    Tonight at 7 MST on ESPN, the story of SMU getting hit with the death penalty for the 1987 season. Should be very interesting, I'm looking forward to it.

    The Mustangs are on the rise. They hired away the Hawaii coach June Jones and he's really starting to turn them around. (7-6 in 2010 - going to the armed forces bowl) I know Jones' offense is a little gimmicky but you have to give the guy credit for taking a team that had come off of back to back 1 win seasons (07 & 08) and leading them to back to back 7 win seasons (09 & 10).

    James was mentioned quite a bit in the first 30 minutes. Some of these recruiting stories are hilarious.

    - "We showed a recruit a briefcase full of $30K and he said, "Coach, that ain't even close'".

    - Texas A&M bought Eric Dickerson a Trans Am and we called it the "Trans A&M". :lol:

    Trust me Eric took all kinds of ****. CJ was no exception, although Dickerson was worse.

    The Dallas media was slathering over SMU's problems, you know that Kreepsla, Henderson and the other hacks are dreaming of bringing down a program if they could.

    I work with an attractive, single gal in her late 40s. She went to SMU in the early 80s. She said that the head coach had a rolodex of attractive young SMU coeds (including her) who he called upon to "entertain" recruits. The girls viewed this as an honorable duty to their school...

    Who Bobby Collins? He was a dick too. Half the damn team was coke heads, their grades were non existant. Seriously some of them made Byron Hanspard look like Jesus Christ.

    We almost lost Coach Mac to SMU in '88. I wonder how different things would've turned out if Mac left CU to go to SMU.

    I almost have a hard time believing that at one point SMU was a better job than Colorado. Crazy. Guess the 'Stangs got what they deserved.

    Of course, but ultimate victory would be a death penalty.

    SMU was pretty damn good back then. I remember I cried like crazy when Holloway (sp?) and OU killed them, think that was 84 or 85, something like that. OU was flat nasty back then on the field and off. They probably had worse **** go on than SMU, read that book and you will know what I mean.

    I know they were good. It's just weird now. If you are from the younger generation, SMU isn't even close to being on your radar in terms of college football. Maybe my kids will feel the same way about Boise State, assuming they slump back down into anonymity.

    Upstarts come and go. UHouston also used to be good at football. UNLV, St. John's, DePaul... used to be good at basketball. Now all are mostly irrelevant.

    Some small upstarts though, use their success to elevate them to another plane. UMiami and Boston College were small independents that used football to push into bigger and better conferences. In basketball, Gonzaga and Memphis are likely here to stay.

    It doesn't surprise me that Mac may have left CU. While he does bleed the Black and Gold now, you have to remember that he is someone of a deep faith. He founded Promise Keepers in '90 and would have received a lot of support from SMU. I'm sure the boosters and the administration would have supported him on and off the field.

    Nonetheless, I'm glad he stayed he and won us a MNC!
