As a reminder, Mustang fans are NOT permitted to communicate with prospective student-athletes. This includes any contact via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or any similar site or method. NCAA bylaws state that all in-person, on- and off-campus recruiting contacts, as well as correspondence and telephone calls, with a prospective student-athlete shall be made only by authorized institutional staff members. SMU is alerting you to the applicable NCAA legislation. Any current or future recruiting contact, as well as correspondence and/or telephone calls must cease immediately.
PonyFans.com ... is really the premier place for Mustang talk on the Web.

Gosh, with our history, I would hope that the subscribers would know better.

The vast majority of people on this earth are stupid.
At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Has this become a problem? Or is this being posted to stop a problem before it occurs? Does anybody know?

Wait until they are Mustangs and then you can talk all the football you want.
But for now... Do not even say HELLO.

But you can make general positive statements about SMU and their athletic prowess on Coaches FB pages that maybe can be seen by prospective recruits.

How does this apply to family friends? Just avoid the subject of college football totally? Is that realistic?
