I'll preface this by saying that while I still read the paper on a daily basis, I generally don't read game stories because I've gotten all the info I would want through the innerwebs by the time the paper arrives.  This weekend, however, I read the stories about the the baseball games against State and noticed Tom Murphy using the "University of Arkansas, Fayetteville" in each of his game stories.  This morning, I noticed Little Wally using it as well.  I have not noticed this before.  How long has this been used?  It's silly and annoying.

only for a couple of weeks now.  people have been asking him about this shit and he won't answer.  they aren't doing it with any of the other schools. 

and no one is going to fucking mistake the Hogs for Morrilton in the NCAA tournament.

I noticed it too.  It looks like an auto correct from their database probably every time they write up a story. 

It's definitely stupid but there's a bunch of stuff I would fix for their paper along with it anyway.

don't think so.  other writers outside of wally & nate the dirty hippy don't do that shit. 

I think they fired all their editors b/c every day I find misspellings, bad syntax and outright mistakes.

I do indeed and Nelson Mandela would have as well had he run across this TV listing from The Times (of London):

"By train, plane and sedan chair, Peter Ustinov retraces a journey made by Mark Twain a century ago. The highlights of his global tour include encounters with Nelson Mandela, an 800-year-old demigod and a dildo collector."

My guess they made Keebler man so this is revenge. He is acting out of character lately by writing timely word salads.

The ADG made a style change a few weeks ago, it's dumb, but it's across the board, not just the sports section

Don't a lot of the die hard red wolves do that? I had never heard the UA referred to as UAF until I read some posts by those goons.

When was the last time they said ATU- Russvegas?  Or University of the Ozarks - Ozark?  They haven't.

Are there other campuses using the same naming convention as those two schools?

UA-Fayetteville doesnt bother me, it is probably grammatically correct, but it is also unnecessary and I am sure it is a jab at someone or some thing.

You can't really compare it to your two examples unless there are other campuses of those two schools that I dont know about.

ASU has multiple campuses, and I haven't seen them use ASU- Jonesboro.   Not to say they haven't, but I haven't seen it and I read the sports page every day.  I think someone in middle management is butthurt over something.

The University of Arkansas at Fort Smith (UAFS), is called, "YouFus," by a lot of people, though it is not sanctioned by the administration. By all accounts, they hate when people call it YouFus.

Maybe we should do what the Buckeyes do, and change it to, "The University of Arkansas." That way, Wally and Allen, can not called it something else. The satellite universities be damned.

Remember when the DemGaz wouldn't use Little Rock Trojans, still used UALR during last year's tourney run?

I think your last sentence is the reason. Seems ghey and petty to me, a perfect thing to focus on for a dying industry like the newspaper.
