Former SMU Mustangs Dickerson, Carter, and Morris Still Dominate Tecmo Bowl

Tecmo Bowl is objectively the greatest nine-man football video game of all time. Released for Nintendo in 1989, Tecmo Bowl was the first video game to feature the real names of NFL players, even though it left an end and a back off the field on every play. I spent several middle and high school summers playing far too much Tecmo Bowl and far too much of its successor, Tecmo Super...

UCLA Eliminates SMU on Questionable Goaltending Call

Was this a goaltend? https://t.co/SZ5PAwOgAL — Rob Dauster (@RobDauster) March 19, 2015 That’s the shot that decided UCLA’s fate against SMU. That was ruled a goaltend, which gave the Bruins a 60-59 lead. SMU’s Nic Moore missed a pair of shots on the other end for the final. That is certainly a questionable call. It looked live like the shot was way off but it kind of...

PHOTO: SMU Head Coach Chad Morris Shares New Alternate Helmet on Twitter

Last season was about as forgettable as a season could be for the SMU Mustangs. The team lost its head coach during the season, at one time had better luck scoring on defense and special teams than it did offense, and ended up finishing 1-11 when the season was done and over with. So--it stands to reason that it may be hard to generate some excitement surrounding the team.So how...

Vine: Bobby Knight Yells At SMU Fans To Sit Down During Broadcast

Bobby Knight was known for his temper during his coaching career, and based on tonight’s SMU-Temple broadcast, he is still a pretty fiery guy. A big three by the Mustangs’ Nic Moore brought the home fans to their feet, and some evidently got in Knight’s line of sight. He didn’t move his microphone or wait until a break to reprimand them—he did it live on air. If you go...
