43 members on the board right now.
20 have Ragin and/or Cajun in their screen names.
Only 1 has UL or Louisiana.
What are we arguing about?
"Hook 'em Horns"
Bigger institutions than ours have marketed and built tradition around their logos/nicknames.
I'm guessing you'll soon be changing your screen name to "LouisianaT"
We'll start a petition to change the RCAF to....I don't know what, because the new acronym has the great potential to be pretty humiliating.
Turbine, I expect the page will soon be changed to "Louisiana Pagin'"
We used to look forward to celebrating 'the one and only' win every year.
My original thought wasn't to the branding, but how members on this board reference themselves.
My point was that most people (I'd say at least half) on the board identify with "Ragin'" and/or "Cajun" and I took the direction of the thread as a condemnation of those terms.
I'd venture to say our jerseys will continue to say "Louisiana". I'd venture to say there will still be a healthy selection of "Louisiana" shirts/jackets/mugs at Red Zone and Bell's. I'd venture to say the band will still transition into either of the "UL" formations during its half-time show.
Why fight the fight if you don't have the stomach for it. Its easier to give it up. Certainly not surprised, though.
Statement of the year: "You can be comfortable or courageous, but you can't be both."
