Not sure if crowds will improve at SMU, but the expectations are surely jacked up. Remember, the Herd goes to Gerald J. Ford Stadium on Nov. 20, and has yet to win in the state of Texas.
Speaking of the state of Texas, my trolling for UTEP news was sidetracked by an item about a stray bullet hitting the campus from across the Rio Grande. A geographical reference: West Paisano along the border on that end of El Paso, between the river and I-10. Part of UTEP, including Bell Hall, is high above all that. You can look off behind the pressbox side of the Sun Bowl into Juarez. … scary stuff.
Back to football: A good roundup, bearing in m ind that the Miners are ditching the 3-3-5 defense.
I might post something about Tulane, I might not. Bob Toledo may or may not be coaching the Green Wave on Nov. 27.
