Damned bravos putting up football scores.

They act like they care.

Could learn a lesson from that.

Remember the Favre4Heisman campaign?

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.

I believe we should have pitched Sandlin against Arkansas last year so it looks like we are changing up our approach this time around.....


Powell and Powers both pitched Sunday.

The decision made itself.

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.

EP Fb toppers would have you drawn and quartered by midnight for this post.

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.

Birds on bat.

Game 2 was better.

Things getting heated. They're throwing at Franklin for some weird reason.

1 - he broke their 1st baseman's arm Wednesday

2 - he is squaring to bunt a man over and the best place to put the ball is up and in

Berry was hiding this kid for the postseason, that mastermind.

Or the kid busted his ass recovering from tommy john surgery to be able to pitch this year.

He started v. Troy in the last mid week game and was dominant.

Good for him.

His mother was crying her eyes out and rightfully so.

Could have had McCarty and Braley last year if Fed had been let go a week earlier.

Per twitterverse he was just hired to coach high school football about 1.5 hours east of Dallas. News released on a Friday evening over a holiday weekend just to minimize the publicity.

Oui are beyond retarded for butchering that hire.

What's the upside of any of these games?

I wouldn't give Troy the time of day, personally. Obviously Jeremy has a connection there... whatever. ULL would be better.

Can't imagine @Miami pays all that much. Seems like they've had poor attendance lately.

They've always had poor attendance.

If given the choice which one would you choose:

A) Make the CUSA tourney finals, lose, get in as a 3 seed and go 0-2 in the tournament with at least one loss to Elon or Jacksonville St

B) go 1-2 in the CUSA tournament, no at large, and Berry is let go in an effort to elevate our program beyond the last 10 years of average success

We did this with Bower I don’t see any reason not to do the same with baseball. It’s been 10 years and we haven’t built on the success of our World Series appearance.


B isn't happening regardless.

If we make it to the finals, I will be surprised with the pitching depth (or lack of) and fielding prowess.

At this point, we are Jeckyl and Hyde.  Hope the correct one shows up in Biloxi.
