    Let's change our name to University of Acadiana and be done with it.
    OMG

    Winning fixes things. As long as you play like someone called UL-L, you'll be called UL-L. Time to step it up no the field and this stupid name nonsense will be solved.

    Im not positive this has been the case, i seem to recall louisiana having been used after loss... The rationale is a winning ULL is a threat, keep calling them ULL until threar subsides, a losing louisiana poses no threat. Not saying lose to grt name but just dont assume it will be magically fixed after winninh

    This has been proven to be incorrect. 4 straight bowl wins, UL-L. Baseball national seed & back to back supers, UL-L.

    The name has nothing to do with winning.

    Changing our names to Acadiana boat has sailed. Two reasons, first state law won't allow simply Acadiana, it would be ULA, UL Acadiana. Even if you could that would leave a power vacuum that ULM would fill, and they would gladly accept La, UL and on and on.

    So you are saying La College trumps La even though they appear in scrolls only during preseason against Div one schools, a total of maybe twice a season, and possible during NAIA playoffs if that.

    When Adam Amin and Amanda Scarborough refused to call us Louisiana in the Regionals and Super Regionals, winning did not fix things.

    When ESPN refused to call us Louisiana in four straight bowl games, winning did not fix things.

    When CBS caved and reverted to Louisiana-Lafayette in the NCAA basketball tournament, even though the scoreboard and stadium announcer both said "Louisiana," winning did not change things.

    We could be the national champions and still have this name issue.

    Think of Boston College and Boston University. No problem with either identity, mainly because BU does not play major college football. Louisiana College should have no impact on Louisiana, provided we are recognized as Louisiana, which we are not presently.

    One thing changing to University of Louisiana at Acadiana would do is give us the ULA acronym, like UGA for Georgia or UVA for Virginia, pretty good company. No mistaking ULA as Louisiana. That would be similar to Minnesota, which officially is the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Let's find things that will work for us without a wholesale name change.

    The best solution is to change the cities name to Louisiana, like NY, NY. The Cajuns could then be UL LOUISIANA

    ESPN must have not seen the memo. Multiple Ls all over the place.

    No. La College doesn't trump LA or UL, it just adds more confusion to the matter.

    Here's a question:. Since the press release, has anyone seen the letters "LA" on anything?

    Me neither, but it encourages me that we're not giving up.
