At the top of today's Tampa Bay Times sporps section

 Florida vs. Iowa

 

And nobody along the way said, "Wait, this says Florida's in a bowl game? That can't be right."

I created an account just to tell you how obvious you are at your poor trolling efforts. Remember your first post? Yea well you haven't lived up to that. I liked you when you talked trash about Dakich, but now you have become a slappy.

Get the fuck outta here. You were right on me being WD troll accounts and Julian. I was trying to rejoin the board and become a good member again with Julian, but we all knew that wasn’t going to happen. Thr WD troll accounts I owned were Wolverine Peevotee, Wolverine Devotee’s Girlfriend, and Big Deezy. I also owned the RichGod account. That fucking asshat “God” isn’t me. Nor Inman. This guy Orlando isn’t me either.

… way out into the weeds of how newsrooms tend to work, but no, not typically. Virtually all the digital proofs reviewed in the sports department would show the editorial content with empty spaces for ad placement. It's possible there could be one person at the very end of the night with the opportunity to see the complete page with both editorial content and ads, but they're not concerned with finding errors in the advertising. The advertising department is gone long before page proofs are available. So if someone with the opportunity to correct this mistake were to catch it on a proof, it would be sheer luck/coincidence.)

the genius editor of the display advertising section made the sensible assumption that the Gators and the Hawkeyes play each other every year in Tampa.

Just another example of why newspapers are going the way of the dinosaur.

There only seems to be the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the LA Times.  If you are reading anything else newspaper wise (with a few exceptions), you are wasting your time.
