Out rebounded 56-30 today. Hunt's meaningless three prevents a 50 point loss, but the 47 point margin still reigns as the largest margin of defeat in SMU basketball history

But this game is reminiscent of the Boise State game that sealed Dement's fate. I don't think it will change the result, but it very well could make it a more intense decision for Hart, Miller and whoever else is involved in the process.


We all need to do our part. Besides sending my check to the Mustang Club today, I'm going to buy lottery tickets in hopes of winning the big one and putting up the $$$ to buy out Jank and bring in someone who might be able to rebuild this train wreck!

Will the men do anything about the athletics/sports department?

Not a single guy in double figures today and as bad a game as he had, Whitt was still our leading rebounder with 7 boards. McBlunt goes 3-17 from the field. Dixon 1-9. Team 17-69. Really impressive effort today!

Yep, when McBlunt is off like he was today, this team is in deep doo doo.

Charg and Mike with 4 rebounds between them didn't help.

jank blamed a lot of the loss on cold shooting and inability to defend tacko bc we don’t have anyone tall enough. I seem to remember throttling tacko and ucf in years past without having 7 footers. Laughable

SMU basketball sucks again. And I don't think we get better any time soon. At least not as long Jank is still on the payroll. He would rather lose with an excuse than win to prove his excuses to be a fallacy.

I'm done for the year. I'm done supporting this until they make a change.

Exactly! We've not had a guy anywhere near Tacko's size in years. Don't remember him playing against Moreira who would have still spotted him 8 inches.

I'd like to see Bamba Fall against Tacko Fall.

battling cousins...Bamba would have schooled him early but Tacko has gotten stronger and has improved more than Bamba did over his career.

Just looked it up: Bamba Fall is now 32 (how is that possible?) and playing professionally for TLÜ/Kalev in Tallinn, Estonia.

In the home game vs. UCF, the Ponies lost by six and were outrebounded by only one. Mike and Chargois had just three fouls each and played 39 and 35 minutes. No J-Foster in that one either.

Got UCF after a close loss at Cinci and a tourney bid on the line. However, SMU had just dominated UConn inside but had no answer to a team with a real inside presence.
