Miami is that good now that we'll confuse them with a Montana high school?

high schools are going to have to use mascots like Used Pickup Trucks, Empty Tin Cans, and Green Moon Cheese to avoid similarity with every college and professional sports logo. and even then they'll have to watch out for Minor League Baseball teams.

edmo: Miami is that good now that we'll confuse them with a Montana high school?


Yeah, right?

When they show up on the bottom line of a sports channel, it's always:

Miami(OH)

You're not even the cocaine and stripper Miami. You're the "Oh, that Miami". The one where the homecoming queen is the pretty Wal-Mart cashier. Who happens to date a meth dealer.

Way to Streisand the fark out of that one, guys. Seriously, there's not a FBS school for hundreds of miles around, were you planning on a trip to MSU but this broke the deal?

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL have entered the conversation.

Change the logo/name to Books. Nothing will get the kids more riled up than the chant of "Let's go, Books!" as a dusty old book mascot bangs a drum.

The Redacteds really need to get a name. Someone trademarked a bunch of potential names, but I think they're all "Washington X," as in Washington Monuments. Why not "DC X"?

I went to a private school and one year for the Christmas concert we sang songs from this. One student was dressed up as the book.

They have to work on their rebranding and work with their vendors? It's a farking high school football team for Chise sakes.

Miami of Ohio was established in 1809.  The school in Florida should be called the school that doesn't know much about the word Miami.

Any style book will tell you Miami (OH) is wrong. And this country isn't big enough for two Miamis. Keep the original, make the other school change its name.

Sorry, Hurricanes. You lost that contest by more than 100 years. University of Coral Gables works, though.

All the good choices got sniped by a trademark lawyer while Snyder was sitting on his ass jerking off to cheerleader photoshoots.

Right, but why not the DC Monuments instead of the Washington Monuments, for example?

I figured that pro sports teams and colleges didn't pester public schools for stealing their team logos because that's a very petty thing to do as there's effectively no harm in it, but I guess it does happen.

Unfortunately, trademark law doesn't care about good intentions. If you don't defend your trademarks, you stand to lose them. It doesn't work like copyright.

Racism has been around for a long time too, doesn't make it better.

The principal at the school I teach at has a cease-and-desist letter from Al Davis framed in his office over using the Raiders logo.
