    No one is prohibited from using the term "UL" except for the school, it does not mean the media (local or national) can't use it. This also does not mean that the school can not push to have the term used by the media and fans.

    There is a case in the legislature that says common law trumps state law.

    I agree on all these fronts, but the situation is that the Sunbelt, nor anyone in the media will use the term UL, When is the last time you saw ESPN or any other network consistently use UL. They don't, they come out with there own acronym, then we get UL-LAF, LA-LAF, etc.

    It's time for a change, if we are trying to become Louisiana then we need to abbreviate Louisiana, or use an acronym for Louisiana.

    I have gotten to the point where I don't care how they do it LOU, LOUIS, LA, LOUANA, ISIANA, ANA, but we got to do something.

    Not arguing this...just arguing the "breaking the law" statement..the school has not broken any law.

    There are funds available. It's up to our administration to use creative ways of using them.

    In regards to your comment about a gamble, any investment is considered a gamble. The key is to have the connicks to pull the trigger and follow through on your decision. The pros far outweigh the cons on this one.

    My offer is still out there once I stop this paid gig I've been on. I don't consider it working for free. I consider it investing with no risk. I'm just looking for a commitment from UL to follow through on the Alden report.

    Why are we so worried about LOU anyway, you have colleges with the same acronym. USC (South Carolina, Soufhern California), ASU (Alabama State, Alcorn State), AU(American, Auburn). UA ( Arizone, Alabama) MSU ( Michigan St., Mississippi St.) etc. y'all get my point.

    I actually prefer LOUIS that was my first choice
    The sports tickers use a maximum of 4 characters, a minimum of 2. They would not use LOUIS.

    Same with Tech, it's LaTech which is six characters, it's not LTU, or Ark. St. All have 6 characters. What about Penn St.? It's not PSU, if some weird reason it does use only 2 to 4 letters then LA, and for others LOUIS.

    I may need to define what I call a "ticker." On some networks , I see a ticker, which only gives scores, and on some I see a banner, which is larger and gives news as well as scores. On CBS, FOX, ESPN and other tv networks, I only see 4 characters on the ticker, and as many characters as they want to use on banners.

    Speaking of names, it seems "L A Tech" is sticking. Ran into a milenial, when he said that I fell over laughing. Asked me why I was laughing and I said L A Tech. He said, "well that's their name, right?"
