LOOK: Panthers players make fun of 'THE Ohio State University'
'The Ohio State University' isn't the only school that puts 'the' in front of its name.
During on-screen player introductions for Sunday Night Football, the starters for each team get to introduce themselves to the world by announcing their name and where they went to college.
If you've watched any prime time game for the past decade, then you've probably noticed that every single Ohio State player didn't actually go to Ohio State, they went to "THE Ohio State University."
Several Carolina Panthers players obviously find this ridiculous, so they decided to make fun of it on Sunday night before they beat the Eagles 24-16.
Charles Tillman said he attended, "The University of Louisiana."
Thomas Davis attended, "The University of Georgia."
Even a few fans took notice.
Thomas Davis. THE University of Georgia— Kuhh™ (@charris2323) October 26, 2015
"The" University of Georgia. "The" University of Louisiana. Cute. Let em know Kurt. #THE— Darius M. Thigpen (@Thig08) October 26, 2015
THE University of Georgia or THE University of Louisiana doesn't really exist right? Lol I mean it's only THE Ohio State University...?— Æ (@Miss_AVN) October 26, 2015
THE University of Georgia. . BYE— Candice Marie (@cmarie_84) October 26, 2015
Tillman saying that he went to "The University of Louisiana" is extra amusing because he went to Louisiana-Lafayette, which most people in Louisiana would probably agree is not "The University of Louisiana."
