SMU travels to UNT this week. Also, Orsini made more staff changes. To give you an idea why, read the stats in this article. The numbers are not good. None of them.
Former UNT coach Matt Simon once said he would play SMU anytime and anywhere, including a Safeway parking lot. UNT has wanted to play SMU for years and years. So why the heck are they not traveling to Ford in 2006?
Now, why did I discuss both of these in the same post? It is simple. The idea that SMU travels to UNT this week is ridiculous. It is moronic scheduling by a athletic department that was, obviously, in complete disaray. If you ask me, more scheduling changes will need to be made in the future.
I hate to see anybody let go. But anybody that suggests that major changes were not necessary at SMU was fooling themself.
Now for my schedule: On Thursday, I hop on a plane to Las Vegas. I am seriously considering staying blind as to the UNT result until I can listen to the radio broadcast on the archives. Since we are talking about Vegas, the odds of me blogging from Thursday to Sunday: 10 to 1; over/under total posts during that time: 2.
