This type of nonsense wouldn't have happened had NCSU not obtained a ridiculously obscene settlement from Zach Gallaf....Galfinia....Golfinerei.....Goldstei......that fat guy with the beard.

Apparently someone forgot to tell them about the University of Nevada-Reno.

Already licensed by NC State (per the link)...

Wait. Nevada is the Wolf Pack, not the Wolfpack. That's completely different.

He actually went to NC State, so he's already covered.

And that hockey team in Hartford.

They renamed that team and gave it a terrible logo and branding.

I think I remember hearing Nevada changing from Wolfpack to Wolf Pack because NC State wanted them to do so.

The funny thing is... U of Nevada, Reno was founded before NC State

But NC State adopted the "Wolfpack" name in 1922, whereas Nevada didn't adopt the name until 1923 or later. Wikipedia says they were named the "Wolves" in 1923 but doesn't mention when it was changed to "Wolf Pack."

I'm not sure this is going to work, since I'm pretty sure the judge will say the word "Wolfpack" has passed into the public domain. Maybe they'd have better luck if they adopted the intentionally ironic spelling "Wulfpach" (a la "Syfy"). NC State is held in the least highest regard academically of the ACC North Carolina schools, right?

They should just go with this:

As an alum, I'd be interested to know the evidence behind this claim. We have a fantastic university, with a focus on science and research. As is always the case, it depends on what the student wants to study. Design? Engineering? Math and Physics? Veterinary Medicine? Textiles? NC State's easily the best school in the area for those subjects. Journalism? Business? Education? Pharmacy? Go to Chapel Hill. Law? Art history? Political Science? Maybe Wake Forest is best for you. Duke, of course, has its own areas of established expertise. As do all universities. It's all in what the individual wants and how much effort they are willing to put in. I've known brilliant people (and idiots) from each school.

Back on subject, this kinda bothers me. But then, where do we draw the line between "generic" nicknames and obviously unique ones? Surely we can all agree that "Seminoles" and "Demon Deacons" are clearly unique to their individual schools, while "Tigers" and "Wildcats" are so generic as to be insusceptible to trademark. Is "Wolfpack"? I'm not so sure.
