    All I know is that when I type in Louisiana Ragin Cajuns I get a wiki page that identifies Louisiana Lafayette.

    I got the same thing, but if you click on it, it redirects to Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns.

    Ok, if you do a search within Wiki you will get Louisiana Ragin Cajuns. But if you do a Google/Bing search you may still see a "Louisiana-Layette" ..... I think it will just take a while for it to catch up with us....wiki helps a lot in this regards....but it will happen. I think we need to be just a little patient.

Now that this consensus has been reached, anyone changing them to anything but 'Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns' will be considered to be committing vandalism, and will be handled as such. If needed, the pages can even be 'locked' so that only non-vandals are allowed to edit on it.

    Conversely, any time you come across a wiki article using the incorrect version you should change it....or let us know so we can. By example, although the main pages are now correct, sub-pages like articles about Hudspeth or the NOLA bowls, may not be.

    Regardless of what your opinion of Wikipedia is the fact is they are a HUGE presence on the internet and how many folks first get info on us. Major kudos to AirBill for getting this done.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisiana_Ragin%27_Cajuns
    Now, how do we get Google to recognize this change? That's the last nail in the anti-namers' cof|in. How?

    Edit to add: I'm referring to Google searches in general, not wikipedia. Example: "OK Google: Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns score."

    When I search Google for "Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns," the wikipedia page is titled "Louisiana–Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns - Wikipedia." But clicking on the link takes me to "Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns" on Wikipedia.

    Bing is still using the "old" wiki page. Now, if we could just get them to update their Wiki source page.

    Google and Bing will update with time. Those crawlers have to get to work.

    Exactly. It'll take some time for the search engines to redirect and individual caches to clear.

    I'm not gonna lie. This feels good. It's almost as good as ESPN switching to Louisiana. What's great about this is this was done by Wikipedia's rules. Their admin editors were presented with the evidence, and they made the right choice. This is easily the consensus. As someone pointed out earlier, any attempt to switch it back will be marked as vandalism. We are who we say we are: We Are Louisiana! Great day!!

    Thank you all for your efforts! Without reading the entire thread and all the Wiki detail, is there any indication of who exactly was causing the most "problems" with getting the name change?

    Really great team effort. Great persistence. Thi. we are winning the name fight inereal life, and I never thought I would see the day.

    That's exactly what changing the name on Wikipedia is. Vandalism. What an enormous victory.

    Nice job!

    Now we just need to get ESPN to fix the "ULL" usage to be "LA" for the stats/abbreviations.
