I, and I think a lot of alumnae, were very excited SMU joined Conference USA, if for only one reason, to be in the same conference as Tulane. When last year's schedule was announced, I was disappointed the Tulane game was a home game. That, of course, turned out to be a relief, when the hurricane hit. Now, the painful task of rebuilding is taking place. I still plan on going to the Tulane game in 2006, which is why I found this NY Times article of interest. Yes, it is about Mardi Gras, but it is really about a city struggling to rebuild. And it gives those alumnae that plan on making the trip (and I encourage everyone to do so), an idea of what to expect.
