SMU Coaching candidates part 3

Continuing the series of looking at potential new coaches on this hilltop, we have had some interesting debate over some of the names on the last two versions of the list, while this list may seem far-fetched to some and kind of crazy to others, these are just names of potential candidates who could be interviewed. It doesn’t mean these guys are even really in the running, I am sure the real…

SMU Coaching Candidates Part 2

SMU Coaching Candidates Part 2

SMU Ford StadiumAs I am continuing my look at coaching candidates, we are going to look at more names which may be known or unknown at this point. SMU has a long road ahead trying to find that best candidate to carry the Mustangs forward. But they can at least thank June Jones for bring the program back a respectable level. Maybe the next coach can get them to the next level and have them competing for a shot at…

SMU Coaching Candidates

SMU Tom Mason

Interim Head Coach Tom Mason

In the weeks after June Jones surprisingly resigned, there has been a lot of speculation over who could wind up being the next Head Coach on the hilltop. Right now, the Mustangs are in a deep mess and need to look at serious candidates who can bring in some the superb local talent and fire up a fan base which has been very slow to return. While it was a surprise to…

Should Roger Goodell Step Down?

It has been a rough go for the NFL Commissioner as of late, it seems like every day is some new breaking news about something else to only help tarnish the shield. While he has been a tough commissioner to end off the field issues, it is this latest batch of domestic violence stories which have seemed to send him cowering into the corner.

Tough Loss could bring small victories for SMU

Tough Loss could bring small victories for SMU

OSmall Victoriesn a typical Saturday afternoon at Ford Stadium, it was a “moot” point to most fans in attendance the visiting Texas A&M Aggies would walk out of here with a victory. But the underdog Mustangs came out with a fire under their rear end to ignite some excitement from the mostly maroon clad crowd.

The Tarnished Shield

image

When Roger Goodell took over as commissioner he came out and decided to be an “iron fisted” authority figure. He wanted to “protect the shield” and keep all off the field activities to a minimum. At the beginning it seemed to work and things got quiet on the off the field front, but lately, things have been bad for the commissioner and the NFL.

My Thoughts on Ray Rice

I am going to do something different here, and I am going to be very opinionated about this issue and will not hold back from telling it like it is from my perspective. This story has taken a few different twists and turns throughout the whole ordeal and at times I thought something more should be done, I wasn’t going to be critical of anything because obviously the commissioner and the league…

Johnny Manziel; Not ready for the NFL

Johnny Manziel; Not ready for the NFL

image

Johnny Manziel was a good player in college, and was hyped to be a franchise player in the NFL. But we saw this past off season, he is still immature and doesn’t have the poise to do what it takes to succeed in the NFL. He is more interested in the celebrity than he is being a good quarterback.

Then came his biggest blunder in the pre-season where he decided to let some trash talk get under his…

Strong Era Begins with with a Win

Strong Era Begins with with a Win

The Texas Longhorns started the new “Strong Era” with a seemingly impressive win over North Texas on Saturday night. While fans seemed optimistic about the win, and the thoughts of the season going forward, I would tap the breaks on any thoughts this team will blow the doors off the Big 12.

There were a lot of things to be positive about at the end of the game. The defense finally looked good…
