SMU - post spring

The Ponies are into their second year, and into their third million dollars, of The Revival-- or at least they hope so. To that end, it looks like the offense is functioning better than it was a year ago; (all the stories are in this link except those linked to below). The outlook for their awful defense isn't so rosy: the Mustangs are trying on an Estonian world-champ discus thrower at DE for size, and may move their best wide-out (Emmanual Sanders) to cornerback. Justin Willis, now a WR, broke an ankle and will be out at least until fall. Bo Levi Mitchell says his head isn't swimming with trying to learn the plays, like it was last year. The defense, especially the secondary, looks better some of the time, and worse others.

In the spring game, the defense looked much sharper than it has in years, especially in the secondary. June Jones was most pleased with the number of interceptions thrown-- zero-- and says if his QBs throw few interceptions, they'll win a lot of games. Bradley Haynes may be BLM's go-to receiver in '10.
