    Refineryville A&M has been doing it for years.

    Saw some Alabama folk doing it this year.

    The funny thing is when THEY question OUR use of the fleur de lis and when we paid tribute to George Rodrigue.

    I was thoroughly disgusted that no mention was made of the fact that Rodrigue was a UL alum during the ceremonies honoring him at the Bowl.

    This is still not as bad as the Shreveport commercial during the Ibowl inviting tourists to go visit the Cajun Culture there.

    LOL!!! I guess that's better than promoting the Dogtrot House in Dubac, the trash strewn Bonnie and Clyde ambush site or the off road backwoods dogfights. "Visit Shreveport...You sure have a purty mouf."

    Those who have little identity of their own tend to borrow from those who do. See Baton Rouge.

    I'm afraid the perception is that we are the ones who are copying LSU. Much like Florida's Swamp which is something we had before them, but again no one knows that.

    Or listening to their band still copy FSU and their fans doing a stereotyped caricature Indian chant and a tomahawk chop.

    People are ignorant. Baton Rouge is not in Acadiana. It is basically white bread America, just like the unoriginal tiger mascot. They insulted Cajuns for years, but when it became "cool" to use Cajun words they jumped on it.

    We need a French speaking announcer at all our games. Bilingual announcements at all games. I can guarantee they would not try to steal that from us. It would mean absolutely nothing to them.

    I agree 100%

    And to Boomers point, Louisiana has EspanoLA roots though not as deep.

    What needs to happen is for Louisiana to claim the Sports Mantle as "North America's Team."

    Adding French and Spanish broadcasters will lock it down. To start they can be released in podcast form, then graduate to streaming as sponsors come on board.

    "Ragin' Cajuns, North Americas Team"
