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.

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.

“War daddies”... LOL. Every time Hopsom says something in the preseason the opposite is usually true:
2017
Kwadra has a hand injury and will be unavailable - he played in the first game
2018
The O line will be the strength of the team - No explanation needed here
2019
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?

Hopson Sucks

#bringbackthehat

Analysis complete

TLDR, but here are my thoughts. People think it’s so cool to hate Ellis Johnson, but he had one bad season. Jay Hopson is doing long term and irreparable harm. Anything less than a public statement confirming McClain will not extend Hopson until some results are produced will be a killer for the program. The only way to turn things around immediately is to fire him tomorrow.

He doesn’t give a fuck about this game or this school. His only concern is holding McClain hostage for an extension under the guise of assistant pay raises.

Pathetic. The players seem to have less energy than they did last week. Championships on the line and we have players sitting out to be udfa’s and playing like it’s a no pads walk through.

This is the first year in very long time I’ve not contributed to the Eagle club nor attend games.  Reading this further supports the decision. 

Stang, hopefully you’ll get a response as I did not. They blew up my phone, call and text, and email earlier in year. Once I mentioned not donating until I get answers everything stopped.  Wish car warranty and consolidating my student loan debt (which do not have) could be that easy

I’ll never get rid of mine as long as Rayner’s keeps giving out free drinks with an entree purchase. That’s like money in the bank.

I can’t tell what’s going on either. I tried stalking everyone mentioned on social media, but I don’t speak jive.

They had to retract that. TTT Talk podcast talks about it. Still need either a LA Tech loss or a lot of luck to get a CCG berth.

I saw that. If someone at Southern Miss is really upset that they took away the 3 loss tiebreaker scenario they need to get some professional help. The day I feel cheated that USM got screwed from winning the division after 3 loses in CUSA is the day I officially adopt Kennesaw St of the FCS as my college team not because I took a few summer classes there but because they have the same colors as my USM gear and both have winged mascots......

The people that are outraged over this are just looking for someone to blame other than their chosen coach for life. They know we suck and blaming Judy is easier than admitting we have a bad head coach.

how many scholarships do we have now?

Apparently too many to offer a full 25 to the upcoming class and simultaneously too few to actually hold Hopson accountable.

Speaking of participation trophy winners I’ve read 3 times online today that a new 4 year contract has been secured for Hopson.

Before you get mad, consider the significance of the Kiss comment.

There’s some guy named Richy in that group talking about lubricating himself. I never thought the end of USM football would look like this.

what was the announced crowd

20,369.

Not quite the 17,705 announced for Bower's last home game, but definitely within vomit-splattering distance.

8500 showed up to an Arizona State wrestling match. I’d guess the crowd was closer to that than this 20k BS. There were 52 people sitting in the upper east side 20 minutes before game time. I think a handful of WKU fans sauntered in after kickoff bringing the total up there to a reticent 60.

It’s been an exhausting 8 years watching this program die. I’ve moved onto the acceptance phase of grief. I nominate Nugget’s Ghostbuster to write the obituary.
