    I think the thing people dont realize is that the majority of the state is like me. I have lsu football season tickets since 2000. I attend alot of lsu baseball games too. But guess what I have been to alot of cajun football games and often both schools on the same day when lsu plays at the dreaded morning kickoff. I enjoy following both and listen to 1420 am most of the day and love hearing Jay Walker call a game I dont hate anybody I pull for both now if they play each oyher I am for lsu but if lsu is not in the game I go for the cajuns I dont care what they are ul, ull, louisiana I just enjoy sports and in state sports. I think when you hear the hatred its a smaller group than you think on this site and tigerdroppings its grouped as all lsu fans say this.....no they dont its the 50 people on that site posting dumb crap and same thing on here most people are neutral. Guess what? I graduated from Nicholls and even played ball there a few years but it isnt nearlly as exciting as cajun and lsu games are. Everybody doesnt have so much hatred as it seems reading a messgae board.

    As we keep winning, more and more come out of the woodworks. Take a stroll over to KATC's facebook page. As the threat becomes larger, the true side of those fans breaks thru. You sir, if this post is genuine, are quickly becoming the minority.

    My post is genuine. But I know alot of people who are like me. I also know people who hate ul and who hate lsu and those groups are extremely ugly about it. The people I know who like both is the majority remember those who post on social media feel the strongest neutral people dont want the argument.

    The majority is certainly silent.

    There are two types, readers who never register and registered who rarely post.

    On just the first type they often (any given moment) outnumber registered 5-to-1
    The silent majority on RP often out numbers

    Haha I love this guy. "school down the road for people who didn't have the grades to get into LSU." Lsu hasn't had anything remotely special about academics in about 25 years. It has fallen behind UL so bad that y'all have to try and keep up with our admission standards.

    You must feel really cool that you donate 15% of your worthless salary to TAF just so you can "be in the know", but in retrospect you don't do anything for the program.

    Now go on, retort back with one of your snarky elitist jag off statements to make us feel like we're under you.

    I'm all ears, you miserable cumstain on a spec of dust.

    As someone who went to both schools and has a degree from both schools, I will tell you LSU was no harder to prepare for than UL and in fact, I felt that I got a better education at UL by a longshot over LSU. Quite frankly, LSU was highly overrated for the college experience and I had a lot more fun at UL and met a lot more people at UL than I did in my time at LSU.

    lsua&m's total existence is because of state gov. dollars. Take that away and see them shrivel up.

    So even a tigger douchebag like Earl admits they did. Face it LSUA&MC wouldn't be where it is without Huey showering it with taxpayer dollars and his political muscle. And it continues to this day even if athletics now financially self sustaining.

    Earl, the truth is until TAF was fully functional in 1986 and a few years afterwards LSU sucked on the tit for state dollars for almost 100 years! Some of you are pretty ignorant when it comes to when LSU athletics actually became self-sustaining.

    That's because most of those bandwagon bytches weren't fans until after the 2001 season.

    Where can I find a UL hat?? We are in Moanroe and try to always proudly represent our Cajuns. Hubby lost his favorite hat and I am having trouble finding a replacement online.

    My favorite LSU Sports foundation money was the Coca-Cola (soft drink tax) of the 20's and beyond.

    Simultaneous to this silver spoon, UL had to return every years sports funding back over to the State ($50G in the 1940's) plus any gate receipts above the funding that was garnered during the course of the season.

    The State made a killing off of UL back then.

    UL had the National heavyweight boxing champ and #2 team. Selling out boxing matches with 2 or 3 thousand on attendance was the norm, all the money from which went back to the State.

    The irony of it all was if you bought a soda at a UL sporting event way back when, ... LSU sports made money.

    This thread has become so enlightening.

    The vast majority of people in the Lafayette area support both schools. The local media & retailers can verify this. There is a minority of UL people that hate LSU for one reason or another & they tend to gather on raginpagin.com. There are also a smaller minority of people that have ill will toward UL, but it's usually a result of that zealot friend and/or family member always hating on LSU.

    I am certain someone will point out the reason they hate LSU is because of their "fans", which is a popular excuse. Many LSU fans commonly say they hate Alabama because of their "fans". In actuality, fans are envious of the other schools success & don't care to be reminded of it by the opposing schools supporters, "bandwagon" or not. Unfortunately, winning brings out arrogance in people no matter who you support & is not exclusive to LSU supporters regardless of how some of you expect us to believe. Also, the fact that LSU is recognized as the state's only major university & draws statewide support, including in Lafayette, is a source of contempt by a few UL die hard fans.

    It seems that a few of you think the so called LSU "bandwagon" fans will jump ship the more success UL athletics experiences. While many local fans who are LSU fans will attend UL sporting events, it's nave to think they will suddenly become loyal UL fans & ditch LSU all together. Realistically, these local "bandwagon" fans will follow both schools' athletic teams as they experience success. They will gravitate to whoever is having a great season.

    Geaux Cajuns!

    I'm a ULL graduate and I couldn't possibly be more tired of this dumb@ss name thing. I understand you want us to be called Louisiana or UL. And I truly don't care if you use that name or ULL or ragin cajuns or bulldogs or whatever makes you feel better. But it just makes us look so stupid and whiny when there's a huge temper tantrum pitched every time somebody actually uses the legal name of the university. I would understand if someone refused to stop calling us USL, but come on guys, the actual legal name of the university is the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette. Is it really necessary to stomp your feet and pout every time someone calls us by the actual name of the university. For all the boasting about Louisiana being all over the field and uniforms, if you look closely, it has to say Lafayette in fine print underneath, as it is literally illegal for the university to brand it's name without it. It's almost like some fans think if you just say the name enough, it won't matter that it's not actually the name. Just get over it, call it whatever you want to call it, and stop whining like an immature child when other people use the actual name. I promise you if and when we win the national championship in sports, the respect you want will come and people will start calling you whatever you like. Until then, our fan base as a whole just looks like a bunch of babies crying over a stupid name.

    You use a lot of "us" and "we" in this. I don't think that means what you think it means.

    At different times it generally meant either UL alumni or the UL fan base. What's your point?

    That's a lot of words to say you dont care.

    If you really didn't care you'd have stopped at your third sentence fragment.

    Or better yet, not posted at all.

    Good day sir.
