Good Morning:

Can you feel the excitement as we head into our Homecoming Weekend? Families, alumni and fans from all over the country are here. Our team is fired up. The Homecoming Court is assembled. The tailgaters are warming their grills. The Homecoming floats are ready to roll. "Soundwave" is tuning up for its marching band debut. The stage is set for the pre-game entertainment of Amanda Shaw, Anders Osborne and Irma Thomas. And MTV is here to present a halftime performance by OutKast, the number one hip hop group in the country. (Okay, so I've never heard of them, but the students are sure excited.)

Homecoming Fever has, indeed, taken hold everywhere. If you don't believe me, check out this photo and let's have a great weekend.

See you at the game,
