    “The real losers, of course, are the fans.”

    Kudos to the American for accurately describing the USM fanbase. It is good to see honesty in journalism in these troubled times.

    I agree 1000 percent! I hope Pete Boone reads your blog.

    Whenever there’s a slow news day in Hattiesburg, they drag out this dead horse and beat it some more.

    Ole Miss was in the market for a team to play a single game in Oxford. The writer should have asked the USM AD’s office whether it would have been willing to agree to that. Had the answer been “yes,” then the journalist would have had strong support for his argument. Had it been “no,” the writer could have informed the readership of the complexities involved. Either way, it would have offered a compelling editorial, rather than the mild rant that was published.

    The real losers are the one that try the hardest: an example at Texas Tech: An economics professor at Texas Tech said he
    had never failed a single student before but had, once,
    failed an entire class. That class had insisted that
    socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one
    would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said
    ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

    All grades would be averaged and everyone
    would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one
    would receive an A. After the first test the grades were
    averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard
    were upset and the students who studied little were happy.
    But, as the second test rolled around, the students who
    studied little had studied even less and the ones who
    studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they
    studied little. The second Test average was a D! No one was
    happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.

    The scores never increased as bickering,
    blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one
    would study for anyone else. All failed to their great
    surprise and the professor told them that socialism would
    ultimately fail because the harder to succeed the greater
    the reward but when a government takes all the reward away;
    no one will try or succeed.

    Thanks for your wisdom JB. I wonder if the people in Washington could understand the simplicity of your arguement if they read it.
