Tale of the tape
The official measurements are in for the new Angry Wave logo placed on top of the Yulman Stadium scoreboard on Tuesday.

Made of fiberglass and steel and weighing 3,353 pounds, the emblem has a width of six feet, seven inches, a height of 14 feet, seven inches and a length of 20 feet, nine inches.

It looks really good, and this is in no shape or form a complaint, but I actually thought it would look bigger atop the video board. I never realized just how BIG our video board was.

Same here. It doesn’t do it justice as far a size goes sitting on top that board.

Would it be better placed in front of Yulman?

Perfect where it's at. It looks plenty big up there.

What happened to the water feature or did that get destroyed with the fire?

I wondered about that at the USF game. My guess is that no one gets sprayed when gametime temps are cool.

I don't know if it was deliberate, but the indirect lighting on Angry Wave was very cool and a little ominous. Think we should name him "Phantom of the Aqua".

I don't know if Tulane ever said it would have a water feature. I think some just guessed/hoped that would be the case and then it became taken as a truth. It shot out smoke when it was introduced. That may be the only feature it has.

There was discussion coming from Dannen last year about the Angry Wave having a "water feature". It definitely came from Tulane and not the board posters here.

My understanding was that the administration wanted it to shoot water on the students after each score but (as usual) attorneys nixed that idea as too much of a legal liability. The fallback position was to have it mist over the students. Maybe the attorneys crushed that as well.

Or maybe it was just somebody used some common effing sense. Good luck getting a female to ever come back to a game after she's had her hair and make-up messed up by some "water feature."
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

Looks good, I like it! I sure hope they don't set it up anywhere unsupervised... could totally see some LSU ass vandalizing it.
