    Default Louisiana Jerseys

    So I guess we dropped Louisiana from our basketball uniforms? That sucks.

    I saw that in the pictures from the Louisiana College game. It could have to do with the new jerseys. Let's just hope they have "Louisiana" jerseys also.

    Beating the name drum constantly ranks right along side claiming refs have it out for a given team. If you're passionate about either, become an advocate for the name fight somewhere the battle needs to be fought, we're all aware here. And if you don't like the refs, go out and become one so you can show them how it's done. Plenty of folks here on this site can hook you up with an LHSAA official. Plenty of teams would love expert officials...ask most losing teams' fan base in amateur sports, it's always the ref's fault. They're waiting....

    Don't all but ONE football jersey have Louisiana on them? Don't all but ONE basketball jersey have Lousiana on them? Don't MOST baseball and softball jerseys have Louisiana on them? Don't our cross country/track and field singlets have Louisiana on them? Don't the volleyball jerseys have Louisiana on them?

    Jeeeez

    It's an issue that's more important than athletics.

    Despite the name issue being more important than athletics to some, I don' t believe the discussions on this board do much to advance the cause. I think that is why some get frustrated at what they consider an overemphasis on it. For example this thread started on the Tulsa game last night. Name on the uniform would not have helped the players handle the ball better. Only way to advance the name cause is for the administration to be more aggressive in seizing it. They appear to have retreated on that front and if they have it is likely for political reasons.

    Of course the discussions don't help our defensive secondary tackle better or our point guards to have less turnovers. I do think that it is better that we defeated ULM this Saturday as UL Lafayette than it would have been to lose to them as Louisiana. Folks who have the name as a focus may not agree with me. If you do not, it is understandable as everyone has different priorities. I would like you to answer the question as whether you prefer a win as UL Lafayette vs a loss as Louisiana. To me, winner is always the most important name you can achieve.

    ---I am wondering why at times we are called Louisiana at the start of some athletic contests on TV and later in the game get the Lafayette (last night for example)

    I have heard that it is the result of E-mails being sent--Think this is true????

    The 'Name Thing" IS IN FACT one of the most important things we can talk about on this Board.
    Why this Board? Why talk about it?
    Because it is the only place we can vent and speak with like-minded folks who understand our issue.
    I was at USL in 1984.
    I know a friend who still has his U of L diploma....

    This is such a big issue to me -- no kidding -- I would vote for a gubernatorial candidate who was otherwise a communist across the board but verifiably PROMISED to change that stupid 1984 law and kill the @ Lafayette.

    This name change would certainly HELP:
    recruiting for all sports
    scheduling for all sports
    bowls for football
    and a NEW conference.

    So - in my opinion - LONG TERM, SUSTAINED WINNING is closely intertwined with the "name issue."

    We easily have a 5K more at our football games than what we report. I counted them.

    It's too important of an issue to let go or not talk about, or to ease off from mentioning just because people are tired of it. It has nothing to do with which name you want to lose with. I don't want to lose period. Trying to deflect the issue into winning and losing just undermines the real importance of why this university should and one day will be called The University of Louisiana. Mentioning the lack of focus with the UL administration and identifying a trend, does in no way, take away from how the team won or lost a game or how they played. Berating people that are trying to make a difference or fighting for this or even mentioning it, will not make this go away either. Those that don't understand the importance of this issue would be the first ones praising it when it becomes reality on a national basis.

    So what else are you doing about it besides talking about it on this board where everyone agrees with you is the point I think he was trying to make. I'm not trying to be rude about it, but it's kinda preaching to the choir on here. Pretty sure everyone on here wants to win the name battle and uses the name we all want daily.
