    Being called "LaTech"?

    Wondering, whats your thought on Louisiana Tech being referred to as LaTech (pronounced "Lah Tech") by some? Every announcer I've heard on TV (ESPN, FOX, CoxSport, etc) have said it.

    Living in Little Rock, everyone here says LaTech rather than Louisiana Tech. I for one like it.

    I don't mind it, I refer to my alma mater as just Tech most of the time although have to clarify if I'm outside Louisiana.

    If you fail out at Tech, you can always go teach at lsu

    I know a lot of people that don't like it (including my wife) but as long as it is positive I can live with it.

    Every time I hear it in my head, it comes by way of some "butchy" woman's voice. That's the main reason I don't like it.

    I hate it in broadcasts. Unless we're playing texas tech, virginia tech, or georgia tech, why is the La neccessary? Just call us Tech. I always say Tech or Louisiana Tech if I'm talking to someone outside the state. I will say that recently we've been referred to as Tech more on broadcasts, I think some announcers are finally learning we dont like "La"Tech.

    I don't mind La Tech. It doesn't bother me at all. In fact, I use it quite frequently. I'd rather be called La Tech than ULL or ULM.

    My wife actually e-mailed ESPN after one broadcast a couple of years ago! I think she hates it worst than me.

    I think we won't ever escape it...we got latech.edu, latechsports.com, latechbbb, etc....some time you'll see LaTech displayed on a broadcast.

    I liked how Gonzaga embrassed using their short naming convention of the Zags. www.gozags.com .

    I am with the haters on this...


    Been in Virgina for 13+ years and have never heard VA Tech referred to as Vah Tech once. Either by the media, their alumni, or even the UVA folks (who hate them more than anyone). It is either Virginia Tech or just Tech.

    I do not mind L A Tech though (3 syllables).
