    And since that outside group is using our university facilities wouldn't you think they are in contact with the university coordinating this event? They got the date right but we shouldn't expect them to get the name right?

    Change is slow, which I suppose is why there are so few strong leaders. Most everyone wants it yesterday.

    Anyway, when I was at USL, we brought in major, major bands for concerts. (I wasn't into rock music, but I did see America live.) It got us so much attention that one national publication listed us as "Blackham University."

    We're winning the war. The fans on the inside complain we're moving too slow.

    But then, the schools on the outside complain we're moving too fast...

    Absolutely, I expect that group to get the name and date right. However, I wouldn't expect us to micromanage it either. Besides, even if it were the university's responsibility that every group who has some affiliation with us put the correct name in their literature, how is that the marketing department's failure?

    America...how apt. We are the horse with no name...or not one we want anyway. And you could call our journey back to relevance as a journey through a desert. I always preferred Ventura Highway.

    Shouldn't marketing ensure that every event have an information packet about the University including its proper name. I'm not even talking about our preferred use of Louisiana (although I think that is what they should push) but certainly the current name and not one that was changed almost three decades ago. If that doesn't fall under the auspices of Marketing then someone in the admin needs to be responsible.

    Yes it should, however, how can they be made responsible if some outside random group chooses or decides to not use it in their literature?

    I'd bet a fairly modest sum that the author did that on purpose.........

    Because it's their responsibility to correct that group. Any other successful entity would ensure their brand is protected and promoted correctly. Instead we repeatedly get instances of our name being spelled incorrectly (Rajin Cajuns), confused with a college in Pennsylvania and now this. It's time to stop excusing this incompetence.

    Short of actually going to every printer in the world and proofreading every project that MIGHT have our name on it, how exactly do you propose that this is done? Make this group destroy every flyer and print it again at its own expense? Yeah, that's going to work.

    It's not a matter of excusing anything. Blame the administration for agreeing to the UL-L debacle all you want. Blame this group for putting USL in small type on its own promotional material. This kind of thing happens all the time. To other schools, too! We're not the only ones.

    Yea, I would tell them to reprint the flyer at their expense. Or find another facility.

    Maybe we should continue to schedule Southern as our FCS opponent rather than others that refuse to do so.

    Is it too early for a look-a-like thread?
