Super Bowl ‘Stangs

by Steve Orsini

Just a quick word of congratulations to Jim Irsay and the Colts on winning the Super Bowl last night. As I mentioned in a recent post, Jim is an SMU grad and was a member of our 1978 football team. He continued his support of SMU after his graduation, creating a scholarship at SMU for Indiana students.

SMU now has two alums that have hoisted the Super Bowl Trophy - Jim Irsay and Lamar Hunt. How many schools can say that?

And speaking of Lamar, it was great to see his wife Norma out at midfield for the coin toss. Norma and Lamar had attended each of the previous 40 Super Bowl games together - including Super Bowl IV where Kansas City topped Minnesota - and I was so happy to see her at the game.

On the heels of “Super Sunday,” we hope to have a “Super Wednesday” this week for National Signing Day. I know Coach Bennett is excited and I am, too. Come out and join us for our Signing Day event starting at 5:15 p.m. on the 7th at the Radisson. Coach Bennett will talk about the class and then we’ll all head over to Moody for the men’s basketball game as we host Houston.

Until next time, GO MUSTANGS!
