Is SMU the hottest college football team in Texas? No. Absolutely not. However, beating Arkansas State and then North Texas this past weekend does give the Ponies a 2-0 record, which unfortunately is better than UT at the moment. But obviously, wins over Arkansas State and North Texas are nothing to write home about. So, why the hell am I blogging about SMU two weeks into the season?
Because of the newest tradition they unveiled this weekend aka the Turnover Bottle Service:
Is there anything more SMU than Turnover Bottle Service? The Ponies absolutely knocked it of the park with this tradition.
And I get SMU did not invent celebrating a turnover. Miami of course famously has the Turnover Chain:
This past weekend, Akron debuted the Turnover Pencil:
And UNC busted out the Turnover Belt:
But I just don’t think any tradition quite nails what the school and program is all about more than SMU’s Turnover Bottle Service At The Club. Just too perfect.
