    If your mascot is not a physical representation of your nickname, then it must be a background figure. It should be lost to some.

    The Catahoula is the epitome of unique. It is a 100% Louisiana product. It will have a page in the program with it's ties to Louisiana and the Cajun people in detail. It will roam the stadium on gameday. People will love it. End of story.

    Anything more than this will create confusion, and the temptation will prove too great in marketing the you know what out of a gator. I predict that if we ever adopt a gator mascot, it will be only a matter of time until we change the nickname from Cajuns to Gators.

    Maybe a pair of live gators, one an albino, the other a DNA altered vermilion, good project for the biology dept.

    And we don't want to lose any cheerleaders when they have to catch it every Saturday at Cypress Lake.

    I would love a masked Mamou type Mardi Gras person "Cajuns Sideline Mascot" walking a Catahoula Curr Dog. That'd be on par with TAMU, UTenn, etc.

    Is the prime resident of the campus jewel background enough?

    Official State dog further strengthens our marketing initiative as Louisiana.
    The story of the Cataholua reads like the story of Louisiana.
    It has a history of hunting big game in the Swamps and backwoods of Louisiana along side our ancestors.

    Kids love dogs. Chicks love dogs. Alpha and Beta males love dogs.

    We had a dog as a mascot, an English Bulldog, when we were USL. Need to move on to our oldest, 118 year tradition of a gator in the swamp and in The Swamp.

    Your logic thus renders Ragin Cajuns as inconsistent with the "Brand", not representative of the entire state. Will you suggest we relocate next?

    You're wrong. People visiting Monroe always asking for the best Cajun restaurant in town. Louisiana known for NOLA, MardiGras, and Cajuns.

    People in Baton Rouge and New Orleans also misappropriate our unique Cajun identity. Doesn't make it right. I guess you're cool with that other Cajun College in Baton Rouge.

    Maybe they can just look around Cajun Field and the tailgating areas. I'm pretty sure they could just locate a few characters and have them roam the sidelines just being themselves!!! LMAO!!!

    Not at all, but we're trying for consistent branding. If you're fine with a small brand for the city of Lafayette, oh goody. Maybe we really need to go back to Vermilioville, go ULV unique.

    What is the single consistent factor in the 3 names? LOUISIANA. Why muddy up the reference with an Acadiana name? I understand being proud of being a part of Acadiana, but we are talking about branding and it just does not fit that narrative.

    Don't waste your time with that LSU (or tech, I can't figure it out) fan Mr. D.
    She's just here to be a horsesass.

    It's taken us 17 years to finally capture the Louisiana name since our name change in 2000. I can't fathom why anyone would want to continue to muddy the "name" waters with yet another reference, albeit one that we have had for years. Now is the time to make a clean change with all references to Louisiana.

    Your post doesn't make sense. But anyway, I disagree. I understand what you hope to accomplish through consistent branding, I just believe you risk losing something more valuable along the way- our unique heritage.

    Your narrative is a sort of ethnic cleansing.
