    I almost decided to play football at this one university

    ...but the fans seemed liked ___holes because I (unintentionally) used one of their older logos.

    Just seems to me that we (esp the marketing) folks could be doing a much better job, given that everyone knows the struggle we have with our branding. IDK why they can't have a marketing rep help guide the new recruits in making their announcements.

    You change the culture when they arrive on campus. We don't need to and shouldn't pound recruits for the use of ULL or Louisiana-Lafayette because it's what they hear most often from their coaches, teachers and media.

    I think it's coming from printed material the kids get from UL...Anything from Accademics will be university of louisiana Lafayette, right? Athletics? Could be anything...anyone know if that's the case?

    I like that he's showing interest, but respect my decision to think that high school students broadcasting every step of their recruiting journey is ridiculous. Let's see if that list of 5 changes over the next few months.

    Academics uses ULLafayette even though it's illegal. It is a source of confusion.

    You guys really thinking this through from a recruit's perspective?

    Let's hassle him about a name or a logo while we're trying to convince him how great his student-athlete experience is going to be.

    Step back, you guys. Take a deep breath. Think for a little bit. The world doesn't revolve around our logo or what recruits call us. (Especially since this is changing) Let's get the fish in the boat instead of nagging them about not flopping around properly while we're reeling them in.

    Can we have someone other than a coaching staff member contact a recruit?

    I know when those specks or redfish don't fight the way I want, I don't care what size they are. I refuse to finish reeling them in and put them in the ice chest. I just cut the line.

    I seem to waste a lot of fishing line, and my family doesn't eat as much fish as they'd like to.

    There is ZERO upside to this.

    Agree with this 100%. I often get into conversations with non Cajun fans when they say ULL and I say UL. Neither one of us tries to correct the other and their are no problems in the discussion.

    I know.

    My question is if it would be some type of NCAA violation to have an employee of the university that is not on the coaching staff contact a recruit? It was a question in response to LCF response.

    I'm sure the nature of the contact would have to be specific to admissions/recruitment and the academic side of the university

    Sorry, here is a table that doesn't seem to answer your question. My interpretation is that any real time communication outside of an official visit has to be done with a coach.

    I would hope that once a recruit signs their NLI, then they are treated like any other incoming student as to access to registration, orientation, etc.

    BasinBear would probably know exactly what is permitted.
