    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.
    I love it. And I told you years ago that you'll never win this fight, so you might as well accept it.

    I concur. I like it anyway. And that's what really pisses off '06.

    I was pleasantly surprised and very pleased at the Arkansas game when the PA announcer called us by our name "Louisiana Tech" and not Lah Tech. I have corrected my son many times about the Lah Tech vs Louisiana Tech annunciation.

    Yep. I'm okay with it. I like it. Think of it as an opportunity for an "image makeover". Since we have a recent history (last 6 years) of losing over 80% of our "close" games (this is the IMPORTANT stuff), we could certainly use one.

    I don't like either. Lah-ti-dah Tech or El Ay Tech. Of course I didn''t mind Jolly Lolly Poly. I prefer Lew eese zee anna Tech. Of course some of you might prefer Lews zee anna Tech which isn't terrible. We could vote on the last two.

    Pretty sure more people said "Lah Tech" before Dooley tried to force it.
    I have never and will never call us "Lah Tech". TECH and Louisiana TECH work just fine for me. TECH is not confusing in the local area, and if you are outside Louisiana TECH works just fine. It is all crazy to me. I have a feeling no fan at Georgia TECH would think "Gah" TECH is OK.

    My only concern would be the Louisiana Technical College System. I believe they did change that system's name though, right?

    Couldn't agree more. Texas folk don't call their school "Tex Tech" it is Texas Tech and they are a proud bunch. We are Louisiana Tech and prior to that Louisiana Polytechnical Institute. Never LAH Tech.

    I prefer Louisiana Tech. But LA Tech is in Los Angeles.
