It’s a great world. Players can’t make a nickel off their names or likenesses, but coaches and schools can seemingly trademark anything they can think of for a buck.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has trademarked his name and has a deal with Clemson’s licensing program to sell merchandise that bears his name. Ohio State is in the process of trademarking coach Urban Meyer’s name and the phrase “Urban Meyer Knows.”
I wonder if Corrine Brown has trademarked “Corch” yet.
All I know is this one’s mine. Keep your hands off, Tim.
