    Its a 1984 fight I guess I am still fighting and thought we all were in it!!!

    We were.. Fought hard, almost daily.. Until our OWN administration, PRESIDENT, and SID sold us out and caved in to ULM, the belt and media.

    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.
    ......Sigh.......

    Man you guys are some strange. We will win this war, but it will not be won in Louisiana first, the other forty nine states first then Louisiana will fall last, and then in the final skirmishes Baton Rouge, MoanROW, and Shreveport.

    Yes the North will fall last, they absolutely want to keep us the equivalent of ULMost and LTU-R.

    I haven't given up.
    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..

    Please explain.. I'm not trying to be an ___. I really want to know the facts. I've personally never heard T-Joe or Scott say publicly (in an official manner) that we want to be known as Louisiana of the University of Louisiana when it comes to athletics. Maybe I missed it?

    I don't subscribe to the Advocate for that reason. I don't subscribe to the Advertiser because they reneged on their pledge to use Louisiana first reference. You don't have to pay people who don't respect you.

    Those that refuse to read the advocate are just missing good coverage. That's all.

    The word obtuse comes to mind.

    I don't think it is tremendously better. We get an article a day, maybe two. Look at the Advertiser for Gameday. No comparison. I like Buckley's articles. Might be a misspelled word every now and then an an occasional fact misstatement. But, I will take that for the UL and Louisiana reference and because it is our hometown newspaper. I like Lukes's articles and he is a good writer. But, 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.

    I agree. Luke is the better writer, but coverage overall is better in the D.A. Plus, I could not agree more with this, and it is worth repeating:

    "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.

    Thank you sir for the great article, and the insult. Can I have another??

    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.

    First, period.

    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!

    No one is critizing Luke. It's his newspaper we have a beef with.
