Good Morning:

Excitement is building as we begin Homecoming and Family Weekend. The campus is filled with parents visiting their students and alumni gathering for reunions.

I know I will see many of you this morning at the 10:30 Town Hall meeting in Dixon Hall Auditorium, or maybe tonight at the Helluva Hullabaloo Auction and Party, the Wave '10 All-Alumni Reunion Party, the pep rally, the fireworks display, the Trombone Shorty concert or, hopefully, at all of the above.

I am also looking forward to our big game against Army on Saturday at 2:30 in the Superdome. I am so proud of the way our team has battled this season, especially winning last week on the road as a 14-point underdog. I have no doubt our team will bring the same fight into tomorrow's game and bring us a Homecoming victory. Say hello when you see me at the game. I will be the one with the green hair.

Have a great Homecoming and Family Weekend.

Roll Wave!
