    SMU Football 2010 Preview

    Yes, it's that time of year, football fans. The beginning of the season is fast approaching and fall is in the air. Last year, June Jones worked his magic to turn around a woeful 1-11 SMU team in 2008 into a very respectable 8-5 in 2009. After a tearful retirement press conference from June Jones, SMU hired a little known coach in Coach Wreck'em. Coach Wreck'em hopes to build on the successes of the 2009 season and secure a C-USA championship. Let's take a look at the roster for the season.

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
    Name Year OVR
    Kyle Padron SO 78
    Braden Smith SO 72
    J.J. McDermott JR 70
    Steve Kaiser FR 66


    After a spectacular freshman season in which Kyle Padron threw for over 2000 yards in 7 games, he is the leader of this offense. Behind him are solid backups in Braden Smith and former starter J.J. McDermott. Steve Kaiser will be a project likely to redshirt this year.

    Zach Line SO 78
    Bryce Lunday JR 74
    Chris Butler SR 73
    Darryl Fields FR 67


    For a Run and Shoot team, SMU has a surprisingly good stable of halfbacks. Zach Line, a LB turned running back will step into the role of starter this year after serving as a back up last year. Bryce Lunday will serve as a good change of pace back along with Chris Butler.

    FB and TEs
    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
    Name Year OVR
    Billy Dugal SO 68(FB)
    Bradley Haynes JR 70(TE)


    Tight End and Fullback are the two least used positions on the team. Neither Dugal nor Haynes are notable. Nothing to see here

    WRs
    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
    Name Year OVR
    Aldrick Robinson SR 83
    Terrance Wilkerson JR 81
    Cole Beasley JR 77
    A'Darius Medford SR 76
    Darius Johnson SO 74


    The Run and Shoot offense centers around the wide receiver position, and SMU's strongest position is its wideouts. Aldrick Robinson and Terrance Wilkerson have been tasked with replacing SMU's top threat last year. They aer both very experienced and are 2 of the best players on the team. Cole Beasley and A'Darius Medford are also experienced receivers playing in the slot. Darius Johnson will still receive a lot of playing time this season despite being the 5th receiver. There are 5 other wideouts, but they are all >74 OVR.

    The Line

    Tackles
    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
    Name Year OVR
    Kelvin Beachum JR 83(LT)
    Kelly Turner JR 74(LT)
    J.T. Brooks JR 79(RT)
    Brian Collins SO 71(RT)


    Guards and Centers
    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
    Name Year OVR
    Josh LeRibeus JR 79(LG)
    Jordan Free SO 74(LG)
    Chris Atchison SO 69(LG)
    Bryce Tennison JR 76(RG)
    Jimmy Chase SO 73(RG)
    Ashton Duhe FR 69(RG)
    Blake McJunkin JR 79(C)
    Joey Fontana SO 73(C)


    The SMU offensive line is returning 4 out of 5 starters from last season, and it shows. Kelvin Beachum and J.T. Brooks are solid tackles. Josh LeRibeus and Bryce Tennison are also returning starters that are very solid. Center Blake McJunkin is the only new starter for the SMU line, but he has served as a backup for the 2 years prior to 2010

    *Defense coming soon!
