PHOTO: USF needs a spellcheck

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer

First, the good news for graduating fifth-year USF senior punter Justin Brockhaus-Kann: He was honored with the team's Special Teams Player of the Year Award at halftime of the Bulls' basketball game vs. Louisville on Sunday.

Now, the bad news: Apparently those five years weren't long enough for whatever award-makers USF contracted with to learn how to spell "Justin Brockhaus-Kann." Via the Twitter account of USF cheerleader Amy Phillips:

The worse news: Not only is the name misspelled, but based on the spelling from Brockhaus-Kann's official USF bio, it's not even close.

But, hey, here's some "good" news (well, in addition to a guess that USF will replace the award) for Brockhaus-Kann: Judging by the spelling of "offensive," it's a safe assumption this wasn't anything personal on the part of the award-maker.

HT: Bulls fan blog Voodoo Five, who takes the mistake in stride (or not) by writing "it's a metaphor for everything we're doing wrong at USF Athletics presently. It's half-assed, on the cheap, and cutting corners. And it has to stop now."
