Last year, Hud wore a lot of Louisiana gear, so someone was producing it and I was hopeful of being able to purchase it. This year, he wore nothing but Ragin Cajuns gear and there is no Louisoana gear anywhere in sight. That was the first I ever heard about the FDL needing to have a UL Lafayette along with it. This is why I brought this up, to get a clearer understanding of what can and cannot be produced and why we don't see more of the gear we want to see offered.
    The CLC is the Collegiate Licensing Company. In a nutshell, they are the middleman between every university and the vendors that produce that university's merchandise. The vendor has to go through the proper channels to be able to produce officially licensed merchandise on behalf of that university and must abide by the rules that the CLC lays out.

    Here are the primary marks that don't need any other reference, as it relates to athletic merchandise:
    [*]Circle Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns
    [*]Circle Ragin' Cajuns
    [*]Stacked Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns
    [*]Stacked Ragin' Cajuns
    [*]Curved Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns with pepper in the middle
    [*]UL Lafayette


    The Cajuns Fleur-de-lis and the Pepper may not be used as a primary mark unless there is another reference to the university somewhere. For instance, I own an Under Armour pullover with the Fleur-de-lis on the main left chest, and the Ragin' Cajuns logo on the left arm, near the wrist - there is your secondary mention.

    With that said, I'm not familiar with the University's relationship with the CLC directly. They may be able to produce special merchandise for the coaches or team that isn't available for purchase to the public. For example, I don't see that the LOUISIANA reference by itself (without Ragin Cajuns tied to it) is available for vendors to use. That may be part of a special relationship that the University has.

    Better yet...

    Sometimes people [topics] just die.
    Not today.

    I don't think people care as much as the die-hard fans on RP. But ULL is still our name. Until we get it changed (which might be a while from now), I don't see a problem with that.

    Acronyms are not names unless the applicable party claims the acronym as its name.

    AI is not Apple Inc.'s name.

    In the current case ULL has been officially disavowed.

    I did my part today. Some guy at the golf course today saw my RaginCajun hat and congratulated me on ULL's win. Naturally, I sternly corrected him and then accused him of being a Walmart LSU fan. He seemed perplexed by the exchange, but I felt pretty good about it.
