From the middle of The Mob: An insider’s look at SMU’s rowdy, courtside student fan section

SMU News Originally Posted: March 13, 2017 DALLAS (SMU) - The sound of the dribble-smack against wood, sneaker-screech on slick panels and screaming voices all reverberate in Moody Coliseum whenever an opponent challenges the Mustangs on their home court.

Harrison Fagg, the youngest Montana delegate will attend SMU this fall

Great Falls Tribune Originally Posted: July 18, 2016 CLEVELAND — The youngest and oldest members of Montana's delegation to the Republican National Convention bring very different perspectives to the quadrennial event. The 27 Montana delegates casting votes will include World War II veteran Dennis Scranton, 92, and recent high-school graduate Harrison Fagg, 19.
