Dear Green Wave Fans,

I want to wish all of you a Happy New Year. I hope that all of you are as excited about 2013 as I am and everything it means to Tulane—plans to join a new conference, new construction, new seasons with high expectations and new student-athletes joining the Tulane family!

I know there have been a lot of reports, as well as rumors, swirling around the BIG EAST. However, I want to assure you that Tulane is fully committed to the BIG EAST and is working very closely with the other on-going members to create a strong, vibrant conference. The universities that comprise the BIG EAST now and into the future are well-respected academic institutions with strong national name recognition and a history of success in all the major sports.

Losing Boise State was disappointing, but I am proud that the BIG EAST did not compromise its standards and accede to Boise’s inappropriate and unreasonable demands. It’s not unrealistic to think that we may lose another member, but the conference is being aggressive in its planning and will remain a strong conference.

Meanwhile, back on campus, men’s and women’s basketball are riding hot streaks, with conference play starting this week. Come on out and ring the victory bell with us!

Football recruiting is wrapping up and Coach CJ and his staff are working hard. Stay tuned for more good news from them.

Finally, we are just five weeks away from baseball opening its 2013 campaign at the Texas State Tournament on Feb. 15. It’s rare for us to start the season with an away game, but an extended Mardi Gras season and the Super Bowl made this a good option for us.

Thanks for all of your continued support and get ready for a terrific year.

Roll Wave,

Rick Dickson
