    SMU is a school with an undergrad enrollment of 6,700 and we had over 20k in attendance for a week night game against a terrible Tulane team.  

    I get that a lot of folks here hate SMU but if we want to play the ratio game then a school with nearly 40k undergrads and having 13k against a pretty decent Liberty squad on a Saturday evening is well.....ya know.

    Let me say this just one more time.  You are smack dab in the middle of a city of 1.3 MILLION people.   
     

    Your enrollment is irrelevant…”Dallas’ Team”  can’t get .001% of Dallas to give two 💩’s

    EVERYONE, outside of a few flat earthers in University Park, knows that this is the ceiling of potential at SMU

    Here’s the article (if you can get behind the pay wall)

    Who in their right mind would sign such a contract?  Too many variables that could effect a schedule and record out of that coach’s controls some times. 

    Your job as a coach is to win football games.  Nothing more, nothing less.  
     

    My job is to address crime and disorder in the municipality where I am Police Chief.  The economy, unemployment, relative education levels of citizens, citizen carelessness and refusal to secure property, and even weather can effect crime…not a single one of them is acceptable as an excuse if the crime rate spikes and people can’t feel safe in their homes.  I adapt, or I am shown the door.

  4. I swear, some of you would be a real bummer to hang out at a bar with.

    The idea that SMU brings "nothing" to the Big 12 is silly.  SMU has built a Top 40 football program under Dykes and is committed to facilities upgrades north of $150M over the next five years.  Top 60 academic institution with a lot of ties to Fortune 500 in one of the largest cities in the nation.  $2.3 billion endowment.  Presidential Library.  More alums of Big 12 schools live in DFW than any other metro area in the nation.   

    I'm not saying SMU is a no-brainer.  We certainly have our warts as a small private school with less than 7,000 undergrads but to say we would add nothing is dumb.  

    I can see the conversations now.  
     

    Big XII member 1:  “We should invite SMU!  We have tons of DFW area alumni and they’d take over Ford Stadium every time we play there.”  
     

    Big XII commissioner:  “Tell me why you couldn’t just schedule them and do that now?”

    I'm still weary if this is true. Let's not get ahead of ourselves until we see something more substantial. If you think about it adding 3 more Texas teams seems like a big question mark. 

    It’s a good move for the AAC if, and only if, they believe the MWC may want to get into Texas.  This move removes DFW, Houston, and San Antonio from their options.
