I found this amusing......

From its seven national championships to its 49 NCAA tournament appearances to its sparkling 23-1 record this season, Kentucky has a lot to boast about when it comes to basketball pedigree.

It seems that's not enough, however, for Nike to spell the name of the school right on its jerseys.

In a photo shoot for the cover of the March issue of Slam Magazine shot earlier this week, star freshman John Wall originally donned a jersey with "Kentcuky" emblazoned on the front.

As spelling errors go, this one was somewhat of a freudian slip. Surely it can't be an accident that the last four letters spelled "C U KY" when Wall is all but certain to leave Kentucky for the pros in a few months, right?

Coach John Calipari tweeted a picture of the shoot on Wednesday morning and then later assured observant fans that the staff had caught the spelling error before going forward with the shoot.

Wrote Calipari: "We were wondering would you guys notice the Wall jersey. UK fans don't miss anything! Of course, we switched to correct version later."
You'll be proud of our young people in the classroom, in the community, and most especially in 310 days in Ann Arbor, Michigan on the football field. - Jim Tressel
