The shots fired at Ohio State for reportedly trying to trademark the word “THE” have reached new and ever-more hilarious heights. With so many people dunking on the Buckeyes today, you just knew that Michigan was going to take a swing at their arch-rivals sooner or later.
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, the University of Michigan posted an image of the word “OF” with the Michigan logo front and center.
Naturally, a little trademark logo was added as well.
The Wolverines’ tweet has since gone viral.

Yesterday, a trademark attorney uncovered a trademark application by the school to have the word “THE” printed on merchandise.
Many people were quick to point and laugh at Ohio State for the ridiculous move, but it wasn’t just fans.
Ohio University decided to take a shot at Ohio State, pointing out that they were “THE” first university in the state.

And that’s really just the beginning. Countless jokes and troll jobs have been made at the Buckeyes’ expense for nearly day now.
The Michigan Wolverines haven’t had many victories over Ohio State in recent years, but today they definitely got the W.
