5. Bwahaha. No way this is gonna get approved. Trademark-law doesn't work that way:

The only way "The Ohio State University" could get this approved would be if they could argue that the "The" keeps them from getting mistaken for another university.

For example, consider "Coca-Cola". The Coca-Cola company has trademarked these words written in that font. Yes, Ford uses the same font, BUT they use it for selling cars, not soft-drinks.
