I wonder if Southern Miss’s “Big Donors” will inform McClain they are already working on their flight plans to follow the Lane Train next year or will they let him figure it out once ticket sales go online.

Most are already going to oxfart on weekends.

Never been to Oxford, but Starkville and MSU bore the crap out of me. It's weird how quiet that campus is.

I get it, though. I really miss football, and the weekly pick 'ems against Nowhere State just don't do it for me.

I thought you enjoyed the watch museum......

I’ve changed my mind......I want App St in New Orleans. It’s 14-0 App St 5 minutes into their championship game.
Take the bowl game against them and prove the following:

Dilbert and Hop tried to hide from them in 2018 to save a bowl bid and ultimately lost. Proves Hop would have finished 6-6 in 2018

Sun Belt is far above CUSA. Getting your most accomplished and historic program trashed in their backyard should do wonders for Judys career

Hop is out of his league. Getting curb stomped by App St should really show Hop he is out of his league and role

See how the toppers and Jeremy spin this crap

Bring on App St in New Orleans....come on Judy, broker the deal This afternoon

Championship Saturday in College Football......and we essentially finished tied with CHARLOTTE for 6th place in CUSA.......Still no word from Jeremy on his thoughts and how/when we are going to “fix the glitch”......


#9 Re: Southern Miss » LFed to .... » 2019-12-06 20:47:52

Is it possible Hop becomes Ole Miss DC? Bump in pay, back at “his” school, no Lamont.......

This could “fix the glitch”

#10 Re: Southern Miss » LFed to .... » 2019-12-06 20:04:53

It will be a Briles one way or another. Kendall probably needs a job assuming he won’t be retained by Norvell at FSU. Lane gave Kendal a safety net from Baylor in his first year at FAU.

#11 Re: Southern Miss » LFed to .... » 2019-12-06 19:40:21

Watch him hire Briles as his OC.......

Never mind. INFLCR Founder & CEO Jim Cavale. I have never heard of him.


He has a popular "I want your job" Podcast.

He looks like the dude in the last Jason Bourne movie who had info on Operation Blackbriar.......

Add Fresno St to the list......

and probably the Dallas Cowboys......

#15 Re: Southern Miss » LFed to .... » 2019-12-05 22:01:10

Sounds like Lane is going to Oxford

#17 Re: Southern Miss » coaches fired tracker » 2019-12-05 13:17:46

I will also bet you will not see USM v App St in New Orleans. Hop should have been 6-6 last season and the school avoided the makeup game for a reason......... He will get his doors blown off by App St and finish 7-6 this season, 6-6 against FBS opponents.

#18 Re: Southern Miss » coaches fired tracker » 2019-12-05 13:09:05

Im not excluding visiting opponents as a factor that impacts attendance but it doesn't create 40% of the empty seats. When I went to USM I didn't care who we were playing because I just wanted to see USM play. I've seen us play Northern Illinois, Samford, Utah St, etc....and never thought about not going because of who the other team was......

Jeremy scheduled JSU for two reasons......1) 6 home games and 2) 30K in the stands with a high contribution from the JSU supporters. He now has 5 more games to sell including a dud with USA. Its the opener and the only way you generate demand for the opener and conference play next season is if you have a new product that hasn't been seen yet. Jack won't be the qb and Hop won't be the coach.

Its impossible to have this much smoke right now with radio shows, podcasts, player portal transfers, players quitting, poor attendance, social media, etc... talking about how bad this team is without having at the least a small fire going on internally. Changing coordinators has been done and it isn't the solution.

I still have a feeling Hop is going to exit on his own before this season is officially closed. The dominos for coaches hasn't started yet. You will have openings at UTSA, ODU, FAU, UAB and possibly LA Tech to fill once AAC spots open up at UCONN, Memphis, USF, Cinci and Tulane. Not to mention ULL and potentially Arky St(Anderson now linked to Mizzu). Thats 12 schools looking for the next diamond in the rough.

tg300 said it on another board that Jeremy has to have a list 10 deep at all times for our next coach. Zero chance he isn't getting ahead of this right now. He literally just went thru this last year and I guarantee he is using that experience to better prepare this time around.

#19 Re: Southern Miss » coaches fired tracker » 2019-12-05 10:06:04

We had 30K for ODU and 29K for UTSA in 2015. 29.5K for Savannah St and 28K for Rice in 2016.

Its not the schedule........

McClain's marketing campaign to only fill 80% of the stadium per game would have generated approximately $3 million in gate for the 2019 season. We averaged under 25K per game this year with the last home game with the conference west title on the line only earned 20K in gate. His marketing campaign for 2019 to fill only 80% of the stadium was off by half a million dollars in gate......or Hops 2019 base salary.

He was off by half a million while hoping to fill just 80% of the stadium.........

He added alcohol sales and still missed his gate by half a million........

In reality Dilberts last year with essentially no marketing effort or gimmick campaign yielded comparable average gate results without the benefit of alcohol sales.
