    Five years from now, we will be told, "Embrace El A Tech cuz that's what everybody calls us."

    Also five years from now and to forever, ULL will still be ULL.

    Have zero idea what this thread is about--- personally never heard anyone say anything but Lousiana Tech....NEVER been around a group of Tech supporters who used anything but "Tech" . Hopefully I will be able to get to sleep tonite without worrying about this

    Must never been out of state. Folks call us Lah Tech (which is acceptable to me). They have seen our abbreviated name in publication or on TV as La Tech. I see where they get it. As for shorthanding our name in print media, the standard abbreviation of "La" looks better and it promotes the right pronunciation of the shorthand.

    Example: Ole Miss ain't Ole MS. UMass isn't U MA.

    "La Tech" is part our brand now, and I've completely embraced it. Who cares what they call us, so long as they're talking about us.

    I agree with this. We don't have an identity crisis. Louisiana Tech, Lah Tech, or L A Tech all mean the same thing. Frankly I don't care if they call us LA Neck or anything else. We don't have an identity crisis like some schools.

    I don't get why the internet posters from ULM and ULL like using that. I've seen them call us uppity or snobs, but also rednecks? They need to look at themselves in the mirror, especially the ULL fans. Sheesh, those are some crazy backwoods looking folks.

    Don't want to argue but I have probably "been out of state" more than anyone you know. For over 30 yrs I have averaged 3 weeks outside USA and 5 weeks split between NY-Chicago_San Fran . flown out to game in San Diego-L.A-Boise bowl and Boise Game-Fla State -Army Navy Old Dominion

    Know my way around New York --speak enough Italian and French to get by -- Don't like Spain.
    Walked great wall China with Grandaughter --she loves all of Italy-Ok with France but prefers London. Spent week of August in Alaska and couple day Canada
    Met Friend of Rhinodawg in Daintree rainforest I am going to Australia for 3 weeks in March Did the New Zealand lord of Rings adventure last year-- I have been to Rome-Paris-Florence-London - Venice so many times I have lost track BUT still never heard anyone say LAH

    slightly off on the "never been out of state "

    There is a medicine up here called Gravol that helps with nausea. If you take one it will put you to sleep in minutes.

    I've hated the Lah Tech since they first started using it in the 90's. In state I say Tech, out of state I say Louisiana Tech. No need for anything else.

    If los Angeles tech were a thing anyone had heard of you would almost have a point. If they played FBS football you would really have a point. Fortunately you don't.

    I have a Google alert for La Tech news. Guess what 90% of the results are about. Also, wearelatech.com

    I told Dooley it sounded like something Pepe Le Pew would call us.
