You really couldn't make this up . . .

Since Southern Miss last won a football game…

… 650 days have passed.

… we have celebrated Christmas twice.

… USM has lost 16 consecutive football games.

….USM has had three presidents, three athletic directors, two football coaches and been nearly blown away by one EF4 multiple-vortex wedge tornado (the king daddy of tornadoes).

… USM has allowed 636 points while scoring only 261 (an average of 40-16 if you are keeping score).

… USM has created only 15 opponents’ turnovers in 16 games, while committing a whopping 43. (That’s a minus 28 in turnovers if you are keeping score, and I know you are.)

… USM has played seven quarterbacks.

… Alabama has won 18 games and two national championships.

… the stock market has risen nearly 4,000 points (you needed a little good news didn’t you?)

So why am I putting all this out here today. Because, today, it ends.

I think.

    Could the solution be on the bench?
