    But legally anything coming out of Martin Hall can't have UL or Louisiana on it. So it's not going to change. And media outlets across the nation have heard our side of the story and decided they didn't agree with us.

    10 years ago, we decided that we could adopt the new name, quietly drop at Lafayette from it, and expect everyone to follow suit. Well, this strategy hasn't worked.

    We can't keep doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. We need a new strategy.

    You are only half right.

    Martin Hall has chosen to bury Louisiana and bloat Lafayette into an every utterance phrase.

    You can't say the strategy hasn't worked, it hasn't even been tried.

    I agree undoing 12-years in one is not an easy task.

    Martin Hall has been a problem for our athletic program advancement for over 30 years. Only in the past couple years are we starting to see where they seem to be interested in the program progressing.

    I know, no flagships, but what's wrong with being a Leader.

    Why not? We need to get the law changed.

    This from the Universities website.

    http://www.louisiana.edu/about-us/me...iversitys-name

    Proper Use of the University's Name

    University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette® has been the formal and official name of the University since 1999. Please use it in first reference to the University in text. UL Lafayette may be used as an abbreviation to refer to the University when clarification is necessary.
    Inaccurate References

    Do not refer to the University as ULL in any instance.
    Do not use the terms Lafayette or U of L, as they denote other institutions.

    Athletics Nickname

    Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns® is the nickname of the University's athletic teams. Teams also may be referred to using shorter versions of that nickname. In most cases, Ragin' Cajuns plural is proper, though Ragin' Cajun in the singular form can apply.

    Please include a registered symbol (®) as a subscript for the first reference of the terms University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette® and Ragin' Cajuns® in text. The registered symbol must appear in every use of the logos.
    Unacceptable Styles

    Laf or L (instead of Lafayette), La or LA (instead of Louisiana)
    Hyphens or commas in the name, abbreviation, or nickname
    Ragin Cajuns (without the apostrophe)
    Lady Cajuns (former name of the women's teams)

    Logos and Name Use

    All uses of the University's name, department names, nicknames, logos and visual marks (including the Ragin' Cajuns® family of marks) or any likenesses, including but not limited to advertising, stationery, websites, cobranding, facilities or apparel, must be approved by the Office of Communications and Marketing.

    Internal uses of the University's name for academic or educational purposes, such as syllabi or course materials, do not need to be approved by Communications and Marketing.
