Wave Chat

October 26, 2012

Dear Green Wave Fans,

First, thanks to everyone who joined me on my first live chat Oct. 16. We couldn’t get to every question, but we did get to a lot of them and my answers are posted here: 

Since the chat was so well received, I have decided to do several more. The next one is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Dec. 18. Please help spread the word. 

The Green Wave lost a close one to UTEP last week but I am looking for a strong rebound against UAB tomorrow. Having QB Ryan Griffin back has made a world of difference to our offense. Orleans Darkwa, though limited, has made an impact, too. The coaching staff and team expect a great finish to the season and I share their optimism. 

All across campus everyone is getting ready for Homecoming, which features our game against Rice. To kick off the weekend on a high note, we will have a press conference at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1 to announce the lead donors to the new football stadium. You can follow the announcement live on: and video highlights of the new stadium will be archived in the same place. This will be a great day for Tulane Athletics and Tulane University. Hope you are able to be there to share the excitement, whether in person or watching online. 

Also, don’t forget the great Helluva Hullabaloo auction on Friday night, Nov. 2. There are so many terrific items you will have a hard time choosing where to place your bid. Actually, since proceeds benefit our student-athletes, why not bid on them all? 

I know rumors have been swirling about the new look for our Fieldhouse and many of you received a brochure with your basketball season ticket renewals. Expect more news about the facility, with photos and video, right after Homecoming. We’ve had some details to work out before we could make an announcement, but now we are ready to showcase the renovations. 

Hope to see you all soon at one of our sporting events. 

Roll Wave,

Rick Dickson
