No it need not be entirely wrong, Matematik (by the way since you're being so persnickety, "sample sentence" is the correct form, not "example sentence"). I gave you the analogy of "weigh in" as a verbal form.

So "total in" would be just non standard, which is not the same thing as "wrong", unless you are a very peculiar and crabbèd sort of prescriptivist (even Fowler allowed for the use of "ain't", for example).
