Not sure the respective HOAs in and around Highland Park are going to take this without a fight and some lawyering up, but SMU is putting on its Cougar-best outfit to prep for what is actually a highly anticipated edition of the Iron Skillet game next week in Dallas.
On Monday, SMU will make #BeatTCU yard signs and t-shirts available to the first 1,000 fans who show up at the Loyd All Sports Center at noon on Monday, Sept. 24. Those signs better be up to code, people.
I have actually been looking forward to this game since SMU upset TCU last year at Amon G. Carter, 40-33, in OT. If you recall, TCU head coach Gary Patterson had some choice words for SMU coach June Jones a few days after the game, as well as the officials. Click here for a stroll down memory lane.
Gary said then: "June Jones said we never change. I think June Jones is 1-8 against TCU since he was at Hawaii (and SMU). I don't think he's changed that much either. ... I don't go there."
He also added: "Don't look for any help coming from us ever again. SMU got a lot of help from us over the last three or four years. They are not going to get any help about a game or a conference; they are going to get no help from Gary Patterson. Don't ask me about anything. We've bent over backwards to help them because that's what I believe in."
Tickets for the game are available at SMUMustangs.com or by calling 214-SMU-GAME.
