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.
