Where's "Bowers?" I'm told that what USM needs is "another Jeff Bowers."

I had the DNR tattooed on me after the 2000 Louisville game.

I don't necessarily have a problem with that, but I do take issue with players going Mike Tyson on some annoying random chick at a bar.

You couldn't pass Intro to Calculus using Microsoft Excel? Welcome to the club. Based on my experience, the computers were probably just down.

You smoked dope like 85% of kids in 2018? Have a letter jacket.

You went Mike Tyson on some annoying chick at a bar? No thanks. Take a hike.

Good Lord

When you're hammering the dying patient's chest in a desperate effort to revive him, maybe even the most pathetic of death rattle gasps constitutes progress.

Also, USM will be fine.

Not at all. What goes on at O'Charley's is private sector. I'd even describe it as "aggressively entrepreneurial."

If Kiffin can just keep him away from Eddie Haskell, he should be OK...

Can't imagine what we'll do without that extra park ranger working the third shift at De Soto National Forest. I predict abject chaos.

It's a chance to get to .500 in conference play against a relentlessly average NT team.

I've seen at least one post talking about Doc and team getting to .500 against CUSA. What are the implications if that does happen? Is this praiseworthy, or at least a sign of life?

I'm inclined to say "no, screw that, CUSA is a cesspool," but we're talking about a team that's won less than 10 games per year over the last three seasons.

#9 Re: Southern Miss » Assuming we could find someone better? » Yesterday 20:36:48

I voted Gilbert. The Reed Green video boards are a cool surprise, but not enough to offset some big negatives:

  • An inability to correct glaring problems, like the awful parking situation for football games

  • An obsession with short-term revenue to the detriment of pretty much everything else

  • Some blatant boot-licking that helps absolutely no one but himself

  • More shakedowns directed at his own staff

  • The general one-too-many-bong-hits tenor of his communications

Hopson and Berry tie for the second spot. Both have had some good talent, and recruited some of that talent, but the results never seem to measure up. USM is getting what it pays for: not much more than mediocrity.

Sadler's the opposite: a good in-game coach without the talent to make it work.

I have a higher opinion of Rodney Bennett than most people. Adding real engineering programs is something none of his predecessors accomplished. He is susceptible to the same feel-good kumbaya crap as Gilbert, though.

Sounds like you're describing Bennett, right?

#12 Saints » Tale of two cities: Saints fans show their love; Falcons fans give up » Yesterday 17:57:28

"The mood in Atlanta is one of resignation. "Same ole Falcons." The mood in New Orleans is that of a lover with a broken heart.

In Atlanta, people are complaining about play calling, the quarterback, the coach or the corporate email request -- about renewing their (cough) "Personal Seat Licenses" -- the day after failing to score more than 10 points.

In New Orleans, people were crushed after the Vikings loss. Then they gathered their homemade posters of support and went to Louis Armstrong Airport to greet the Saints -- at 1 in the morning."

Makes me homesick.

"On Monday (Jan. 15), in the dreary aftermath of New Orleans' playoff loss to Minnesota, Jill and Marc Winston sent a sweet valentine to Saints safety Marcus Williams.

The rookie safety had blown a tackle that could have saved the game, and the Winstons knew he was probably suffering. The Winston's three sons had played high school basketball, so Jill and Marc were well aware how harshly athletes can blame themselves for defeats."

Condscend?

Economists with PhDs can't agree on anything. This dude's got it all figured out, though. Hell, he's got a coffee cup icon.

The whole notion of "G5" (hate even typing it) solidarity pisses me off. Most of those schools shouldn't be playing football at any level that has scholarships. They over-saturated the market and that is the root cause of much of the bullshit we're dealing with right now.

"But muh UCF, they're G5 guize!"

Yeah, but why do USM fans have such an inferiority complex? Even more so than schools like ULL, UAB, WKU, etc. Gotta be a reason why our fans are extraordinarily nutty.

USM fans have experienced a small taste of real success, i.e. success outside the G5 circle jerk. That little taste of success, without anything more substantial to follow, just makes them hungrier / stupider.
