In 2010 ESPN and Thaddeus Matula released "The Pony Excess," which took viewers inside the pay-for-play scandal that led to SMU football becoming the only school in NCAA history to receive what's referred to as "The Death Penalty." We talk to Thaddeus about how he tracked down the various players, media members, and boosters to break down how things came crashing down in Dallas during the late-80's, and why it was so important to him personally to make this documentary.
