  1. I know it was a very disappointing game. There were still some nice player performances that need to be recognized.
  2. In 2015 a group of fans on GoMeanGreen.com put together a fund to fly a Go Mean Green banner over SMU and Ford Stadium prior to the game.
  3. We stopped SMU on their initial drive with great defensive effort on their home turf. A snap over their punters head and we have the ball in scoring position. We run THREE straight running plays right up the middle and are forced to take a field goal. We all knew at that moment we were in trouble. We knew at that moment the "Uptempo" talk was talk and we were the same team with the same coaching mentality of conservative offense, put a heavy load on our defense and hope the other team makes more mistakes and turnovers. It's defeatist, and as a fan it is extremely painful to watch. Again, mu
  4. Who will be the first to put points on the board against SMU?
  5. The SMU Mustangs are a team clearly looking to reestablish their football program following a 2014 season where they finished an embarrassing 1-11 record. There is a reason for optimism this season. During week one of this season, the Mustangs seemingly made huge strides in their 56-21 loss to the highly ranked Baylor Bears. The best thing the Mustangs could have hoped for last week was to just keep the game close. That is exactly what the Mustangs offense did for the first half of the game, trading touchdowns with the powerhouse of the Big 12 Conference. It was the second half when the Mus
  6. Just saw on Facebook that the student ticket allotment is officially sold out. Great news!

  8. Has anyone seen these? If so kudos to UNT for getting them out there!
  9. SMU opened the year with a loss to Baylor but will look to bounce back in Week 2 against a rival. Here are five things SMU fans should know about North Texas. 4. Young defense — If SMU’s offense looks anything like it did in the first half against Baylor, it should be able to exploit a relatively inexperienced North Texas defense. The Mean Green bring back just two starters on a defense that gave up 30 points per game last season. Not only that, the young unit will have to adapt to a new defensive coordinator. North Texas hired Chris Cosh this offseason after John Skladany retired at the end o

  11. SMU will move forward without a key piece along its offensive line. Daniel McCarty, SMU’s starting left guard, was injured in the first half against Baylor and did not return. He spent the second half on the sideline with his leg in a brace and has been ruled out for the remainder of the year. read more: http://collegesportsblog.dallasnews.com/2015/09/smu-left-guard-daniel-mccarty-to-miss-remainder-of-season.html/
  12. I understand that the main purpose in moving to a more "uptempo" offense this year is to get off more plays. I wonder, if in this particular game it is the best strategy. It will be an interesting chess match on Saturday. We have always had a potent running game. We have some terrific running backs and depth. It seems to me a ground attack that eats up the clock and keeps Matt Davis off the field could bode well. It also would give our defense more rest and make adjustments since they haven't yet played a real game and been in real game situations. If we get our offense going and can run
  13. On facing North Texas: “It’s their opener. I know those guys will be extremely ready to go, especially opening up the season. I’m going to challenge our guys with the embarrassment that they had up there. Watching that game from last year was very disheartening. Our guys will be excited about getting back on the field for a Saturday night game and perform in front of our fans and our crowd, which I thought was outstanding.” On if having a bye week to open the season gives North Texas an advantage: “I guess it’s a little bit of an advantage because they got to see the personnel we have on the f
  14. I think you consider shadowing Davis this entire game. He can hurt you with his scrambling. I also agree with other who said to keep him in the pocket and make him beat you with his arm. Cosh needs to really prepare for misdirection in this one... They did a fair amount of it against Baylor but I suspect they will throw the kitchen sink at us. And yes that includes the dreaded 1st play of the game bomb. I promise you they are going to run that.

  16. SMU's offense has run the Run & Shoot under former coach June Jones ever since 2008. It wasn't always consistent, but at times it worked as a great equalizer and allowed them to pull some outstanding upsets like their victory over TCU in 2011. The Mustangs had never been the elite offense that fans had hoped for when Jones was hired, but they had not been outright bad except for the last part of 2013 when Garrett Gilbert was out with an injury. The Mustangs had not had a long run of failure by any stretch under Jones, but you can easily see a plateau and steady decline as the talent coming
  17. Posted by Stallion: If 1/3rd of their projection of 15,000 come to the game that would be something like $300,000, 2/3 $600,000 and 3/3 $900,000 (based on $60 spent on tickets etc). Well we shall see as I have my doubts-hey if we are going to play them for 7 more years might as well spice it up a little. They used to bring huge crowds when Hayden Fry was there and games were played at Texas Stadium. 5,000+ would be great and add the atmosphere http://www.ponyfans.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=78702&sid=8c76e2e54d10bbcac604a9a8d3182a30
  18. From everything we heard on the podcast tonight with RV, as well as other well placed sources... this may well be one of the best away game crowds we have had in a long time (perhaps ever?)... 26 student busses, the ENTIRE band, the ENTIRE drill team, cheerleaders etc... I know some were disappointed with how last year turned out (or started?) but I would ask that you reconsider your position on attending this SMU game. It will be a great game atmosphere. In a weird way, the frustration we all had about opening the college season with a bye may play into providing even more interest and suppo
