How about Byron Smith from Prairie View?

I think we're full on our former SWAC coach quota.

Hell, I’d be ecstatic if we could rise up to being the tallest midget.

That's a great deal right now, but 12 years is a long time especially considering how rapidly television/streaming options are changing. That seems like a bit of gamble by both the AAC & ESPN.

12 years prior to today, the iPhone hadn't even been released.

Seen lots of criticism on the defense, rightfully so. Just don’t discount the suns impact on those last two plays. I couldn’t follow the damn ball from my family room so I imagine it had some impact on the field.

The balls we lost in the sun weren't scored as errors. So without those plays, we still made 7 errors in the series. State made none. It was the difference in the series.

Saturday’s weather has a chance for severe storms. I imagine we’ll be playing a DH on Sunday

IPFs seem to start around $15 million (SC's)

That article is 4 years old. It'd be tough to build one at today's costs for less than $20 million. So basically, our entire athletic budget. Then the issue of where to put it. The only logical place seems to be on top of one of the 2 current practice fields, thus leaving you with only 1 outdoor field. Doesn't seem ideal but I would take if it meant we could get an IPF.

We have a lot of other issues that need to be addressed prior to Women's basketball. As long as she's cheap and we have a respectable CUSA finish, who cares.

TBD was Southeastern Baptist. It's some tiny little "college" in Laurel. Ridiculous team to ever schedule!

#10 Re: Southern Miss » Enrollment figures » 2018-09-14 08:31:18

It's definitely a step in the right direction. We need enrollment to increase several years in a row to see a measurable impact. Hopefully we can continue this trend

They fired Jim Tressell for lying about tattoo gate. This to me, is a much worse lie.

I could set the site up that way. Curious to hear what other people think about it.

I think users should be allowed to edit, but only Admins should have delete authority.

This seems like a very strange and desperate promotion. How many people do they really expect to show up who wouldn't normally be coming to the game otherwise?

Couple of thoughts......

1) His ignorance to the history of the program he is leading is obvious. Green Wave fans would agree that he is naive with that comment. Tulane is 1-9 the last 10 times we played them. Hell, they even have a losing record against UTEP historically.

2) Dilbert should use this opportunity to "educate" Dannen on how his program stands historically against USM. Take a friendly jab in the media while the sports cycle is slow right now in the middle of the summer. Dilbert should also throw some shade on the AAC with his response. If Dilbert says nothing that will actually speak volumes for our fanbase IMO.

3) Could USM beat Houston or Memphis the last few years? No. Would like to think Monkens last team would be competitive with those squads but both of them were ranked during the 2015 season so we would have lost.

4) Would Tulane have beaten us since joining the AAC. Probably in 2014 but thats it. Now, I believe Willie Fritz is a solid hire and he will have them competing out of the AAC basement this season and next. But the AD's statement wasn't discussing the future.

FYI, the conversation that was being had when he made that comment was in reference to basketball.

He also mentioned we'd be starting a true Freshman at center, which is a little concerning.

I used to object to some of those schools

A division with South Alabama, Southern Miss, La Lafayette, La Tech & Rice would be one of the best divisions in all of college baseball.

UAB, MTSU & WKU would make for a solid basketball division as well.

I think football would be pretty solid across the entire league, with the exception of Rice.
