Thanks for the pub. However, you were off base one point. I never said anything about calling the Cajuns "Louisiana" except to say it is the preferred athletic brand.

I do not, and have never had a problem with "Louisiana-Lafayette" or "UL-Lafayette."

The University has been saying do not use ULL for twelve years.

The Commissioner continues to shove it down our throats....hence my consternation

BOP is a lot more diplomatic then most us, little Brett needs to understand that most of us really don't care what the little homer beat writer in Denton thinks. I could easily say that most people nationally don't know who Brett Vito is either, even if he twitters his name all day long!03-lmfao

Kinda like most could not care less what "ULL" wants to be called. As I read Vito, he actually supports part of your moniker argument; that names are derived from common usage not strict adherence to official nomenclature. By the way if you read a lot of Vito, you would realize he is not exactly the homer you depict.
