OSU Wants to Trademark Urban Meyer's Name
COLUMBUS (Chris Vanocur) -- You may want to think twice before saying Urban Meyer's name... it may soon be trademarked.
The Ohio State University is now trying to trademark both the head coach's name and
the phrase Urban Meyer knows.
According to USA Today, the move would follow the latest trend in college football.
Schools like OSU are trademarking the names of their football bosses, likely as a way of protecting the image of both the coach and the school.
Now, because Coach Meyer doesn't have a lot of free time these days, we decided to reach out to other Urbans for comment.
Pope Urban II has been dead for more than 900 years and, unfortunately, was unavailable for comment (However, his agent did wish OSU good luck against Michigan).
Nor were we able to get a quote from the 14 ounce Urban Meyer filet mignon at the Hyde Park restaurant.
But on Facebook, we did find a lot of Urbans who live in the Columbus area.
We sent several of them messages asking for interviews, but our urgent Urban pleas went unanswered.
Unbelievably, that last sentence was the first I've ever written using three words that begin with the letter u.
Maybe I should trademark that sentence.
