    A few years ago Turbine put forth using LA (since its legal) instead of pushing UL. While I always liked saying UL, it shouldn't be too difficult adjusting to LA. If using LA gets us away from the ridiculous name challenges both in state and in media then We The People should be supportive. If the branding takes us in the direction of caps or helmets have LA on it, I'm fine with it. We are Louisiana.

    LA is just for ticket or stats, it's not to start calling us La over UL. In conversation it's still UL. Like Houstoncajun likes to compare us to Texas longhorns...they say Texas or UT, but for tickers and stats they have "Tex". No one walks around saying Tex.

    In conversation with non-LA people, I never use "UL, Cajuns, Ragin' Cajuns, or anything else. I exclusively use "Louisiana."

    Found a stream of the game online. It has Lafayette as the name.

    Probably gonna have to wait til next year to get any of this changes. I'm just happy things are getting changed and we are pushing this. Makes the waiting easier
    Interestingly, when UALR wanted to be known as Little Rock, it was immediately accepted by everyone. I wonder if anyone is following up with the media and conference on this or is it just a simple release and hope for the best? Why hasn't the SBC come on board if ULM is supposedly OK with it?

    Looks like the Little Rock & UT Arlington
    websites have been updated to Louisiana for all sports and future schedules. Thanks to these conference partners.

    Figured Little Rock would comply as everyone
    did for their request. Might take some time to get all conference members to changed over. I suspect some will not change unless the conference does, as they did for Little Rock.

    With an official announcement from our President and Marketing Department, you would think the conference would comply as they did for Little Rock.

    If they do not comply - ???

    So we do this and Monroe starts using UL

    remember they had used Louisiana only after the name change

    this whole thing just keeps going on and on because of the LSU desire to keep us from UL in 1984

    We are such creatures of habit (I sometimes still say LSUNO and I hear others slip to USL just out of habit)

    I drove a stick shift all last week and last night I was still trying to clutch with my left foot

    the LA keeps away from the Louisville deal and the need to put the extra L after the UL with hyphen or anyway

    and don't forget that some, because Lafayette starts with the letters "LA", they will just say Lafayette---Keep fighting on!!!

    Well ULM can, like us, only use ULmoanrow. Can't use it anywhere except verbally amongst themselves.

    Additionally they've been branding ULM for years. I don't think it's in their best interest to backtrack.

    Yes. This. LA is for tickers/stats only.

    By the way, we have never referenced/recommended UL in any former guidelines on name use. The goal is not to change the accepted reference of "UL" that is used casually but to require a ticker/stat abbreviation that aligns close with the university name without confusion to other universities.

    From louisiana.edu:

    Name: University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette®
    Academic Abbreviation: UL Lafayette
    Athletics Nickname: Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns®
    Athletics Shortened Names: Louisiana, Ragin' Cajuns, and Cajuns
    Athletics Abbreviation: LA (for score/stats listings only)

    If the Sunbelt Conference does not make these wholesale changes for the Cajuns to Louisiana and LA for abbreviation, then we will
    be stuck in the same situation.

    How can you expect any media member to
    honor our request if our own Conference does not.

    Within a few hours of Little Rock announcing
    their brand name change, the Conference
    and all other schools updated.

    I don't see this happening for the Cajuns.

    Still have issues here - I believe.

    I had a ULM guy on Twitter harassing me about this today. With links to "laws" included. They keep saying we are illegal. But we aren't in any way shape or form. He was including Matt Sullivan in his tweets to me and an espn employee. Troll...
