The official name of the university still has Lafayette in it, if you are looking for heritage. Nothing is lost. We had a chance to name the university "Acadiana University", but chose Louisiana. We are LOUISIANA. Get on board.

    Nothing to figure out here! Bring back Cayenne, he's just fine. Be proud of who we are and where we're from. Happiness, peace, contentment comes from within.

    Ragin' Cajuns are free to roam and live where they wish. As past victims of ethnic cleansing they chose Louisiana.

    They were told to pick a side but because of their neutrality they had to leave.

    Louisiana became one of their choices. Don't try to landlock them into Acadiana, some chose Shreveport, some chose Lake Charles, Houma, BR, New Orleans and even Alabama.

    Cajuns are the #1 minority (mentally) associated with Louisiana.

    Ragin' Cajuns is not the same, but the State wide branding makes sense.

    The #1 animal associated with the State is the Alligator.

    The school has been the 2nd largest in the State of Louisiana since 1939.

    BRANDING is ridiculous. It's what you focus on when your product is crap that can't sell itself and your market is simpletons.

    Which is why "branding" is the largest industry in the world.

    No it isn't. We are being misbranded and will ultimately be less marketable if this misdirection born of insecurity and self-loathing persists.

    We are the hub and heartland of Cajun culture here in Lafayette, La. You've sold out man. Why? Because of your fixation with the alligator? I don't want to ever hear a peep out of you "Cajun's are ubiquitous to Louisiana"/ "Cajun is a state of mind" people regarding Geaux Tigers or any other Cajun misappropriation. You have all sold your souls. Not me.

    Know your place" demands on UL go all the way back to 1906 when the Governor said "there is to much book learning going on."

    I guess you don't mean to say Cajun's are a mental minority. You are acknowledging they are not the #1 minority in Louisiana. Your way of saying you believe people mistakenly believe this too be true and I suppose your are content to exploit this fallacy. There are more black people in Louisiana than there are Cajuns. Just spit it out. Cajuns are most unique to Acadiana the home of our University in beautiful Lafayette. You play loose with the facts as they suit you.

    He wasn't speaking about physical location by "place". More reason to be proud of our Cajun heritage and home...and defiant!

    No he wasn't but President Stephen's interpretation was that SLII had to grow beyond the City scope mentality or it would never reach its academic potential.

    One of the first things he did was invite schools all over the State to join an Athletic Association.

    Within 10 years he had students from every Parish in the State.

    Branding.

    Doing this while never apologizing for who you are and where your from transcends branding. By the way, what's your brand? Izod LaCoste?

    You are defining by confining.

    A school needs to brand to expand.

    My God, folks--WHY ON EARTH did we waste all that time and money with an AD search when he's been right here under our noses ALL THE TIME!!!

    WE need to ALL start writing to T-Joe to have Dr. Maggard reassigned and have him hire
    our new savior!! The university will save SO much money by not wasting time on trying to sell all this useless "LOUISIANA" merchandise. Of course, now, well have to spend money to have everything changed to "Lafayette College," but HEY, that's all we need for a crap product, right??

    You further my point, our goals and vision shouldn't cater to or be driven by self-loathing apologists. One thing we are most certainly not is a crap product, so no need to be mishandled as such.

    Lafayette College already exists or did you miss the miss-branding mis-hap when Lafayette Leopard merchandise showed up in Lafayette here.
