Man, it was obvious as he always points out that attendance at Tech games is "inflated" because many sit or stand outside the stadium, much like at Wrigley Field. Tech even has dorms overlooking the left field wall much like Waveland Avenue at Wrigley. Many students watch the game from their balconies. I don't know that Tech claims these "viewers" as official attendance, but EE claims that they do. It was a very subtle jibe at Tech and very obvious.

As far as the "favor" I asked for I would appreciate EEs cooperation. He claims to be fair in his observations about Tech. I am sick and tired of @ Lafayette dragging Tech into its name game. Tech chose not to participate in the ULX nonsense and, as predicted, it has been a train wreck. Yet, @ Lafayetters continue to drag us into it making false claims. Since EE and the Cajuns are such chums it would be nice if he would chime in about the name game as he claims to offer fair and balanced information. Even the Cajuns know our name, official or otherwise, does not include Ruston. Yet, in their continuous pursuit of usage of their illegal and unethical claim to UL and/or Louisiana, they drag Tech into it. Tech folks would never have given a damn had they not done this.

I have no objections in responding to a sensible and inoffensive request. Let me ask you to point out any post in which I supported or referred to ULL as the University of Louisiana. You cant find even one, zilch, zero. If you can then it must have occured during a mis understood discussion. Same applies to La Tech and Ruston. I cant remember ever combining those as a name for La Tech.

That said I can state that I have not opposed ULL using Louisiana as their name. That is not illegal because it cant be copywrited, etc. but I have pointed out the way to stop that nonsense is for EVERY team in Louisiana to buy some jerseys with "Louisiana" in bold print and wear them when playing the boys from the bayou, especially when playing at their place.

Secondly, I strongly support ULL for any new conference lineup. I have said that they should have been brought into CODA rather than Tech due to the size of their metropolitan area, the success of some of their teams, that they are probably twice the size of Tech (Tech had over 900 grads this Spring compared to over 1800 for ULL). Tech is in Dogpatch, always was and always will.

And yet Tech still has the better athletic department. Tech was clearly a better add.

Metropolitan area? Shreveport is an hour away and by itself is the 3rd largest city in LA, not even counting Bossier City which is adjacent and also in the top 10.

BTW, Dogpatch is a city in California. Bay area I believe. Sounds nice.

ULL would have been a much better addition from the USM standpoint because they bring 2-3 times more fans than Tech. I know that for a fact because my seats are directly across the field from visitors sections. When I mentioned metropolitan area I was talking about local population, not 75mi away. If ULL used your reasoning then they could count Baton Rouge, just 60mi away leaving Tech with more dust in their face.

Let it be known this eager poster speaks for himself. Tech is a great program and USM fans are excited to be in a league with them. This eager obviously has an agenda against Tech. As for ULL, they have their own issues of cheating and 13 football players charged with a felony. I am glad they aren't in our league given those issues.

Can't remember the last time I blocked a USM fan, but I just blocked this guy.

Talk about always hijacking a thread.

4200+ on Friday night
4100+ on Saturday night.

Charlotte traveled decently well. I have a feeling Rice has/will too. I'm guessing 4800+ announced today.

I thought UTSA had decent amount of fans as well especially considering they didn't clinch a berth until less than a week before the tournament started. Felt like La Tech had less than last year in Hattiesburg but still had a good crowd as well. I didn't see any of the non USM games thanks mostly to games staying as close to on schedule as possible so not sure about ODU, FAU, Rice or FIU.

I never said you supported their name game. I do disagree with you that their use of Louisiana is allowable under the law. The use of Louisiana implies that it is short for U of La or La U and also implies flagship status, which the law strictly forbids.

Apparently, the decision makers within CUSA thought Tech to be a better choice than ULL, and Tech has acquitted itself quite well as a member of CUSA.

I don't understand your obvious hatred of Tech. What does CODA mean?

Thanks for your response

I agree. If the park's capacity is just over 6,000, I don't see how 1,800 more people could have squeezed in last night.

A lot of the natives in Biloxi are Vietnamese in origin and they tend to take up less space than Hattiesburg people.

EDIT: And we're doing the UL(L) name thing *again*? Geez.

Side Note: The Vietnamese food in Biloxi/D'Iberville is top notch. Pho and Spring Rolls for days.
