    We got El A Tech'd again.

    This time by the new guy at Shreveport's NBC affiliate...

    El A Tech took on Arkansas... http://www.arklatexhomepage.com/spor...-season-opener

    Will our admin ever learn that "LA Tech" and "LATech" lead people to say "El A Tech?" It's way past time to put an end to this capital A stupidity.

    Thank you.

    In the last 8 years, we've gone from never hearing El A Tech to hearing it all the time.

    The ignorant adherence to the capital A is the biggest branding blunder in Louisiana Tech history.

    Nope. Quite the opposite. Tech is inadvertently telling people to call us something Tech doesn't want to be called, and our admin is too stubborn to fix what they screwed up.

    On the other hand, ULL is demanding others call them an illegal name and then throws a hissy fit when others don't give in to their demands. Not even close to the same thing.

    I have no problem with the local sportscaster calling us El A Tech. It proves the point I've been making the last ~5 years is right.

    It's an easy fix. We refuse to fix it. People call us EllAye Tech. Y'all are okay with that?

    I got L A Tech'd at a gas station in Fayetteville. So annoying. Tech sports media or whoever is in charge needs to reevaluate this s***.

    Our peeps are going the opposite direction. We're getting away from our iconic State T logo and have added the LA - ECH on more and more "stuff".

    Many of our fans don't understand what Dooley was trying to achieve...

    We were going for "LahTech". It was obvious early on that EllAye Tech was replacing what was intended. A small change would have fixed it.

    He just got to Shreveport from West Texas a few weeks ago. He's been very good to Tech, too. He was simply reading what "LATech" media relations releases. Can't blame him.

    You want the Lah, this is what you get.

    Yes. Many (probably most) fans were not feeling good about the "Lah" attempt, but it got done by Dooley so we tried to embrace it.

    Pretty sure more people said "Lah Tech" before Dooley tried to force it.

    Dooley didn't try to force it. He just let it be because folks were gonna call us that anyway.
