end
    Will Blalock - this one still bothers me. There is no Y!!!!
    Jessan Gray - not Jessen
    Corey McIntosh - e
    Cory Johnson - no e

    Thank you for letting me get this off my chest.

    Re: Correct spelling of our players

    For the longest time I was guilty of typing Juri instead of Jiri. Finally someone pointed it out to me in a polite manner.

    I'm damn glad he did. I felt like a moron spelling one of our own player's names incorrectly.

    Good post - hopefully everyone reads it.

    Re: Correct spelling of our players

    This transcends to the football field as well...

    Our football coach's name is Chizik

    The starting quarterback for the last three years is Bret Meyer, not Brett Meyers

    ...and don't forget about never used walk-on linebacker Brian Eckwelundu, at least thats how I think you spell it haha

    Remind me to not start any Duke basketball threads (but they did get swept by Florida State this season!). I'd hate to see me try to spell Coach Chechefski's name right.h

    Re: Correct spelling of our players

    Jessan is actually pronounced Jess-on. But he doesn't care because he knows no one will ever get it pronounced right, so every just calls him Jess-an.
