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.

#5 Re: Southern Miss » The obsession USM fans have with bringing back former coaches is weird » 2020-09-10 13:57:56

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.

Be careful.... they may come up with one so they can teach everyone how evil all white people are. At this point that wouldn't even surprise me. roll

I've heard the Thurs/Fri rumor.....but why? If this individual is coming from another program in the same role are they keeping it hush hush so their signing day recruits can't make a change?

Is Hop and Co. keeping it hush hush so any of our recruits can't change their minds?

Would love to hear Hops explanation if they do announce the O coach a day or two after signing day

well.... last thurs-friday has passed.... now we are all the way to this week's thurs-friday.... still no OC

seriously, how many d1 schools out there without a DC or OC? at this time of year.... smh

Maybe he'll just decide to do the coordinator stuff himself and hire a head coach.   smile  …. well - I can dream, can't I.... roll

"Hopson said he was grateful for his assistants and plans to find folks with similar attitudes and capabilities.

Well damn - I was hoping we would get some with better attitudes and capabilities, but maybe we're happy with being in the middle of the worst conference.
And I guess he thinks coaches like Saban, Swinney, and Orgeron are just figureheads.  If that's the case, I'll take a figurehead any day. Besides, I think he just admitted he's not even a good coach.  roll

Will face a decline?  I almost laughed out loud on this one.
