It's like Groundhog's Day, but you're not reliving Groundhog's Day,  you're reliving the day the Saints hired Mike Ditka.

The Little Engine That Couldn't

Got tired of having coaches poached by the Alabamas and LSUs of the world, so they decided to higher the older, slower, and cheaper who'd maybe stick around. But the ironic end result is that they put such utter shit on the field that they got kicked out of the Locomotive Club and now have their people poached by ECU and Louisville.

There's a life lesson there. Maybe those Boys & Girls Club knuckleheads in the upper deck playing slap and tickle and cheering for the other team will get something out of the experience after all (e.g. a strong urge to hop on I-59 North and never look back).

Man... Faulkner to Georgia seem like a done deal.

Guess they'll just have to find even more mediocre coaches with an even stronger desire to "be here."

Scholarships are generally funded by some foundation that pays the University. For a lot of scholarships, it's the USM Foundation.

If the Athletic Foundation can't cover the whole bill for Athletic scholarships, then *maybe* the Athletic Department has to cover the rest,  but I'm skeptical that this is actually happening.

So much for the whole "lovable loser" thing.

The frickin' pitcher's mound is carpeted?

Is that normal?

$600,000 / year to put up with Kirby Smart on a daily basis is borderline. Might just drive for Uber instead.

A lot of people are comparing this to the Coppolella ban, and rightly so. Seems to me that Coppolella got banned for refusing to snitch, and it's hard for anyone outside of the investigation to get angry about that.

Sign-stealing is a little more accessible for the average fan. But I'm still not sure where the line between "hey, every time the catcher sticks his middle finger down like that it's a cutter" and setting up an elaborate system of cameras and monitors is drawn.

I remember Spygate well. Hard to believe it's been, what, 6 years?

Mount Monken looks very tall because his tenure sits in a valley of shitty coaching. Not saying he was bad- by the time he left, he was pretty damn good. He always seemed more in control of things than Hopson did last year.

I won't link a source because there's really not much more to it than that.  Guy is a graduate of Texas Tech who played a lot of QB for them.  Was all set to play for Tulane next season, but over the weekend someone (?) decided he wasn't Tulane material.

Some have pointed to a sexual assault allegation three years ago, for which Duffey was not prosecuted, but supposedly (coming from local media) that was not the issue.

Meanwhile Keon Howard remains right in the thick of the upcoming Tulane QB competition.

What a bunch of assclowns.

Poor kids my age had to feed coins to a machine with Barbara Bush when we were teenaged boys.

It's scary how hard it's become to distinguish reality from satire at USM. I read those quotes and figured they were made-up.

WTF, man? This is a guy whose greatest accomplishment is a one-and-done in the NIT and who has (?) one D-1 win at USM.

All those "economic impact studies" are bunk. Why should I care if a few out-of-towners buy gasoline at a local convenience store? The guy who owns the store is just stuffing that money under his mattress anyway.

It would be hard to make a podcast right now that isn't depressing.

It's a pretty typical USM story, honestly. You have people who want to follow USM sports, and even be a part of it in some way, but inevitably something pathetic happens and just deflates the fan base. Then it repeats a couple of years later.

TTTT people were getting sponsors, presumably gaining listeners, etc., and then right at the height of it- poof. The actual team craps on itself like a dying dog, and euthanasia suddenly looks kind.

I’ll never have to wonder if I’m interested in Southern Miss basketball as long as he’s there.

I at least listened to about 80% of the games during Doc's last 2-3 seasons and paid to watch a lot of them, too. Just haven't felt any urge to with Ladner, at least not yet.

I think the people in charge underestimate the number of people who are interested but not die-hards.

#19 Re: Southern Miss » Basketball La Tech » 2020-01-10 14:11:56

Could be Doc quit recruiting.

It's possible he was influenced in this decision by, you know, reality and shit.
