I know the money was great at UNC but I was surprised that he didn't get a better gig when he left here.  It was a good move for the money but crap for his career.   He probably doesn't need the money but you have to think that large ego is hating life right now.  I wonder how many G5 jobs he went after this year and if his agent actually reached out to USM after the shit he took on us when he left.  I really liked the dude until that day.

Damn, that's a lot of money to pay a guy that's with his recent track record.  Didn't perform at Arky, sat out for a year or two.  Just damn!

So when Abraham says this will prepare him for the "next level", is he talking about the Arena league or what??

We scored 35+ more points in a matter of a few days of coaching/practicing.  I'm looking forward to the 100 point production in the next game!  hmm

Well I kind of look at it this way. Dr. Bennett is the boss. Sometimes you go along to get along. I am hoping Dr. Bennett realizes the benefit of a strong athletic program to compliment academics.

The big question I have on Dr. Bennett is what has he done to move the University forward  (Covid 2020 does not count)? What I mean is money for programs, adding programs and such. We are all pretty much aware of the social items such as flag removal, BLM marching, VP for diversity hiring, and striking down the Coach Briles hire. I did read student enrollment was up but to me a hundred or so new bodies is kind so so. Maybe he has done a ton outside of the social agenda. I just don't know.

Ace...

His attempted destruction of the Dixie Darlings was extreme, petty, troubling, and defines for me where he is, what he is and the lengths he would go if it were not for a few "influential" alumni yanking his leash and achieving a delay.

And next will be the purge of names.

Which ones?  Roberts, McCain, etc.  Are there more?  I'm hoping all that shit was just to cause strife prior to the election but I also realize how free societies are dismantled and this is straight from the playbook.  If they start erasing names because of the past transgressions, there is no stopping point.  I can think of a couple bible quotes that would make that line of thinking moot but we are also talking about a group of folks led by evil, Godless people. 

Bennett is funny...he's not attempted to make us hire minorities in key positions (merely for the sake of numbers) just yet but he's sneaking around the back door trying to get some smaller (in his eyes) victories.  We lost a lot of rank & file people when he was forced down our throats and many will never come back.  But if I had to give the guy a grade for the state of the school under his watch and his hires, it would be an F+.  I throw in the "+" simply due to our attaining the high status for being a research institution.  Not that that matters as we've not seen one phuckin penny in the coffers from that stuff.

"Sneaking around the back door" makes me think of coining a new nickname for him....we should call him Rimmer!

I really didn’t think he was leaving Ark St so maybe he was actually in the running for USM. The man did what he could in Jonesboro. Would imagine everywhere he turns he is reminded of his wife who passed. Change can probably help the man heal. Wish him the best at Utah St.

I was told last night at the game by an insider that he was very much in play but that we simply couldn't pay the $800K buyout.  There is a guy on GEP that "knows some folks" that swears it was a done deal with Blake the week before Hall was hired...he still maintains that position today.  My source from last night thinks we are in a much better place with Hall with the situation we currently have.

After watching the game last night in person (not sure what it looked like on TV), we do not have some huge void of talent that many say we do.  A good coach can fix our problems quickly!  With that said, someone close to Hall told me yesterday that a Head Coach "from the Coast" told Hall to his face that he was walking into a "shit show" where the "inmates ran the asylum".  This refers directly to the daddy ball that was going on with the Abrahams and Cloptons and it's terrible effects on the team.

#7 Re: Southern Miss » Does Wilbur take full control of team this week? » 2020-12-07 06:39:47

Wilbur... lol  lol  lol That fits the ole boy well.

Everyone seems to be thinking that he will be finalizing the hiring of his new staff and recruiting this week, then taking an observation role all week before giving the NoHop boys their walking papers Thursday night after the game.

#8 Re: Southern Miss » Missed the presser » 2020-12-04 08:21:46

He shoulda done the Carey game because if we play that tentative in conference, not gonna win the big ones (saying that not having a clue if you can call any of our games big).  I was just happy we didn't continue the losing trend to WC!

#9 Re: Southern Miss » It took 3 months.... » 2020-12-04 08:17:07

Hall was somewhere around 3 or 4 on my wish list after Freeze was removed.  The only plus I could think of is the fact that he has pulled kids to Tulame for the past 2 years and his supposed connections in MS.  Now that he's here, I've read some things that make him sound like he's constantly studying/improving his O ideas.  That's better than reading he was a lunk of shit so there's that. I'm really interested to see what kind of staff he assembles and how they perform under the gun in basically a week's time to pull a recruiting class.  I was really worried that JM would hire someone like Roberts or even worse so I've accepted this move for now.  A shit ton better than what we had! 

Dude better start snatching kids out of his ass because otherwise, we got nothing going on for early signing period.  Nothing.

#10 Re: Southern Miss » So how is your other team doing this year? » 2020-12-04 08:05:11

After Zeta hit all the harbors were closed for weeks, nowhere to launch.  It was hot, flat, and dry but we couldn't go anywhere.  Where did you get into specs?

#11 Re: Southern Miss » So how is your other team doing this year? » 2020-11-30 23:59:58

With all the goofy shit going on with 2020, I haven't had time to have another team so I've just been wallowing in the misery since it got too chilly to run the boat shirtless to Horn Island every weekend to look at puss and drink beer!

Most on this forum will disapprove but there is a possible solution for a head coach to stabilize the program and turn things around. The head coach would require a couple of pretty good coordinators and a recruiting budget to get USM out of this Jr. College mess that seems to be on going. This coach does not like the JC route at all. He knows the program and its problems. He will stay a few years and hopefully groom a replacement coach that could at least give USM roughly seven or eight years of stability. He is currently building a house in Sumrall. I have no idea if any of the large boosters will support it. I doubt anyone on the Nut Lines will either. I know the administration most likely does not which is interesting because the AD said the program needed someone like this guy. It helped at Kansas State and seems to be working an UNC by hiring a previous old fogey coach. Without mentioning his name, you know who I mean. He will take the job.  Yes, I have spoken with him about it.

Ace...

Collins is a little old no?  LOL

#13 Re: Southern Miss » Early next week? » 2020-11-21 22:31:18

What is most pathetic about all this is that JM should have fired Hopson at the end of last year, hired a good coach and moved on.  I am fairly certain that we would not have had all the defections we had, especially right before season started.  He fucked up pretty badly in my opinion and then this year's absolute debacle has occurred.  And every week it seems to get worse between injuries, defections, and losses. 

This better be a great hire or JM will go down as yet another loser in a now growing line of useless ADs hired by Bennett!

#14 Re: Southern Miss » Early next week? » 2020-11-21 22:24:58

I wasn't talking about someone else on our staff but regardless, your reply makes sense iffin you're referring to the guy that just had another cool million offered to him by his current employer or the one making good money as an OC with peach drink in hand.

#15 Re: Southern Miss » UTSA @ USM 2020 football game thread » 2020-11-21 22:21:26

The way Tate scampered off with his throwing arm dangling, I'd have to say it was a dislocated shoulder.  His last game action prior to this saw a last play TD cheap shot net him a dislocated jaw/concussion.  He's one tough dude but no one should have to endure the amount of shit this kid has been fed since arriving at USM.  Anyway, I watched him on the bench until the game ended and the docs/trainers seemed to be doing the arm movements that you do when someone has the arm pop out.  You could see that he was in pain.  If this is the case, I can't imagine he'll be back any time before Spring at best.  Probably gonna have to finish the year with Lowe and some no-name guys.

Hearing rumblings of an announcement early next week... Anybody else? Also heard an offer was made within a week of JH leaving and it was rejected.

Who the hell could we have offered that was available and worth a shit that would reject us?  Unless we offered someone the Interim job as a tryout for peanuts.  It doesn't appear that anyone on our staff wanted the job outside of Scotty and he used it to GTFO of town in quick fashion.  It sounded like we basically shoved the job on Billings.

Early next week is fine by me as long as it isn't a freakin turd!

What's the deal with Clopton?

I've long suspected him to be overrated, but I didn't mention it since everyone else acted like he was the reincarnation of Mike Webster or something.

Whatever the deal WAS with him, it matters not any longer.  He is apparently done for the year with a rotator cuff injury!

Satire at its finest... I do respect your commitment to that drizzle tho!

That board is the least of my issues...I've been supporting the jackoffs for too long in the form of donations and tickets for multiple sports.  Between my hunting camp and new boat, I've got much better ways to flush $$$ down the shitter!

If only Hopson knew how to speak the way this guy does.  He's not Larry Fedora but at the same time, he's not the aww shucks brand of boredom we were subjected to for 4+ years.  I actually watched the entire presser because of his honesty.

Who are these folks asking the questions. I think one is Magee. I do not know any of the others.

Ace...

Yes, one is Magee.  One of them is Glyn Dyar from GEP, he's the big guy.
