He's been our recruiting coordinator for the past 3+ years.  He has worked at Bama, Miami, Tennessee, and more prior to here.  He looks to have washed out prior to Hop hiring him.  I think there's something there with his claims but he's so Italian and Yankee at that, that he comes off badly.  All he has to do is dress well, like he usually does, and stop making vids in his car and folks would find him more believable.

They learned a lesson from this.. You get what you pay for....the money will be of now,  it appears an assistant will be the interim...more to come....

Houston alum is stepping up. As is some Mississippi. Jeremy has done a stellar job developing a plan that they got behind...

Walden was the emotional choice for interim but is a long shot.

New head will be OC from either Tulane or Memphis. Timing is up in the air for new HC to be on seat, but want ASAP.

I hope you're right, all the way around!

What's funny about that shitty little article is that Sen Joel Carter was not complaining about Tater.  He was instrumental in contacting him to let him know that a couple of pussy mayors on the Coast were going rogue along with Sheriff Peterson and all 5 police chiefs (in Harrison County) about a mandatory curfew at least 3-4 weeks before Reeves did it.  Those idiot L/E guys don't understand it is their job to uphold the law, not make it.  Scary shit right there!

Here you go of my favs that Sammy Hagar was involved in.  I loved Montrose and prefer Sammy's work with Montrose to any other he's done with other groups.  I also like Sammy's solo stuff better as well.

Bennett needs to fucking go!  Right now.  And several others do as well.  We are a failed shit show and stupid shit keeps occurring under his nose.  Nothing is improved.  The worst part is that I have zero faith that a replacement would be worth a fuck either since all those on the college board are apparently a bunch of suck-asses. 

I think I'm gonna write some checks this week to some politicians and immediately call in my requests!

How's Bennett gonna dodge this?

Sheeeyut, Bennett is nowhere near that writer's radar!  If she's gonna mention Favre, McClain, Bryant, and Coll in the same breath as Nancy New, nothing else she says has any credibility as far as I'm concerned.  If you're going to be an "investigative reporter" then hammer everyone equally.  Until I see solid actual proof that Favre solicited funds in a fraudulent manner, any negative mention of him has zero validity to me.  The girl is trying to sensationalize the story of some crooks in a crooked state to make Favre and USM look bad.  Hell, everyone knows you get appointed to the Foundation Board by donating a pile of money.  The Foundation is too damn broke to even pay for scholarships, much less investigate the donated funds.  However, I'm not naive enough to think that $5mm in funds from a non-profit didn't get the attention of the university president. 

The real question is why wasn't Bennett's name in the first 2 or 3 sentences of this article rather than slandering Brett?  Again, there was no mention of RB...and we all know why.

There were 564 recruits that didn't like the "aw shucks" routine last year.  Know what I'm sayin?  But you "have to give credit to the other teams recruiting the kids...they were very prepared and had a good plan...I have faith that my men will get it done with preparation".

Several are carrying forward from last year.  That wouldn't be so bad except this staff has the ability to sign guys they never play and then they end up transferring out.  That translates to crappy talent evaluations.

#12 Re: Southern Miss » Super Bowl - who ya got » 2020-02-03 09:42:58

I hunt in the Southeast Zone which means deer season is open until 2/15.  With that said, by the second week of January, if any rut activity has occurred, you don't see shit.  I've got to do some traveling for business the final week of season which means I was in my shooting house all weekend.  I didn't see deer, no Super Bowl!   I hunt with Son of Dixie (a fallen-away USM fan and message board reality pumper).  Honestly, we figured the QB would get hurt and Mullens would step in to be the hero of the day since we weren't watching.  Neither of us cared who did what but damn glad two of our guys were there getting the $$$.

If one of us did it, we are guilty.  Some "cultures" are OK with that shit.  In the long run, he appeared to have become a good guy.  I don't think he was ever Big Ben (sorry fuck rapist) but I'm sure he had a lot of pussy thrown on him from high school on.  I never researched the rape accusal but I wouldn't be surprised at all if she offered the ass and then went for the cash.  I hope that pussy was as fat as that check he had to write!

I've never been one to pay any attention to post counts of anyone much less my own but was looking at the members list here this evening and saw my own name with 999 next to it.  I decided to recognize this post and reflect a bit.

I really thought since the inception of this site 2 or 3 years ago, I had posted 400 or so times maybe.  I see that it's 1000 now and it made me think of what time period I harbored enough excitement to give a shit about discussing USM sports.  I say that because for the better part of 6 months after the dismal 2018 football season, I really didn't visit here.  I have a membership at the 24/7 site that I've had since that site consisted of about 8 regular posters but during that same period last year, I mostly lurked there.

The NFL abandoned me about 6 years ago now and has proven time and again that it is a rigged pile of shit.  NASCAR has sucked dick for at least 10 years now.  Pro baseball is meh...I fall asleep trying to watch.  NBA has been a ME sport for 4 decades now.  So I've really focused the last 18 years on USM football mostly and a few games of hoops or diamond sprinkled in.  But my support financially over the past 15 has grown every year.  I said at one point after last season that I would yield to the "rational" folks that said they are giving Hopson the benefit of the doubt until after his 4th full season.  I did the same and kept "writing the checks".  At this point, I'm beginning to feel like a damn fool for continuing to support the train wreck that has become USM sports, football and basketball in particular. 

President Bennett is a fucking moron on the scale with AKL, Fleming, and Saunders when it comes to understanding leadership in his hires.  Bennett has now hired 3 ADs and this latest one is beginning to make me think he ain't got it either.  Most presidents hire 1 AD if they are lucky but this guy has lacked vision in every instance.  It's like he finds a guy dumb enough to take the job and says,
"awesome, here's $400K a year on a max length contract....go get 'em big guy"!  BDR predicted and coined the SUNWACUSA moniker probably 8-10 years ago on Eagle Post and many called him out for it.  After a couple years, more people began to recognize it.  A few more years and getting passed by one more time by the AAC, he was dead-on in his prediction.  If a goofy ass Ole Miss grad that spent some of his workdays rowing a boat in a shit pond (and we thank you for your service to the school sir) could see what was coming, why the hell couldn't our past/current administrations even remotely catch a glimpse of what was to come for USM??

At this point in time, I will continue only because I'm not sure about Hop's contract and realize the university is too fuckin poor to pay 1 million bucks (or even 500K) to fire a guy and then replace him while providing the necessary funds to assemble a better staff.  As a business owner, I say cut your losses, limit further destruction, and get immediately on track to raging success.  That is obviously not a prevailing thought with any of the warm bodies we have making decisions at USM.   What is crazy is that at this point next year, depending upon who is named OC or DC this year, we may well win 8 games.  But that's not anywhere near my expectations.  I expected Hop to win the conference in year 4 or move on.  Back to winning 8 games...Bower 2.0 will probably return to USM with complete mediocrity (except Bower would at least win the league from time to time) and Hop will retire here in 10 years.  Even if we win 8, I am gone.  Year 5 = exponential success.  No exceptions.  The only way me and my money stay is if the whole thing is scrapped and we make a good hire.  Bad hire and I'm gone.

So I guess I'm saying that I'm gone from here too ahead of time.  I'll stop the cash flow first and delete all message board links the next day.  I know a few who have done it already and I'm left to realize that's where everyone that used to be so energized about discussing USM sports has peace and happiness somewhere else!  I really hope I'm here next year at this time but my faith is down below 1% in the administration.

The TTToppers are loud everywhere they go but I seriously don't think many of them actually donate or support the programs.  I know there are lurkers because over the past year, I've been reduced to a lurker at best due to being so damn busy all the time.  The state of nearly everything at USM right now isn't much to write home about and doesn't seem to be getting better any time soon.

USM fans have been beaten down with the lack of empathy stick and I don't see anything other than a fluke undefeated season that can resurrect support at this point.

#20 Re: Southern Miss » Kobe » 2020-01-29 22:01:48

So I've got a frequent customer in my store yesterday that just happens to be a retired WO4 'Nam helo pilot among other things.  I know how pilots are about saying anything bad about another pilot but he unequivocally stated, "that dumbass knew he shouldn't have flown into a fog bank but he let that $$$ make him think he could do it".  He went on to say, "he knew he was a dead man to even try that shit".  Of course we all heard that LAPD (or sheriff's office) grounded their two choppers that morning because of the fog.  He also said, "that idiot should have given it more power and gone up, not attempt a lose your lift in a turn". 

I guess we'll have to see what the Black Box data shows.
