Weather Cuts Green Wave Practice Short

"We got a lot done today," head coach Chris Scelfo said. "It was a good practice and we worked hard, just lost about 20 minutes when the rain really hit because of the field conditions."

NEW ORLEANS, La. – A brutally hot sun quickly turned to clouds and then to a downpour as Tulane football practice was cut short by 20 minutes on Thursday afternoon at the Westfeldt Complex.

"We got a lot done today," head coach Chris Scelfo said. "It was a good practice and we worked hard, just lost about 20 minutes when the rain really hit because of the field conditions."

The team opened with field-goal simulations and proceeded to drills, working primarily on base fundamentals as opposed to schemes. The offense and defense did not work together other then the offense playing against the scout team.

Tulane will hold its Annual Fall Fan Day on Saturday, Aug. 28 from 6-9 p.m. at the Westfeldt Facility. The Green Wave football, volleyball and soccer teams will be on hand to sign autographs and participated in interactive games with the youth, while a live band and giveaways will also highlight the event. The event is open to the public and admission is free.

The Green Wave officially kicks off the 2004 season on Saturday, Sept. 4, when they travel to Starkville, Miss., to take on Mississippi State at 5 p.m. That game will be aired live on ESPN2. Tulane opens its six-game home schedule the following Saturday (Sept. 11) when the boys in Olive and Blue play host to Florida A&M at 6 p.m. in the Louisiana Superdome.
