Very few sports teams in the country have names that don’t end in “S”. We have the Orangemen, the Red Storm, as well as others. One of those “other” teams is the Tulane Green Wave. The Green Wave plays in Conference USA, and does so in the Superdome since Tulane University is located in New Orleans. The Green Wave won the inaugural Sugar Bowl game, and has won 3 other bowl games in the football program’s history.
Well, the Green Wave will keep their unique team name, but they will be changing something. In this case that something is their uniforms. It is still unknown what exactly Tulane players will be wearing next season, but three helmet designs have been released as possibilities. One is a light blue helmet version of the white helmet they currently sport. Another is a throwback to the early 1980’s with the U and the T interlocked while the third option is a white helmet with a blue stripe down the top with the “Wavy T” on the side, worn in the 90’s.
