It must have been less than $2M. The article indicates that I wrote this on Twitter. I wonder if USM had the goods on CUSA since Bill McCLellan was pretty much involved in the creation. USM was also the last remaining all sports member. UAB did not have football until later. It made me wonder if USM got off much cheaper than Marshall and ODU. If it did, the others may push for the same deal.


Rodney and Jeremy spent the money upfront on legal opinion, strategy, and positioning. By the time we told Judy we were gone, everything after that was a foregone conclusion. Rodney was key in getting this done. When Jeremy asked for money, Rodney already had it lined up. I am very impressed…this entire process was very well played by our administration.
I, for one, think we are going to miss Rodney very much. I shudder to think who our inept college board will shove up our ass this next time.

The Dixie Darling re-naming issue blew up in Rodney’s face big time. He chose the wrong battle with this initiative and very quickly dropped it. Some very wealthy oil and gas donors out of Texas just happened to be married to former DD’s and quashed any discussion about re-naming.

UGA is a shithole
UGA students are shitheads
UGA fans are shiteaters
“Nothing good ever came out of Georgia”

#4 Re: Southern Miss » Are we leaving or not ? » 2022-01-05 19:47:25

The timing of our official announcement to leave will be based on the CUSA bylaws governing this issue. We will not announce until we are well within the timeline where the tournament cannot be pulled.

We will be in the Belt next year. Final scheduling contracts are all that is being settled. Legal issues are settled. LaTech is playing the role of whiny ass titty babies but the rest of what’s left of that worthless conference is ready to get on with it.

Think “why do they get to host the baseball championship when those poopyheads are leaving us”….boo hoo hoo.

Good fucking riddance….SMTTT

So when we are in a conference with App State and James Madison….and you attend a football game at their stadium…and they invite you to play cornhole during pregame festivities….DON’T…they have a different way of looking at things…just saying.

#7 Re: Southern Miss » AAC raiding cusa of 6 more teams. » 2021-10-20 05:30:04

LaTech ain’t going with us…refused to be in the same conference as ULM…not SoMiss…we ain’t got no pride…bring on the gumbo and SWAC premium entertainment.

I kid…I kid…this is the best (only) move for us. I do hate that Tech won’t be going as they are a good rival. However we renew our best historic geographic rivalry in ULL.

But…but…just damn…this is a long way from the days when Slive was commissioner…when we were relevant…<sigh>…fuck.

Fuck ole miss…fuck state…fuck the college board…shit fuck hell damn turd…there, I feel better.

My 92 year old mother in law thinks he’s cute as a button. I actually told him this in front of Jeremy and Brian and he turned red as a stop sign. Now if he can just coach offense……

Bennett had about a thousand angry old white ex DDs call him and threatened to take away all support if they changed the name. He caved.

Plus 4 very wealthy oil and gas people who are married to former DD’s.

PT Barnum was right…there is a sucker born every minute…and I saw one in the mirror this morning.

I hope our toddlers at least got their orange slices and medallions before the drive back to Hattiesburg.

#15 Re: Southern Miss » Realignment: What's the best possible outcome for Southern Miss? » 2021-07-30 11:26:37

I believe the only outcome will be to accept an invite to an evolving SunBelt conference. The SunBelt leadership is at least proving to be innovative and proactive, unlike the shitshow that is CUSA.

Anyone know what is going on with women’s softball. Players are leaving in droves. Someone on here must know the inside story. Inquiring minds want to know.

WTH is Southern Station supposed to be used for?

The catalyst of Southern Station is the strong belief that a vibrant student experience yields stronger alumni engagement throughout the life of former students,” said Jerry DeFatta, executive director of the Southern Miss Alumni Association. “This facility exemplifies the Association’s commitment to student engagement through the creation of a space for students and alumni alike to experience the rich traditions associated with the University.”

These people are barely sane and grossly incompetent.

Per Wikipedia:  Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome. Cohesiveness, or the desire for cohesiveness, in a group may produce a tendency among its members to agree at all costs. This causes the group to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation.

I.E......see the hiring of Ellis Johnson.
