Well you do see part of the C-USA logo.

I will add one negative about Bennett that I wasn't thinking about when I made my last post.

At the CUSA baseball tournament, Bennett was interviewed on camera and I was disappointed in his inability to give out some specifics about why anyone would choose USM. Talk about the new engineering programs, the programs in the fine arts, the excellent doctoral programs in things like nursing, speech pathology, etcetera. Shoot, talk about diversity if you must. A lot of other schools are really pretty damned homogeneous in who they admit.

What you shouldn't do is just grin and spout platitudes about how USM is the #1 college in the galaxy or whatever. You're blowing whatever credibility you had when you do that. Tell people something good about USM that they didn't know. I could come up with something.

Diversity and flamingos.  And tater tots.

Time to pull the plug.

So far I have missed it all.

Don't see that changing.

My kids just called me on speakerphone. No matter how old we get, I still wonder if they'll call me, and then I get excited when they inevitably do. Being a father is a tough job. Being a kid is, too.

My kids are cooking me ribeye, rare, baked potato, grilled asparagus, salad, and garlic bread.

And a glass of cab.

Crazy dreams coming tonight.

Melt butter over the whole thing and it's Gordon Ramsey-worthy.

That was a given.

what Fleetwood just did was monumental

Brits generally rub me the wrong way, but for whatever reason I've always liked Tommy Fleetwood.

Is that Mick’s kid?

Since this is Year 3 I am going to fairly compare this staff to Monkens staff. Monken inherited a $hit show and turned it into a nine win team with a CUSA appearance in Year 3.

Since this staff did not inherit a $hit show and had legit talent to work with, develop, recruit, etc.....I dont want to hear about how we lost Ito or how many starters left, etc..... Either you make it to the CUSA championship in Y3 or you dont. Its that simple. If we end up winning 7 and playing in New Orleans you have clearly seen the peak of this staff and need to find the next guy immediately.

I won't go into how that strikes home......well done!!!

it's either that or fock-off....

I caught so much shite for defending Monk out of the gate.....................yeah.................

Monken was two years away from having us in the top 25. Hop is two years away from having us lose to a SWAC opponent

Maybe sooner.

Raise and extension.

We are the Wile E. Coyote of D1 football.

On another note, our yuge adidas contract affords the fb team 2 jerseys and 1 pair of pants per player.

WTF are these people smoking?

"After four total wins from 2012-14, Southern Miss has returned to a consistent winner and contender in the Conference USA, racking up 24 victories over the last four wins. Balance and consistency on both sides of the ball produced eight wins, including a Power Five win for the second straight season (both vs. Kentucky)"

Damn

Haven't been impressed with him or Hop to the Top yet.

Probably won't change.

Is he even worth the 50k he is getting?

That is the question.

Then we need new money options. Toyota recently announced it is investing another $170 million in Mississippi. Sell them naming rights to all sports venues including Tobys new Taco Stand coming in 2021. CSU just sold their stadium naming rights for the next 15 years for $38 million. Start talking to Toyota, or Nissan, Choctaw, Farm Bureau, etc.... All of these companies have advertising budget dollars and investments in MS. We have plenty of ways to create another $2 million in additional dollars annually with minimal effort. New money can replace old money quickly.

Don't tell me.  Tell the lazy fucks running the show.

Keeping it simple. End of academic year evaluation should identify key initiatives for fall of 2018.

1) Create a fund for AD buyout on Feb. 28, 2019(700K). Have deal in place for the hiring of Jeremy McClain and the return of Brent Jones commencing March 1, 2019.

2) Hire Hugh Freeze this summer in an advisory role to the Athletic Department with understanding he is the coach in waiting. Once we fail to qualify for the CUSA Championship game this fall, we begin transition to Freeze and building his staff. Hopson buyout will have one year remaining 12.31.2019 at $500K.

3) Do not extend Scott Berry. Remember when Lucky Charm extended Berrys contract at the end of his fourth straight season of missing the post season? Yeah, what an unbelievable move.....well, do not extend him again. It will work itself out.....

4) Create a committee to explore our options outside of CUSA at the end of 2018 season. Look at creating a new regional conference, joining the Sun Belt or going independent.

5) Enhance our non conference schedules. Agree to two road games, no returns with UGA, Fla, Penn St, GT, Fla St, Texas, TT, Texas AM, etc.....Remember the teams we played consistently in the 90's? Yes, get them back on our schedule. We need recruiting bait and this helps recruiting more than selling seats in the Rock.

This university needs to start looking out for itself and not let those only with self interests of simply "maintaining" lead us anymore. We have been an easy target for inflated paychecks with no accountability (Gilbert) and that needs to end now. Once we start having elevated expectations beyond competing in CUSA and begin taking calculated risks then we become something more.

Very well thought out and aggressive plan to bring USM back to some sense of prominence.

None of it will happen.

The mini Hitler power brokers in the area have what they want now.  They have NO desire for USM to advance and diminish their power and EVERY administrator we have hired can't wait to kneel down and start blowing.
