Looking like a potential sweep. 7-3 Eagles in game 3.

Game 2 was an error-free effort for USM.

That first Rush album was recorded with a different drummer and it has a unique sound... the more laid-back rhythm parts give it almost a "Pink Floyd featuring Geddy Lee" vibe.

I don't buy the Kennedy-vs.-Ladner dichotomy. Seems like they set up someone they knew wasn't coming so that when they hired Ladner people could say "oh, well that other guy wasn't a realistic possibility anyway."

When this coaching search started, I sat down with an NCAA tournament bracket and identified the guy at Prairie View as a good candidate. I do not think this philosophy was employed in the search as it actually happened. It was all a show.

Each time we have one of these meetings, it resembles the town hall meeting from Blazing Saddles more and more. This is no longer a serious athletic department, it's a "good old boys' club."

Looks like the guy hired at Troy had better credentials.

I suspect that this is all about Jeremy caving in to some people who really don't need to have that kind of influence. He knows exactly what Ladner's resume looks like and he hired him anyway.

#5 Re: Southern Miss » So Ladner... » 2019-04-17 22:18:51

There was apparently a groundswell of support for Ladner from a bunch of USM insiders who know him personally. We've seen that in the past, and it doesn't always turn out well.

The 1987 team considered the prospect of Weatherspoon getting the job, and the prospect of Ladner getting the job, and they spoke up en masse for Ladner. Not sure what to make of that. They like him, but plenty of likeable guys end up as busts.

That said, I really hope Jay succeeds.

Yeah, I've got a small deposit I'd like to leave for them.

I knew she looked familiar. Couldn't quite place it until I read this, though.

Reminds of the woman I dated who kind of vaguely reminded of someone. About 3 years after we split up, I realized she was a female Vladimir Putin.

Why, Aunt Bea's going play the Wicked Witch of the West, Sheriff Taylor's going the be the Wizard, and Juanita Beasley's all set to portray Dorothy! Gomer's putting together the sets, and Otis has even volunteered to do the lighting... I reckon it'll be one of the year's top 2 or 3 community theater productions in the whole darned county!

I was thinking of people who make it so that you can't see who their friends are. Seems very shady to me.

I feel a little creepy looking at someone's profile.

Usually if I do it it's someone who got busted for some hilarious crime.

Not really understanding all the topper support for JL.

Its honestly one of the biggest problems with our lack of success. I will give our new AD a pass because he earned it at Troy with the success they have experienced under his watch but we tend to go safe which rarely translates into success in todays competitive landscape.....meaning that even a Bower wouldn't be as successful in todays environment.

You have Debbie Bower campaigning on FB for Ladner. You have the 87 NIT team writing a letter for supporting him as the next hire. I don't see Jeremy hiring him if he is able to get proven coaches that are available from bigger programs to answer the phone. He wants immediate success and you don't get that by hiring a .500 coach from Hammond......

After many years of this shit, I think I get it. There are a large number of fans and employees of USM athletics whose goal isn't so much for this endeavor to succeed, it's for it to remain a comfortable and familiar place for them personally. These are the people who jump for joy when some hick gets the team into the NIT, but can't be bothered to support a guy like Larry Eustachy. They get downright angry at the first sign of any real ambition.

Take the AAC for example. These folks never wanted in because then someone might photograph one of them next to a UConn or Temple fan / employee, and we'd look like the bumpkins in the room. Better to keep getting photographed next to the other hayseeds from Ruston and Birmingham than to get all uppity. Then they lie to themselves and say that the mean old P5 is keeping USM down.

Some of these people even long for the inclusion of yokels from backwaters that are more distant still than Ruston. Get some Lafayette and Monroe folks in the picture and they'll really be BMOC.

Frickin' nauseates me. It's a philosophy of unacknowledged self-disdain.

Griggs, huh? Sad to see that the fires of your love for "Datoo" have cooled to but dusky embers.

I pray that those guys end up being the experienced backups this season and that we don't wait a year or two to give Jaden the ball. The kid has the size that Jack doesn't possess. He dropped his commitment to Loserville after Petrino was fired. He had an offer from Kirby Smart at UGA. Either go all in and let this kid learn on the job or forget about 2019 all together. Tired of holding kids in your back pocket if they can contribute now.

Why not? Conservative strategy is for people who have something to conserve.

Yeah, it can. I'm always careful not to post political crap on FB, though, or anything else sensitive. I'm pretty much "read only" on any site that has my real name showing.

Is Lucas pretty much out of the picture?

I don't have a strong opinion on that, personally, just wondering. I haven't seen all of the Star Wars movies, but I've enjoyed the ones I've watched, with the exception of Phanton Menace.

There are probably people who'll say things like, "no, it's just a matter of privacy," but I do see a correlation between general trashiness and making one's Facebook friends list private. It seems to indicate a high level of drama or something. There could even be a correlation with adulterous / promiscuous behavior.

Apologies if you do this for non-trashy reasons. I'm just asking.

Billy Kennedy would be a great hire.

5-4 Eagles now, thanks to the bat of Lynch and an FIU error.
