Skip Holtz dismisses team from practice field: The East Carolina football team earned an early departure from the practice field Tuesday night, but it wasn't the sort of dismissal a team gets for overachieving. For the first time in the Skip Holtz coaching era, the Pirates were sent out of the Cliff Moore Practice Complex a full 30 minutes prior to the scheduled end of the session. "I think there are a lot of distractions on campus, and I think there are distractions with them moving out of the dorm today and the students (being) back on campus," Holtz said. "Those type of distractions, we talk about it all the time as a team, you've got to leave those right here at the gate." Link...

SMU to sellout stadium for season opener: "We will sell out this first game," Jones said in a press conference earlier this month. "I'm really excited for our kids to come through that tunnel and see it sold out. It's going to be a really powerful thing." The largest crowd to enter Ford Stadium totaled 34,689 in 2004. However, the home field advantage worked more for the Red Raiders, defeating the Mustangs 27-13. "We're going to beat that number for this upcoming home opener," said SMU alum Bob Beaudine. "When you're around someone like coach Jones and Steve Orsini, SMU Director of Athletics, the whole culture totally changes." "Sellout 2009" consists of a team of 18 businessmen from the Dallas area, including Beaudine, Paul Loyd, Carl Sewell and former Dallas Cowboy Roger Staubach, all whom have agreed to sell 1,000 tickets each at $10 a pop. Do the math, and SMU racks up $10,000 and fills 18,000 seats. Tickets that are not sold will be distributed to non-profit organizations and youth programs. None of the tickets given to these organizations will be free. Link...
