UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas -- David Hill showed up early to Saturday's SMU game, proudly wearing his throwback No. 19 Eric Dickerson jersey.
"Those were the teams I remember coming and watching," said Hill, a 50-year-old Plano resident and software engineer who graduated in 1980. "I haven't been to homecoming since I got out of school here. I'll admit that I'm a fair-weather fan, but I think the program might be coming around, so I wanted to see it.
