Tim Hornibrook has more than 15 years of experience in financial services in Sydney, Australia. In preparation for his professional career, Tim Hornibrook graduated from Tulane University, where he also played football on a scholarship.

In addition to hiring a new head coach, Tulane plans to make changes to its uniforms in the fall of 2016. Since spring practice began, the school has displayed a blue jersey in an area used to host recruits. Coach Willie Fritz also recently tweeted a link to a video that shows off the new uniforms with the blue jersey, two different helmet types (green matte, gray/black matte), blue facemasks, and a throwback logo.

Since 1920, Tulane has been affectionately known as the Green Wave. As expected, the football uniforms have heavily featured green throughout the years. The blue uniforms represent a departure from that tradition, although there is also a dark green variant of the new look. Along with the standard road jersey, there are 48 potential new uniform combinations.

Tulane opens the 2016 season on September 1 on the road against Wake Forest.

A business leader with experience in the financial services and agriculture industries, Sydney, Australia, resident Tim Hornibrook, received a bachelor’s degree from Tulane University, which he attended on a full football scholarship. Although home games were played in the Louisiana Superdome during Tim Hornibrook’s time at Tulane, the school’s games are now played at the university’s own football stadium.

Yulman Stadium’s inaugural game was played on September 6, 2014, the first time in 39 years that a home game was played on Tulane’s Uptown New Orleans campus. Tulane’s original stadium was built in 1926 and was the site of the annual Sugar Bowl as well as Super Bowls IV, VI, and IX. The stadium was condemned upon the opening of the Louisiana Superdome (presently known as the Mercedes-Benz Superdome) in 1975.

The new stadium’s name honors donors Richard and Janet Yulman. Richard Yulman, a member of the Board of Tulane, donated $15 million to the construction of the stadium, a $55 million facility. The opening night of the stadium, the first home game of Tulane’s 2014 football season, boasted a sellout crowd and a full student section. The new stadium has contributed to a significant rise in football game attendance, as well as a new home-field advantage for the team.

A Brief Overview of Australian Rules Football

A financial professional in Australia, Tim Hornibrook most recently oversaw an agricultural funds management portfolio as the executive director of a Sydney-based firm. In his spare time, Tim Hornibrook enjoys watching his children play Australian rules football on a team his wife manages.

Created in Melbourne during the1850s, Australian rules football was founded to help cricket players stay physically fit during the off-season. Cricketer Thomas Wentworth Wills came up with the idea and presented it to the Melbourne Cricket Club, an organization that adopted the concept. The club formulated a committee to establish rules and founded the Melbourne and Geelong football clubs that competed against one another.

Australian rules football spread throughout colonies, drawing in many spectators. As a result, football clubs were founded in Brisbane, Adelaide, and West Coast. With the exception of the depression between 1893 and 1895, which caused a decline in game attendance, the sport has always been popular in Australia.

Today, the contact sport is governed by the Australian Football League, formerly the Victorian Football League. Teams are comprised of 18 players, who play on an oval field with goal posts and behind posts at either end. Players score points by successfully completing a free kick and making goals through the posts.

Tim Hornibrook, an experienced Sydney, Australia, business leader, studied psychology at Tulane University on a football scholarship. In the past, Tim Hornibrook has played rugby at the junior national level.

The games of rugby and American football share a number of similarities. However, the two sports differ in many ways, such as how substitutions are handled during a game. Over the course of an 80-minute rugby match, teams are permitted only seven substitutions. Additional substitutions may be allowed due to injury, while players forced from the field due to penalties and other infractions may not be replaced, resulting in one team playing a man down.

The National Football League, on the other hand, allows teams an unlimited number of substitutions throughout a 60-minute contest. Furthermore, an American football team is never forced to play one man down against an opponent. In the event that a player is ejected from play due to a violation, coaches can immediately insert a new player to take his place.

Tim Hornibrook of Sydney, Australia, is an experienced business leader who has spent the last 15 years working in the financial services industry. Beyond his work in finance and agriculture, Tim Hornibrook enjoys staying active through snowboarding.

Mountains and ski resorts throughout North America, Australia, and New Zealand use trail signs in certain colors and shapes to alert skiers and snowboarders about the level of difficulty of different trails. For example, a mountain’s least-challenging runs are marked with a green circle. Slope gradients for green-circle trails generally do not exceed 25 percent and may be as low as 6 percent. Additionally, green-circle trails are often wide and easy for resorts to keep in good condition.

Intermediate trails, meanwhile, are marked with blue squares. These intermediate trails can reach slope gradients of 40 percent. Although blue-square trails may be slightly more difficult to groom compared to green-circle trails, they are usually the most extensively used runs and make up the majority of trails at a typical resort.

Finally, trails marked with a black diamond should only be attempted by skiers and snowboarders with advanced skills. These exceptionally steep trails are often found in more remote locations on a mountain, making them harder to maintain and adding to their challenge. Some mountains use a double-black-diamond trail sign to mark runs reserved for the world’s most accomplished skiers and boarders.

Australian Rules Football Scoring

Tim Hornibrook has had a long career in the global management of agricultural assets and was formerly as a director of Paraway Pastoral Company, which invests in Australian cattle and sheep production. A resident of Sydney, Australia, Tim Hornibrook makes time to watch his sons play Australian rules football.

Also known as footy and Aussie rules, Australian rules football is a contact sport that dates back to 1858, when the official rules were instated and the first reported game between Melbourne Grammar and Scotch College occurred. The sport has a strong following in the Australian Capital Territory.

Players gather on an oval-shaped field marked with a white line. At the furthest ends of the field are four goal posts that players kick a ball through to score points. Each side has two tall goal posts and two smaller behind posts lined up in a row. A clean kick of the ball through the two larger goal posts on the opponent’s side, without the ball touching the posts, garners six points, while a ball kicked between a goal and behind post awards one point. A ball that hits a goal post is also considered a behind score, which amounts to one point. Behind scores are also given to balls carried through goal posts and ones kicked or forced over the scoring line and between the goal and behind posts.
