I still remember missing out on Brock Berlin when he decided to transfer from Florida and SMU was a finalist for his transfer destination. In the words of Jeff Reinebold while we aren't where we want to be or where we can be, it sure is great to no longer be where we were!

Next year will be interesting. The only team on paper (like most years) that has any potential respect for us getting a W is TCU. ACU, Latech, NTCC are going to be considered must wins for Top 25.

Our conference schedule is tough @ Cincy, Memphis and Houston. Our home schedule isn't a cake walk either. However if SD wants to prove that we are improving then we need to see some big wins. For us to be Top 25, we can only afford to really lose to Cincy and TCU and win the rest and go to the AAC championship otherwise I say we leveled off.
Fire Garrett Riley. His playbook for opposing teams 1) Run 2) Run 3) Throw. You're welcome.

I think we are exactly where we want to be. This last season had a chance to be magical without all the Covid Crazy. We now have a football "program" which is going to have a shot each and every year. While I agree with the above that 2021 might be rebuild and 2022 looks very promising, we still have a shot to be pretty darn good next year if things work out better than expected. The "potential" is now on campus every year.

No doubt that we are in much better shape now with expectations for our rebuilding year being 6 wins.
