SID's Post-game Press Release

I do hope everyone clicks thisLINK and reads the press release and recap of the Baylor game. Here is a taste:
Baylor appeared on the verge of giving it back by fumbling a punt at its 19, but the hapless Mustangs - who haven't beaten a nonconference foe since 2000 - managed only a field goal.

FYI, one of the definitions of "hapless" is:
adj : deserving or inciting pity; "a hapless victim";

Not saying it isn't accurate. I am just suggesting it isn't the best term for the SID to use.

Don't you realize that this isn't really an SID release, but an Associated Press story that was written by someone not associated with SMU in any way? BTW, it is common for official athletic websites to run AP stories.
