What Have I Missed
Why does everyone on the main board have a chapped ass about USM fans? Have I spent too much time on the political board to realize we're horrible fans?

I would guess the give up is strong. Along with that comes disdain for newbies and rich boys. At least that’s me. I’m on my way out along with my chosen team. Times have passed us both by and I don’t want to chase the past anymore.

RE: What Have I Missed
I don’t hang out there much, but I assume it’s because we b**** a lot about being stuck in a bad conference that’s a bad geographic & cultural fit for for us because we suck at every remotely meaningful sport except baseball and no end is in sight.

Is there any reason a USM fan should be expected to be fun to be around these days?

You belong in the SBC. The football is better. The cultural fit is better. The money and TV is better.

Most would consider that an upgrade.

RE: What Have I Missed
This is my take...

- We whine too much.
- A USM fan doesn't need to start a thread on the main board about how we suck.
- A USM fan doesn't need to start a thread on the main board about how we (and maybe another school) should be in another conference.
- Schools that have been playing football for 10 years have zero respect for tradition/history, because that is something they don't have and can't buy with their better, but still sh!ty budgets.
- There are a few d-bags on the main thread that will counter any positive comment about USM with about 20 ridiculous posts. This isn't because of how USM fans have acted in the past, this is because those few are just 100% d-bags.

That said, if USM rattled off 3 back to back FB championships, can you imagine how we would act on the main board? I have to confess, I'm grinning right now.

IF we were to pull off what UCF did a few years ago, I'd be talking so much trash.. But yea I get it.. The dickhole that called me an old man kinda pissed me off.. And I wondered what his beef is, but then I remember what it was like to be 18 and have my first beer.

Our fans just like to act like ECU fans from back in the day. The difference is that their administration had the balls to act like they wanted out as well. Ours is perfectly content with where we are.


There is zero vision at our University.

Yep. Watched too many throw thousands into the Black Hole that is our Athletic Department for decades, only to get the finger and be told their voice doesn’t matter because they don’t live in Hattiesburg. Why would I willfully do the same after seeing that?

Why do you hate Hattiesburg so much?

I don’t. I hate the notion that the only fans that matter are in Hattiesburg. USM intentionally put their worst recruiter in Jackson because they didn’t care about it. Fans in Jackson and on the Coast have been ignored for decades. There’s nothing inherently wrong with Hattiesburg, it’s that USM administration believe that it’s the only fanbase and city that matters to their success.

Y’all keep saying sh!t like the administration is content when McClain explicitly said when he got hired that he would be looking for opportunities for us to move up.

I know that Bennett talked the college board into letting us apply more of our budget toward athletics because we do not slop at the trough of conference largess.

Why do you hate Hattiesburg so much?

why do you embrace team over country when the offering only has switchblades vs. guided missiles....or better defined....poor long term business planning with the expectation of continuing with a limited budget yielding any semblance of performance valuation....

yeah, that would be the best business model I could draft with the tap wide arse open at a kegger....

this is no longer about loyalty or residence....this is about product and $$$...

it always was until the $$$ passed us by at mach 4 long ago....

You are correct, sir. I’d take that move in a heartbeat.

RE: What Have I Missed
We were on deck to join the American had anyone left for the Big 12. That deal was done. The only problem was no one left the American for the Big 12, so here we are.

Now Connecticut really is leaving the American, so it’s doubtful those conversations have just stopped. Problem is our stock has been falling in the meantime, so who knows how well that’s holding up.

Nobody on campus is happy in CUSA (except maybe Hopson 05-stirthepot). They may be dense sometimes, but they ain’t blind. The current administration hasn’t done itself any favors at times, but where we are now in the conference game is because of decisions made over the course of the past couple decades, not 6 months ago.

And what a s***ty spot it is. We’re dying in CUSA, but just a couple years away from some massive P5 TV contracts expiring and more upheaval. Change is urgently needed, but there’s too many moving parts to act hastily. Frankly, even as much as I’d jump to the Belt tomorrow if I had my druthers, if we made a move now, the game would just change again before we saw any significant effects.
