    I hope the MOB gets hold of this. This is some great material for them.

    No, it's about branding. The branding was intended to sound out "Lah".

    That works with La or even LATECH, but our dumbass people insist on the font LATech which is NOT the brand.

    Easy fix...just don't use LATech, but like most democratic snowflakes, they doubled down after common sense request were sent in.

    Now we are Los Angeles Tech.

    What's that got to do with LA Tech? I think one (ULL) is an illegal act, and one (Tech) is not. Apples and oranges.

    Why is this so hard to grasp? People don’t say or write V-Aye Tech, T-X Tech, C-Aye Tech, or G-Aye Tech? Why would you say it or write it El Aye Tech. I have said all along, for me, it always is and always will be Louisiana Tech when I say it and La Tech if I am writing out shorthand because that is the only other way I ever heard it until about 2014. They may have been pushing it earlier, but I never heard it until then. And I live and work in Ruston and have for all but 2 years of my life.

    Cuz not a single one of those Tech schools you mentioned brands themselves like that. LA Tech does. NC State does. NM State does. NC Central. Etc. Hence, why people call us El A Tech now and none of the other Techs get their brand butchered like we do.
