RE: Week 3 Games
Hey Pony, I appreciate you coming over and interacting. I've gone over to ponyfans and read several posts. Is SMU still considered a Christian college or would you consider it a secular school with the Methodist name attached? I thought we may have some commradory, both being "Christian" colleges, but I found numerous posters taking shots at Liberty.

We are not a Christian school, but it remains in our name.

If anyone is at the game tomorrow our tailgate scene is top notch. People will welcome you with open arms on the boulevard, and most likely offer beverages

Wish I could be there. The best two tailgating spots I've ever been to is Ole Miss in the grove and Alabama. Both exactly like you said, we were asked probably 30-40 times to join tailgates and sample food. Both sites were fantastic. Biggest disappointment was LSU and GA. Both had obnoxious fans.

So our university president came from Ole Miss, and he is the one that started our boulevard tailgate experience. It is a mini grove.

RE: Week 3 Games
Quick reaction to the game:

Another poor showing by the offense and special teams. Converting third downs was yet again a problem. Masha is bad and I'm glad he was replaced. He just couldn't hit a receiver that wasn't five yards away. I don't know why they didn't keep running the option that worked well when Masha was in. Calvert wasn't great but he gave us a chance. He moved the ball down the field and was pretty solid. He had the brutal turnover at the end but wasn't as bad as Masha's.

That field goal kick was so bad. It wasn't that far of a kick (38 yards or so, right?) and it was closer to the sideline in the back of the end zone than it was to the upright.

I was happy to see our penalties are down from the Virginia Tech game, however, the ones we had were killer. The pass interference that negated an interception. The illegal man downfield that negated a touchdown. The "kick" that negated a two point conversion. The pair of roughing the passer penalties. The face mask penalty. And don't forget running into the returner catching the punt that negated a potential touchdown. Why are we always the more penalized team? That's on coaching.

I liked our turnovers on defense. I didn't like our run defense that left gaping holes. SMU had way too many big plays but we didn't allow many points. We bent but didn't break for the most part.

This is a game we could have won, probably should have won. We had our opportunities but blew them. Is that a reflection on the coaching, on the FBS versus FCS, being an away team, having inexperienced quarterbacks, or what? We better learn quick because we have a big challenge again in Jacksonville State.

So I was 2 points off my 17 point win prediction. The game should not have been close however. SMU out gained Liberty almost 600 to 280? Our RS freshman QB just likes throwing picks in the endzone. If SMU had a QB that could complete a pass, we would be in great shape.

I do think the kid that replaced Masha at QB gave y'all a much better chance to win.

My heart has hope, but my head tells me this could be a long season. But then I remember the BSC isn't exactly filled with juggernauts. But we have no offense and a defense that gives up tons of yards.
