    UL Bylaws Enforcement?

    An out of state friend called inquiring where is the campus of the “Louisiana” school listed in the scores crawl-line at the bottom of the ESPN football game he was watching.

    I explained that according to the University of Louisiana System bylaws*, none of the nine UL campuses are allowed to refer to itself as the “University of Louisiana” without the abbreviation of the town name of its location but there are two such campuses, in Monroe and Lafayette.

    *University of Louisiana bylaws state that “the use of the University of Louisiana abbreviation must always include the abbreviation for the municipal location of the institution” and “the use of the University of Louisiana abbreviation must always include the abbreviation for the municipal location of the institution.”**
    This brings to mind who oversees that UL bylaws are enforced and how are any and all bylaws deviances handled?

    I'll never call them that, and I get the opposition, but I think our cajun friends would point out that ESPN didn't call them "The University of Louisiana" in their crawl.

    I believe the by-laws apply to official documents and designations, and I believe the University of Slow Learners gets around that by saying it's their "unofficial athletic branding"

    They get around that rule by saying that THEY didnt call themselves "Louisiana', and it aint THEIR fault what ESPN calls them ...

    It's a classic S.La "slick" manuver. (cf. Edwin Edwards) And for that, it holds my grudging respect.

    "You guys cant call yourselves Louisiana. It's against the rules"
    "We didnt say that. Everyone else did."
    "But you told everyone else to call you that"
    "OK, but there aint a rule against that."

    That horse has left the barn, folks. Just more Louisiana crap and politics. I swear, when I drive across the state line into Louisiana these days, I always check for and secure my wallet.

    What I think your university's president realizes that people on a message board don't is that it doesn't help anyone to expend effort being petty and tearing down other universities. Whining about what we call ourselves on the football field doesn't make La Tech or any other UL school a better university. This is a lesson your athletic department is having to learn the hard way after it spent years trying to screw over in-state and Sun Belt athletic programs thinking it would somehow elevate La Tech.

    Since y'all seem to be taking an interest in us, y'all might want to know that we officially became a "Tier One" school according to the Carnegie Classifications which puts us in a category with all of the top national research universities. This is a big feather in our cap and it will open up a lot of opportunities for us to further improve and better ourselves. It turns out that it doesn't matter what anyone calls you as long as you put in the work.

    Stating universities should follow the law and go by their real name is "tearing them down"? Would you care to explain that?

    If what you call yourselves doesn't make you better than why did you try to change your name?

    How did Tech screw over Sun Belt schools? Please feel free to provide valid sources.

    I think we're more interested in schools in the University of Louisiana school system following the law. Don't flatter yourself. Notice how the other schools follow the law and we don't talk about them.

    That's great for you. Congratulations and I mean that sincerely.

    Interesting though that exact phrase "University of Louisiana" is found twice on the official page of the classification. The original University of Louisiana is on there of course and then the University of Louisiana at Monroe's sister school, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is also on there. Would you agree that the names on the list are correct?

    As others have said, congratulations! It's good for the state.

    I know at 99% of the research dollars are in "wetlands" research, but I don't know if that includes coastal erosion.

    If so, that's good for the state. It may one day be a part of saving a good portion of coastal Louisiana.

    I didn't read all your drivel, but don't lecture others about anything as your school lacks ETHICS, not to mention abiding by Law, as athletics is specifically included in such. However, the lack of ethical behavior, as exhibited by ULL in your shameful pursuit, reflects on the UL System - which ULL has no right to do. The UL System and State are at fault, also. Yes, the issue you alone created has "left the barn" but will hopefully be rectified when the shame and damage your school instigated is correctly perceived.

    How has Tech screwed over SBC programs? We don't have that aspiration nor power. ULL does have the aspiration to "screw over" the UL System.

    In today’s world of wrongdoing and lawlessness if you can roll up to a store and walk out with anything you want and nobody dares to says anything then ULL can certainly pretend to be the fake school of Louisiana. It’s just goes with their pretender MO.
