In today's world, sports is simply a bigger part than ever before. You can turn on ESPN and listen to and see sports replays and "news" all day long. In most cities there are several sports talk shows that cover sports every minute that they are on the air, and of course now there is social media. This book is an insight to SMU's best athletes, not just football and basketball, but all sports including swimming, golf, tennis, women's sports and even a mention of rowing, equestrian, and volleyball. The author and a committee of knowledgable sports people selected the 100 and it is a solid list. The book is a must read for sports fans or anyone associated with Southern Methodist University. You'll recognize some of the greats: Doak Walker, Lamar Hunt, Jim Krebs, Don Meredith, Kyle Rote, Glynn Gregory, Lance Mcilhenny, Martina Moravcova, Eric Dickerson, Steve Lundquist, Florence Ezeh, Stewart Payne, Michael Carter, and many more. Some copy about players as well as some history of SMU was taken from old newspaper files and the Internet. The players and personalities selected for this book were compiled by a committee of veteran sports writers and others who have close ties to the school. The order in which they appear has no significance on how he or she performed during their time at Southern Methodist University.
