    Cool names, guys. Thanks for sharing.

    One that I came up with off the top of my head was the Cajun Rim Rockers, but it's kinda cheezy. But just for the sake of ideas, right?

    CAJUN CREW is my choice. I'll even let the band conductor be the CREW CHIEF.

    Anyone know why they did not announce a winner at the Loyola game for the Name the Band Contest? Or did I just miss it somehow?

    ooh LA La. Thank you for entering the Name the Basketball Band Contest

    We had over 83 different suggestions. I am sorry to report that we were unable to announce the winner at last night's game. Due to the amount of entries, not all of the judges could pick a winner by game time on Monday.

    With the upcoming winter break and exams, along with the basketball schedule, we have decided to announce the winner at the January 15th basketball game.

    In addition to the prize package that will be awarded, we will also unveil a new look for the band with polo shirts embroidered with the new logo and name. Thanks for understanding and I wish you all good luck!

    Thanks!
    BT

    They didn't announce the winner last night because, apparently, it's still waiting to be approved by the university higher-ups. It's going to be coming soon, though...either at one of the home games during the winter break or at the first game in January. I'm as excited to know what the name's going to be as you are.

    I can't believe I didn't win.

    "Ragin Brass" it is. Thanks to all those who submitted names. Good luck to the Jazz and Cheerleaders, though, as they leave tomorrow for National competition. Good performances tonight. They had me fired up as much as one of the dunks from the game, and that pretty much never happens for dancing and stuff!

    I thought the announcement could have been sooner, at least before the team came back.

    And I think the "I-love-UL" hand signs I have been promoting would be great, especially while waiting for the team to shoot free throws.

    We only got to hear a couple of other candidates, but one of the other more popular ones was "The Ragin Ruckus." Someone wanted to call us "BT and the Double Dribblers." Outside of those two, I can't remember many more. One proposed by the band itself was "The Cajun Boogie WonderBand." Sounds funny? It was supposed to be!

    Default The Band Seats and Basketball Court

    After attending the last three games I'm amazed that anyone connected with the basketball program hasn't moved the band from the seats behind the goal by the Cajun bench to the seats nearest the goal by the visitors bench.

    The coaches and players must have a hard time during time outs hearing each other whereas you want to rattle the visitors huddle.

    I guess it's up to coach and if he is happy I am happy, just confused about the location.

    Just in case anyone thinks I'm criticizing the band, not so. I think they are great. I just think they should move
