    I know we're just shooting the **** since illinoiscyclone is...somewhat incapacitated at the moment, but seeming like we were copying tOSU is exactly why we shouldn't do it. In fact, we wouldn't just be seeming to copy them, we would be copying them, and so would anybody else who started doing it.

    Not to mention that it's not just in sports that they call themselves The Ohio State University. That's actually the technical name of the school. Just like we're Iowa State University of Science and Technology.

    Given the fact that EVERY SINGLE YEAR Iowa State University enrolls more Iowa high school seniors than ANY other college or university, I think The Iowa State University is a very appropriate title.

    We already copied USC with their uniforms. May as well copy Ohio State, too. One could argue we copied Kansas State with all this "I-State" business but that's grasping at straws.

    Re: I think we should start saying...

    One of my biggest Pet Peaves in the NFL is during Sunday or Monday night games when the players introduce themselves and state the college they attended (or high school). You often hear guys put "THE" in front of their random school. I'd love to see that edited or bleeped out. That monicre belongs to Ohio State, plain and simple. I do believe they have earned it. Why would we want to use it? I think it sounds desparate when people use it to describe any other school but OSU.

    There are a lot of other schools that do the power chant as well... Washington State for example. I'm sure there are others.
