The Quad Countdown: No. 108 Louisiana at Monroe (http://thequad.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/05/16/the-quad-countdown-no-108-louisiana-at-monroe/)

Location: Monroe, Louisiana.

Nickname: Warhawks. This was the official name of the Army Air Corps’ Curtiss P-40 fighter plane, used widely and to great success by the Allies during World War II. Not sure if that’s why U.L.M. chose this nickname, though the fact that they named their mascot “Ace the Warhawk” leads me to believe so.

Last year’s ranking: No. 87.
