Thoughts on people getting USM flags on TV at non-USM games

It was kind of neat when this happened in 2012 at the Sugar Bowl.

When it happened last night at a Tulane game, I was a little confused. What message does that send?

"Hey, we're hardly ever on TV anymore, but we exist?"

"There are a lot more USM fans in New Orleans than Tulane fans?"

"USM should be in the same conference as these teams?"

I'm not objecting to the idea... just wondering what it's about.

Re: Thoughts on people getting USM flags on TV at non-USM games

My take.....perhaps someone is trying to take a page out of Ol’ Crimson perhaps. Wouldn’t be a bad idea if we had one consistent flag that traveled SEC nationally televised games as a reminder of who we were and still could be again one day.

Throwing it up at Tulane doesn’t move the needle in any direction.....

It's a Nazi idiot from the EP Fb board.

Re: Thoughts on people getting USM flags on TV at non-USM games

Those are all good answers. I agree it would be fun to whip out a USM flag in a crowd- I've seen them at Jazz Fest, for example.

Also, WWII was such an interesting time in our history.

I guess what I'm really wondering about is the reaction of people in the EaglePost Facebook group. There seems to be this perception that the guy with the flag somehow skunked... someone? The whole think reeks of burnt taters.

Regarding EP, I know “that guy” was trying really, really hard for people to see that flag thingy on Saturday. Even did a post in ALL CAPS after his first two posts went without comments.

I don’t know who he is but most of his comments are generally generic and lack any insight........


Kinda like mine.......
