USM @ UAB: Underdog Dynasty preview and prediction

https://www.underdogdynasty.com/2018/11 … prediction

I got a kick out of this part:

"Golden Eagles fans are a vocal lot and are sure to flood our mentions, but don’t blame us, we’re just the messenger. If anything, if Southern Miss fans want help restoring their football team to its former glory, they might want to talk to UAB fans, who know a little something about convincing an apathetic athletic department."

I interpreted events at UAB in the exact opposite way: it was the proactive athletic department who gave the apathetic fans the kick in the ass they needed.

"Hey, this isn't sustainable. We're going to go back to being a basketball school because the money just isn't there." 5 years later, they'll be opening a shiny, new, 45,000 seat stadium.

It was a classic example of reverse psychology, and one Jon Gilbert should read about while sitting around his next campfire.

Instead, when USM football finally breathes its last breath, we'll probably read that the AD has accepted a lucrative position at some other school the morning after.

Oh, and their prediction is 42-7, UAB.

Ponder that shit, but I won't even mind. Better that than an "aw, shucks" last minute loss and tales of the mean old hurricane that left us one win short.

And this:

"It’s hard to dislike this scrappy Golden Eagles team, but they seem to have reached their ceiling under Jay Hopson"

This is the ceiling?

And what about this gem?

"Through the first ten weeks, the Golden Eagles have been... fine."

How much are they paying this guy, anyway? Does it include wilderness adventures?
