Green Wave Fans:

Excuse my delay in writing, as I've been crisscrossing the country the past week visiting with many current and future supporters who are helping us finish the funding of Yulman Stadium.

I want to thank the many friends, family and fans who came back to campus to experience Homecoming. Being back on the Uptown campus for Homecoming has been almost 40 years in the making. Outside of the final score, the day was very special. We have a young team, and there is a lot of talent and heart out there - this team is learning, growing and their future is very bright.

Yulman Stadium is the foundation that will allow Tulane Football to achieve sustained success year after year. If you were one of the nearly 30,000 in the stands you know how wonderful a setting this is -- recruits and rivals are noticing.

I want to say a special thank you to Jill and Avie Glazer. During Homecoming week, they announced their continued support with the Glazer Family Brick Drive at Yulman Stadium. The Glazer family, one of our biggest Tulane Athletics supporters, will match the donation of every commemorative brick that is purchased to be installed in the Game Day Plaza outside of Yulman Stadium. This is great way to show your support and dedication to the Green Wave-and it also makes a great holiday gift for family and friends. This is your chance to leave your mark on Yulman Stadium - permanently!

The Men's and Women's Basketball seasons are officially underway. In case you missed it, the women earned a thrilling 51-45 win over LSU in Baton Rouge last week. This undefeated team takes on an undefeated NC State squad this evening at Devlin Fieldhouse. Our men's team, 2-1, hosts Southern University tomorrow evening and the Green Wave Classic at Devlin Fieldhouse over Thanksgiving weekend.

Our Women's Bowling team, in just its fourth season, came home with an impressive victory from the ASU Hornet Invitational, and Junior Mia Schachter, of the Swimming & Diving program, set the school record in the 100 free this past weekend!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families, and we'll see you in Yulman Stadium on Dec. 6 for the final game of the football season.

As Always, Roll Wave!
