From Mustangs To Colts…

by Steve Orsini

I was glad to see the Indianapolis Colts win the AFC Championship game last night. Nothing against the Patriots, but Colts’ owner Jim Irsay is an SMU grad - and a member of our 1978 football team. He has continued to be a friend to SMU after his graduation, as well, creating a scholarship at SMU for Indiana students. The “Irsay Scholars,” as they’re known, receive four-year, full tuition scholarships with room and board at SMU.

Here's a great photo of Mr. Irsay hoisting the Lamar Hunt Trophy, which is named after another great SMU alum.

Congrats to Jim and the Colts and best of luck in the Super Bowl!

And while we’re talking about Colts and Mustangs, I want to let everyone know that we’re getting ready to kick off our annual Morgan Campaign for the Mustang Club, so be ready for our call. We want to be top-25 in all we do around here and that includes fundraising, too, so we’ll need your help.

I’ll see everyone Wednesday at Moody at the men’s basketball game verses Tulane. Until then, GO MUSTANGS!
