Well, change the capitalization, and there are several universities that might be correctly described as "an Ohio state university"--Cleveland State U., U. of Akron, Youngstown State U., Kent State U., U. of Toledo, Bowling Green State U., Wright State U., Central State U., Miami U., U. of Cincinnati, Shawnee State U., Ohio U., as well as Ohio State.
