Tulane University's athletic teams are known as the Green Wave. The name was adopted in 1920, after a song titled "The Rolling Green Wave" was published in the Tulane Hullabaloo, the school newspaper.

From 1893 to 1919 the athletic teams of Tulane were officially known as "The Olive and Blue," for the official school colors. In 1919 the Tulane Weekly, one of Tulane's many student newspapers at the time and the predecessor of the Tulane Hullabaloo, began referring to the football team as the "Greenbacks," an unofficial nickname that also led to another: the "Greenies."

The song "The Rolling Green Wave" was written by Earl Sparling, the editor of the Tulane Hullabaloo. The song was a hit with students and fans, and it helped to popularize the name "Green Wave." The name was officially adopted by the university in 1920.

The Green Wave is a proud tradition that is celebrated by students, alumni, and fans alike. The Green Wave is a symbol of strength, determination, and perseverance. The Green Wave is a force to be reckoned with on the field and in the stands.
