But come on, Longhorns. You are a part of the proud tradition of the University of Texas. Not “Texsa.”

The goof is in the University of Texas’ official media guide for the 2014 Longhorns football team, and NBC affiliate KXAN is calling it “the typo taking the internet by storm.”

In a piece with a typo of its own, KXAN notes:

Found in the footer of some of the players’ biography pages it appears a [sic] TexsaSports.com, a typo for the official website for University of Texas Athletics, TexasSports.com. However, some Oklahoma fans have already taken advantage of the typo and purchased TexsaSports.com to poke fun at their Texas rivals.

At the misspelled website, Sooners sneer: “OU IS BETTER THAN TEXAS. LEARN TO SPELL PLEASE, HRONS.”

Great grandma’s drawers!” as the high school football coach bellows in frustration in the Texas-based 2004 movie, “Friday Night Lights.”
