  1. Week 1 - @USC @Jumbo Week 3 - vs UMass @joedchi @Rome Week 5 - @UL Monroe @jared2001usa Week 9 - vs Ole Miss @HughFreeze$$
  2. Good question. I think I'm excited for Rice the last game of the season, because it could be a really huge game. I also am looking forward to playing against some new teams on the other side of the conference division this season - WKU and the FAU Owls, a team on the rise for sure. Then there is the intrigue of the instate matchup with Ole Miss I think people will enjoy Absolutely - copy away!
  3. (Hattiesburg, MS) The Southern Miss Golden Eagles have officially released their 2023 football schedule, which includes multiple exciting out of conference games. In the first game of the season, the Eagles will travel to Los Angeles to face coach @Jumbo and the 2022 Semifinalist Trojans of USC. Fans will also be excited that in-state rival Ole Miss, led by coach @HughFreeze$$, will be coming to The Rock in week 9 for the first time in program history. Coach Ricky Campbell and the Eagles will travel to face Louisiana Monroe in week 5. This will be the third straight meeting in the series. Coach @jared2001usa and Ricky Campbell have developed a friendly rivalry over this time, and the game in 2022 gave the Eagles quite a scare. The out of conference schedule wraps up with the Minutemen of UMass coming to Hattiesburg in week 3. Coach Campbell spoke briefly with the press today discussing the newly released schedule. “We’re really excited to expand out and take on teams that have had substantial recent success, like USC. If we want to be respected as one of the top G5 teams, we must travel and compete in these kinds of games. Also, I also think our fanbase and college football in general wants to see more games with in-state rivals playing, so I will be looking forward to facing Ole Miss this season as well.” The Eagles have high expectations going into 2023. They return 20 out of 22 starters from 2022, including senior QB Alexander Cassidy and the National TE of the Year award Winner, Jeremiah Kendrick. Coach Campbell was also busy on the recruiting trail last season, bringing in the #65 recruiting class in the country. The Chicago Tribune recently published a pre-season ranking that had the Eagles just outside the top 25 at #35. 2023 Football Schedule Week 1 – at USC* Week 2 - BYE Week 3 - vs UMass* Week 4 – @ UTEP Week 5 - @ Louisiana Monroe* Week 6 - BYE Week 7 - vs UTSA Week 8 - @ North Texas Week 9 – vs Ole Miss* Week 10 – vs La Tech Week 11 - @ UAB Week 12 - BYE Week 13 - @ WKU Week 14 – vs FAU Week 15 - vs Rice Week 16 - BYE
  4. Sorry to bother again @Rome. Can you check my coach prestige old value? The old value of 100 doesn't appear to match up with a 2.5 prestige coach. Thanks
  5. @Rome my old value for prestige in 2022 was 2.5 and 1.0 in 2021. The 2023 version has me as a 1 instead of 2.5 Thanks for putting this together!
  6. Things that stand out: 1) Decision to redshirt or play RB Mike Freeman 5-10 229 Fr Manchester (Midlothian VA) 3.0 of 4.5 [Power]- I say sit and let Madison go if you're confident in him. 2) DE Dominic Acuna 6-5 255 (Fr) Pottsboro (Pottsboro TX) 2.5 of 5.0 [Blitz] looks like a beast to look out for this season 3) Start the freshman OLBs

  8. Southern Mississippi pre-progression:
  9. The upcoming stars for the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles were formally announced last night during a booster event at a popular bar by campus, Brewsky's. Coach Campbell's class is well balanced with many future starters - even including two stud special teams players for the future at kicker and punter. The class ranked 65th overall out of 142, adding much needed depth and talent for a team that returns 20 of 22 starters next season. Fun fact: The recruiting class contains two identical twin DT brothers with the same name from Hebron Christian HS - the McManus brothers. Posting the same measureables and skill level, the twins have been inseparable since birth and will look forward to playing at the next level together.

Blue chip prospect G Harrison Yanda will be off his redshirt season and ready to protect star QB Alexander Cassidy in his senior season. C Kenneth Shakelford, a senior transfer from NIU, will fill a significant void at C left by departing senior Luke Doherty. Coach Campbell hopes that the new look OL will help the running game, which struggled for much of the 2022 season.

  10. (Hattiesburg, MS) The Ricky Campbell era at Southern Miss is going full steam ahead in 2022. The Golden Eagles saw similar success to the rookie season for Coach Campbell. They posted a 9-4 record with a convincing Hawaii Bowl victory over a formidable Air Force squad led by coach @stinsy "I couldn’t be more proud of this team and what we have accomplished this season. The main goal was to be consistent. It’s easy to have one good year, but building the culture is what sustains success,” said Coach Campbell. "I saw more of our guys coming into workouts early. More people are buying into what we are trying to build here in Hattiesburg. I want the brand here at Southern Miss to be one of achievement and excellence." The dream ending to the Eagles’ season was far from a given mid-year. Riding a two-game losing streak and hindered by a benign running attack compared to last season, Coach Campbell made a controversial decision to burn the redshirt of a coveted recruit that Coach Campbell fought UL-Monroe coach @jared2001usa for in 2021, freshman Leonard Gordon. “I just remember Coach coming up to me in the locker room and saying next man up. I was shocked, but I knew it was time to get to work,” Gordon said. The plan worked. Southern Miss finished the season 5-1 with Gordon starting at running back. The main story this season was the emergence of redshirt Freshman TE Jeremiah Kendrick. QB Alexander Cassidy immediately formed a tight connection on the field with the star tight end and it lasted all season. Kendrick finished the regular season with 91 receptions, 1190 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2022. These massive numbers earned him three awards: C-USA Freshman of the Year, C-USA TE of the Year, and the Danny Patrick Award for National TE of the Year. Other noticeable players in 2022 include: OLB Khalil Cox (1st team C-USA) CB Carter Ragland (1st team C-USA) CB Abdul Yancey (2nd team C-USA) For 2023, rumors are swirling around that Southern Miss may make a trip in week 1 to USC and face the 2022 Semifinalists at the Coliseum, headed by coach @Jumbo. Southern Miss will return 20 of 22 starters and the OL play should be boosted by significant recruits at OL, including JUCO Star OT Saul Noriega.
  11. The Blaine "True American Hero" Gabbert one is my favorite by far.
  12. A great season for Auburn and @Rome. Well deserved. Congratulations!!
  13. Let me be the first to say good luck in the pros and that everyone in the CUSA is SO grateful he won’t be suiting up for the Owls next year. What a player!
  14. gg @stinsy - happy to bring the Hawaii Bowl trophy back to Hattiesburg!
