Good Morning:

I am hoping to see many of you this morning at the Town Hall Meeting I will host from 10:30 to 11:30 in Dixon Hall. I have already received many questions from you via email and look forward to more from this morning's audience. We will be tweeting from the meeting and, if you can't attend in person, we will also be live blogging and accepting questions online. 

But answering questions is just one part of my plans for this weekend. I am also looking forward to a lot of Homecoming fun, and I hope you are, too. Tonight is the Helluva Hullabaloo Auction and Party, the All-Alumni Reunion Party and, beginning at 7 p.m. on the LBC quad, a pep rally, fireworks show and concert by the Rebirth Brass Band that is free and open to all Green Wave fans.

Homecoming fun continues tomorrow with tailgating for the big game against Rice beginning at 11 a.m. at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Ryan Griffin and the Green Wave had a record-breaking performance in last week's victory against UAB, and we are hoping for more of the same on Saturday. 

The weather is perfect for a great Homecoming. If you need any product suggestions on getting your hair dyed the perfect shade of green, let me know. Also, if you are a tweeter or use Instagram, be sure to use the hashtag #wave2012 this weekend for all your Homecoming messages and photos. Let's make our Homecoming trend on social media! 

Tweets, Instagram, hashtags and green hair. I am ready to see the Wave roll.

Have a great Homecoming Weekend,
