Actually I have seen NFL HBCU football players doing this years ago after PWI players started doing it.  Of course, Jackson Stank has taken it to a different level and will probably soon claim they invented the saying. :shrug: :tiptoe:

The only school I knew of that did it religiously was Ohio State. As it’s actually written that was in the constitution as The Ohio State University.

Former Lincoln University president Robert R. Jennings in 2012 tried to market "The Lincoln University" to differentiate between Lincoln Pa (1853) and Lincoln Mo (1866).
