Georgia’s Thomas Davis and Louisiana-Lafayette’s Charles Tillman both added “The” as they introduced themselves as starters for the Panther’s game against the Eagles in a friendly jab at their Buckeye teammates.

The Ohio State University also came under attack from a Big Ten rival over the weekend, as someone from Penn State edited “The” out of the school’s Wikipedia page.
