    Agreed. And there are other places that support UL that can get my business.

    I disagree with this. And I'll use this to make my point. The little Exxon with the Subway in Henderson used to only have LSU gear in it. I don't even recall seeing anything UL four, six, or ten years ago. Now you go in there & it's like 50/50 or pretty close. Now keep in mind, that station is on the LSU fan travelling to Baton rouge side of the road. And those guys are absolutely driven by one thing. And that's money. UL has made major strides in the whole area. They just need to keep their foot on the pedal across the board. I'd imagine any customers of that place who came in & reminded the ownership of hey, how about some UL love would go pretty far these days.

    Nope. They've been running this ad since the beginning of the season. I will not set foot in that store anymore. I used to buy the majority of my tailgate and household meats there. There are plenty of other meat markets in Broussard/Youngsville area that I frequent now.

    I might have to start going back to your old stomping grounds, Penny Saver on Moss St and get those 1/2 weiner hot dogs for .30 cents a piece. I know you used to walk out with $2 worth. Haha

    I don't know . . .

    10 easy to find, hard selling, retailers will make the U far more money short and long term, than traveling to the company store ever could dream of.

    Of there is always the Tesla model.

    Check the garment tags. The tag will confirm whether it is a licensed product or not. If it is then the school is getting is license fee plus a percentage of the sale. If it isnt licensed then the school GETS NOTHING. If the 10 easy to find hard selling retailers are not selling licensed products then dont buy from them, go to the Red Zone if you want to help the university.
