    I don't think David Walker, Scott Farmer or any individual labeled as "university" should decide that.

    Lady Cajuns was organic and came on the heels of being in an organization called "women" that banned their participation in intercollegiate sports for "50" YEARS.

    It took a "Miss America" and "Lady Cajuns" to put female sports back on the map at UL.

    Some admin trying to save money on marketing is not an excuse.

    The ones who really pushed for the drop of Lady were the Lotiefs. The other women's coaches agreed unanimously.

    This was not something pushed by David Walker or Scott Farmer. This happened while Nelson Schexnayder was AD and it came in response to the requests from the coaches.

    How many damn times to we have to visit this.

    It isn't coming back. Ever.

    I'm talking about the third wave to kill organic. 2008.

    Second wave to kill organic was Lotief era and fear of the established brand.

    First wave to kill organic was 1999 (100 year anniversary) and the attempt to rebrand from organic "Cajuns" and "Lady Cajuns" to everything "Ragin' Cajuns."

    The agency expense to create a new logo design, lettering, numbering, hot wheels, pepper was around $25,000. The little extra to do the same for Lady Cajuns was deemed cost prohibitive.

    For a while stand alone "Cajuns" was removed from all uniforms. Lady Cajuns was swept under the rug.

    As you can see with "Cajuns" you can't kill organic.

    It's taken 3 separate attempts, some people don't understand who the sports program is for. It's not the coaches.
