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.

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.

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.
