    This is so COOL How to make a paper tiger lose his mind

    just ask a simple question


    since lsu's real name is louisiana state university agricultural and mechanical at baton rouge it would be logical to think that they should be the mighty LAMB's then
    but wait, lsu says no state school should shorten their name or it could cause confusion - makes one wonder doesn't it

    I always thought the best way was to ask him when did he graduate.

    The STATE University in Louisiana can so choose to call themselves what they want. The state says only the "regional" schools like yourselves have to include the letter, at "location", or use a regional Northwest or Southeast. I love how y'alls false attempt into missleading people into believing something your not was simply changing USL from a region, to U-L-L a city. LOL FAIL

    Then by you r logic that would make you a double regional guy since you claim you graduated from Lousiana Tech at Ruston (in keeping with your claim that the regional school must attach its location) and are a fan of the Chickenhawks. By the way, did you genuflect when you typed "STATE" since you seem to hold it in such reverence? That's just one more thing you have in common with the lady with the sign.

    Is name is Louisiana State University and A &M College, at Baton Rouge is not part of the official.

    Before you try to be a smart ___, why don't you try to be smart first and know what you are talking about.

    The graduation rate at LSU is 60%.

    At UL it is 40%. Do you really want to throw out graduation jokes?

    YES.

    I have nothing but respect for alumni of schools they support. I work with alot of LSU alumni and a very good friend of mine is an LSU alum.

    I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THEM.

    They aren't "paper tigers".

    Paper tigers are the ones who have never stepped foot in a classroom at LSU, but choose to bask in LSU's reflected glow.

    So, yes. I'm talking about people who did not graduate from LSU, and probably didn't graduate from any other college either.

    Ms. Math Major... pay attention... the comment was on the number of non LSU graduates that make up their fanbase. It's far more "impressive" than your graduation rate "joke".

    Damn, do I have to chase you around this forum and put you back in your crib every day?

    lighten up francis, this is supposed to be a light thread.
    Also many not familiar with our university forget or never have been enlightened that many peoples reason for using the UL is that the name was legally changed in 1984 and then after the name change did the legislature force the name to be changed back under pressure from another schools alumni. The legislature then enacted the assinine law where at least 2 schools had to change to UL of thinking that no two schools would ever agree. Of course this just cemented the state in the eyes of many as ignorant enacting a law that was totally different than 48 other states that had state and university of for school names

    Not everyone had the opportunity to enjoy the college life, get their degree, or set foot in as many classrooms as a lot of us did. I don't think we get to tell those who didn't have our good fortune who they can be a fan of or how much basking they can do. imo

    You're not getting it... but I believe you are doing so intentionally in order to defend the barnacles this thread is shining a light on.

    The point is not about the luxury (or hard work) not opportuned certain people. The thread titile is indicting the false superiority displayed over people who actually graduated from the other universities in Louisiana... by people who are simply a fan of a behemoth athletic program... but are not a graduate of that or probably any institution.

    I don't think anyone is telling them what to be a fan of. However, when they start flapping their jaws, they need to come clean about whether they ever attended the university or are a graduate. 99 out of 100 LSU graduates don't have a clue about how good (or not) the educational opportunities are at UL... but I damn sure know that the "paper tigers" this thread is referencing do not have a clue about higher education at all, and have no hope of ever being beyond clueless. If you were on the other end of their ignorant stick, you would certainly take a different point of view. Because you appear to be educated... and defensive of LSU... you need to just keep out of it.

    Sorry if that last post sounded harsh. I think you are only trying to be kind to people who enjoy being a fan but are not college graduates. There is nothing wrong with people enjoying and/or basking in whatever they choose... but I stand behind my point of them deserving to be choked off when they start making any desperaging remarks toward other instate institutions. When that starts... they deserve all the humiliation that can be served back at them... especially in this particular state.
