Some on here went to school with Dandy Don and others like myself with Jerry LeVias, Chuck Hixson, Gary Hammond, et al. And we are still alive, kicking, and supporting the ponies.

Dandy Don was in some of my classes at SMU. That tells you how old I am.

Well that is great. I thought you were from the Pony Express era from your post. Arkpony was there with Dandy Don also. I love his stories from those days.

Dandy Don's GF (and eventually wife) was Lynn Meriweather. My sometime GF knew her and we actually "double dated" once with them. A very nice, funny, humble guy.

Dandy Don had a great sense of humor as he demonstrated on Monday Night Football with Howard Cosell. He was in a speech class I took and he was very comfortable in front of the class.

Thanks for posting those great articles . I've been a mustang fan for 60+ years and my fondest
memory was the "Miracle on Mockingbird". I remember that game like it was yesterday, and get
chill bumps when I watch a replay or read an article about that game or the "89 team . That season
changed my whole outlook on college football......winning became secondary to effort and sportsmanship.
