    ULM has long stated who they are.

    I don't think they are involved in this.

    Well. The SBC may have gotten behind calling us by our right name, but too bad the SBC board moderators, like our 'friend' chiefsfan, won't do the same thing. Case in point:

    There is a thread there started today by a ltu/cuss troll titled "Ark St vs ULL" which manages to insult both teams by purposely calling us by names he shouldn't. And in a later post he repeatedly calls us 'ull'....effectively sticking us the bird and kicking us in the balls at the same time.

    No wonder no one here bothers to post there much. They treat us like shi!!t. And leading the pack is chiefsfan.

    Maybe he should spend less time reading and posting here and do his job there.

    You can't let those types get under your skin; that is their objective.

    And it's moderators objective to not allow it in a message board.

    good moderators would have put that in the smack talk bin at once, instead participate in it. the only point of that thread was to start controversy. CajunNation started a more reasoned game thread.

    EXACTLY. It was meant to kick us in the nuts. From an ltu@r troll. And it was allowed, and is continued to be allowed.

    But actually all they really need to do is edit his posts to reflect the correct naming scheme. In all of his can posts.

    But they won't. The ltu@r trolls run that place.

    Didn't know where to bring this up, so I am posting on this thread. We have actually been very inconsistent in what we put in our weekly game notes lately. Even after our "new policy" went into effect on Nov. 1, we have been inconsistent with how we post in the notes.

    UL vs. Boise
    PLEASE CALL US "LOUISIANA"
    Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns® is the nickname of the University's athletic teams. Teams also may be referred to using shorter versions of that nickname. In most cases, Ragin' Cajuns plural is proper, though Ragin' Cajun in the singular form can apply. UL Lafayette may be used as an abbreviation to refer to the academic institution when clari cation is necessary.
    • Please do not use the following in any instance: ULL, La.-Lafayette, La.-Laf., LLU, Lafayette (not to be confused with Lafayette College in Pennsylvania).

    Still waiting on media notes for ULM. It may be nothing but I am curious as to why we took off the "Please do not use the following in any instance: ULL, La.-Lafayette, La.-Laf., LLU, OR SIMPLY "LAFAYETTE" (not to be confused with Lafayette College in Pennsylvania)." This curiosity came after reading an Advocate article where they use the Louisiana-Lafayette name, which I could have sworn we specifically said don't use (as if that matters with them).

    It may be nothing, I'm just saying.

    Because telling people what not to call us gives them numerous options to call us. Leave all that shtt out, tell them only what to call us and leave it at that.

    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.


    LA Logos that the University needs to stick with. Here is one that I came up with basically its a Dodgers Logo, with a different color scheme, but sure that the University can do a different version, like the G's when it comes to Georgia, Grambling, and Green Bay.

    Get rid of the yellow/orange around the fleur de lis. Who ever thought it was a good idea to put mustard on our logo should be shot.

    I tried very hard, I had to get rid of the fire around the fleur-de-lis as much as possible, and replace it with red.

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

    Title in the News Star
    "Bruno cedes 'Louisiana' name to Cajuns"
    http://www.thenewsstar.com/story/spo...juns/94678924/

    The Sun Belt Conference's decision to refer to UL Lafayette as "Louisiana" met with no protest from ULM President Nick Bruno.

    The revised media reference guide released by the Sun Belt last week lists "Louisiana" as UL Lafayette's name on first reference and "LA" as its short abbreviation.

    All presidents and chancellors of Sun Belt-member institutions were aware of each school's naming preferences before the guide was given final approval by the conference.

    No objections were raised regarding UL Lafayette's naming preferences.

    Then we should not have a problem when it comes to ESPN or any other media outlet.

    Well, in regards to to Bristol, they are SEC arse lickers, and if one tiny hair on Mr. VIP, super bigwig, mega-rich potentate from refineryville's bottom gets disturbed in any way by our name, Bristol will fall in line better than the Hitler youth.

    Bristol is a cancer on sports.

    In regards to ESPN, I think most of our opposition doesn't come from Monroe. It comes from Baton Rouge.

    I think ESPN isn't going to spend a cent changing the branding this academic year. When the SBC and NCAA starts sending down things under LA next year it happens.

    Hopefully and hopefully they do not cave to any outside pressure.

    The conference has a contract with ESPN, if the conference didn't cover protecting its members brands in that contract then they are idiots. Having the conference behind this is huge...we were never going to get anywhere until they were behind it.
