A Friend of Unfair Park sends word that SMU's athletic director, Steve Orsini, has popped on to Mustang Musings to post his own two cents concerning the firing of Phil Bennett and his 14-48 mustache. Very riveting stuff, as in:
I mean it. We will win at SMU. I never would have come to the Hilltop if I didn’t truly believe that. I know we have all the pieces to put together a top-25 football program.
We are part of a wonderful University. We are in a great location in the heart of Dallas. We have state-of-the-art facilities. We have passionate fans. We have tremendous student-athletes. I am immediately setting out to find the person who can put all those pieces together to make us a winner.
