South Florida's official push to join the Big 12 endured a bumpy spot Tuesday.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the Bulls prepared promotional materials to send to the conference in advance of their looming presentation with Big 12 officials.
On the first page, however, South Florida misspelled "research," spelling it "reasearch" instead in the second paragraph.
South Florida got the typo corrected, presumably before submitting the material to the conference.
The Big 12 has yet to indicate how spelling prowess could factor into its final evaluation of prospective expansion candidates.
