    LaTech Updated Standards Manual

    Happened to see that our university standards manual has had a much needed overhaul. Looks really good now. Since we don't have enough to argue about on here, I'll point out some interesting things.




    Also, no discussion of the new or old helmet logo, although other unacceptable color combos are displayed..

    If you spell it like you are supposed to say it, you don't need a pronunciation guide. Also, none of the people saying El Aye Tech will ever see this manual.

    Time to fix the root of the problem by dumping the postal code. It's really simple, but some people in charge are too stubborn to fix it.

    They updated the Standards doc because of BBB. Fact.

    They got rid of the alternate color schemes and placed it under as "Improper use of colors in logo"

    Dawg06 has made several good points.

    Even though obviously theres still stubbornness there, the fact that it was updated at all speaks volumes to me. It looks very professional now. Not quite as good as Cincinnati's though, haha. But yea, it's a good step in the direction of proper branding.

    Well, "Dawgs" is officially UNACCEPTABLE. 90% of our BB&B posters need to change their monikers.

    ...so in all seriousness, WHAT is wrong with the "DAWGS" nickname? We live in THE SOUTH. We're just spelling it the way we say it!

    Or it might mean just that, if it'll piss off BBB.

    How disconnected is our admin?

    So they are saying you can't shorten Lady Techsters to Techsters, but you can shorten Bulldogs to Dogs? Officially endorsing Dogs makes no sense, especially when many feel it's insulting to our history and culture. If they are too scared to use a term that Tech and our fans have been using for decades and a term that several other schools also use, then don't endorse any abbreviation to our nickname. We are Bulldogs.

    Our fans have been chanting WE ARE BULLDOGS since 2008.
    Everything from our athletics department has had #WeAreLATech plastered on it since 2012.
    Everything I get in the mail from our alumni association has WE ARE LOUISIANA TECH on it.
    And embarrassingly, our commercials on TV this year end with WE ARE THE TECH.

    Who are we?

    I have met the AP style guide that states the abbreviation for Louisiana is La.
