RE: Acceptable Handles
I would say just call us state, but...

a) we have WAY too many state universities in this conference and
b) I think most Bobcat fans dislike that notion.

A couple of months ago I was interviewing for a project at Georgia State and the Owner of my company started the presentation with "We've got a couple of GSU grads on the panel, unfortunately it is the wrong GSU." It went downhill from there and, needless to say, we didn't get the job. 03-banghead

When he says "no" he means yes, only use Appy.

I have no problem with Appy - I heard that was popular with App folks in the 60s - but a guy on my local sports talk station always refers to us as "Appy State" and for some reason that really bothers me.

I have no idea why, but I don't like it either. I mean, it's a University not a child or small dog.

Ga. Southern and Ga. State seem to have basically adopted the GSU for Ga. State and GS for Ga. Southern. That works fine for me.

I'm not one to force the name issue down another fan base. If you don't want to call us UL or Louisiana, just call us the Cajuns. If you want to tick us off, call us the following. LaLa, Ulaf, or worst of all U-La-La.

Yet half the people on this board and anyone visiting basically have no idea who you are talking about since you have to know the secret code.

I think I'd get 'em mixed up - I'll go with GaSo and GaSt.

But I'm impressed that they've worked out a convention on their own.

We are Georgians. We do work. And we're smart enough to do what's best for business. As for getting confused thats hilarious. Kind of like NMSU and UNM I guess...05-stirthepot

None of the ones listed for the Ragin Cajuns is acceptable as you'd be hard pressed to find any Cajun fan that uses any of those. Call us Louisiana. That's our brand. If you can't. Then call us Cajuns.
