    Just me put I would put out a detailed plan of what we want to do and where we want to start and use that to start a mega RCAF drive to help pay for staff.

    Dave Schultz was discussing the report this morning on his 103.7 FM show. He remarked that we lead both the SBC and CUSA in game day revenue and I think it is by a wide margin. Our strong support in the diamond sports is a key factor there of course. Still this is an indication of our potential. We need to continually remind folks of this ranking. That is true for everyone in media, especially outside of the local area. We also need to make sure everyone involved in other leagues knows this and that we continually pound this. This is huge positive we need to highlight.

    Yep, definitely a big plus, but honestly I think most are a lot more interested in the "weaknesses and opportunities" part of the analysis.

    I think we are going down the wrong path with trying to come up with a ticker abbreviation that includes the Ragin Cajuns. What other Univ. does this? Let's see, FG. Nope. NC, no, not them either. TL or TA&MA. Not. What about MW or OSUB. I can't think of another that uses it. We should not try to start this trend, it will not work. Also, Acadiana is a nice thought locally but doesn't make sense for a Univ trying to make a name for itself nationally. Can you imagine The University of Hill Country. The problem with Acadiana is that the name has zero national name recognition and it would set us back to ground level trying to get to the 10th floor.

Then let's pick some low hanging fruit. For example, how about we immediately settle on a ticker? The suggestion of using LARC is well intentioned but... perhaps instead go with LRC as suggested earlier in this thread.
    Or perhaps UL/RC or ULRC, actually I don't think I like those either... I like UL....

    Believe it or not....we have made so much progress with LOUISIANA RAGIN CAJUNS and the use of UL for athletics that I would hate to change....my area is Calcasieu Parish and many would be surprised at the use of UL in this area...only the typical older types have a problem and let's face it, those will NEVER change no matter any changes.....would just add fuel to their fire....my .02!

    We could do what many Big 12 schools do and use the reverse letters which would not violate the law:

    OU - University of Oklahoma
    KU - University of Kansas
    CU - University of Colorado
    LU - University of Louisiana

    It would require a change in mindset from UL. But, if it could help solve our identity problem, it would be worth it. Our ONLY references would be LOUISIANA and LU. Makes much more sense than LARC.

    That's all well and good guys, but the school has not and can not push UL. This was done by the fans and the media.

    To make a splash and get a brand OUTSIDE of the local area, we are going to have to push LOUISIANA. Remember, change starts with the man in the mirror. I have been making myself use LOUISIANA for a year now. It's a game changer.

    I certainly prefer UL, but it is illegal. Louisiana is OK because it is legal. Will likely never win the battle over use of UL. Do you really want to still be fighting that battle 10 years from now? We need to be practical. Even Alden didn't advocate using UL. Surprised, being a former Big 12 guy, that he didn't recommend LU instead of LARC.

    Never is an awfully long time....especially in regards to universities, which last for centuries, if not longer. A whole lot can happen in all that time.

    But I do like LU.....certainly more than LARC

    Interesting use of KU has nothing to do with anyone else in the state of Kansas but in reverence to Kentucky which used UK.

    No casual fan outside of Texas and Louisiana knows who Lamar is.

    ---Yes I agree with more and more seeing it and hearing others say it---Stay the course with UL and Louisiana---Of all the proposals of this study that seem to be right on course---Please don't change with LARC etc!!!
