re: University of Southwestern Louisiana/ Univ. of Louisiana at Lafayette
I do not believe that any university's sports information office ought to be able to dictate what ESPN, etc. calls their sports teams.

Universities have real, legal names and that's the name their sports teams should be known by.

That said, I'd rather ULL were in CUSA than LA Tech, FAU, FIU, etc.

Before it was USL it was SLI. They won a national championship in boxing before WWII, and uncle boxed light heavyweight for them.

The whole ULL thing was a political ploy to be UL but they forgot that in state politics they weren't more powerful than Northeastern which is ULM

They are governed at state level in the same pot with McNeese, Nichols, etc...

Also, they decided to become a major college for the 1974 season after going 0-11 the season before against McNeese, LaTech, Northwestern Louisiana, Northeastern Louisiana, Southeastern Louisiana, Lamar and Arkansas State plus out of conference games which did not include a major college.

SLI then USL's mascot was Bulldog until sometime in the mid 60's. They started calling themselves Ragin Cajuns before it was official.

For many years Lafayette was jealous of Lake Charles. My ancestors founded Vermillionville which later changed its name to Lafayette, LA

While this is a beat to death topic, ESPN can call them Louisiana if they want. It doesn't really matter.

ULL is little brother.

ULL will always be little brother.


And the LSU peeps that get up in arms about it are just as bad as the ULL peeps that cry for recognition.

Such a lame take. There is nothing wrong with taking a stand against a regional college attempting to pass itself off as the state's flagship university. By your take, advertising and branding is meaningless. So dumb.


Our worth in life will be thy worth.

And you are a pussy too.

Forever L-S-U!!

Damn, you're right. It's the beginning of the end for LSU as the flagship.
ULL is taking over. Might as well send the students home and lock the doors.

What's funny is they couldn't possibly represent the state any less than they do, being as regional as they are. Does anyone really think that people from North Louisiana identify themselves as Cajun?

Ok.

Get some more rest. All of this mind reading you've done seems to have made you a bit cranky. You can't even follow along enough to answer a question.
