Nothing I haven't heard before.

Personally I've always thought name smack was pretty silly.

Of course there's a big difference between calling Louisiana the dreaded three letter moniker and calling us "Little Middle". "ULL" is still the name of the university, but that's neither here nor there, I don't call them that.

Again, I refer to us by our preferred athletic branding "Middle Tennessee". Others refer to us by our desired name change "UMT" and most people who don't know refer to us by our (GASP!) official name "MTSU" and most rivals here refer to us as MUTS and most Vandy and Tennessee fans refer to us as "Little Middle".

I'm just not that concerned with what other people call my school. Call us whatever the hell you want.

RE: ESPN references to ULL
I don't get how the school is not the brand. We are the University of South Alabama "Jaguars", not the USA Jaguars or anything of that nature. You exist because of your school, how can your brand be anything other then the name of your school??? Now if the school changes name, such as Troy did when they dropped the State, then fine, but to have a different name for your teams that isn't the same as your school makes no sense.

Go ahead and send this to the smack folder. EE's intentions aren't remotely honorable.

------------------------------------

So in your opinion my intentions would only be honorable if I knelt before the throne and addressed ULL as University of Louisiana. Do you know how the University of Louisiana SYSTEM president, Randy Moffett, addressed the recent entry of the University of New Orleans to the system? He said, quoting from the newspaper this morning, that "The addition of UNO complements our EIGHT REGIONAL, comprehensive, research universities truly making the UL system NINE universities strong". ULL, for your information, is ONE of the now nine REGIONAL universities in the UL system. He said it, not me.

The amount of fucks I give about any of that, or what ESPN was saying while our team won is on par with the amount of fucks our Strength and Conditioning coach gave while he was bleeding on the sidelines.
