coach Phil Bennett said Tuesday that if students happen to miss evening classes to attend next Tuesday's game vs. UAB, which is being aired on ESPN2, that's alright with him.
"I'll be you all of those students have skipped class before," Bennett said. "I don't want to get in trouble for saying this, they would have my excuse if they didn't go. I'm not sure if that's good enough."
Bennett was kind of joking, but SMU needs all the help it can get heading into its final four games. With a three-game homestand and needing two wins to get to a bowl, the Mustangs are in a rare position this late in the season to control their future.
"This is where the money is made," Bennett said.
