Six games into the season, SMU was sittin pretty at 5-1 and a win against rival TCU. And the win wasn’t a fluke; SMU deserved it. The miniature horses looked the best they had in 25 years. And then came the collapse. SMU lost in consecutive weeks to Southern Miss and Tulsa, in games where SMU didn’t look sharp at all. Wide open passes were missed, defensive players whiffed, and I was pissed.
This week, however, SMU turned it around against an admittidly horrible Tulane team. Having graduated from Tulane, I can tell you that the average attendance for a football game is 15 drunk students and 35 swamp people. Tulane also doesn’t have a coach, so their game plan consists of running around and doin stuff. The Green Wave’s QB, Griffin, is actually a quality player, considering who he has around him. A 12 TD, 7 INT ratio and a QB rating of 127 is impressive, which was evident when they somehow scored 24 points in the third quarter (after they sobered up), only to get drunk again before the fourth quarter and not score a point.
