Somewhere Jeff Bower has to be laughing his ### off

Somewhere Jeff Bower has to be laughing his ### off 


I'm by no means a fan of the "chickens", but even a fool can see the demise of the USM football program started when they let Bower go for the flashy new guy (Fedora) who only used them for a stepping stone to a legit conference. Not only would Bower have won y'all 7-9 games a year, but he also would have been there from now on. So the way I see it - y'all made that bed so enjoy it!!

I'm pretty sure Bower was on the selection committee for hiring EJ. If we would have kept the same plan and hired another up and coming energetic coach looking to move up, we may not be in this position, instead of a coach on the way down. What a disgrace.

Fedora, terrible mistake.  That 13-2 season was a disgrace.

I agree, what genius mad the decision on the Bower change- if AD made the decision-why is he still at USM????  we went from a program where we would play any one aat any place at any time to a public embarrasment.  Only team in our NCAA division to lose every game.  I have been a dues paying alum for 40+ years lot of good years, some tough years, but this is the worst.

LOL - that AD is no longer at USM, which I think is a good thing, but not because he fired JB. And to his credit, he also hired the guy who got us a 12-2 season.

Anyone that says firing Bower was a mistake is laughable. Fedora did what Bower was doing his last few years and then exceeded anything Bower did. No one could have predicted what happened with Johnson. We are one good hire away from being right back in the thick of things next season. There's a lot of talent on the field. Our high school coaching staff was in over its heads and had no idea hot to utilize it.

Fedora was a good coach, probably the best I have seen at USM. Best wishes in hiring a new coach.

Bower would not be laughing at his beloved USM, Believe it or not. Bower feels the same pain as the other Eagle nation.

As for Fedora, he was a fraud, he will fail at UNC where the competition is tougher.

LASTLY, Bower built USM to the point to where Fedora could have his 1 season in the sun.


Mike Bobo would be a great fit for the eagles,  would hate to lose him, but he is responsible for Matt Stafford, David Green, and now Aaron Murray at UGA whom all will be or was NFL QB's. Mike is a great recruiter and would lure a great staff. It is his time to lead. Loves to pass the ball !

I agree with some of what you said there. 

You are right about Bower feeling the pain as others at Southern Miss.  The guy loves Southern Miss with his heart and soul. 

I'll have to disagree about Fedora.

When he came in, we didn't even have enough players on scholarship.  He had to do some hard work in recruiting to get to where he was able to win that Championship.  It is hard to be a fraud and go 13-2. 

He'll do really good things at UNC or wherever he ends up.  He's one of the hardest workers in the business. 

Agree with you about Bobo, he's done a great job at Georgia.

A fraud that went 8-4 in his first year at NC? They are on probation, dont have a full load of scholarships, and knew they couldnt play in a bowl. They actually won their division in the ACC but could not play in the championship game because of the NCAA sanctions, correct? I sure wish we would have had that fraud this year!

8 and 4 in what league ? Oh yeah, the ACC, a Huge power house conference.

Did't he get beat up by lowly Georgia Tech, 68 to 50 ? Pee wee herman could have won 8 games in that league!

Good luck on you search :)

Wrong on all accounts, but Mike Bobo. He would be a good choice.

Fedora was 8-4 (5-3) his first season in the ACC. Fraud?

You just commended Bower for "Building" USM into a place where Fedora could win, then dog a league that is better than Bower's league.

You want me to start listing how many teams of significance Bower actually beat? The answer is not what the Sunshine Pumper Old School Golden Eagle fans would have you believe.

Bower didn't build USM. We were winning long before he got here and kept winning for four seasons after he was gone. Ellis Johnson took us down, not Fedora. Stick with Rosebowl Steve at Gene's Page. You're ignorance will fit right in up there.
