    Southern Miss not Bad

    Larry seems to have Southern Miss moving the right direction. They have two losses, each by 10 or less. One @Bradley and one @Alabama. They just beat Auburn. It will be interesting to see how they do against Memphis. Memphis is the obvious favorite to win the conference but Southern Miss looks like the second best team. Yeah, I know C-USA is a weak conference.

    Re: Southern Miss not Bad

    They haven't played anyone good at all except Alabama and Southern Miss. Auburn isn't very good this year, but that is a pretty good win. Unless they run the table or something I don't see them as a tourney team.

    Re: Southern Miss not Bad

    C-USA isn't a great league outside of Memphis (ever since Marquette, L-ville, DePaul and Cinci left). But it might be the type of league that allows LE to get a job at another school down the road if he so chooses. Winning at Southern Miss in basketball would be an impressive feat...doesn't have to beat Memphis every year...but if he contends for the top of that league each year...then schools will want him again! Good for him! If he has faced his demons and learned from them...he deserves the best opportunities out there!

    Whoops. I meant Alabama and Bradley, of course.

    Southern Miss is coming up on their second game against Savannah State.

    Re: Southern Miss not Bad

    I remember he had Iowa St 10-2 or maybe even 10-1 Haluska's freshman year and we didn't even make the NCAA's and was like the 9th seed in the Big 12 tourney. :(

    I see a similar fate for Southern Miss this season. Although I'd love to see us make the NIT and get a chance to play ole Larry again. This will probably be our last season not in the NCAA's for awhile so it might be only chance.

    Lager Larry scheduled every cupcake he could before conference play. Sporting News even awarded him the "Cupcake award"

    Re: Southern Miss not Bad

    Something also somewhat funny is that they are 10-2, and their strength of schedule doesn't even look that bad on the RPI... Until I notice that according to the RPI they are only 6-2. Four of the teams they have played aren't even division 1 so they don't factor into the RPI formula. We'll see how good we are at the end of the season.

    Re: Southern Miss not Bad

    Either way it seems he has got the team heading in the right direction. They don't have a senior on the roster, and have only 3 juniors which they only average about 15 points/game combined.

    Best of luck to Larry.

    Re: Southern Miss not Bad

    I wish Larry well and I hope his team does well so he eventually gets back to a major school. That guy could coach and I'm still a little bitter on how things went down when he got fired at ISU.

    The reason they do not have upper classman is because Larry ran off like 2-3 players, similar to what he had done at ISU.

    Re: Southern Miss not Bad

    So, I'm guessing today's loss to Savannah State won't help their RPI any.
