Re: Question re: 2012 and Big East/AAC realignment

USM is now part of the bottom 3rd teams. we don't have the luxury anymore to stick our nose up to anyone. so either enjoy what it is we have become and the crap we play and will forever. or quit going to games like I have.

In terms of talent and performance, I think we've been solidly in the middle third since 2015 / prior to 2012. In terms of overall desirability as a program, and prognosis for the future, yeah, you're right. We're in the 90-100 range.

We're on par with LaTech, Marshall, MTSU. I cannot fathom how the fans who grew up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s feel. To go from being the top program in the state for a time and now this.

Let's just say that, if it were a movie, it would star Charles Bronson and have a lot of sequels.

Past 3 seasons, LaTech has finished 9-5, 9-4, and 9-5...taking 1st, 2nd, and 1st place respectively in the West with bowl wins over Illinois, Arkansas St., and Navy.

It should be noted that in head-to-head matchups in those years, the Eagles have won 2 of three. Head-to-head, we are "on par".  Overall, LaTech has had better seasons and finished higher in the polls.

gotta admit, I did wake up in my vehicle (in the a.m.) at the holiday inn adjacent to jxn memorial after a usm/state game......not a freakin' clue how I got there or survived that evening....

there were some 'blurs' covered, smothered, and motherfuckered in the early '80s....

Had an interesting motel experience last weekend in Hattiesburg. I waited to book a room, and barely got one of the last sub-$200 hotel rooms in the city. I paid $63.

For my money, I got a lodging experience like no other. Their big sign was burned out; if I hadn't passed it on my way into town, I wouldn't have found it. We got no soap or shampoo. They did have ice and a common microwave.

There was a compact pickup truck in the parking lot with chickens in a coop in the bed. I shit you not.

At about 03:00 AM after the game, some crazy drunk, locked-out Southern fan was running around grabbing every door handle and yelling for his buddy.

At 07:00 AM, we got to overhear a man flirt with a strange woman about her car. People say it looks like a Mercedes. She tries to take good care of it. Various permutations of things about those two things were recited.

Our entire time there, we could hear a TV in an adjacent room. It must have been turned up to 40/40.

I just got a survey from these people LOL. Rate my experience LOL.

that's funny stuff. I was driving down I-10 a few weeks ago and I get behind some beat up old car in the right lane. I see there is something moving in the back seat but can't make it out. so as I as I'm passing this car in the left lane I glanced over and this, what looked to be about a 90 year old lady, has like 5 chickens running around inside her car..not in a cage mind you. they are just jumpin and flappin around in the back seat and front passenger seat. I guess they were free range chickens. (need a rim shot here)

I generally support decentralization, but the in-car chicken coop trend is not good.

A lot of that was probably SWAC-related. Hotel proprietors are notoriously stingy when it's Bayou Classic week in New Orleans, for example.

The noisy TV / late night drunk parts just strike me as a natural side effect of people having a good time LOL.
