    Well, the school IS named University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette. Just like ULM IS University of Louisiana at Monroe. There is no difference and that is what the state of Louisiana calls them as well.

    Louisiana-Lafayette is not a legal reference or name and is not used by the state or the University, that's what he is referring to. Why don't you go back to LS-BR.

    The State actually does LEGALLY require UL-Lafayette to be named UL-Lafayette. Apparently some ULL fans don't know or intentionally ignore reality. Even the ULM bunch is fed up with ULL's craziness.

    It doesn't matter what the "State" calls them in legal documents, no sane writer is ever obliged to use a legal name as an every reference for any entity.

    Do you say I'm going do my shopping at "Wal-Mart Stores, Inc." or worse yet "Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Store #1642?

    True if you are talking to a confused person you always have the option of drilling down but to use full nomenclature when the subjects are known is the height of silliness.

    That article has no credibility, it uses a hyphen to make its point when the State specifically says items 'like' hyphens are not allowed in the full legal name.

    For those of us who dislike the way the advocate refers to our school,have you seen the advertiser lately? They have been Lafayetteing us everyday. Case in point today's front page. I think it's coming from Martin hall if you don't believe me go to the red zone and look at the new stuff they are bringing in.

    There are definitely some uncreative "UL" haters at Martin Hall.

    Why are you concerned with this? Because you are scared ____less over what is happening here. We are using an acronym....Louisiana Ragin Cajuns to refer to our Athletic teams. This has nothing at all to do with the official, proper name of our University which is The University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette. LSUA&M at Baton Rouge is the Official, formal name of what is referred to as the acronym 'LSU'. that's all. We by law cannot put "Louisiana" at the top of our Diploma. You, by law cannot put 'LSU". Now go sit in your little high and mighty corner and play with yourself. You guys are good at that.

    Apparently you are under the mistaken delusion that we give a crap what you or ULMost fans think.

    You are correct University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette is our legal name. But that does not mean we have to use ULL in any way. ul is not a legal name. I don't understand why people filled with jealousy act like we invented this. Here is a short list of at's that use 2 letters to identify themselves. @ Reno, @ Berkley, @Madison, @ Knoxville.... All these schools are officially University of ______ at_______. Now go find something better to do with your time because you are wasting it here

    The irony in this post is that if you were to go to Monroe and call UL-Monroe by that name rather than ULM, they would get upset even though it is a legal name. If you want to come here and tell everybody what our place is and debate why we wish to be called UL versus what you feel we should be called, don't use the "legal" card as that is not really relevant in the world of collegiate athletics where numerous universities use shortened, preferred Acronyms for their school versus the spelled out "legal" forms.

    Give this Paper Tiger a gold ____ing star. Listen up short-bus...we know what the ____ we can or can't be called. You are not breaking any new ground...all you are doing is wasting your precious 7 on 7 off time. Don't be that guy.

    Just leave this twat alone, guys. Good lord, stop getting all riled up when a troll comes on here trying to drop some "knowledge" on us. These people are morons, just point and laugh at them then move on.
