    Petrino is on Southern Miss' short list

    This was told to me by a big time USM booster over lunch yesterday.

    If this happens, Lee County will go into a meltdown to melt down all meltdowns.

    would be a good job for him, no pressure which will let him rebuild his image.

    A place like Southern Miss might br perfect for BP. Winning would be much easier in Conf USA or MAC type places. He could win 6-8/yeard and be a hero.

    I agree, he needs this. Auburn would have high expectations and run him out faster if he wasn't successful.

    This guy is connected and said he felt the interest was mutual. He also said the school wasn't worried about him using USM as a stepping stone back to a BCS AQ team, saying straight up: "We're C-USA and we're kinda used to that, anyway."

    Btw- I am in agreement that the pressure would be relieved. But I suspect BP is going to get offers from places that can offer him more cash.

    Just how strong is this rumor? Could somebody please post pictures of USM's volleyball team?

    For the most part you are right though Ellis Johnson might disagree!

    Re: Petrino is on Southern Miss' short list

    I've heard that around town as well. Ellis has them so beat down this year that most anything/anyone would be a significant improvement. Just imagine this single-season swing: from 12-2 to 0-12. 24 game difference. Incredible! Related aside: consider these--Ellis' OC was a HS coach last year; the S/C coach was...wait for it...in real estate for a number of years immediately prior. So, yeah, a semi-competent coach--which Petrino is more than!--will be a huge improvement.

    Semi-related factoid: USM recently agreed to move next year's Nebraska to Nebraska, thereby pumping some badly needed $$ into the athletic dept.

    Interesting times around here...

    Haw!

    Seriously, here's a screenshot from their coaching Hot Board:



    Of course, the best thing you might learn from that is Bobby has a brother named Bobby.

    Awesome. The other nugget I got was seeing that Cignetti has his team in the playoffs. Hadn't kept up with him; but glad to see he's doing well.
