ULM is a much smaller school with a smaller endowment and smaller athletic budget. The schools are not on an equal footing...at all.


They need to be in Div 1 like I need a hole in my cranium. They were just fine in the Southland and still would be but I guess keeping up with Tech was more important than being successful and actually winning. For God's sake, they won a NC in 1987. No it would be impossible to go back now. They need the beatdown rent a win checks from the big boys so they can fund all the other sports that people in Monroe really give zero fricks about.

The real question is ULL (don't respect them enough to call them UL) the 2nd best team in the state? Tulane fans?

Only thing I asked and nobody from Tulane or ULL could answer is does Tulane have a legal case for the name University of Louisiana or did they give it up?


When the university accepted PaulTulane’s endowment and converted to private because of financial difficulties they gave up the right to the name University Of Louisiana.

The Cajuns didn’t play LSU in 2018, so I expect they won’t be listed on TD. And I was responding to a specific poster’s graphic which I included in mine.

It’s been a while since I reviewed the media guide and it does seem that they have dropped the Louisiana-Lafayette as an acceptable alternate name. So no way to avoid triggering the easily triggered.

Who is pettier? UL for preferring to be called Louisiana on any type of media guide or LSU for refusing to play along with it?

Like seriously Nick Saban called them Louisiana when he was talking about playing them in his press conference. If LSU wouldn’t care so much and call them Louisiana then we could all go about our lives. 99% of media outlets use it now and the only ones who don’t are because LSU went out of their way to make sure it says UL-Lafayette or UL L

You’re right. Texas is the worst. Louisiana is such a better state. Our flagship is so much better than their flagships.


It probably pisses you off that UL uses a fleur De Lis too huh

Why does it bother y'all so much though? It doesn't detract at all from LSU being the top dog in the state.

You are an idiot. If you like Texas so much then get off the Louisiana message board. Go post on the Longhorn board sip.

Because people around here don’t know how to prioritize. They’d rather pay for billboards about football players than be concerned about their school going broke.

It doesn’t bother me what so ever. I’m all for other schools in La doing good. I can see the bigger picture unlike most people. Them being “Louisiana” is pretty cool branding wise. Just like La Tech has a good brand. It’s all good

TRIGGERED!


Don’t like it when you’re put in your place? How’s it feel? Big dog telling ULL to sit down, little do you realize Texas is this state’s daddy.

Because if a school becomes known as Louisiana, it begins the process of creating an in-state rival to LSU. Michigan-Michigan State; Oregon-Oregon State; Iowa-Iowa State, etc. etc.

Because according to some people in this backwards state, competition is evil.
