SMU Football Vs Texas Tech At NCAA College 2010

Filled under:

The difference of course is a lousy start and a lousy defense. In 2006 SMU probably had the best defense it has had in 20 years and it still gave up points in bunches. Make no mistake-in the future, SMU will only go as far as its defense takes it the difference between 2006 and 2008, of course, is wins.

The SMU made a huge leap in head coach June Jones’ second year on the job as they went from 1-11 in college football picks to an 8-5 bowl team that defeated Nevada in the Hawaii Bowl 45-10. SMU made a huge turnaround last year improving from a 1-11 record in 2008 to 8-5 in 2009. Then the Pony’s blew out Nevada in the Hawaii Bowl by the score of 45-10.

This attitude was prevalent not only with the average fan, but also with SMU students who found that getting to Texas Stadium was a problem. A combination of these and other factors led to talk of possibly returning football to the SMU campus even before the NCAA's 1986 action. The return of Mustang Madness to the Hilltop, to which SMU is commonly referred, created logistic questions in the minds of SMU officials. The first being, Do we renovate the existing structure, Ownby Stadium, or do we tear it down and build a new stadium.

The Mustangs turned in the biggest improvement in college football last season when they improved from a  record in Jones' first season to an 8-5 record and a victory in the Hawaii Bowl last season fast forward two seasons.
