Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson rips SMU program
"It's like we're just sitting there talking about the death penalty that happened 30 years ago. It's time to get over that. I talked to four players yesterday. All of us are frustrated former players," Dickerson said. "All of us said the same thing. If they don't want to do anything, just kill the program."
Dickerson said SMU would have trouble against some high school teams.
“I guarantee there are some high schools around the country that could beat them," Dickerson said. "There’s no doubt. They just don’t have the talent.”
Dickerson also had thoughts about programs breaking rules in college football. The SMU football program was given the "Death Penalty" in 1987 after repeated NCAA violations, including paying athletes to play.
"They still cheat. All of the schools still cheat," Dickerson said. "The big schools still cheat. You think Texas isn't cheating? You think A&M isn't cheating? You think Alabama ain't cheating? Yeah right. That's laughable…You ain't cheating, you ain't trying."
