College football programs can officially begin delivering college scholarship offer forms on August 1, which makes the date a bit of Christmas in August for serious recruitnik fans. While there aren’t too many true “surprises”, occasionally a player will receive a letter that stands out, sometimes not for the right reasons.
Saturday was one of those days for Nate Craig-Myers, when the wide receiver prospect received a scholarship offer from Florida only to notice that the school sent him an offer letter with a pretty embarrassing typo.
As you can see in the photo above, the Florida Gators celebrating being the home of such luminaries as Percy Harvin (no problem there) and Cris Collinsworth. There’s just one problem: They spell Cris Collinsworth as Cris Collingsworth.
There is no “g” in Collinsworth’s name. We’re not even sure where Florida officials got the notion that a “g” made sense there. Of course, the most distressing factor is that an institution of higher learning would misspell the name of one of its most famous alums. Perhaps we shouldn’t be so surprised. After all, it didn’t seem to bother Craig-Myers, and we doubt many of his classmates even noticed the mistake whatsoever.
