We are wasting Keon’s time by having him take reps as qb. He should be getting reps at another position on offense right now. Why can’t we recognize this and make the most of every player on this roster......

It's really a mystery. He's not going to play QB at the next level. Whether he could play something else is an open question. Might as well encourage him to explore that.

Howard had Dawson, Tez, TRod, Quez, etc.  Jack had to split time with Marcelo and had the new guys at WR but had Payne and Anderson at RB.  Jack/Marcelo did have Jayshawn who right now has the best hands on the field.

I think playing Keon with the first unit isn't smart. I guess in a way he's earned it, and is sort of the incumbent. But everyone's seen enough of Keon to know what he can do. Give someone else a shot.

Keating follows with a solo home run. 6-0.

Reynolds makes it 1-0. Sandlin looking good.

Good first inning for Sandlin.

Howard was indeed the best quarterback on the field, leading the Gold offense on three scoring drives in the first half — two field goals and one touchdown.

Howard had a touchdown toss wiped off his stat line when Quez Watkins dropped a pass in the end zone in the first half. The junior from Laurel finished 11-of-15 for 132 yards passing and ran six times for 53 yards.

Howard did make one mistake when he threw a ball into traffic on an attempt to connect with Watkins, but the ball fell to the ground as a harmless interception.

Boyd makes it 9-1. Eagles piling it on.

#13 Re: Southern Miss » MTSU @ USM baseball, game 2 » Yesterday 14:41:48

Eagles take it to 5-1, MTSU looking to the bullpen. Irby has 4 batted in, Montenegro 1.

#14 Re: Southern Miss » MTSU @ USM baseball, game 2 » Yesterday 14:22:47

MTSU narrows the lead to 2-1 on a sac fly.

#15 Re: Southern Miss » MTSU @ USM baseball, game 2 » Yesterday 14:14:01

Irby drives in Keating to make it 1-0 USM.

IKeon continues to be the “highlight” of today’s game.

Sure hope he's playing safety.

At least we all have a free place to urinate during Mardi Gras next year. There's a Starbucks on St. Charles Ave. right where I usually watch the Uptown parades.

Our RPI jumped 14 spots last night. We are now at #41......

Teams like Rice last season will earn automatic bids in conferences that have at-large contenders and will shrink a thin bubble.
There will always be disappointed teams after selections are made. There will be nothing the selection committee can do to reverse the missed opportunities against USA, Ole Miss and Ohio State this season.
Several really talented squads will miss out on the chance to play in a regional just like last season. We have to sweep today and finish 14-3 the rest of the way to have a legit shot for an at large if we don’t win in Biloxi. We wouldn’t be the first top 25 team to not make the dance if we can’t win our conference tournament.

That's interesting. I have anticipated the ranking and RPI getting closer together (whether in a bad way or a good way) all season. That mostly has not happened, though.

I think USM has a good chance of winning the conference tournament, but if they don't, it will be a difficult decision for the people setting the NCAA tournament field.
