Make no mistake. Jaden Johnson is the next Kyler Murray. If you remember Johnny Manziels first game against Bama expect that.....except Jaden doesn’t lose. We will beat State by 17 and Troy by 20. Expect to be top 10 by October 1. 

No way we don’t get a CFB spot with two SEC wins on the road including mighty Bama........

Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery.

Imagine if we just hired this guy.

I'd throw a ticker tape parade.

I don't give a shit what he said.

He is 100x the coach Hop is.

He is 100x the recruiter Hop is.

Bring him on, warts and all.

Kudos for him and Liberty.

Not really. You have to know who you are and be confident with that. Bower did more with less for most of his time at USM. He was paid below what others received that had far less success. Only time I can think he legitimately tried to leverage his deal was when he interviewed with Wyoming. Hop is comfortable with his salary. If he wins CUSA which he isn't far from doing he will be good with a 25% increase and extension.

When you set the bar so far up your arse like UAB is doing its absolutely dumb. Clarks name might come up in a few openings but it wouldn't take much for those trying to hire him to see UAB for what it has been the last few years. Take away all the benefits they have been given and put them on a level recruiting field and see how he does. Don't give him a half a million more per season at this point. Good lawd.

We do set the bar low.

That's one thing going for us.

Glad we are able to put our best foot forward and put on a show for these HS kids and their parents.

Southern Miss has zero to do with the video BROADCAST. 100 PERCENT THE CHAOS WHICH IS OUR MHSAA .

Good.  They said a 'company' was responsible for the broadcast but didn't specify if the problem was with their equipment or our infrastructure.

Crossfire was year 82 and year 84.  Year 83 doesn't exist.  They skipped it.

But then Hop to the Top can coast.  Well, coast a bit easier.

I wouldn’t think so. He fired some assistants that were close to him.

Ace...

Yes, but I think he would give hop more rope.

One of the first "new" cars my dad ever purchased was a 85 Chrysler Fifth Avenue. Black and Gray with some chrome spokes. What mom really wanted was one of those Cadillac Sevilles that reminded me of a funeral hearse with that slanted trunk.........what dad really wanted was a white 84 Corvette he had his eye on for a long time......but dad never got what he wanted.......

Wasn't the 84 corvette equipped with the ill fated 'crossfire' injection system.  That engineer should have been hanged in public.

Oh wait, any public hanging is racist.

The Eaglepost Fb page has become populated with an inordinate amount of toppers, most of whom you can't even joke with.

Still have some fun poking the bear then watching the shit show.

His family is from Mississippi. A bump in salary and return home might be enough motivation for him. Worth exploring.

Will he have to complete diversity training to be considered?

Money talks and the big money in NC said they wanted Mack back. Apparently his wife was big in real estate when they were there years ago. They have maintained those real estate connections and relationships, many who are big donors, and the deal was in place over a month ago for Mack to return and to pay the buyout of LFed.......

The 'money' people here would rehire EJ before LFed.

So, wonder what our plan is for a replacement?

With flamingo boy at the helm, we may get the first transgender AD (either direction) to promote diversity.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

He was a special guest to discuss the background of Jon Gilbert last week. Jamie said he hasn't heard anything about the rumors in Hattiesburg but thats not surprising since this is how Jon has been since he has been at USM, no communication, keeps things close to his chest. USM has experienced four AD's since 2011 and a total of seven AD's all time at Southern Miss. He says fan feelings at USM about Dilbert are mixed. He is more of a behind the scenes AD with highlights including the volleyball facility (this is because Favre's daughter plays, nothing more, nothing less) , painting, sweeping, power washing and the sound system. Per the ECU Sports host, they got a quote from 247Sports that Dilbert is on record stating that Dave Hart reached out to him about the AD job, he didn't reach out to Hart regarding ECU. Gilbert apparently played football in North Carolina in college and has ties to the state. ECU's top football target is the James Madison coach who is also a Lenoire Rhyne graduate so they believe Jon is a favorite for this reason.

I have been following the ECU Banter Board for years and outside of the long shot of getting the JMU coach and staff they seem to like Butch Jones with Gilbert as the next play for their program. They are frustrated with the fact that other schools are firing and hiring the best available and know its inevitable that Coach Mo is gone after the NC State game this weekend. That said, one would guess they already have a plan in place with Butch Jones or the JMU coach but since both are still navigating college playoffs they will wait until they can officially make their announcements.

All this smoke sounds like Gilbert is done at USM.
