That would be a nice plan, SID, can we get more info on the dynamics for tonight? If it is just going to be a practice open to the public with everyone standing around, not the best environment for kids.
Probaly won't happen...BUT...maybe it will!!

I honestly think SMU would prefer nobody actually goes. Kind of sad.


I honestly think you are uninformed and unaware why it was changed. Kind of sad, honestly.

Give me a break. I have seen the weather forecast.

SMU has done virtually nothing to promote the game which tells me it is not important to them.

No updated information on the website about concessions or activities. It still talks about inflatables in the south end zone.

No gameday posts today. Nothing on social media today.

The fact the game isn't in Ford means they aren't planning on making it a big deal - which is fine if that's what they want, but it sure doesn't seem like a good way to get more people interested in your program to me which I still find sad. Just my opinion.

Uniformed and unaware as usual, honestly! You can't help those who can't help themselves, honestly!

A compilation of your typical posts: "Great" , "Wow" . "Yeah", " You should". Always very informed and helpful, honestly!

Dude, just do your research about why they are having it on the practice fields before you post uniformed crap.

For a rescheduled event... I was super impressed with the turn out. There were at least 100 - 120 or so at Dr. Turner's Hilltop/Presidents Society function in the Club.

Then to go outside and see thousands standing around the field to watch live plays. Not a game but good competition.

OK, here the most impressive part. Moving the day and time we still had hundreds of recruits there. Literally, everywhere you looked you saw the lanyard on some young prospect. I met three coaches that brought kids.

All in all a very good turnout.

Agree with SMUpony94 and Bus. Great atmosphere last night and very enjoyable.

So much more intimate on the practice field. Made you feel a part of the whole thing. It was excellent.

Yeah everything ended up working out pretty well!!!

And to be fair in response to my earlier criticism maybe SMU actually has a good read on the interest in the program so they intentionally didn't publicize it too much since they knew 8-10k in attendance would potentially overwhelm Pettus.

I hope they sold a lot of season tickets and I can't wait for the season!

Go Ponies!!!
