20-9 Wilson wins

Not only is he a better recruiter than Hop, he shows in our house that while lousy, he's not as lousy as Hop & Co.

RGs legacy.  So much so that they named it for him which makes me want to puke.  There's a bunch of damn empty seats up there too and in the East Club.  The only reason it's 3/4 full in the club areas is because of all the corporate buys and the liquor.

I want to know who told that stupid cunt to hire EJ.  People try to pin that shit on Hammond but I know a QB wouldn't do that stupid shit.  Besides, all those MFers were completely under the spell of Gianinni so we know he had a major influence.  I wish someone had the balls enough to step up and say, "I was wrong, I really thought that imposter could do the job".

#4 Re: Southern Miss » Goodbye Nick Suss. » 2018-10-18 19:50:55

He wasn't here long enough for me to know if his name is pronounced Suss like Fuss or Suss like Puss! 

Every time I see his name it reminds me of some late 70s/early 80s terminology...Snuss was a regularly used word in my neighborhood full of boys.  Snuss in place of pussy for Jr High kids was cool and we thought we were slick.  Ahh, the good old days.  About the same time as The Perfect 10 was doing his thing.

Maybe we should just have one fuckin helmet and two uniforms.  We could pay a better coach with the change.

#6 Re: Southern Miss » Bower or LFed.... » 2018-10-17 20:30:36

Monken was fine but he was not humored by stupid reporters asking dumb questions.  He always seemed irritated when interviewed.  I liked his quirkiness.

And NGB - who said I hated Dawson?  I met the guy and he was cool as fuck!  I'd love to drink more beer with him but he ain't got it right now.  Maybe he will one day but I think he's been promoted too fast for whatever reason (Peter Principle at work).  As for the Kentucky game, I think he spent most of a year scheming how to beat a Defense he played every day in practice.  And he beat them with a really good quarterback, something he didn't have at Kentucky.  If Nick is not our QB that day, we lose 100%.   So to recant my prior statement: Nick gets 91% credit, Dawson gets 4% and the home crowd gets the other 5%!

Kwadra took his redshirt year two years ago when he couldn't make grades.  May God have mercy on him and the repose of the soul of his mother.  He's had quite a raw deal in the fall of 2018 from life in general.  Praying that he comes out of all this a much stronger young man.

#8 Re: Southern Miss » Bower or LFed.... » 2018-10-16 22:28:48

Back to the question of the OP:
I liked Bower well enough and then one day I realized he couldn't take us where I wanted us to go.
I loved the energy and enthusiasm of Fedora but on more than one occasion, I would force myself to listen to the call-in radio show just so I could get thru and ask him about all this "rah rah rah ATTACK" BS he was selling us with a non-attack D under his pal as DC.  He said we would ATTACK in all three phases of the game!  What a crock of shit.  I'll give him credit, he made the change and we did ATTACK in all 3 phases from that point on...until he chose the vacation instead of allowing us regular people to drive to Dallas for an opportunity to beat down Penn State (a fucking game that would have MATTERED had we won)!! For that, Larry is a pussy and karma is kicking his ass now because of it!!

Monken...damn, what an asshole of a personality.  And a slow & steady winner.  Why he chose to get out of the game he was certain to master is something that will have an effect on USM for a while.  I don't blame him for his decision because he was at a huge disadvantage at a G5 school with no money but another year or two of him and we would have piled up wins that MATTERED!

Hop & Co couldn't fuck up Nick beating Kentucky.  I give Nick all the credit for that win and playing fairly well against Moo as well.  Anything good that happened with Nick and giving any of the coaches any credit is about the same as saying Hallman was a good coach.  All one has to do is look what happened when Nick went down.  Hop & Co had nothing.  He graduated and we still have nothing. 

I guess I'll choose Monk from that group even tho the MF left at the worst possible moment thus making our lame ass AD think he needed to make a super fast hire for recruiting purposes.

#9 Re: Southern Miss » Bower or LFed.... » 2018-10-16 22:13:46

Let me clarify why Son of Dixie used "the only stat that mattered".  It's not so much when, why, where, or how any of it happened but that other people noticed it as well as our own fans.  Sure we had folks showing up to games but we weren't selling the place out either and it's because Bower was not winning the so called big games.  SoD noticed a very easy and simple to predict pattern among our fair-weather fans...if we win the early season game, the stadium is packed until we lose and then it starts dwindling down, especially when mediocrity is on display.  Open at Bama and lose, the place will be less than half-full for the beatdown against SELA.

And its true whether we like it or not...we only beat the shitty $ec teams during his long "legendary" tenure.  SoD didn't stop tracking "the only stat that matters" when JB left either.  He tracked it until he succumbed to Golden Eagle apathy upon the debacles of Martha/RG/Fedora choosing Hawaii/EJ/no-balls-Bennett/Hammond short contract/etc.

#10 Re: Southern Miss » UNT USM Game Thread » 2018-10-14 22:02:34

So we only know how to recruit fast kids. And if you think about it, they were all HS qbs with no true RB or WR skills.

#11 Re: Southern Miss » UNT USM Game Thread » 2018-10-13 23:14:51

Basically, what you've just described is a "loser" mentality that has permeated our existence.  And if you think about it, we've bullshit ourselves into believing we are something special from the Reggie days, the Brett days, beating OP and Moo regularly back when they both sucked shit, and some Bower wins over $ec teams with losing records. 

Mark May's quote was correct but the timing of it was wrong.  Just who the fuck do we think we are?  It doesn't matter, there's no one at the games any more and there's not even any spirit on campus for gamedays much less during the week. 

Actively searching for new hobby....

You have to wonder just how much gets in.  My guess is that the over whelming majority does.

#15 Re: Southern Miss » Griggs Suspended » 2018-10-10 22:13:00

Bennett is a fucking idiot plain and simple.  He presided over a violation of Griggs' rights in a pretty gross manner.  Erring on the side of caution is one thing but to violate basic constitutional rights regarding due process is a huge fucking problem.  Then again, he chose to act just like the Democrats on Capitol Hill.  This mother fucker can't leave USM fast enough for me.

He should have kept the balls he accidentally grew, told them to fuck off and chastised them for threatening to remove his name simply because he exercised his right to free speech.  He's a pussy just like the admin and the leftists running the place.  They all deserve one another.

Hard to argue with that but we all know if that happens, the loss will come to the worst team remaining.

But we have a coach that can recruit good enough to ‘maybe’ beat State next year. That is the most we can hope for in the current landscape.

If this fucker can get Louis Smith to stay committed and get the Wright kid to sign as well, we will have one hell of an interior line.  Hop just needs to find some Tackles and a line coach and all is well!

I'd rather go to the Bahamas for Christmas than play in Frisco City at a HS stadium that obviously kicks back cash to Judy.   Meaning, I'll buy tickets and go to the Bahamas but I'm not going to Frisco.
