    Well, at least it looks like a spear tip and not a bouquet of irises. But Panther fan, we end up looking like a copy of the Saints hats and that is something I'd prefer we stay away from.

    Ragin' Cajuns is our identity so let's make it a winner and go with it.

    This is the same as admitting defeat in the name battle.

    The hard truth some of us have to face is that we can not get to being known solely as "THE" UL and have a marketing department obsessed with a nickname.

    They can not co-exist.

    Where's the battle? Who's the opponent?

    I'm talking about our what's on our helmets and "Ragin' Cajuns" beats the heck out of a bouquet of irises.

    Am I correct that the Cajun flag appeared on ULs helmet before on the Saint's

    I know that it was close---but of course along with the "Geaux" deal guess what other school now has it out like crazy!!!!!!

    You know I really miss the red helmet with the double stripe. We need to get rid of the gaudy "Ragin Cajuns" flaming helmet.

    Your helmet might be the coolest cajun4ever...but at this point it might be a little trendy with the Saints success and all.

    The continuous change allows no form of tradition to exist. Do it once and then let it be. Do not allow any future changes, period!

    I'm with you. I HATE the continuous change!! Let's stay with what we currently have! SUBJECT CLOSED!

    Two reasons for this post.

    1) Doesn't look like any changes for this season so I updated for 2011.

    2) This info is also now located from the uniform button on the start page.

    As always, if you have a better copy of a photo or rendition I would love to update the list.

    Thanks

    Gay looking to say the least. But, but it is similar to Florida Gators sprawled across their helmets. Yea theirs suck too. Now Destin and I see all things Ragin Cajuns alike, but not so politics, life, food, I prefer goat, he prefers kangaroo, and I am for this flower to represent us. It has zero resemblance to the lean Saints FDL.

    Whitey Urban was hired by President Fletcher in 1960 as Athletic Director to elevate the overall athletic programs.

    Urban was a coach at Georgia Tech and protégé of Bobby Dodd.

    Dobb emphasized character and the student athlete as part of his coaching philosophy, and Georgia Tech wore gold helmets during that time period.

    President Fletcher wanted the Georgia Tech philosophy infused into all athletic programs, and the gold helmets were instituted.

    So I guess all the yellow crap being sold as UL gear is left over from that thinking. Whitey Urban killed UL basketball. Not a gold letter day at USL. President Fletcher threw Shipley under the bus, again not a gold letter day for the president.

    How did Urban kill basketball, and how did Fletcher throw Shipley under the bus?
    Interesting perspective.
    Thanks
    PS - the gold helmets were just used for a few years ... then changed to USL.

    I'm a huge fan of the Acadian flag and I thought I would like it on a helmet but looking at these, now I'm not so sure. This weekends helmets are great though!

    the ones we wore back in the day, circa early 70's didnt have the flag waving like the one in the snap chat. i think it would look better if it wasnt "waving"
