The Southern Miss Golden Eagles are asking their fans to fill "The Rock" to the top for their first home game of the season under first year head coach Ellis Johnson this Saturday. That's right—FTTT—"Fill To The Top". Certainly they deserve it. The Golden Eagles are the reigning Conference USA Champions and won 12 games last year. Coach Ellis Johnson, a former highly respected assistant at Southern Miss has returned as Head Coach and expectations are high. USM officials list the capacity of the stadium as 36-thousand. The largest crowd ever was when they played Alcorn State in 2009 and 36,232 was the official attendance record. Wouldn't it be great to celebrate last year's championship season and Coach Johnson home debut with another record crowd?! South Mississippi's home team will be taking on conference rival East Carolina and the kick-off is slated for 2:30. Get there early and tailgate and let's support our team by FTTT…take "The Rock" and "Fill To The Top".
I'm Jim Cameron and I hope to see you there on Saturday.
