CHARLOTTE (1-9, 1-5 Conference USA) at SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI (6-4, 4-2)

M.M. Roberts Stadium, Hattiesburg, Miss., 3 p.m.

The 49ers have outscored their past five opponents 42-34 after halftime but have put themselves in an early hole most weeks. Southern Miss remains in the chase for the Western Division title. QB Kwandra Griggs threw for 331 yards last week against Rice.

Not sure where Steve Lyttle gets his info. First he didn't know Oklahoma State hoopster Jeffrey Carroll had been suspended (FWIW, he's been reinstated and will play Monday vs Texas A&M) and now he doesn't know that North Texas has already won the C-USA West Division in football. Hmm...

Brad Lambert could make a statement that neither him nor the kids have checked out. He could save his job with a win at USM.  Because next week FAU will step on our throat.

Personally, listening to his press conf this week, he looks on auto pilot.  Make an appearance, collect next paycheck.

If he is checked out this gets ugly.  40 point loss.  At least last week they had 13 days of being a winner to help feel good.

From Southern Miss beatwriter Pat Magee of the Sun Herald of Biloxi:

Southern Miss will likely be without its main run stuffer in the middle in the first half. Redshirt senior defensive tackle Draper Riley is expected to sit the first two quarters after being ejected in the second half at Rice last week. The 6-foot-4, 305-pound lineman has 28 tackles this season.

BTW, like the Observer, the Sun Herald is a McClatchy newspaper, so I expect to see Magee's byline in Sunday's Big O.

If you're not one of the big boys, it's getting hard to justify football. 

Sometimes I wonder if we'd be better off in FCS.  I know that makes some of you nauseous, but part of me would rather be JMU than Troy.

One thing I learned from our History program (big shouts to classmate JFicket) is that you can't judge a past decision from additional information that you know now. I still think that with the information we knew at the time regarding conference realignment, etc. the decision to go for CUSA was the right decision.


yes and no.  Let me politely explain the no part.  In the early 2000s, many schools knew football was the future tide.  We didn't.  The good CUSA schools conspired to leave the schools like UNCC that looked at football as the devil and left to reform the Big East.  I will never forget, a golf outing at Rocky River and Mike Hummer sitting in my cart, Judy grabs a bull horn to thank everyone stupid enough for coming.  Her lecture was how all those Big East football schools were basically nuts and the basketball only A10 was the future.  From that day, we haven't accomplished jack.  Today Memphis, UL, Cincy, Hou, USF have all been ranked top 20 in CFB, hell top 5.  ADs now require some business savvy and see a trend.  Then again, we are talking about a person who made a youtube video last year upset Twitter tagged her at a soccer game, claiming its nobodys business where SHE IS....

Charlotte at Southern Miss (Southern Miss -17, 3:00 PM ET, CUSA TV)

The Golden Eagles were embarrassed at home by Charlotte last year. I think they pour it on the 49ers to make amends for it.

So ever since Judy talked up V-Ball, they went in the toilet.   :'(

Happened with women's basketball as well. She forced Brad Lambert to talk about them on the signing day radio show and then they proceeded to go into the tank.
