    This gets us what we need elimination of that dreaded LL.
    LA is brilliant. We should create an LA logo, wear LA on the baseball hats, start chanting Geaux L A, hashtagging #GeauxLA, and referring to the athletics as "Louisiana" in EVERY mention in EVERY conversation we have with outsiders.

    If every one of us that really cared about this simply referred to the school as "Louisiana" in every mention of every conversation, it would go a long way toward ending this.

    "Louisiana."
    "LA."

    It's clean. It's simple. It's memorable.

    THAT'S marketing.

    Unless it's not consistent.

    I believe victory is finally at hand in this battle.

    But... we are not UL.
    We are LA, Louisiana, and we (fans) need to be consistent (or we deserve the ridicule).

If people can't correlate LA with Louisiana Ragin Cajuns then we can't help those idiots...LA, you know the actual abreviation of the state of Louisiana
    I'm not sure what's so bad about the confusion.

    Imagine someone in Minnesota seeing across their crawlers: "LA 33 GS 26."

    They say, "LA? Who's that?"

    I'm trying to understand the downside of someone who otherwise never notices us taking notice.

    Isn't that the point of a brand?

This needs major Media attention. It will also be interesting to see how newspapers in Louisiana refer to us going forward.
    My understanding is that it starts with basketball. We'll find out tonight if BTN adopts it, although I believe they already refer to us as "Louisiana."

    We can't have it both ways. We either market to differentiate ourselves, or keep "UL-ing" (and adding "Lafayette" and keep getting "UL-Lafayette'd" and "Lafayette'd."

    I like UL.

    I like LA more, because it differentiates us.

    Put LA on the hats.

    People are really going to think "LA 33 GS 26" means Los Angeles?

    Context. We're not plastering our new designation on Travelocity.

    I heard a few times in the background the GSU (southern, not state) PA guy call us Lafayette.

    Sidenote...I saw the video. Really nice of our players to help the whole world see our new PAC on social media...

    A lot of these graphics packages are done before the season starts.

    Everybody needs to practice patience here. We've waited this long for the university to finally get this right. We can wait a year or so to work out all of the kinks with ESPN and the SBC.

    We are LOUISIANA

    Forget U

    I don't know who (ESPN? Uverse?) is responsible for this, but this was my Uverse app from last night.

    I have uverse as well, they have been doing this for years. Nothing new.

    And its Uverse not ESPN, it shows up like this no matter what channel we are on.
