Some typos are more horrendous than others. Anyone can make a mistake, but when you work for the University of Texas, it is pretty important to spell “Texas” correctly. Especially when your typo shows up in a media guide. On every other page.

That’s one “Texsa”-sized typo.

Inevitably, an Oklahoma fan moved quickly to register the domain name texsasports.com. A visit there reveals the Longhorns’ logo with the Sooners’ “OU” superimposed over it, plus the message, “OU IS BETTER THAN TEXAS. LEARN TO SPELL PLEASE, HRONS.”
