If there's not a statement from Dr. B tomorrow defending/supporting Hop, then I don't
much like his chances of making it through this weekend.

I met him a few years ago at an HoF banquet. I made a comment about him being at Ole Miss and his response was "Well, they pay my check, but I'm black & gold"

Show a date or link on tha please.

Apologize N advance if it was some time within the last week.

Yeah, I hate being a USM fan.. It's my favorite mistake

#6 Re: Southern Miss » Get Your Popcorn Ready..... » 2019-02-06 22:01:46

To add..... I'm no big Hop fan as a coach.
I don't think he's the guy to elevate us in any way.

I don't know him, but I've met him and have no problems personally.

Hop and Mr. B are apparently on different pages and with no AD... This does not sit well for Hop..

Maybe he stuck his ass out there in good faith for someone he believes in.

#7 Re: Southern Miss » Get Your Popcorn Ready..... » 2019-02-06 21:54:33

Andre I get the analysis, but I personally think Bennett knew and let it play out until the media backlash hit before making his decision.

Now, I'm okay with that, and his decision to say "no"...

However, he put Hop out there standing with his dick in his hand.

Something has been brewing for a while, one way or another, and it doesn't smell good.

#8 Re: Southern Miss » Art Briles set to become our new offensive coordinator » 2019-02-06 21:39:24

An HC does not, and should not, have to run all of his hires through the president. Period.

Now I do agree that interviews with someone high press like this should be handled a little different.

Pefect USM TTT storm is that we have lost multiple coaches this year, no AD, lethargic fan base.. No hope or inspiration that it's going to change or get better any time soon....

As a lifelong fan, it's F'N hard!

#9 Re: Southern Miss » Get Your Popcorn Ready..... » 2019-02-06 21:17:34

Yeah, if Briles was truly in town Saturday at the baseball banquet, which I've only seen one Twitter post saying it was nice to meet him, then how in the hell does it get to that point without the president knowing?

#10 Re: Southern Miss » Get Your Popcorn Ready..... » 2019-02-06 12:55:54

Yeah, this is not going to end well.

Hop is going to leave USM soon. No way to reconcile this cluster based on how this played out in the media. Public opinion is now on Lamonts side if it’s true Hop didn’t consult with his leaders. You can’t play the, “let him hire who he wants” card with Art Briles, sorry, you just can’t without bringing in Lamont first. Will you be at The Rock if Fedora is back? I can’t think of any other way to pull this program out of the fire right now outside of Fedoras return.


Monkens return!  but yeah, Fedora would be great. I do agree that Hop's days are probably numbered. Probably get this next season and not much else...If that.

I will say this about Jay. It took guts to want to bring in an ex Head Coach of Briles success knowing that he would probably get over shadowed by his presence here.

Also to contradict your boss on a national level.... Hop might have just sealed his future fate.

Hop's comments... This could get interesting.

"Although I respect the decision of Dr. Rodney Bennett, I disagree with it. I am so grateful for the grace and forgiveness God gives me which allows me to inherit his kingdom, which I do not deserve. I have interviewed for an assistant position at Southern Miss and I believe he is a man who believes a second chance. He is a man that seemed sincere and humble in his interview and personally he committed no crime. He may not have acted in the proper protocol but that would be my JOB at Southern Miss. He was interviewing for an assistant position even thought I believe he will be a head coach at a major program in the near future. However, I believe he is a man who does love the Lord and deserves a second chance. He has been banned from a job in college football for three years and has been punished. I understand both sides have opinions, this is just mine."

Sorry just assumed it was last night b/c of the tweet. So he's been in town since Sat?

The fact that he was there at all says this must be a done deal.

#16 Re: Southern Miss » Art Briles set to become our new offensive coordinator » 2019-02-05 14:21:58

Saw on Twitter where he was apparently at the dugout club banquet last night... Any of you guys confirm that?

#17 Re: Southern Miss » Art Briles set to become our new offensive coordinator » 2019-02-04 13:50:47

I'm curious if we've decided it's time to open up the checkbook and bring a "name" in here. Could be an interesting week.

#18 Re: Southern Miss » Art Briles set to become our new offensive coordinator » 2019-02-04 12:35:20

I'm down for it! Lord knows we could use some excitement in the program...

#19 Re: Southern Miss » One million dollars guaranteed for our running backs coach » 2019-01-29 12:40:31

Just to randomly pick a school....ULL's DC makes twice as much as ours. Troy's OL coach was making almost $100k more than ours.

We've got real problems that somebody up top needs to be solving.

#20 Re: Southern Miss » One million dollars guaranteed for our running backs coach » 2019-01-29 07:58:16

Andre I've said the same thing about the transition from Monk to Hop..... We knew we were going to have to pony up some money to keep Monk around, at least get him to a competitive base salary. Instead of going for a new coach knowing we needed that amount of $$, we low ball and get Hop. Nothing against Hop personally, but I don't agree with that move and it's a prime example of  why we never move forward.
