Many Cajun descent live in N. LA, especially along Red River.
I was speaking in general terms. Sure, there is alot of German ancestary in South central Louisiana too. Politically, French Catholics in South central Louisiana, Anglo Protestants in north Louisiana and the various african ethnic groups in southeast Louisiana are the most important and prominent groups and have definitely defined Louisiana politics thoughout our history.
LSU isn't a high school in Abbeville
You missed the point. LSU and surrounding areas were NOT settled by anglo protestants like the overwhelming majority of the deep south region. Clear distinction from other SEC schools.
Louisiana is only about 16% French descent and it's difficult to believe LSU attendance would stray very far from that percentile, except likely lower with many out of state enrollees
Not sure about that number but Baton Rouge and surrounding areas do not have a large percentage of people whose ancestors where anglo protestant. Many LSU students are from these areas and yes from my area, Acadiana. Im just saying the LSU student body, although mostly white caucasions, are of diverse ancestry. Do alot of rednecks go there? Yes. A redneck school? No, it is much more than that. Tenn, UK, Bama, Miss St, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Missouri all fit the "redneck school" mold better by sheer geography/ancestry.
