Oh no they didn’t! The college basketball world and the state of Ohio are still buzzing about No. 11 seed Dayton’s upset over No. 6 seed Ohio State on Thursday. Dayton — I’m sorry, THE University of Dayton — advanced to the third round of the tournament with a thrilling 60-59 win over the Buckeyes.
As many of you know, the official title of Ohio State is “The Ohio State University.” Dayton, like most other schools, is simply “University of Dayton.” But on Friday morning, the Dayton Daily News felt the Flyers had earned the right to tack on a “The.” Buckeye fans will probably disagree, but what are they going to say? Bragging rights are bragging rights.
