2001 sugar bowl was Florida and Miami.

And he was not the Illinois coach in the 2002 sugar bowl.

The best thing was when Meyer would run the Wishbone with Clarence Verdin on the goal line with the Colts before they traded for Eric the Great.

That's putting it mildly. As spectacular as SMU's rise was, the collapse was unlike anything we've ever seen in college football..


I knew a guy who went to SMU in the early 90's - like 1990 and said there would be 5 guys in the stands during the games.

They were taboo even by 1990. And they stunk after the program was gutted. NCAA made it a high school team full of walk-ons.

Not exactly...
They went from private school doormat to winning 10 and 11 games a season. That's like the shy chick coming back from Summer break with boobs. People are gonna notice.

Must have been shocking to see something like that in your 60's

That league had become the Wild West. It was so corrupt that the Devil showed up and said "y'all need to chill the frick out".

Ron Meyer didn’t help kill the SWC. That was J Frank Broyles.
