    How can you expect any media member to
    honor our request if our own Conference does not.

    Within a few hours of Little Rock announcing
    their brand name change, the Conference
    and all other schools updated.

    I don't see this happening for the Cajuns.

    Still have issues here - I believe.
    but it is because they went the other way, if we wanted to be called Lafayette, we would easily be called that

    We are such creatures of habit (I sometimes still say LSUNO and I hear others slip to USL just out of habit)

    I drove a stick shift all last week and last night I was still trying to clutch with my left foot

    the LA keeps away from the Louisville deal and the need to put the extra L after the UL with hyphen or anyway

    and don't forget that some, because Lafayette starts with the letters "LA", they will just say Lafayette---Keep fighting on!!!

    1984 was, is, and will always be the problem
    Without a legislative fix, the LSU/LaT/ULM crowd will always "correct" others for using these newly approved terms

    If they were close to credible or remotely accurate, use of Warhawks and Cajuns would be illegal.
    they don't seem to have any trouble with nicknames when it comes to :
    Lawrence Berra
    John Fisher Jr
    Malcolm Cameron
    United States Military Academy at West Point
    James Carville
    .... so why just cant comprehend ours?

    They don't have a problem with these nicknames:

    VA Tech - Virginia Polytechnic University and State College - VT, not VPU
    GA Tech - Georgia Institute of Technology - GT, not GIT
    Fresno State - Cal State Fresno - FS, not CSF
    Nevada - University of Nevada Reno - N, not UNR

    LA Tech - known as LA Tech even when they were LA Polytechnic College/Institute

    This debate started 32 long years ago in 1984, and it will still be raging (no pun intended) in another 32 years. We should push for a legislative fix immediately. Until we are allowed to officially change our name to the University of Louisiana, we'll always have to deal with those that "correct" others. I'm ready for a legislative debate, followed by a vote. One way or the other, let's get this issue settled once and for all.

    I did a search on google for "louisiana.edu name reference" and this is the first link in the results: http://www.louisiana.edu/about-us/me...iversitys-name

    With the way state funding versus tuition/other non-state funding ratio is going, we will be a private school eventually, and at the point, we won't have to worry about legislature.

    I wonder if we were proactive with the state and told them we would consider going private IF the state donated all assets to the university and allowed it to keep the University of Louisiana name in exchange for the state not having any financial burden in maintaining it. Seems like that would take a sizable financial burden off of the state. That would allow UL to set its own tuition & fees and direct its own course. By way of example, the University of Pennsylvania is a private university that is also an Ivy League school. Is it feasible?

    2. It is not on RaginCajuns.com. Shouldn't it be prominent on the athletic website as it is athletics related?
    3. How was this sent out? Was it a news release, an email, etc.? Is there any follow-up with ESPN, Fox, CBS, ABC & NBC and the SBC, etc. and, if so, who is doing that? Anyone know their responses?
    4. What is being done to further promote this?
    5. Why did Buckley not do an article about this? This is a big deal for Louisiana. The Advertiser is part of the USA Today network and owned by Gannett. It would likely get picked up by all of the Gannet papers around the country as well as USA Today.
    6. Still not seeing any impact on the Sun Belt Conference board. Yet, it refers to UALR as Little Rock. Is ULM still objecting to this within the SBC? I thought we had Bruno's OK that he would not fight it.
    7. For Georgia, their website shows "the Louisiana game", yet Game Notes shows UL Lafayette, their coach references Louisiana Lafayette, and their schedule shows UL Lafayette. Since they are using "the Louisiana game" on their website, it appears a little effort on our part would get them to use Louisiana consistently, particularly on game day. Does anyone in the athletic dept. follow-up on these things?
    C'mon man. You know the answers to all these questions.

    I keep trying to convince myself we aren't dealing with pee-wee league. But we are.

    Shoukd someone approach the legislature and ask if lsu should have some funding withheld if they keep donna brazile in their hall of distinction, since she was found to be so unethical?

    Great question, I didn't know about that example.

    Would getting out from under the Legislature be called Legxit or Lexit?

    Going private? I'm pretty sure that the legislature would also want a complete accounting of the value of the university properties as they stand. Purely a wild guess, two billion in land value, and improvements. What about the university property in Iberia Parish, again a huge value to add into the equations. We'd have to also as a university figure out how much does the state add to the LA budget cash flow. Even though it's way down it's still a bundle that would have to be made up somewhere.

    The moment in time when we will be 100% independent of state funding mechanisms is rapidly approaching. While I don't think we will be completely private due to the property issue, we will definitely be out from under their thumb while the other state schools besides lsu will be begging for scraps.

    Great times are coming for the University of Louisiana.

    Any truth to rumors that this new push is already sinking?
