NC State Questioning Use of "Wolfpack" by Loyola (N.O.)

Recommended Posts

That's a ridiculous goal on NC State's part. "Wolfpack" is hardly a unique name like "Blue Devils," "Seminoles" or "Buckeyes."

Are they going to reach an agreement with the History Channel every time they mention German submarine tactics in World War II?

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

And that hockey team in Hartford.

Story B: Red Wings go undefeated and score 100 goals in every game. They also beat a team comprised of Godzilla, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, 2 Power Rangers and Betty White. Oh, and they played in the middle of Iraq on a military base. In the sand. With no ice. Santa gave them special sand-skates that allowed them to play in shorts and t-shirts in 115 degree weather. Jesus, Zeus and Buddha watched from the sidelines and ate cotton candy.

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.

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.

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:

Wolpfack? Is the person who designed that from New England?

You can win this, Loyola. You can be the Wolfpack too. Don't let mean old NC State get you down. Don't give up. Don't ever give up.

♫ oh yeah, board goes on, long after the thrill of postin' is gone ♫

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.
