MGoBlog is good for that sort of thing. I remember one time I was planning a surprise trip to Chicago for my better half's birthday, if I hadn't started a thread on here about it I would have missed out on some cool shit.

The Mgocommunity has changed a lot since then, so now you get people being snarky about it but at one time this place was all-round great.

It might be a JOIN issue in their SQL or something along those lines. It doesn't necessarily mean that they forgot something.

Side Note: It feels awkward that the possibility of a programming error pops into my head before the possibility of stupidity.

might be very confused:

"Wait, The Big Ten has 12 teams and the Big Twelve has 10 teams? The why does the Pac-12 have 12 teams? Shouldn't it have 10? Then it could still be called the Pac-10, with its 12 teams. Why did those left coasters change the name and mess up the algorithm?

I think it's great that this was pointed out.  The expectations of a global sports network like ESPN are that they wouldn't make a mistake like this.  After all, they are the "worldwide leader in sports"  Although this mistake may be small to some, I think it's great that it has been pointed out.

They didn't understand how there could be a "Leaders" division without the "Worldwide Leader" in it.  So they took out Wiscy, left room for themselves, and started ringing Jim Delaney's phone off the hook.
