    UL Softball A little more visual Louisiana please

    "Louisiana" is missing.

    In upcoming schedule, Louisiana is completely lacking and the location "Lafayette Lamson" is the only geo, leading one to think of schools name, location Lamson.

    Where I would expect Louisiana vs opponent, it has "Opponents logo vs Opponent"

    Take a step back from the ledge. I don't see much wrong with this.

    It comes across to my calendar like that. It's terrible.

    And while I'm on it state abbreviation is "LA", not "La." That just me being technical. It changed a long time ago to just two letters in all caps with no period.

    So it should say
    "Lamson Park, Lafayette, LA"

    Thanks Turbine!!!! You are SO correct and ALL University personnel should be emailed from time to Time to ensure that they and all I others like students , fans, and anyone in correspondence with UL for any reason will know the proper use of Louisiana and LA and Ragin Cajuns!

    That should be the caption.

    You said in 8 words what the 1000 word picture says.

    No school or connected athletic brand, move on.

    I take it back. You're right, Louisiana as a keyword (i.e., the number of times it appears in SEO-critical tags) is appears a whopping 3 times.

    That is for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) some in the header, some in the footer, some embedded if a popup is clicked and obviously great if searched for.

    The actual screen capture is not clear.

    To be clear, this is not anything UL is doing wrong, this is a layout design issue.

    The name of the website is still the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette athletics. The calendar comes up the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette softball vs whoever. Absolutely horrible for a calendar. La would be fine.

    Yes... They even had UL as the abbreviation in the first half... It was changed to LA in the 2nd half.

    I like the throw back jerseys, but no reason you can't have Louisiana on the away jerseys instead of Ragin Cajuns. Home jerseys have Ragin Cajuns, Away jerseys have Louisiana. We have to push the brand and any opportunity for statewide and national exposure needs to have Louisiana.
