It's the only one that isn't required by any gov't entity.

The real fix would be to apply for a waiver from DOE (which would be granted without question) to eliminate all this state testing BS and allow it to go away along with it's exorbitant bill.  You then use the ACT as the bar like everyone with common sense does.

Why in the wake of a tragedy do individuals immediately assign blame for the results of the mentally challenged? Why does the media fuel the fire to provide these unworthy opinions a primetime platform to promote this terrible and unsympathetic narrative while ignoring the equally terrible ongoing tragedy that continues to plague the nations third largest city?

I don't know if we will ever understand why the guy in Texas did what he did or why the guy in Ohio carried out a copycat massacre. The guy from Texas lived in a thriving town in north Dallas, attended a highly ranked high school, and seemed on the surface to have many opportunities to provide a positive and successful life path. Instead, he jumped in his car and drove 10 hours to kill 22 people. The guy from Ohio seemed to have a history of hate and anger that plagued him during his formidable years. He had hit lists and even murdered his own sister in his rampage.

Whats lost in the agenda driven media era we live in is the fact that another 59 people were shot this weekend, 7 of them fatal, in Chicago. That brings the annual death toll in Chicago to almost 300 year to date. But for some reason, those lives don't seem to matter to those either already holding a political seat or those that are vying for a political run. Its not as appealing to count the 7 lives in Chicago, or really the 9 in Ohio compared to the 22 in El Paso. Its not hard to see why. Its just a damn shame that people think we are too stupid to see it.

Continue to pray for the lives of all that were lost and continue to be taken by senseless individuals, regardless of political beliefs or agendas.

Saw today the El Paso terrorist only ended up at that location because he got lost and stopped there because he was hungry.

And the killings in Dem strongholds don't matter.  They don't fit the narrative.

1. If the QB controversy is a stunt to gain interest it does the opposite for me.

2. Don't understand the love affair with Jack, was a half-ass QB who personally blew several games last year.

3. It was obvious Tate was better.

Neither is a legit college QB.

#7 Re: Southern Miss » Caillet for Creel » 2019-07-12 13:00:40

Creel has proven to be a good recruiter.  Hell, he took some very good talent from under our noses to La Tech.

That position is recruiter first, coach second.

Creel > BA in that category currently.

Maybe we learned from our mistake.  (I'll laugh at myself for that)

We pass on a brilliant offensive mind because he's a turd in the court of public opinion but was cleared of any wrongdoing by the ppl who fired him without cause.

We now hire a recovered (ing?) person who is also uber talented but has gone from the highest paid assistant in mens hoops to Austin Peay with a well documented list of fuck ups.

Top priority is getting the field fixed where we can even be considered for a regional again.

We could have been ranked top 10 this year and would not have been considered as a host site.

Its one of the biggest jokes on some other boards where people are asking where all the Berry haters went.....

Simply stated, being good keeps you employed.......pretty much in any profession.....until it becomes cost prohibitive.

I would ask Jeremy and the Eagle fanbase with rose colored glasses this simple question....If you knew 10 years ago when you hired Berry that you would miss 4 out of 10 tournaments and not have a single win against a 1 or 2 seed over a 10 year period would you still hire Berry for the next 10 years simply because he won regular season and tourney CUSA titles?

At Southern Miss, just passing the grade is what is expected, nothing more. Here are a few points from his contract extension a few years ago after missing four straight regional tournaments....

"Despite missing the NCAA Baseball Tournament for the fourth straight year, Southern Mississippi head baseball coach Scott Berry's job is not only safe but his contract will be extended apparently.

The Hattiesburg American reported Tuesday morning that USM Athletics Director Bill McGillis indicated that Berry, whose contract is set to expire on June 30th, will remain with the Golden Eagles

"It will definitely be extended, and I'm looking forward to his continued leadership," -USM Athletics Director Bill McGillis

The Golden Eagles' season officially ended Monday when the team was left out of the NCAA Tournament for the fourth straight season. Prior to that, Southern Miss had played in nine consecutive NCAA Tournaments.

"We were not rewarded for our strong regular season this year but I'm confident we'll be a Regional team again," McGillis told The Hattiesburg American. "That's our expectation, and I believe coach Berry is fully capable of leading us there.

Paired with UGA who has FAU as a 4 seed

We will host the super regional CUSA rematch

If the NCAA has any other option, there will be no tourney action at PTP.

Lots of chickens being counted pre hatch.

FAU is 2 seed and would have option before us anyway.
