    Quit fighting Hammer on this. It's ignorant to believe everyone in our fan base should have a perfectly packaged similar response to this ESPN name mauling. The announcers are the ones rambling through these alternate name choices, by the way. The ___ clown that called us Lafayette the entire halftime show isn't following the script put down by ESPN management and Karl Benson either. We are football fans. They expect us to have a sack.

    Where should we focus our efforts? T-Joe. But, we should also hit every angle and raise the temperature in the room. Let Hammer do his thing and you do yours. Good cop, bad cop.

    And, in every war, there's a General Patton and a Jane Fonda. Patton uses a tank to do his negotiating. Jane uses apologies. By the way, you were hot in Barbarella!

    Looks like the squeaking got some grease. Announcer on TSUSM - Gast broadcast was reading the on-screen graphic of the remaining SBC broadcast schedule. When he got to the last one which said "UL-Monroe at UL-Lafayette" he hesitated noticeably from the pace he had been reading and then finally said "UL Monroe at the Ragin Cajuns"

    No other University in the Country is going through this...no one. There is NO flagship University in the University of Nevada System....University of Nevada at Las Vegas has branded itself as UNLV for decades....everyone accepts this....the University of Nevada at Reno about a decade ago decided to brand itself Athletically as the Nevada Wolf pack...perfectly acceptable to everyone.....when you read or hear in the Nevada Media about anything concerning academics at the University it is always referred to as Nevada-Reno....about a decade ago, LA-Mon decided that it wanted to brand itself as Louisiana in Athletics...no one gave a s*** and it failed miserably....now we step up to the plate and officially decide to brand ourselves as the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns and a cat 5 **** storm ensues...why...because they are scared S***less and jealous as hell.....It seems that it is fine for UL to bend over and grab its ankles once again and let the powers that be in Monroe run over us.....but oh no...don't fight...we might upset someone.....enough.....time to fight for what is ours....

    Probably not. But I have never seen a school like LAMOANROE risk their brand to hurt another schools brand. They have wins over Bama and Arkansas, yet they are still losing money and hurting, and decide to attack the Cajuns rather than taking control of their own destiny.

    ULM's 'Louisiana' initiative failed the first time because UL was already branded as "Louisiana's" now the apostrophe s was unnecessary and was dropped.

    Side note, it may have been because of Jerry Tark but I always had a higher perception of UNLV over Nevada.

    In the end it takes an accurate name and more importantly winning.

    As someone who actually spent time at University of Nevada, Reno... This is 100% correct. It baffles me that we face this headache at UL when Nevada figured it out without issue.

    Not so fast my friend, UNR is definitely superior to UNLV. Just like UL is superior to Monroe Community College...lol

    There has always been at attitude in this state of "if I can't get ahead I will try to keep you down". This is seen as a play for "Flagship" status by others inside of our system.....I believe that no one will ever be declared the flagship University inside of this system one reason being LSU will fight tooth and nail to keep the word "flagship" away from any other University in the State.... Using the acronym "Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns" is completely legal as was the term "Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns"...all that we have done is make the acronym cleaner by dropping the 's. We are doing with our athletic branding exactly what Nevada-Reno did....

    You see, THIS is what the HOAX fans don't get. If they want espn-Bristol to force the city designation on us, then it WILL be forced on them too. Thus, thwarting their own branding effort as ULM. They don't want the City designation any more than us, but they'll tolerate it to keep us from branding as Louisiana.
