Lasecki Anchors SMU’s Underrated Offensive Line

SMU has a decidedly underrated core of returning offensive lineman. This week, I have been re-watching the game films from last season, which can be a bit painful at times. A definite bright spot has been the play of our returning boys in the trenches.   Returning starting center and three-year starter Taylor Lasecki is a particular asset, both physically and mentally. He is a scrapper...

College Football’s Handsomest Player Leaves SMU Program

Several weeks ago, I brought you the story of Chad Morris’ selection by me as the second handsomest coach in the AAC. It turns out that me is not the only person to notice what a guapo bunch of fellers that SMU suits up every Saturday. SMU Junior Safety Myles Crosby exudes sufficient raw animal magnetism to make a lucrative career out of modeling.  In fact, the Colleyville Heritage...

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...

Deion Sanders is an NFL legend, a two-time Super Bowl champ, an eight-time All-Pro and the king of masterfully roasting his son on a public platform.
