Good Morning,

Tomorrow our beloved New Orleans Saints begin their journey to become Super Bowl Champions. The “Who Dat Nation” around the world will be cheering the Saints as they meet the Arizona Cardinals in what promises to be a clash of offensive titans.

Weeks ago, in anticipation of this magical journey, I began to ask New Orleanians to explain to me the origins of the “Who Dat” chant. The vast majority of respondents had no idea of the answer. I shouldn’t have been surprised Wednesday to pick up the Times-Picayune and see they were thinking along the same lines!

The fact that the Who Dats and all things Saints are the topics of conversation everywhere is not much of a surprise. At Tulane we have a whole contingent of dedicated fans of the Black and Gold as shown in this video from the New Wave.
When Councilman Arnie Fielkow and I made a presentation at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., last month and talked to media from around the country, the Saints were one of the first subjects to come up.
And remember: Who dat say dey gonna beat dem Saints? Not the Cardinals, whose wings will be clipped by the next Super Bowl Champions!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if he was that effusive about his own university's football team? WTF?

I hope Cowen will decide to work to make Tulane viewed as the New Orleans' college team. :idea:
