Others have spoken to the talent of Davis throughout his time at SMU.
@BruceFeldmanCFB Great athlete, program on the rise too.

Really bad news for SMU here, as Matt Davis is down and hurt, possibly a twisted knee. He’s been a game-changer for Mustangs.

Others, however, have found promise in the new first year quarterback, Ben Hicks, who has filled Davis’ void since his injury.

This Hicks kid isn’t a bad QB for SMU. Just some poor throws in the red zone. Thank goodness Davis isn’t playing.

What are you thoughts on the future of the Mustang football team without Davis leading the team on the field?
