If your fear hasn't happened yet ... It ain't happeningFor the Cajuns, a Gator mascot would be the beginning of the end of the Cajun nickname.
UL has had a Bull Gator Mascot forever! (relatively speaking)
The Bull Gator has appeared in more UL publications than any other animal, and one year the cover of the yearbook was pseudo Alligator Hyde.
Do not fear peripheral branding.
Bull Gator is not the end of Cajuns, its the habitat Cajuns chose to survive and thrive in.
