    That's what I'd like to verify. Heard that maybe the captain is deciding to turn the ship around after seeing some choppy waters.

    at least he said "university of Louisiana" that's one step... and the fact that they claim to listen to us, is a good sign that this has a chance. the other networks never said that, that I know of.

    Has anyone seen anything official out of any administrative office on this change? I'm certainly not questioning Jays posted tweet that began this thread. It's just that this is so important to branding for our University that I would have thought it would have been very public.

    This new effort is in the silent phase.

    I believe there was an actual email from our SID that went to news media outlets. Which ones specifically, I do not know for sure.

    However, I'm now hearing the the solid, aggressive stance our Presidentwas supposedly going to take is now reversing.

    But again, that's just what has been rumored.

    how did the UL credit union change the name so easily and successfully, Lafayette was never part of it, and no one tried to add it, or complained to banking regulators?

    Separate entity from the university.

    true, and ok. but they had no trouble is the point. the principles and methods they used could still be attempted? or at least ask them what they did to see if it can apply or not. otherwise that implies there is a concerted effort specifically aimed against our university, which we have been told wasn't the case?

    Ul Lafayette, UL LAF, Louisiana Lafayette, LA Lafayette, take your pick. They're all used every year by someone, somewhere. The more we try to "correct" some people, the more determined those people become to use whatever name it is that they want to use for us.

    No matter how many times I refer to us as UL in conversations with my LSU grad next door neighbor, he still calls us ULL. He'll never change. I refer to his beloved Tigers as LA State when the two of us visit, and though he doesn't like that any more than I like him using ULL, he still refuses to use UL. I quit trying to correct him long ago.

    Same feelings here. I work in BR tho. I use UL in conversations and most of my co-workers still say ULL to me. Even some family members do it.

    Because it's such as awesome burn to call them Baton Rouge to their face!!

    Just like it's still fun to make fun of them for losing their National Championship game when we won our NOLA Bowl game.
