First congratulations on your 40th post of the day.  Looks like you'll have more today than the 55 you posted yesterday.  Now at almost 9,500 total.  You rule!  You are the KING we should all bow down to.
"Thoughtless Trog".  To dig the word, trog up, you must be at least 80.  Such a sad, little man belittling anyone and everyone whenever the opportunity arises.  Such a sad, sad life.

The way y'all stalk lefty's post count is as humorous as it is sad.

Then you start a war of words (or continue it) and cry when he puts you in your place. Face it: there's just no winning with y'all. You'll find a way to be offended regardless

You over-dramatize much?

Please note that I always refer to UL or Louisiana in my posts because I see no reason not to call a school/team what it prefers. But serious question, if "there is no ULL" then why does the official website of the institution say "University of Louisiana Lafayette" right at the top and in the logo?

Why would you want the opinions of all of the Ragin Cajun haters and SEC lovers on this board?  You know they are all going to pick LSU.  And it's just going to piss you off.

I don't let message boards piss me off.  We are thick-skinned here (most of us, anyway).  I mean... We play with brick and wooden fences, for crying out loud.

The very link you provided should give you your first indication why there is no ULL (louisiana.edu, not louisianalafayette.edu or ull.edu).

You will not see any reference by the university to itself or any department (athletic included) as ull, ul-l or any other such initials. The athletic department identifies itself and its teams by Louisiana for articles and LA for initials. Some people want to make it more complicated than that. It really isn't.

I see that the url is Louisiana.edu, but when I click into it and see the official logo says University of Louisiana Lafayette and the "contact us" tab at the bottom of the page says University of Louisiana at Lafayette, that renders your assertion incorrect. I'm happy to call your school, athletic teams UL. Not my fight, but clear that to say "there is no ULL" is not correct.

Believe what you want, it doesn't change the fact that there is no ULL.

That was a very funny response. Gave me a good laugh.

But... I am still wondering how they can get away with not having a warning track and/or a padded fence..?
I guess the question should be  - why does the NCAA allow this..?
If this is considered a safety issue (and you would have to think it is), then why doesn't the governing body (NCAA) make them comply with the standards that everyone else uses..?

I conjecture it is probably discussed as field conditions at the plate meeting. At least for unfamiliar visitors.

The same reason Texas' website says University of Texas at Austin, or Wisconsin says University of Wisconsin Madison, or Nebraska says University of Nebraska Lincoln, etc. etc.  The official name doesn't change.  Louisiana is our athletic reference.  BTW, LSU's official name is Louisiana State University Agricultural & Mechanical College.  No one calls them LSU A&M because they decided to shorten the name and brand themselves as LSU.  No problem with that.  Other examples are Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University is VA Tech.  Cal State Fresno is Fresno State.  Dropping University from the name enables you to brand as you want to.  That is just what we did.  Should not be a problem for us to similarly brand ourselves as Louisiana.  Every school is able to brand itself as it chooses and is accepted.  Seems like the only exception to that is Louisiana where people insist on use of the official name even when they don't use theirs.

Not everyone else.  There are other facilities with no warning track.

The only places to point to are the artificial turf outfields, and those all have padded fences
