an Ohio State guy from ESPN?  I admit, I'm shocked.

“If that’s where we are is that right, is that healthy for the sport when 98 or 99 percent of the participants realize they don’t have a chance before the season starts?” Kirk Herbstreit continued. … d=msedgntp

Thanks beers for the link.  Good info. He may be just what we need. Time will tell, but as you mention, his energy comes across so positive.

Winning games has been little more than a distraction at USM since USM stopped playing teams that are worth a damn.

That's the way I see it too.  sad

Hearing rumblings of an announcement early next week... Anybody else? Also heard an offer was made within a week of JH leaving and it was rejected.

And to whom was the offer made that was rejected?

Will we know our new coach by the end of November like the article implied? Who's watching the airports? Anxious in TN   sad  If the admin screws this up...... nevermind - you guys already know, and it may be too late regardless.

North Tejas

Hope I can sit through the whole game.

I'm confused - I thought we played North Alabama? But not sure I can get excited for either one anyway - somebody north something.

I remember Mullens getting relieved by CJ Beathard recently, during a tough game (particularly for Nick). Beathard looked really good, but there's some kind of bad history there and 49ers fans really seem to despise that guy.

Beathard came in after the game was over.  The defense seemed to back off a bit. They didn't come at him like they did Mullens. However, I will say that Mullens did not have a good game at all. The last interception looked bad. roll

An Old Farmer Catches A Group Of Women Skinny Dipping In His Pond

An elderly man in Louisiana had owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees.

One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond.

He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him: "We're not coming out until you leave!"

The old man frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked."

Holding the bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the alligators!"

Some old men can still think fast.

The point of the story on a Southern Miss Board you ask?

If they don't get the shit fixed fast, some of us old farts might just find something better to watch.   big_smile

Yeah, once you convict the guy in the court of public opinion it's hard to put the proverbial toothpaste back in the tube.

Anyway, it bears reiterating: Tulane is full of wackjobs. You know masturmidget isn't even the craziest person there.

#15 Re: Southern Miss » The obsession USM fans have with bringing back former coaches is weird » 2020-09-10 12:57:56

I agree.  I have posted many times how confusing and bizarre this is to me.

Anyone that has this obsession should set the job of coaching aside and consider:

1 - If there was a job opening in any area other than sports at Southern Miss, would you want it be filled with "one of us" just because it was their dream job - even if they did a mediocre job (If so, this may explain a lot)?  Or would you want them to hire the best person for that job even if they had to fill it again 4 or 5 years later?

2 - If YOU were offered a job at Southern Miss, wouldn't you be a bit puzzled if you were offered the job just because your had a degree from Southern Miss? How motivated are you if they tell you that the reason you were being hired is because they know you will stay forever and they don't have to pay you much?

3 - If you ARE motivated and take a job at Southern Miss, and do everything you possibly can for Southern Miss while there, would you think it makes sense for others to question your decision to leave if you are offered a better job and more than twice the money?

I'm not saying that some people that are extremely qualified for better jobs and more money will not stay where they are simply because they love an area - that's fine. It's just that when you hire them, you need to hire them because they are the very best you can possibly find. Don't let the hiring decision be based on them staying if and when something better comes along - that's just flat out stupidity. The only reason someone is going to come along and offer them double the money is if they do a bang up job for you.

As for the Fedora/Monken/Freeze or anyone else that has been at Southern Miss in the past, I will say that I don't have a problem with it IF they are the best qualified candidate that is interested. But hiring them should not have ANYTHING to do with them being associated with Southern Miss in the past. The question should be - ARE THEY THE VERY BEST AVAILABLE CANDIDATE? period!

My guess would be another one of those famous years -> "maybe" before the season begins and a bunch of "if only" when the season is over.
