Gotta hate it when that happens: The University of Florida, whose school mascot is the alligator, sent out 19,000 copies of its football media guide before anyone figured out that the animal on the guide's cover is a crocodile. Oops!
[Sports information director Steve] McLain said he envisioned the cover featuring a ferocious-looking alligator, but he couldn't dig up a photo.
So he commissioned the company overseeing the publication's production, GBS Productions Graphics of Gainesville, to find the image he was seeking. But when the company passed along the photo, no one in the school's sports information office noticed that the "gator" was really a crocodile.
"When I ordered a picture of an alligator, I expected to get a picture of an alligator," McLain said.
