Formed the corps

FOUND ONLINE: Reaves, wide receiver Carlos Alvarez and running back Tommy Durrance formed the corps of the so-called “Super Sophs” that finished 9-1-1 during the 1969 season.

The writer probably meant core, not corps; at least that's the only thing that makes sense here.

ALSO FOUND ONLINE: The problem is we haven’t seen much of Smith recently do to an injury.

The writer meant due, not do; he didn't proofread his story. I found other typos, but I had to mention this one.
