Magazine editors make mistakes, even when it comes to the great Mike Singletary
Magazine editors make mistakes all the time. We're all human, but we found this error from the September 2011 issue of Texas Monthly to be especially enjoyable.
According to their "Regret The Error" page:
Our college football package also contained a mistake. The item regarding throwback jerseys erroneously stated that Baylor University linebacker Mike Singletary once made 79 tackles in a single game. That is pretty much impossible--even for Mike Singletary. In fact, the most tackles the two-time All-American ever had in a game at Baylor was 33. We regret these errors.
So there you have it. I think it should be pointed out that 33 tackles in a game is still pretty damn awesome. Even if it's nowhere close to 79.
