I know this is an old thread, but I just had to post the article below.  I really expect better from a BIG 10 Team then to have a typo in the school name on a jersey.

The “Indinia” Hoosiers got off to a brutal start on Saturday afternoon in Iowa City.

But is it worse than someone writing "then" instead of "than" in a thread about spelling and grammatical errors?

In the race of life, always back self-interest. At least you know it's trying.

Can I plead the 5th and not answer?

You can say you went to Chicago public schools like @ChetlovesMer!

OMG, was my error that bad?

I think I would rather just admit my guilt and ask for mercy from the grammar police before claiming the Chicago School defense.

I’ve been to Indiana many times. Indinia sounds better.

Spot the wrong sentence: Can she get one for you and I? You and me are going on vacation.

Fifty years from now, many of these will be accepted as standard English.  And they forgot “could of” instead of “could have.”

 I’m still trying to get used to changes in meanings. I’ve heard/read “infamous” and “notorious” referring to positive traits several times in recent months.

Don’t even get me started on pronunciation. :yucky:

Well the article is discussing proper use of proper words, phrases and when to use each one. ‘Could of’ is never proper.

Does anyone else get annoyed at the incorrect usage and/or over usage of "literally"? Why does someone think they need to tell you "I literally just arrived." when you saw them come in the door? It makes me want to "figuratively" jump off a bridge.

It is overused quite a bit.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

Yes, I do.

But linguists are already telling us that the meaning has changed, and that we old codgers need to just accept it, because "very" and "really" went through this same change years ago--and now it's litterally's turn.  The definition now includes "used for emphasis or to express strong feeling while not being literally true."

    • Day 66 (9/29/22): Went backwards today a little. I wanted to see if I could improve my wedge striking and hit 2 sand wedges. I began with impact pre-set drills. But I rushed my way into full swings and started paying too much attention to launch monitor numbers. I lost the feel that I had been building up, and started raking balls and didn't realize what I was doing for nearly an hour. I stopped and went back to the impact preset drills, but by this time I was feeling a bit sore in the lower back and needed to stop. It will probably take a couple of days and alot of patience to fix this and get back to where I was. 
    • Day 204.  Fit for Golf, in-season workout phase 1 workout b.  
    • Day 19: Did snot zone mapping with 7-iron and Mevo+. Pretty happy with dispersion, although everything a bit left of target. However it was was dark out and I am not sure if I had the device aligned correctly since I couldn't use the camera.
    • It is tough for me to judge a person just based on a handful of decisions due to not knowing the nuances of the situation. The nuance are numerous. All I can say is, I do not think he is handling this LIV stuff very well at all.   
    • @Davie81 haven’t heard of Druids.  But if you’re looking for recommendations on a waterproof bag, I have a Big Max that I’m pretty happy with.  Played in pouring rain twice while on a golf trip last Spring and the bag kept everything dry.
