Imagine that. A guy shoveling a million plus per year towards Ladner with zero transparency or accountability “Jason Garrett Clapping” while Ladner drops the latest deuce.

Is this the show with the guys using the microphones as a respirator or the show with tons of long pauses while To The Topping around the truth?

#4 Re: Southern Miss » Basketball La Tech » 2020-01-10 15:44:50

People are giving Ladner a hard time, but I really like the guy. He has set the bar so low I’ll never have to wonder if I’m interested in Southern Miss basketball as long as he’s there. He and Hopson will be coaching two premier FCS programs before long.

Hopson to “resign” with formal announcement as early as Monday. Working settlements for him and his staff with McClain. Buyout won’t be full $1 million for Hop. Not tied to future earnings as part of separation. 

It’s going to happen.....

His buyout is half of the remainder left on the contract, so it’s closer to 500k than 1 million. Regardless, I don’t think it will happen.

It could be just me but Tate looks like he hasn’t seen any real game reps all season......

If Johnson hasn’t shown enough to get reps in this game then this program is pretty much finished for the next 2-3 years.

Geez guys, this legend is too busy loving Southern Miss, threatening to punch imaginary schedule analysts, and protesting Starbucks to coach good basketball. Give him a break.

#8 Re: Southern Miss » Southern Miss Signing Day » 2019-12-18 15:01:54

The juco system around the south and Mississippi especially is too good to ignore. However, this once again proves Hopson’s sanctimonious “right way” crap is a big pile of crap. Is there anything he’s been straight forward and truthful about since coming here?

#9 Re: Southern Miss » Southern Miss Signing Day » 2019-12-18 08:15:18

From what I gather we are signing true titans of academia. They must’ve heard about the Bower Academic Center.

Let’s be real here. What did y’all expect? Just a few games in you know. His teams kinda look like Nick looked as a freshman. He took a beating on here but turned out pretty good. Who knows how Ladner plays out but it’s a little early to blow him up. After all, who else you got?....

He’s got all the time he wants. We’ve fully moved into the “He wants to be here” era at Southern Miss. The success of the university or its athletic programs isn’t even on The top 5 list of priorities.

All those people are there in spirit. Kind of like all the people that never showed up, but flew into a fit of outrage when the football team went to Hawaii.

Before this year many posted how well Doc was recruiting. Give him time they said. Let his recruits mature they said

Doc gone

Jay the saving grace - he shall bring Southern Miss back to the promise land. Granted his resume doesn’t support this theory.

Jay sucks
Docs can’t recruit

Dammit man I’m confused

You gotta give it time. In 8 or 9 years Jay will have us as a perennial NIT bubble team.

I don’t like where we are as a program right now but I don’t think Tulane is 7 points better than us. You could point to not having Quez or Jaylond for the bowl game but that’s a normal thing this season.
They will stick with Jack which is a shame because Tate deserves a shot. We might lose but it’s probably more of a pickem

I was one of the biggest whiners when the QB competition lasted longer than I wanted. On the other hand this is a chance to open it up for next year earlier than spring camp. It’s gotta happen.

Who’s their QB? Are we gonna get beat by that guy?

No, this game will be lost by a coach that values cliches over game tape.

#16 Re: Southern Miss » It’s Saturday, December 7, 2019..... » 2019-12-07 09:51:26

I wonder if Southern Miss’s “Big Donors” will inform McClain they are already working on their flight plans to follow the Lane Train next year or will they let him figure it out once ticket sales go online.

#17 Re: Southern Miss » coaches fired tracker » 2019-12-05 10:55:53

22k for the first ever non Mississippi SEC school to ever visit Hattiesburg if I remember correctly. It’s not just the schedule. While that’s part of it the bigger problem is that this coaching staff has lost the intangible connections with the fan base that are required for college sports. I don’t know of a single person that trusts or has confidence in Hopson and crew. The best argument from his most extreme supporters is “Well we’re not paying him that much, so what do you expect?” People want to believe in and be emotionally invested in their college teams. When the belief and emotional investment disappears so do the fans.

Listened to the Eagle Hour on Monday. Kelly Sanner didn't hold back. A few points from their recap.....

Uninspiring, frustrating
Why would you buy a bowl ticket to see this team?
Can't and shouldn't count Alcorn as a win when measuring the season
What does a team that finished 3rd in their CUSA division bring to the table?
How many games would this team win in the AAC? Maybe Tulsa.....
Difference between this team and a Bower team? A Bower team wouldn't be celebrating and happy on the sidelines down 3 scores
Culture of this program is soft
Lack of leadership
Team has a few throwback players on it but most are "todays" athlete

Then Lee Roberts spoke...

You can't let one season or one game get you down?
We were winning against La Tech just couldnt finish
We beat a good UAB team......
We are thin at WR and RB

Per Lee Jaylond is still on this team dealing with a knee injury......BS

My favorite aspect of that show is how they always refer back to the Bower or previous years. You’d have to hold everyone but Luke at gunpoint to give credit to the Fedora years. A new fan listening to that show would never know Southern Miss had a football program in 2011.

#20 Re: Southern Miss » Year 4 Reminder..... » 2019-12-02 19:10:53

“War daddies”... LOL. Every time Hopsom says something in the preseason the opposite is usually true:
Kwadra has a hand injury and will be unavailable - he played in the first game
The O line will be the strength of the team - No explanation needed here
The defense will be great especially the secondary - They were not even good in the worst division in FBS.

Is Hopsom a liar or just really bad at evaluating football teams?
