Yup. There was actually a grad in my old neighborhood in the Philly suburbs because he used to fly a IUP flag from his porch. I had never heard of it.

I guess it’s like Philadelphia, Mississippi. Heard of it. Not the same.

I remember thinking the same thing when I got a recruiting "letter of interest" from them in high school.

Same with Oakland University (in Michigan). 8)

We played them in baseball several years back. I was baffled why all their players came from Michigan.

Well, I can see where two cities in different states could have the same name. And maybe even a city might have the same name as another state (Washington). But which came first--the city of Indiana or the state of Indiana? It's not like it's the name of a forefather.

The county in Pennsylvania appears to have come first, but they both (county and State) have the same source of their names (land of Indians)
Good thing we weren't as PC back then, IndigenousPeoplopolis doesn't have quite the same ring

I can think of several others, but they all have “City”in the name.
