Byron Hunt Talks SMU Football and Death Penalty
This past Thursday, Levack and Goz broadcasted live from New York Giants training camp in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Former New York Giant and Super Bowl champion Byron Hunt joined the show and spoke about his time playing college football at SMU from 1977-1980. Starting from the late 1970s to the middle of 1980s, the SMU football program was paying players violating NCAA regulations for close to a decade. According to the NCAA's investigation, Hunt was a part of the program during the time in which the violations were committed. Hunt said that not only did he not accept any money from coaches, or football employees but that he did not even hear of any of his former employees taking money. Hunt was also critical of the casting and interviews of ESPN's 30 for 30 Pony Excess. The Pony Excess documented the football's death penalty handed down by the NCAA.
