Ace,

Been using Hulu Live for a year now. $40 gets you all you need. Switched from Directv to Hulu and I saved $1,000 a year.

I will look at it. What I don't care for is my Roku seems to drop back to start often. Probably old. I am not crazy about the slowness and the directory of Sling. It will be an adjustment. I know from working at AT&T this is the way that providers want to go because of the portable devices. Hopefully there are many improvements. I miss Direct TV big time but not triple the payment.

Hulu Live TV has CBSSN, I think, and you can watch that on Roku if you subscribe.

Looking forward to seeing the basketball team on CBSSN later today.

Thanks.

I see it on all of them except Sling. Trying out Sling for the month.

After retiring from AT&T my employee discount turned to garbage so dropped DirectTv.

On Roku and trying out Sling Tv. They don’t carry CBS SN. I see Roku has CBS but not seeing CBS SN. Anyone know if I can grab it somewhere?

He is on campus and that is the easy way to hire a new one. I know zero about him other than he is from Mississippi.

Make no mistake. Jaden Johnson is the next Kyler Murray. If you remember Johnny Manziels first game against Bama expect that.....except Jaden doesn’t lose. We will beat State by 17 and Troy by 20. Expect to be top 10 by October 1. 

No way we don’t get a CFB spot with two SEC wins on the road including mighty Bama........

I would rather take the dead end path. You still have an option to turn around. The rat vomit just dries up and blows away.

Well NG.... She's going to FSU most likely.

USM's lack of effort really surprises and like said above.. I'm afraid it's more universal than just athletics.

When it came time to go to school and choose ballet over lush dancing, My daughter went to Birmingham-Southern. Don't feel bad. It's her choice.

I remember going to USM. I saw Don Tigieser there with his daughter. I believe she ended up at UNT. Don died a few years ago.

I looked at the CUSA board. I don't think I have seen such a love fest of USM "fans" loving the opponents of this conference. It reminds me of years ago when some poster named "Sleepless in Hattiesburg hung out on the old ECU board praising their existence.

Those bastards did not stick up for USM when the AAC discussions were going on but USM stuck up for them for CUSA. Man screw ECU.

I don’t watch CUSA football unless USM is on. I did enjoy the two games in Hattiesburg. I do watch AAC ball, ACC and SEC ball. I Have had enough Sunbelt. Our fans want a regional conference. We are not in the AAC because G wanted a regional conference. Just damn.

Magee is slightly more optimistic now that the Cure Bowl will feature an AAC team.

Nah, I donate and they don't give two shits what I think.  I had lunch with Gilbert and he was a condescending prick, more in how he looked at me than in what he said.  Honestly, he doesn't have much to say. I believe he is clueless and that's not just some "blue-collar" fan mentality.  Maybe they pay attention to the COC folks, I dunno.  I've spent a little time looking at some of the COC members to see how many are self-made and how many are trust fund babies.  It looks like we have too many trust-funders and those that are awarded a position on the Athletic Board of Directors due to corporate gifts (eg "my company gives $10K per year and they've chosen me for this position because I'm a non-boat rocking stooge). And many of the self-mades appear to be involved so they can pound their chests at the country club. 

I really think at this point that USM as a whole, not just our dumpster-fire athletic programs, are worse off than many understand.  We've been on cruise control To The Bottom for 3 decades.  I can't imagine it getting worse but I'm sure it will.  Not unlike the federal government being full of corrupt deep state shills, but we have no savior anywhere in sight in Mississippi to fight the Establishment.  Phil Bryant should go hide in shame for what has occurred at his alma mater.

I know a couple of “self mades” that have commented they don’t get a look. They have been in since the beginning so have already gr the $100K mark. Not sure if they renewed. One used to let USM folks use a property he had but has since stopped.

My angst over Hopson and his salary really doesn't have all that much to do with what other schools in "Conference" USA are paying. What really disappoints me is the way whatever ambition USM ever had has just evaporated since 2011.

Conference realignment just sucked the life out of USM. You're looking at a bunch of people who were told loudly and in no uncertain terms that they weren't good enough. When that happens, you can get mad and double down on becoming who you want to be, or you can get sad and spend the next seven years barely going through the motions. USM- as an institution and as a fandom- chose the second path, and it really pisses me off.

I think the football team will be relatively good over the next 2-3 years. But expect any good season to be marred by a head-scratching loss or two, because USM has that disease in its blood, and Jay Hopson is the last person on Earth who'll ever cure it. Instead, he'll get to 9 or 10 wins, maybe, and it will buy him another 5 or 10 years of quiet mediocrity.

Always wanted to go to ECU. Seems like an interesting, out-of-the-way little corner of the country. I guess that pirate ship has sailed, though.

I went many times. I saw only one loss if I recall. I was at the game USM won which caused a rule change and many lopsided and close ones. My favorite was a game oui lost. A female USM fan was sitting down from me drinking. USM and ECU  were down. Their stadium looked like an empty ship. Our fan was drinking and not hiding it at all. A man wearing a Shriners Fez came up to her and flashed a Security badge. She needed to dispose of the alcohol as it was not allowed. She then said, “our team is so bad, we have to drink to watch them.” He stared at her when she said, “I cannot take anyone seriously wearing a fez.” He just walked away.
