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

    Don't think it's adding any.

    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.

    You mean it encourages you that the fans haven't given up? It is not at all clear t-jo has not given up.

    The name controversy is the best free marketing ploy of my lifetime.

    Yes. On the scoreboard at Minnesota (basketball) and on the scoreboard at Georgia (football).

    Being called seven different things in the same game and having Lafayette College's logo used in place of ours during bowl games isn't how I'd describe that.

    More like a Charlie Foxtrot.

    Someone may have mentioned this, but are we changing the hedges at Cajun Field that spell "UL" to "LA"?

    I think the first step in getting people to stop calling us ULL etc is to stop trying to be called UL.

    No, from everything I heard we will continue to use UL. LA will be used only for the scoreboard, tickers, print abbraviations, etc.

    Stoppppp. The LA is for statistical references and ticker references. In regular conversation and on ball caps and what not it will still be UL

    That is not set in stone. This is a topic of discussion and a decision has not yet been made. But it's likely we continue to use UL.
