Ohio State tried to trademark THE
Ohio State's application to trademark the word "THE" has been denied.

Some levity for your Wednesday. Ohio State has apparently been aiming to trademark "THE" as in "THE Ohio State," but alas for the Buckeyes marketing office, the most common word in the English language will continue to work as a free agent. The ill-fated application was initially filed on Aug. 8.

Did the first attempt not go through?

re: Ohio State tried to trademark THE
I thought "The" was the failed trademark from a few weeks ago. Is this another dumb OSU trademark attempt?

Ohio State should trademark losing to a bad Big 10 team in late October or November and missing the playoffs.

Only 3 schools own one of those.

I know it's frustrating that none of your teams do.

re: Ohio State tried to trademark THE
Were they only trying to trademark its use with the name of a university? Surely they didn't waste money trying to get a blanket trademark on the word "the".

Companies have been producing apparel with just "THE" on it, usually in scarlet and gray.

Ohio State wants to regulate its use.

Yes. For example Bowling Green State University is an Ohio state university. And apparently the good people in Columbus are worried about confusion
