    We will always be UL-LAF with ESPN...our admin may put this out, but I have no confidence that they will grow a pair and enforce this.

    By enforce I mean PUSH--Do whatever it takes and contently remind those media outlets and other schools what we would like to be call. That is not the fans job.

    You're not going to make everyone happy regardless of it changes to. I don't like UL(L). I politely correct anyone who says it. LA is a better abbreviation, but it invites someone to just say Lafayette. I just hope this doesn't trigger even more confusion. I'll believe that UL(L) is gone when I no longer see it on ESP-N.

    Jay and everyone else needs to not even put the "don't use ULL OR UL-L" because people still see it. Just reference what we want and leave everything else off

    but espn is not biased against us, so why wouldn't they listen?

    This is just an attempt to get ragin pagin focus off of the putrid offense and the fact that HUD has never recruited and developed a high school QB into a starter in six years. Don't take the bait stick to what matters.

    I'm not sure what the driving factor is with coming out with this now, but if were a meaningful, enforceable change, of course it would be great. We will see, we all know it is totally dependent on what our Admin (T-Joe) does to market this brand and protect it. Can't get our hopes up, could be another misfire.

    Actually this is important. It will probably end up being the first shots fired in a statewide battle, but by the Univerosty officially having a stance, it shows that their confident in the name usage, the legality and the purpose behind it. As dumb as our admin can be, they're not dumb enough to misunderstand that this will come with scrutiny.

    I'm happy that this is coming before baseball season, when our team will be plastered all over the college baseball world.

    Key take away, "initial mention: Louisiana".

    True, but the important thing is that they finally got it right.

    There are a myriad of reasons to be upset right now. This isn't one of them. This is a good thing, a VERY good thing.
