This is a poorly coached team, of course stating the obvious. I could only watch about 2 minutes last night. Painful, very painful. I saw it in 20 years as an officer of Marines, and I see it now on the playing field of Southern Miss football. Good, strong leadership produces good, strong units. Confused, weak leadership produces confused, weak units.

The question of football leadership, or lack thereof is settled. The question is if the entire athletic program is headed down the same path, a result of weak leadership at the top. I have observed so many of my peers in the Marine Corps and other services take off their uniform, only to realize they were not strong leaders; rather others followed them out of respect for the uniform, fear of running afoul of the UCMJ, or out of curiosity to see how comical things would get. We shall see in the coming weeks if the Southern Miss athletic department has strong leadership. It is easy to boast of past accomplishments, but tomorrow is what matters.

Fix the cancer in Southern Miss athletics or remove it. Either will be better than what we are suffering now. The players deserve better. The community deserves better. The legacy of success deserves better.
