University Of Louisiana At Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns
The Missouri Southern men's basketball team took advantage of a huge second half in Maryville, Mo., and the Lions are in the NCAA Division II Region Finals after Southern defeated Southeastern Oklahoma State 80-72 in a two-game series at Cajundome on Wednesday night. The Lady Rangers will record their first win of the season against the University of Louisiana in Lafayette on Friday when they host Texas State in the second game of a series at the CajaDome. It opens the Sun Belt Conference and kicks off Friday at 7 p.m. (CT) when Louisiana-Lafayette (7-2, 2-1) plays South.
The Mountaineers have been 9-3, including 6-2 in conference play, though they haven't found the cover of the Sun Belt this season. Louisiana slipped down the rankings after beating Georgia State and Georgia Southern by a combined five points in overtime, but the Eagles beat Louisiana Tech by 14 points and finished the season with a 7-1 record, the best record in school history.
The Southwestern Louisiana Industrial Institute lost an eye and became the Southwestern Louisiana Institute, renamed the University of South Western Louisiana in 1960. It was less than a month before Louisiana State forced the school to change its name back to University - Southwest Louisiana.
But the university president's authority persisted, and a subsequent act of Louisiana legislation nullified the name change. The then chancellor of Louisiana State, Dr. William A. "Buck" DeSantis, signed an order to change the name of the University to University of Louisiana at Lafayette. This made me think about the history of this university, of which I am proud, and also about its history as a university.
In 1963, football coach Russ Faulkinberry changed the Bulldogs football team's nickname to Raging Cajuns, a nod to the school's location in Acadiana. The school became the University of Southwestern Louisiana (USL) in 1960 and the University of Louisiana in 1963, after being founded as a medical college in Louisiana in 1834. Shortly after that, in 1984, the USL name was renamed University in Southwestern Louisiana after a court challenge and became the University at Louisiana at Lafayette.
The school tried to change its name to University of Louisiana, simply by an act of the Louisiana Congress, but they could not legally forget it. So they could have called it a day. And it would have complied. It didn't matter if it was official or not, as long as the school managed to get everyone to call it the "University of Louisiana" or "UL."

The school, now known as the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, was founded in 1901 and has had a football team since its first year. The school is believed to have been founded in 1902 as the Southwestern Louisiana Industrial Institute (SLII) and to have been the first college football program in Louisiana, after being known as the Bulldogs at the time.
In 1963, the name was changed to Ragin 'Cajuns, which I admit is a pretty good regional name.
They rose and worked their way back into the polls, gaining relevance in the 1990s, where they won 9-4 and landed the New Orleans Bowl. The Cajuns lost a little with the completion of Ja'Marcus Bradley, but the passing game wasn't nearly as impressive as the running game and they were shut out against opposing pass plays. They have risen to the top of the Sun Belt Conference in recent years by overtaking both offense and defense. Although they finished second and third and had a long time to go, they erased those drives when they returned eight of their 11-man rotation, propelled by high-profile freshmen who came to campus this season.
