    Just for the record this is not the entire report. Also, I've been told that UL will retain the services of the consultants going forward.

    I hope it includes analysis of UL's previous "strategic five-year plan."

    I looked at the majority of the report and I think there are a lot of great things here. But you grab a sampling of RP'ers, put them in a room and have a focus group. They will tell you the same thing, just in a less formal way.

    We know what needs to be done... and we would have been a lot cheaper.

    I didn't read the whole thing, but if you scroll to the end they have feedback from schools like App State, Troy, Akron and ULM. Right after that, they have a few pages on our "branding" issues.

    Much to absorb in just the 'Branding' section, but so far this really sticks out to me:

    "LARC" as a 'ticker' instead of ULL. LARaginCajuns.

    After a cursory review, the obvious item that stood out to me was Student fees
    Ar. State generated $4,567,829
    Conference USA ( assume it was an average) $9,388,836

    I would rather ULA than LARC.

    Everyone does realize what the other LARC stands for right? I don't need to explain the level of jokes that would be made.

    This might be fun. Page 60, but not done reading yet.

    "Loved" the ULM interview. Could not find anyone with a little more Cajun game day experience from Monroe since 2008?

    Really? (starts page 74)

    Akron interview hit on the lack of coordination of pregame music. My pet peeve on game day. Think this kills the "electricity" the App State guy talked about? You bet.

    Don't like the pepper. I get what they're saying though. If the kids like it, they're our future fan base. We've not had a generational physical mascot in decades. If kids like it today, their kids may 20 years down the road.

    So we just paid these people to tell us we need to brand ourselves along with reversible contraception and mentally handicapped people.

    Geez. Some things never change.
