    Trust me, T, I knew there was no malice on your end. Where we disagree is in your last paragraph. Regardless of what a fan base calls Louisiana: ULL, UL-Laf, Louisiana-Lafayette, U-LaLa & etc. I will always respond with their suggested/requested name or brand. I used to be in that boat of intentionally name calling but it got old and did us no favors in the end. Take the high road and it will slowly move in your favor.

    Over the last few months I've acted this way and it feels refreshing. No more LTUR, no more ULMost, no more F?U & no more State. It's time we act like we've been here before. It's time we act the part. It's time we act better than those who want us to fail.

    Again, I am not trying to single you out in this matter. This is more a statement to the Cajun Nation (not Cajun Nation on here).

    Agreed. Not sure why this is taking so long. We are way behind in recruiting and need to catch up fast. I heard today there were only two FBS teams who did not have recruits sign today. Us and UTEP.

    Only because Napier chose not too. If he wasn't comfortable signing our commits then I'm glad he didn't. If we only have 16 for February and one is going to a punter, we don't have many misses available. Let them go get the guys they want, the foundation will be built on this core.

    Some of the staff might still be coaching on the first.

    Have a feeling that and early signing coaches don't want to leave their current employer in a bind

    Heard that for years my friend, I simply don't engage other fans site much anymore.Frankly, I just don't give a damn. I fought the name battle with Cajun Redzone for 9 years, so I know a little about it. In general, I'm not one that beats people over the head about it unless the circumstances I mentioned before arise. You want to fix the branding concern, WIN! We are in a better place today when it comes to strategic planning and leadership.

    Its always UL-Monroe or Monroe for me. I will always put the hyphen in there as well.

    Act the part to whom? Our university is very accommodating in regards to what they call other schools and reference points. If you are talking about fans I don't interact with many fans outside of Cajun fans so I don't really have any examples to set and i don't visit other schools message boards. While I do think the name thing is overplayed and sometimes just exhausting the only people I see making a deal of it are media and other schools.

    Are we looking at other coaches? Can we not get the ones we want?

    LOL. Do you really see UL-Monroe calling us Louisiana or UL? No. No matter how successful we may be or how far we may get with the branding efforts they will never call us by our preferred name. I just kindly do the same in return. The extent for which I do this is usually limited to this site as I do not interact or know any UL-Monroe fans.

    Now that ESPN, the SBC, and the NCAA are complying, the tide has turned, and it is not going back.

    Why let the ankle biters in this state and the SBC message board get on our nerves?

    Do to them like I tell my oldest to do to her little sister.

    Just ignore them.

    As for our business dealing with other media, a professional attitude adjustment is warranted every time they try get it wrong.

    Interesting to note that Nevada and UNLV don't get along and are in the same Conference. A few years ago, Nevada was known as Nevada Reno and there was Nevada Las Vegas. Then both rebranded as Nevada and UNLV. When they play each other, UNLV only calls them Nevada Reno. This is so similar to our situation. ULM is happy with their brand, but hate our using Louisiana and not ULL. So, we may win the battle nationwide but never locally with ULM. In my mind, ULM is the only school that should have a position similar to UNLV. This has no bearing on La Tech or LSU.

    Take all the time you need to get it right. Seemed to work out well for the HC search. My guess is the coach he wants is still coaching somewhere right now and waiting until they are done with their bowl game.
