Stop breaking the law.


I love this argument. And exactly what are you going to do about it? And better yet, where does it say in this backwards “law” where a school can’t athletically brand itself as “Louisiana?”

The whole name change thing is one of the stranger things I've ever seen.

If there is nothing stopping any school from changing their athletic brand to "Louisiana" then can't ULM do the same? Would we then have two University of Louisianas?

Monroe has just as much right to it as Lafayette does. If they did it, you guys would lose your fricking minds over it.

Did you read the sentence before this where I said you are completely within the bounds of the law to bitch and moan about being called "Louisiana" in athletics?

This has turned into a mostly academic discussion, which is where you cannot simply call yourself "Louisiana." If your reading comprehension and debate skills are representative of the education quality one gets at Louisiana at Lafayette, perhaps the state is justified in giving only a third of the funding to the entire UL System as the LSU System gets.



Edit to add: Here's the naming policy if you'd like to read it. "Louisiana" is fine, but "UL" or "UofL" are no gos. So, I believe your baseball caps are out of policy (See section III part C).

This has more to do with the poor education system of the state as a whole than it does with anything related to LSU.

Bama has done a great job at marketing itself to out of state students, particularly in the northeast and it has drastically improved their ranking. LSU would have to do something similar, because relying on Louisiana educated kids to improve higher education rankings isn't going to cut it.

The school doesn’t call itself “Louisiana” academically. So before you question my reading comprehension skills, maybe you shouldn’t pull these types of arguments out of your rear end to where I assume exactly that.

So, is it just a gentlemens agreement that they won't try to do the same? Could yall actually stop them from doing it if they wanted to?

I'm aware.

I was talking to a poster that was in here discussing academics and saying "Louisiana." And that still does not take into account that you were responding to a post in which I clearly state it is within bounds for "Louisiana" to be used in athletics. (Doesn't mean I can't or won't give you shite about being embarrassed for some reason about where you're from or who you are, which is ULL.)

Again, your reading comprehension has failed you.

UT gets WAY more of a cut than we do and that's like comparing apples to mangos

But lets ignore the fact that as far as public Universities go we rank better than Arky and UK, Rutgers, Ole Miss, Louisiville, Miss State, etc. So we actually can compete with other flagship institutions.

So what you’re saying is that the poster can’t “say” Louisiana when referring to academics? By “saying” it, he’s breaking the law? What is this? A dictatorship?

It also helps that they've been at the forefront of the national title picture for the better part of a decade. Out of state interests definitely increases when football is doing well. Puts your school in the mouths and minds of a lot of people. I believe LSU had this benefit for a while as well, in attracting out of state students.

I'm saying said poster should specify because there is no "Louisiana" when discussing academic institutions.

Come on now, that was a joke. But I'm glad to see that you've actually read my comments and retained what they said in order to make a more appropriate response.

Ive had to call the university before for work and every time they have answered as "Louisiana _____ department"

The name of ULL's website is Louisiana.edu

Your own university has a dedicated page strictly for loopholes and to denounce ULL.

quote:

Do not refer to the University as ULL in any instance.
• Do not use the terms Lafayette or U of L, as they denote other institutions.


Conveniently ignoring "UL" and including "Do not use the term Louisiana"

But yeah...the University doesn't try to call itself Louisiana

re: ULL Coach: "LSU Probably Doesn't Want to Play this Game"
I should’ve said “university of Louisiana.” Saying and putting it down on a document are two different things. Also, the law clearly states no one can use “the university of Louisiana” without the city designation. Have you seen that anywhere? Even “UL” on any clothing apparel has to have “Lafayette” somewhere on it. I know by firsthand experiences when I had a hat custom made. So if someone says “Louisiana _____,” so freaking what?
