    They've got a great coach. He was the guy who took Hawaii to a BCS bowl.

    Absolutely great and an upstanding human being as well. He has an excellent eye for QB's and picked Padron while inactive with a broken hand! That's an eye for talent indeed!

    I hope your X-Mas has been great thus far, eladar!

    June Jones got his start in the run and shoot under Jack Pardee with the Houston Gamblers. He was also a coach under Jerry Glanville for the Houston Oilers and the Atlanta Falcons. funny thing was June Jones replaced Glanville as head coach in Atlanta and the two didn't speak to each other for several years until June hired Glanville to be his Defensive Coordinator at Hawaii.

    After spats the great ones are able to engage in rapproachment! I forsee the Mustangs being able to recruit as well as in the 80's and get back to the glory years. TCU was able to. They should copy that blueprint. I've camped out at SMU stadium with a bunch of cubscouts and had a great time playing football on a real field. Gives you a whole new respect for the game when you find it hard to elude pint sized defensive ends. We had a field goal kicking competition. Farthest I could make one was 30 yards! No pressure either.

    Merry X-Mas, shortcircuit!

    On paper and on film it does not look hopeful, yet it did not either for SMU, almost 14 point underdogs. I really think Texas is a tough customer and can certainly pull the mild upset off!
