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

    It was on Georgia's scoreboard today.

    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.

    What a marketing disaster. Nothing changes if we aren't consistent.

    Step in the right direction. We are already inconsistent with all the other names. LA and Louisiana is 10000% better than UL-LAF and UL-Lafayette.
    Now let's get ESPN and AP on board.

    For what it's worth, the Alden Report does say to stop using UL. They say Louisiana and LARC (LA) only.

    UL can still be referred to by the fans and media when speaking and on our unies while LA and Louisiana used for print and tickers. All these schools like Texas, Tennessee, Maryland, Michigan, etc pretty much do it this way.

    Then I would definitely not agree with the Alden report on that issue. LARC is not something that should ever be even considered as a name alternative.
