We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.
Where the madness isn't just in March.
You have no favorite boards.
Southern Miss is a dangerous team with tournament time approaching. The Golden Eagles have a roster of cast-off talent that could challenge the "big boys" in March.
For Southern Miss -“The Other Guys” include 2nd team Kansas All-State player Neil Watson who came by the way of Coffeyville CC when it didn’t work out at Toledo. Watson is the catalyst who comes off the bench and is the floor general. The starter at the point guard, is Angelo Johnson the former Trojan who was honorable mention all Pac-10 freshman team that has played point for the past three years but now is most effective at the shooting guard spot playing along side of Watson.
Jonathan Mills former North Lawndale HS player who came by way of College of Eastern Utah and 6-10 Maurice Bolden, a home-grown senior that starred at Jackson Wingfield HS and then junior college basketball at Marion Military Academy.
Good to see Darnell Dodson finally getting his act together. Has always had the tools to be a good player. Lights out shooter at times.
Southern Miss gets it's chance. In the 8-9 game, it can be March relevant for the first time since Clarence Weatherspoon
"Making noise?" Maybe, but unfortunately for them it has been mostly farting noises for the last 3 weeks. They could have had a much higher seed before they pissed it away with losses to Houston and UTEP, really weak wins over bad teams from Rice, SMU, and ECU, and two beatings at the hands of Marshall.
That is a really bad run for a team to be on in its last 7 games before the tournament. 3-4 against non-tournament teams. Marshall was a near miss, but still . . . that's bad. There is no getting around it, especially with the 3 wins being so unimpressive. A 12 point combined margin of victory with one game in OT, and the three opponents were a combined 17-31 in conference and it was 2 home games and a conference tournament opener against a team that had gone to the wire in the first round the night before?
The only reason I don't predict KSU to mash them is the fact that KSU has been up and down all year. Swept by Oklahoma. Swept Missouri. Very much on the bubble before going on the road for back to back wins over top ten teams (Baylor, Missouri), then celebrates by coming home and losing a chance for 4th place by losing to Iowa State. KSU is just too erratic to make predictions about.
