Wednesday news and notes

The big news is the nice column by Tim Cowlishaw. It is nice character piece and is more about Bennett than the team.

SMU's may not be the biggest football story in this town. But for a change, it's a positive story today with a chance for even better things tomorrow.

Bennett thinks the defense is getting better. SMU leads the conference against the run; in sacks; and in tackles for loss. Other notes: starting DE Justin Rogers is probable; starting DE Cory Muse won't play. KR Jessie Henderson is probable; DeMyron Martin was downgraded to questionable, but I suspect he plays.

Despite tying UCF last week, SMU is still the number one soccer team in the nation. I mention this because they play no. 16 South Carolina tonight on campus.

On the ECU front, it appears deep threat receiver Aundrae Allison will play. Allison was out the past two weeks with a high ankle sprain. Starting corner Travis Williams will play; he was suspended last week for an "incident with school parking officials," whatever that means.

More scouting:

Hey, turns out famous and semi-famous people went to ECU! This list includes Sandra Bullock; if you look on the internet hard enough, you can find pictures where she doesn't look like a rat.

Some chick that was on Survivor named Julie Berry:

The great Emily Proctor who played Ainsley Hayes on The West Wing and is on CSI: Miami, and was apparently in Big Momma's House 2!!!!:

Hasson is one of 148 semifinalists for the Draddy Trophy, an award given for academic and football performance and community leadership.

Here is one award that he can kiss goodbye. Too bad.
