Tulane Commerative Patch

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Tulane athletes will wear a special patch this year to commemorate the upheaval of Hurricane Katrina.

The patch is based on a slogan used by university president Dr. Scott Cowen who wants them to "carry the torch, be the face and represent the name" of Tulane for the upcoming seasons while its students, faculty and staff remain displaced by the hurricane.

Tulane teams across all sports will wear a commemorative patch illustrating those three points throughout the 2005-06 academic year. The Green Wave football team will be the first to wear the patch when it takes on Mississippi State this weekend in Shreveport, La. in the first game of 2005.

"This logo embodies our current focus," said Tulane athletic director Rick Dickson. "We said from the beginning that traditional scorecards are out the window as far as Tulane athletics is concerned this year. This is our goal, to get back in the game, to persevere and to accomplish this mission of representing our university and our community."

The patch, is in the shape of Tulane University's primary logo, the "Shield." A thick green outline carries the words "The Torch, The Face, The Name."

Inside the green outline is a torch above an image of the skyline of New Orleans, dominated by the Louisiana Superdome. The words "Tulane University, 2005" are above that image.

Here's a picture of "The Shield" that the article refers to:
