I remember a controversy about it "officially" being The University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, in the early 90s, and referred to that way in the press. Is this deja vu all over again?

It's obviously about the end of WMS games. 

I smell a letter to the editor requesting consistency.   I have a hard time distinguishing between the sports teams of ASU-J, ASU-B, ASU-MH, and ASU-WM.

Style change....  and a dumb one at that.

Any respectable outlet wouldn't just let a few rogue writers call an institution whatever they want.

I’ve never experienced anyone working at CFA being a jerk or rude but yesterday I encountered a guy in the drive thru who was not only rude but a jerk. When I finally had my order and he didn’t even say my pleasure I yelled “thanks for being a jerk” and drove off.

When was the last time they said ATU- Russvegas?  Or University of the Ozarks - Ozark?  They haven't.

Well, that would be kinda dumb since the Univ. of the Ozarks is in Clarksville.  :D

There is however an ATU campus in Ozark.

APA style says no to the comma.

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
I've seen those English dramas too, they're cruel.

Is the latter related to Dirty Randy?   :stache:

Are there other campuses using the same naming convention as those two schools?

UA-Fayetteville doesnt bother me, it is probably grammatically correct, but it is also unnecessary and I am sure it is a jab at someone or some thing.

You can't really compare it to your two examples unless there are other campuses of those two schools that I dont know about.

Im pretty sure I read recently that UALR is rebranding as UA Little Rock.

We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility.  It's easy to say 'It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.'  Then there are those who see the need and respond.

Yeah, not like it's an ellipsis.

perusing the ADG this morning and in the story about ASU's baseball team they didn't say ASU-J.  But every article about hogs had UA-F. 

Definitely someone got pissed cheerios.

This is really getting old, almost as bad as Brummett's "preposterous second place President" he throws in fifty times/column or Flip Martin's egomanical, unreadable drivel. Every time the renewal notice comes I have to give it a lot of thought. Next time I may just have to give it a pass.

I quit the paper exactly a year ago and have not missed it one bit. I was at a restaurant Saturday and picked up the sports page. It was stupid reading how they did it. They make sure to refer to them in three different ways: Arkansas, the Razorbacks, and The University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Gymnastics, softball, baseball, football and track. "Barry Lunney, Jr., Fort Smith, Arkansas native and former University of Arkansas, Fayetteville quarterback, recieved a raise this week."

Maybe it has something to do with the fact UALR is looking at adding football to it's athletic program.

It is really starting to be obnoxious.  I was reading some recruiting article and the author starts listing his offers and it's "University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Oklahoma, Tennessee, etc etc.

It's just dumb.

So would you rather be University of Arkansas, Fayetteville or University of Arkansas at Fayetteville?

Probably meant ASU-Beebe, which is an argument they could have used to win, but now they can't.
