You know, UCLA and Cal don't have these stupid arguments. Maybe that's because their fans aren't a bunch of idiots.
All the schools that compete with ULL for recruits should care.
UCLA/CAL is a poor example.
There are a shite ton of UT at ...., UF at ...., UA at .... There is only one flagship institution in each of these states.
I care because, as a resident and native of Louisiana, I do not want anyone to think that that directional school in Lafayette represents the entire state.
