Just because it hasn't been said enough, Geaux means go, and is pronounced go. French is an odd yet interesting language.

Cannes (French film festival) is pronounced more like "Con"

Or look at some of the teams in the French soccer league...

Bordeaux - pronounced Bore-doh
Olympique Lyonnais - pronounced Lee-oh-nay
Olympique de Marseille - pronounced Mar-say
Le Mans FC (also a F1 race or something) - pronounced Lay Mon


It's French... and dumb.
I worked as an Assistant Manager of a furniture store when I first moved here and a lot of times I would have to call customer's who had "problems" with their orders.Honestly, there's really no telling how many last names I butchered when I first moved to Baton Rouge. Names like Bourgeois, Braud, Breaux, Melancon, Robichaud, Babineaux, Jeansonne, etc... I must of looked like a real dumb*** to them. Not necessarily to the rest of the world though

Oh and one more thing LSU fans:

Might wanna do some research about Louisiana. Without computers it must have been difficult for a university in the heart of cajun land (UL Lafayette) to have the nation's first master of science program in computer science.

I always thought it was obvious geaux = go. Geaux is used all over the state, not just for LSU. Comes from the state's french heritage.

Geaux LSU
I would say Geaux ULL but its almost pointless.
Geaux Saints

Well, Starkville is actually true. "Starkville" is choctaw for "trailer park"

I know, some of the comments are so ignorant. The only good thing is I get a laugh at how ignorant people are.
