My friends think I'm Rain Man when it comes to obscure DI schools and their mascots, but even I can't remember MSU was SWMSU. These schools that can't own up to their identity are silly. Louisiana - Monroe or Lafayette now wants to be UL (like in Waterboy) and were previously the South Central Louisiana Mud Dogs.
I think you are Rain Man too. :kisswink:

Yep. Just need to absorb the 3 counties to the east/northeast and then your alma matter could be a directional school too - University of Northeast Maryland.

And JMU was originally the State Normal and Industrial School for Women, but I don’t see some moron listing them at #1..
Why did you state "SEMO is in the SOUTHEAST corner of the state. :suspicious: There is nothing ‘SW‘ about it.?"
Because I thought maybe someone made a unintentional mistake, and meant SE Missouri St, not SW Missouri St

I don't mind the dropping of 'State' nearly as much.
