    Default ESPN

    Was listening to an ESPN interview on XM radio with the basketball coach at UW Green Bay. The introduction was something like this:

    UW Green Bay has decided to refer to themselves as just Green Bay. So, here is the head of Green Bay, Brian Wardle.

    I checked the UW Green Bay athletic website:

    Official Website of Green Bay Athletics


    Seems like ESPN is very arbitrary regarding how they want to refer to SOME schools. Just saying.

    If we would've had a consistent message for a reasonable amount of time (I'd like it to predate him, but being realistic, I'd settle for when T-Joe took over) and an SID that wasn't a jackhole to the network he was trying to get cooperation from, we wouldn't have our issue. It probably doesn't help much that we're weighted with both a big and little brother that aren't too keen on our efforts and a conference that only cares if tee times are set and they get their handouts from our bowl appearances.

    Going by ULM is more than enough.

    Coaches, fans, and media using "Monroe" BEGS for others to use Lafayette.

    ESPN was quick to change UWGB's name on their basketball page to Green Bay and GB for short. We're still U-Double L no matter what we do.

    I think there is an anti-UL person working in a key position somewhere at ESPN.

    Not unlike the Advocate.

    That's because the Phoenix don't have 5 other schools and state legislators calling ESPN to complain about it.

    That happens with media outlets, and is evidenced when something gets changed from the real brand.

    ESPN just does it wrong, so this is sign of an anti-UL insider.
