Then go tell the folks at California-Berkeley to stop branding athletics as Cal.

Good day, sir.

RE: Name Help
I like calling ULL "Louisiana." The only thing is no one ever knows who I'm talking about. But I will continue to call ULL "Louisiana" for the good of the conference.

RE: Name Help
Can we just drop this whole damn mess? I appreciate everyone who calls us what we request to be called, but seriously guys enough is enough.

With that being sad I think all Cajun fans would prefer to be called Louisiana.

A time when we could have hit a home run for all of us we get this crap-----Help the conference and identify with a much more prestigious name for our school!!!!!

I like Lafayette .....has a ring to it!

You also like being an idiot. It suits you!!

Only in a derogatory way...correct?

That's the same way we feel. Our athletic accomplishments are in no way comparable to Alabama though. All we can do is win and hope it works itself out. It's catching on with a few media outlets...a couple more years like 2011, you never know.

I have lived in Alabama for a total of 22 of the last 24 months and I have never heard of anyone outside of UAB fans call it that. UAB fans do it out of spite because of their poor treatment by the powers at be, sound familiar?

You should refer to the school by its name, especially when discussing academics.

But what we are really talking about is athletic branding.

The school in Monroe has branded itself ULM and will not brand itself differently.

We'd prefer to brand as Louisiana or Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns. We do not want to brand as ULL.

If you can't or won't honor our branding request, then please refer to our brand as "Cajuns".

That's about as simply and non-argumentative as I can state it.

Agreed. I refer to ULM as ULM - it's apparent that's what they prefer. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette is referred to as UL, Louisiana, or Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns. There are just certain people and organizations that refuse to be accurate with identification (ESPN). Whether it's placing the Lafayette Leopards logo instead of Louisiana or calling Middle MTU, they're a bit off in terms of SBC accuracy.

Exactly. The school's website is "www.louisiana.edu" and they are The University of Louisiana (see their logo). ULM's is "www.ulm.edu" and they are ULM (see their logo). You don't see Alabama being referred to as "UAT", because that's not how they're branded. They are, in fact, the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, but people don't call them that often. There are plenty of other UA institutions in different cities labelled as UAH, UAB, etc.

Good post.

We have to have both. ull.edu is what we are required to have...louisiana.edu is how we thumb our nose and say "come at me bro" to anyone who doesn't like it.
