They want us to do their job now. I'm glad I got away from all this a few years ago. Unfortunately it appears they have surrounded themselves with the same type of people and the ones that want better are being shut out and not listened to.

Just lazy and horrible. I think back to the marketing piece they sent to the TX Alumni for an event in March and it had the wrong date and didn't even have the location address for the event.
We had a "soft" unveiling for new uniforms last week that was half assed at best and you can't even read a recap of the event or see the pictures from it on our own athletic website 3 days later......

Zero accountability for this clown show and yet people want to defend it by saying we are financially strapped or that some fans are just negative.........those are just sad excuses for avoiding the reality of this situation. Hell this program was built on doing more with less well before Gilbert RV and LGBTQ Bennett stepped foot on campus.

Split, but "a healthy Griggs" is a unicorn. Here's to Unicorns.

(All Day I Dream About Southern - A D I D A S.)

I just remember Griggs coming in during garbage time against UT and going like 80+ yards in a few short minutes.......and I remember my former boss who was the UK Alumni President saying that kid would have beat UK if he played the entire game. Flip side maybe we don’t beat La Tech or The Alamo if Griggs played I guess.....

It really saddens me how USM sports have been allowed to just sort of wither away while everyone's busy with Tigurbation and God only knows what else.

I believe this university is shifting towards reducing our sports classification within the next 5 years. Southern Miss and their lack of effort and commitment will be a member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference before this is done.

EagleFWB hit the nail on the head.....

We are never prepared and what happened yesterday is the fault of our AD, period. I have no problem with the Gold uniform. I understand that Adidas wants to brand/market us across all sports and will attempt to be consistent with all team uniforms and identity. I'm sure we would all like something that represents the colors and look of our past but that doesn't necessarily translate to track and field and soccer, etc.....

The problem I have is you have this event promoted as a new uniform unveiling to excite the fan base and you had only half of one uniform available for the unveiling. The pants were all practice shorts. The other "uniforms" were practice as well. If this $hit isn't ready, do it properly when its ready. Don't tell me the manufacturer wasn't ready because its your job to have this done, period. I'm sure Dilbert won't even admit it was done poorly because he is exceptional at avoiding anything related to his actual job responsibilities.

That Paddy McGeek is horrible. Dude is never on top of anything. Had to wait a few days after Howard quit the team because he was on vacation to even tweet about it. Then he releases the uniform story incorrectly and has to update it to clarify the white and black unis were only practice unis.

Munz was leaps and bounds ahead of the other guy reporting on USM.

#10 MLB » MLB New Ballpark » 2018-07-10 14:31:01

Tampa unveiled the design of their new ballpark. Similar to Mercedes Benz in Atlanta the new design is taking sport venues to the future. Completely enclosed translucent and conditioned roof, non retractable. I was a fan of their first design a few years back with the sail roof on the waterfront but this one is impressive. Stadium will have 28K seating with another 2K for standing room only. I wish the Rangers were a little more cutting edge and creative on their new ballpark like Tampa.



#11 Re: Southern Miss » Shannon Dawson: The Day of Reckoning Cometh » 2018-07-09 17:54:57

It’s not that hard......Give him the new revenue increase from our outstanding media rights package plus the 50K we are already paying him and call it a day. Do I think he is worth 250K? No, but at this point we are all out of options for this season.

This is not that hard, it really isnt......You cant change your conf slate unless you go independent. You can't schedule the P5 at home and you need cash and only the P5 pay. We need two money games or whore games per season because we are poor. As of today you have the following openings:

2020 1 money game
2021 2 games (1 needs to be a money game)
2022 2 games (both need to be money games)
2023 2 games (1 needs to be a money game)

You have already maxed out Auburn and Bama as paydays. Florida has openings each of those seasons. South Carolina has openings 3 out of 4 seasons....Texas AM, Arkansas, Pitt, Fla St, Kansas, TCU, OK St., etc..........

Schedule your two for zeros with programs we have played historically and get your old conf mates to do a 1-1 or 2-2 like Cinci, Tulsa, UH, SMU, Memphis, etc. to fill in the non payday games as home games.

Hell I went to USM when we only had 4 home games. I supported them then I will support them again if they have to go down to 5 and add even an additional whore game. I had just as much fun if not more cheering on the Eagles in person in Gainesville, Blacksburg, Raleigh, Happy Valley, Oklahoma, etc.....

That cash can stay within the department and 2 million additional per season can do wonders on our budget.

#14 Re: Southern Miss » Financial data » 2018-07-06 21:30:53

We are Sears......we should have shifted our business model in the late 90s when we still had brand recognition and we didn’t because we are lazy and had zero foresight from those in charge. Now, we have tired real estate holdings in the worst location and everyone knows nobody is buying what we sell because they can get a better product somewhere else. We have nothing to leverage to return to profitability.

This program is done. Everyone knows it. Those that don’t and still have hope are a big part of the reason we are where we are today. USM athletics has an extremely high chance of disappearing and going defunct at our current financial pace within the next 5-7 years.

Gilbert should tell them to pound sand and call his Vol buddies for a game at Neyland.

That Vols loss last year was pathetic. I’ll even say a Bower team would have handed them a double digit L. Monken and hair gel would have beaten them without a doubt. Losing to UAB at home by 18 only to follow it with that performance against the worst team in Vol history.....That loss was final nail in Hops hope chest to either making it or not at USM.

What have I missed??? I don't get the space camp reference?

Gilbert has been spending money that we don't have on stuff that doesn't help our immediate needs today. He has earned north of $500K to date on the job and instead of addressing our immediate concerns regarding our failing conference affiliation, poor attendance, coaches salaries, venue upgrades, etc....he is writing novels about camping trips....which exposes how disconnected he is from the alumni and donors of our program.

You must have missed Part 2, Outward Bound.....

"In this edition of To The Top, we hear directly from the Student-Athletes who were involved in our inaugural Leadership Academy, and who engaged in our recent Outward Bound wilderness experience in Minnesota. Your Eagle Club donations made this trip possible for me and our student athletes from non revenue generating sports.....I am now the proud owner of a new Yeti Cooler and about $400 in new North Face gear that I can use in a few years when I find another way to expense a return trip (or two) to the star of the north."
