TMZ.com is reporting that Bellamy is seeking a trademark for the phrase he screamed at the Heisman Trophy winner with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Bellamy explained his use of the words after the double-overtime, 54-48 win over the Sooners in the College Football Playoff semifinals when he spoke with ESPN.com’s Arash Markazi.
“All I’m saying is humble yourself,” Bellamy said. “All the flamboyancy … I carry myself the same way, but humble yourself, man.
“Our wide receivers came back and told us that they were running their routes before we went out there and he was on their line. Just humble yourself, man, just humble yourself. You’re not built like that.”
Bellamy ended his career at Georgia on Monday when the Bulldogs lost 26-23 in overtime of the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. The outside linebacker had three tackles and a sack and a half against the Crimson Tide.
With any luck, by this time next year, you’ll be able to wear “Humble Yourself” hats and t-shirts with a part of the profits going to Bellamy – and that’s something to brag about.
