June Jones: What Pony Express?

My folks have gone to most every single SMU home game this year, and they're all ready to pony up for 2010 season tickets following this evening's 26-21 win over Tulane. Big Hersch, who enjoyed the extra legroom during this less-than-sold-out Saturday, is a Mustang Class o' 66; his good pal and car-pool buddy this season's been Don Woodward, who was an All-American swimmer on the Hilltop in the late 1950s. The two of 'em are awful proud of the team's return from death-penalty wasteland in advance of its first bowl game since '84; so too is the head coach, as evidenced by his post-game comments.
