Don't They Fact Check Anymore?

I think it’s the AP story, but still…

The Nittany Lions have won two straight tourney games for the first time in school history -- though it may be advisable to avoid watching the replay on tape.
2001 and I think 2000 too.
Top scorers Jon Leuer and Jordan Taylor struggled all night, and it took nearly 36 minutes for Wisconsin (23-8) to get a third player in the scoring column.
Bruesewitz scored just under 6 minutes into the half.

ah news companies aren’t what they used to be. Fact checking is one of the things that get neglected in the twitter-verse on reporting.

Maybe that is one of those stories written by the computers by using the box score.

Sticking with the thread…

[b]The 7-10 game matches two Pennsylvania teams that never play; [/b] instead, Temple and Penn State travel across the country to Tucson, Ariz., in what promises to be a defensive slugfest. The over/under on total points in that game? Hmmm – what about 86.
