Yep...we want people NOT associated with SMU wearing that Triple D Pony shirt around town and coming out to Ford. There will be plenty of seats available for most games

Earlier in the thread...please stop it with the utter nonsense and impossibility of a baseball team.

I was in that emergency meeting that was called where he announced how we had to cut men's track. And he cried doing it.

So what other men's sport do you cut to bring back baseball? Swimming, soccer? Or add another women's team? You guys drive me crazy with this baseball [deleted].

Is there any possible scenario where Hart gets fired? We all agree that his performance sucks as an AD, but is this enough?

His job is to be an AD. His performance sucks. What more do you need. Would you not be fired if your performance sucked?
SMU's first president, Robert S. Hyer, selected Harvard Crimson and Yale Blue as SMU's colors to symbolize SMU's high academic standards. We are one of the few Universities to have school colors with real meaning...and we just blow them off.

Don't need free admission but family packages dirt cheap and finding a way to make the Boulevard more inclusive is the path to really becoming Dallas' college team...just like the Cowboys had to beg for fans before they became a playoff caliber team


Yeah, right, we need the Boulevard to include 5% Asians, 12% African Americans, 17% Hispanic, about 53% "whites", and maybe 1% Indian (Native Americans, Indigenous, etc). Then our football program will find life again. Is this somewhere near that word "woke" that I keep hearing?


WTF! You people love telling on yourselves!

Right! This is as out of left field as that post on the "Dallas Team" thread.

To that end SMU needs to host a BBQ cook-off on the boulevard. Invite all of Dallas to show off their BBQ skills. I'm sure people would rally around that. Winners announced at halftime of the game. Tie it in to a game we wear the Dallas jerseys. Maybe even make it a recurring theme. Whenever we play Tulane have a cajun cook-off where the best gumbo, etouffee, etc. wins and winners are announced at halftime. Good food appeals to pretty much everyone so many would probably show up to taste the good food. Many would also show up to compete and bring along friends and family and stay for the game to find out who wins. It's not that complicated, we simply need to brainstorm ideas and put them to action.

Doepey was BAD, with long HIKES, 1.5 miles from the back of the Cotton Bowl parking with no
trams when there were additional attractions like the parrot guy with broken flip flops performing
at the out door venue at the same time as the NAVY game as 1 example.

Rick Hart was all over this from the first when, Sonny, the in love with his childhood sweetheart
school guy wasn't denying he was flirting, and wanting to stray :!: Result was Lashlee, as new head
coach in record time, who gave us a 10 win offense, and Sonny got most of the credit :!:
As the Sonny slowly sets in the west.

If we don’t have the bal#s to fire Hart, how do we help him get another job? How much does he make?

SMU sports are doing as well as they ever have right now. How many other years can we say we’ve been ranked multiple weeks in football and been a probable tourney team in basketball? Serious question.
