Will they take the conference again this year ? Will the Dpaker be ae good this year-ae bs was last year or will ne be even better? How will Kyle Rote' do this season? These are just a few of the questions that people woukl like to tiavc answered. n L : To say that tjie tnighty Mustangs have an-edge on the conference crown would be sticking nay neck out. the way I look at it, there are seven teams thnt could take the Conference and, as the gamblers have found! the Southwest Con- * ferehee is about as easy to predict ., as Toxas weather. To predict the tonference champs before the sec ond week—far t November is just ^ plain foolish. ' 1 However, SMU does look like they will have another mighty good : team this year. With seven regulars returning from the championship eleven of 194# and , „with fourteen other 1948 letter-' ' men available, the Mustangs of 11949 should, prove to be another atjfing-team. * ]■.. But there is no over-confidence > ' in the Pony; camp, for call the narrow victories over A&M, Arkansas, and Baylor, the loaa to Misssuri, and the tie with , TCU. Both/the coaches and the .{dayera realize that the 1949 .. team could be just as good a club as the 1948 comlrinatldh and still > lose several games. The Mustangs have a wlvedule this ifear that will really put them • to thc : test of whether they have A i championsnip team or not. Be- J 4, sides the conference games, the j Ponies take on Wake Forest, Mis souri, Kentucky and Notre Dame, all of which rank high nationally. The big advantage of the SMU schedule is that they play, eight games in Dallas. A&M at College . ^Station, and TCU at Ft. Wortirarc \ the only out of town games in the Poniqp’ book for 1949. What about material ? tVelT, let’s j take a look. The Dopkcr will biy [there trying for American 1 honbrs again add we Will probably hear a lot about the “Human U 1 Tank", Kyle Rote.

In the backfield, there will be such veterans as Doak Walker, Dick McKissack, Kyle Rote,- Frank Payne and Gene Roberts, but the coaches are hoping that Frsd Benners, Pat Knight, Henry Stortcnwerck, Val Joe Walker, “Rusty" RUssell, John Champion, Bill Weatherford abd others will perform well enough to give the regulars considerable rest.
