We gotta keep up the fight though.
I was there in 1984. I saw the whole thing unfold.
(It is this story I summarize when folks here in St Tammany Parish ask, "why do you hate LSU so much...?")
One day - and I hope to see it -- we win this fight.
BUT - as many have said -- it does not help when our own Pres, AD, SID, cannot even get it right and capitulate when their voices are needed most.
Yes the North will fall last, they absolutely want to keep us the equivalent of ULMost and LTU-R.
I still buy Louisiana gear only. I only refer to is as Louisiana. I do my share of explaining to others.
The difference is, I simply won't fall over myself trying to demand people use our preferred term. It's just not worth looking like a small-time fool to me. If our leaders backed the cause, I'd be one of the most vocal soldiers in the fight. But they don't, so..
I don't buy either of them and read every article
Those that refuse to read the advocate are just missing good coverage. That's all.
The word obtuse comes to mind.
I read the Adv. and the Adv.
"maybe it is time for Lafayette to let the Baton Rouge paper know that if it wants to do continue doing business in Lafayette, it needs to respect our university. I am tired of the slap in the face we get from them every day and everyone says "That's OK. Thanks for the great articles." Lafayette is our town and UL is our university. Time to give us our due respect."
Thank you sir for the great article, and the insult. Can I have another??
More than half our graduates slap us in the face multiple times a day.
I think if we could transport ourselves to almost any mid-major in the country and experience their coverage, we'd run back to Luke AND Buckley in a heartbeat.
How's Tulane's coverage nowadays?
We were the first softball team to broadcast every game in a season in this entire country.
Not first mid-major.
I'm thankful for any coverage of our team.
It's disrespectful not to call us by our name, but Luke doesn't have the say-so. And he's one of the best.
We had Josh Parrot here for a while, whose research and info took a back seat to no one.
How many mid-majors have a 2 hour pregame show and 2 hour postgame on Tuesday night to hear drunk-___ Cajuns spouting off about the coach having a pretty wife?
Very thankful for the coverage here.
The guys in the my office and labs know "Louisiana Ragin Cajuns". I heard ULL one time and I laid down the law.
Have balls, get respect!
I am a subscriber to and appreciate reading the Advertiser's coverage of...THE University of Louisiana Ragin Cajuns.
