Well, the department used to be called Sports Information.


Now it's called Strategic Communications. Their social media game is strong, because that's strategic communications (PR), but the sports information part of it isn't what it used to be.

Everyone makes mistakes, but they tend to make a lot of them now. The original football depth chart this year had three mistakes on it, out of 22 players.

I've tried to look up football players' parents' names, which used to be a standard part of their profile, but some don't have them now. We went to look up Tremaine Edmunds' birth date in his profile -- it's not there, even though it was printed in a media guide from 2015.

And on and on. I like the people over there, but the Sports Information isn't what it used to be. They used to have TREMENDOUS attention to detail. Now, not so much.

(Disclaimer: TSL makes a bunch of mistakes, too.)
