How would a person who went to an SEC school know anything about a second rate college? That would be one hell of a step up for an SEC school. SEC schools award credits for being able to find your dorm three days in a row.

I noticed today that when the refs made their first call of a game all the networks had a note under their name stating how many years of experience they had.

Was this a normal thing before the lockout? I remember it on Super Bowl games, but not regular season

Either the networks are capitalizing on the real refs being back and showing they're back by pointing out their years of experience, or it was part of the new contract.

so, you can actually tie your shoes, although barely. You must have gone to grad school. Most people from the SEC wear slip ons. I would call them loafers but that is what we call SEC students.

I think that's the running joke for all non-football schools or former football schools. I've got one of those WSU shirts, as well as a mug from UTSA with a similar joke on it.

Ed Hochuli was a three-year starter at linebacker at UTEP back in the early 1970's....and still in very good shape. Probably the most famous UTEP football player after hall of Famer Don Maynard

I am not surprised that somebody from that school does not understand facts. Ohio University does not have the word THE in its real, official name. The Ohio State University does have the word THE in its official name.

upload.wikimedia.org Do you see the word THE??

You are probably so out of touch that you do not realize that your school started all of this when your school tried to trademark the word OHIO.  Something so amazingly stupid, it could only happen in Athens, Ohio Link

Who gets pissy about it? Ohio University tried to trademark the word Ohio and somehow it came to the athletes saying THE Ohio State University. So, it is a shot at OU and yet a whole bunch of you get your panties all twisted over it. I have never understood why. There is no reason for anybody but the folks at OU to get upset and yet people all over the country act like children over something that has no meaning for them.

The true definition of stupid.

What I find stupid is the pretentious use of THE Ohio State University and the instant "we'll that's what it's called" defense when people rightly make fun of it (as perfectly demonstrate by your third post in this thread). My point is that I could very well say I went to THE University of Alabama, but I don't because it's dumb and pretentious.

Also, there's nothing particularly strange about Ohio's trademark application. They are Ohio, that's their team's name. Alabama has "Alabama" trademarked as well. Are they going to sue over any shirt with "Ohio" on it. Probably not. But if you print a green shirt with "OHIO" on it in white letters, they're going to care about it. As they should. 

You also forgot to mention that Ohio State dropped its challenge when OU complied a crapload of evidence that they've been called "OHIO" for decades.

I don't know why you think anybody's upset about the whole deal. Nobody really cares (except maybe OU fans) what tOSU fans call themselves. We just find it funny, hence why you see jokes like "THE University of Buffalo." Then, people like you, who don't seem to get the joke, come in and say things like "problem is, the school is not named THE University of Buffalo while THE Ohio State University is accurate," as though that has any bearing on anything. You don't say THE Ohio State University because it's called The Ohio State University. You do it because you're pretentious, or you want to be different (like "Tha U"), or you have an OU inferiority complex, or for whatever other reason.

My point is that tOSU isn't special in having "THE" as an official part of its name. And if you didn't get all prickly when people made the joke, it'd never be an issue.

gee, professor, maybe you should read some of the posts in this thread. You would see that some people are
pissed.

All I was doing was explaining why some athletes emphasize the word THE. I never refer to OSU like that

I think that lots of people emphasize the word THE because it rattles people like you. And do not deny that it bothers you because your responding to this at all shows that it does.

Accusing them of being pretentious is ignorance. It is too narrow in focus for that.
