You would see that UL is clearly #2 behind LSU.

    Not exactly. Tech is now considered a tier 3 school.

    I felt that needed to be pointed out.

    My younger brother attends UL and I have since grown to respect what it has done athletically and especially academically. I don't understand this guy's beef with your school and why he parades around under the warhawk name; he is obviously just a LSU homer. LSU has been, and may always be, the fat cat at the table while all other university fight over the scraps. I do think UL and Tech have done a great job with this BS arrangement by the politikers in Baton Rouge and hope one day we can find ourselves at the table.

    cheers,

    With your logic Louisiana would run a 21st Century bullet train track (if built) from Washington just north of Opelousas straight to New Orleans. I-10 would have never been built.

You talk about the state holding you back, why is it that USL gets the most athletic funding in the state? USL doing less with more since 1900. _
    the more you post the more the ad hominem comes out

    ---Your entire thought pattern as per your last post is all anti UL

    You have been made dude

    sorry you won't get all your wishes---btw we get the most funding because of the system that was set up based upon number of students--imagine that many kids wanting to go to crappy UL---and academic achievement ---if you stick around you will notice that we have again--accomplished the most with the least

    -Sorry if you are jealous!!!!

There is only one "flagship" state school in Louisiana and that is Louisiana State University. I've never read, seen, or heard of any others released by the state of Louisiana. You don't have to like it...but it is what it is. _
    Hey just using your logic---I live in the South --ergo I pull for a great school that surpasses LSU in EVERYTHING with maybe with the exception of the baseball team or minor sports

    --Roll Tide

    OH no ---busted your stupid logic!!!!! Keep posting so we can wreck that Tech education

    btw they must love you in Ruston--go back!!!!!

    I didn't realize Tech made Tier 3. Congrats. I always thought our schools were pretty equal. LA Tech is made less effective by having Grambling and ULM so close. They should consolidate all three schools under LA Tech.

    UL is hampered by being so close to McNeese, Nichols State and LSU-E plus the big gorilla 50 miles to the east.

    I would like to see LSU, UL, LA Tech and UNO as the only major universities with graduate programs in Louisiana. All the other schools would be undergrad, feeder schools to our respective universities. That would eliminate a lot of the duplication and waste and allow those 4 universities to be all they can be.

    UL and Tech are the only schools in the UL System that have done the most with what we have and exceeded anything done by the other schools. UNO is in the LSU System. Maybe together we can bring about the kind of change that will allow both of us to grow as leaders of the UL System.

    I also would like to see UL and LA Tech again at the table in a similar conference. Always wished UL had made the move to the WAC along with Tech. We'll see what Conference Realignment will bring to both of us in the next couple of years.

    Hey Tech is Tier 3. This year anyway. And I happen to think UL's campus is quite beautiful even though the city of Lafayette(Johnson St) is an eyesore.

    Thanks. Johnson St. is definitely an eyesore. UL's campus is pretty nice but is land locked, which is why our athletic complex is at a different site. However, we've been able to add a Research Park and University Hotel along with the Cajundome Convention center and other athletic facilities as all part of the complex with plenty of room to grow. And, our President appears to be initiating work with the City on a city/campus beautification project.

    BTW, I like Tech's campus as well.

    I'd vote for that. ULM is a huge hinderance on everything Tech does. They are definitely the little step brother in this relationship. They will complain, kick and scream that any advancement we make, be it athletics or academics, is undeserved and done through back handed good ole boy arrangements and couldn't possible be on our own merits. What prestige they did have is slipping away and they are trying to prevent us from leaving them behind.

    I see us in the same conference soon with the pending shake up with the big ten adding a 12th member. Perhaps we will meet in CUSA. I look forward to seeing you guys on the other side of the field again.

    Cheers

    I think the swamp is one of the most beautiful and original things i have ever seen on a college campus. And though your athletic complex is off campus iit is somewhat connected and I think all of your facilities are nice. Some are even nicer than ours. There I said it.
