Good Morning Greenies!
Well, welcome to what we'd like to call Football's Christmas in February, it's National Signing Day! While most of your are either cursing your alarm right now or still dreaming (or having nightmares) of not handing Marshawn Lynch the ball to run it in for the touchdown, we here in the Tulane Athletics office are (somewhat) awake busily welcoming in football's freshmen class. The Fax machine is hot, there's already been a slice out of the King Cake (by yours truly), and there are plenty of pots of coffee to be had. So let's get started...!
