    SOP for the DMR

    I am quietly reading today Register (online, it's free) and I noticed this.

    Possible upset
    BAYLOR VS. MISSOURI STATE: Eleventh-seeded Baylor is playing well despite winning only half of its final four games, and that's why sixth-seeded Missouri had better be on at least its B-game. The Tigers beat Baylor 78-71 last month, but that will mean little around 8:30 p.m. today.

    It seems that most Sports related mistakes (like the above) happen on ISU's side of the court (mainly Big12 references)...

    argh.

    - keep.

    We just need to create an entire forum for Rag mistakes...

    Re: SOP for the DMR

    This is not Register-related, but more Des Moines sports/media market-related. Besides a little ISU talk, have you ever heard Marty and Miller talk about the Big 12? They like to talk Big 10 and Mo. Valley (who's getting in the tourney...who's not, for example), but not much (if any) good Big 12 talk. That bothers me...This is Big 12 Country, in my opinion...go to Cedar Rapids to talk Big 10!

    Re: SOP for the DMR

    Yes!!! we should keep tabs on their mistakes. It's not that its hard to write obvious information. It's the lack of time spent on checking over simple articles. My fav. was Bobby Knight still coaches at Indiana according to the Rag.

    THANKS! It has been my sig since the 2005 game. I had misspelled Michigan (tough little box type in the scout boards) and that was all they would focus on. That game hurt them deep....
