Thread: Sun Belt Gets Behind Cajuns' Branding – From the Bird's Nest

    Louisiana Sun Belt Gets Behind Cajuns' Branding – From the Bird's Nest

    The Cajuns have been fighting the fight since August of 1999.

    Resistance has come from everywhere, most notably within its own league.

    But today, the Sun Belt Conference announced they are recognizing the athletic branding efforts of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns.

    I have to think this was done by Dr. Savoie, to get the conference to go along with this. Who knows if ULM did, or if it was done in spite of them.

    We'll find out next Saturday. If ULM doesn't comply with the Sunbelt's branding they'll look a bit childish and petty.

    What I wonder is if the call from many fans to leave the league had anything to do with this? Others may have been afraid that the league would be weakened with out departure. Probably wishful thinking.

    I am really curious to know what UL-Monroe's take is on this as I just can't see them being in favor of this. Anybody visit their one page forum lately?

    There are a couple over at UL marketing and communication that should be very grateful they still have jobs today after too many branding and name screwups

    I think it definitely strained our relationship with the Sun Belt. That Chinese next to my avitar says SUN BELT SUCKS. I guess I should delete it now.

    Other schools including ULM were granted their desired branding. Maybe a combination of time and perhaps ULM's precarious financial situation and uncertain future in the FBS contributed.

    No mention of it on their Scout forum or the Monroe News Star.

    I think the ULM people have adopted a bunker mentality. Both of their forums seem to be closed to non-subscribers. The seldom post on the SBC forum either.

    I agree that it played a very big role in their decision. I am already a bigger fan and supporter of the Sun Belt right now.

    Dominoes are falling. National media next. Thank you to Dr. Savoie, even if you are slow and methodical. Now we know for sure, with this action that you are still behind the movement and this means a lot to many of us.

    Must have a photo of Bruno in bed with a young boy. Find it hard to believe they wanted ULM that bad.

    I'm not sure they exactly "endorsed" our using "Louisiana." They just stopped pretending THEY wanted to be called UL to block us.

    Or, rather, they couldn't do anything about LA.

    Really wish i knew what happened behind the scenes, though.

    If you guys are looking for reasons why ULM all of a sudden agreed, I think it may have something to do with the financial situations at both schools and any help Doc can give them politically.

    ULM just maxed out their allotment for athletics from state funding. Perhaps Doc provided cover for them? Just spitballing here....

    We can't cover their financial problems, nor influence the state.
