    Wonder if Boomer will boycott the team because our helmets say Lafayette?

    This should lock down usage of Lafayette as the schools name.

    I give the effort a 10 for intent, a 10 for motivation and a zero for branding.

    Unless of course your branding goal is Lafayette, then I give it a 20 on a scale of 1 to 10.

    Turbine the decal is going to be on the back of the helmet. Not the main decal on the helmet.

    I'm with you. The intent is commendable, but there is no doubt that it will have a negative effect on our efforts to establish "Louisiana" as our brand.

    It will have "zero" effect on establishing "Louisiana" as our brand. Do you really think the National media will look at the sticker and say, "see, they want to recognize Lafayette...". I think they will look at it for it's intended meaning.

    Absolutely not. Branding is more subtle than that.

    Our admin is trying to establish "Louisiana" as our brand?

    I agree, however I would think it's inappropriate for National media to look at the sticker and draw any conclusions other than the intended message.

    It tells me that for some, the branding issue is far more important.

    My bad, I don't have a problem with the overall recovery sentiment. It will help the psyche of many many people close to the tragedy

    In the big picture however, even though the shooting happened in Lafayette, I don't see it as a Lafayette thing.

    I see it as an insane mind thing.

    It's not about the insane mind, but the incredible unity and strength of the community. You cannot say enough good about this city, and the people.

    This has nothing to do with branding ... it has everything to do with community.

    Yes, who cares about the people killed and scared in Lafayette. "I" just want the branding of UL as Louisiana, F*#@ everything else......

    THIS--My pride in our city has overflowed in the past few weeks!! The great thing is the focus has been on US and NOT that f______ maggot!!
    Getting back to the helmet decals, given they'll be on the back I would think that they'll be seen for what they're meant to be-- a tribute to our city, NOT our "brand". jmo

    I know tragedy always gels a community but this tragedy had nothing to do with Lafayette being Lafayette and everything to do with Lafayette being in the unfortunate path of a vagrant insane mind.

    I also know Lafayette being Lafayette is what Lafayette Strong is all about.

    If I heard it correctly, I think that in the news conference HUD quickly referenced Acadiana after saying Lafayette

    I think that there can be very little doubt that HUD wants Louisiana, UL, or Ragin' Cajuns only!!!
