Editorial: New Era of Southern Miss Football

First of all, we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Jeff Bower on his induction into the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame, along with Jim Carmody, both former sucessful Southern Miss head football coaches.

They were preceeded by former USM baseball coach Hill Denson.

This Saturday, a new era begins with Golden Eagle Football as first-year head coach Larry Fedora leads the team onto the gridiron against the University of Louisana at Lafayette.

The stadium will have a new look with luxury corporate suites and the south end zone now enclosed with a seating section.

Expectations, excitement and electricity will be high, with coach Fedora's philospohy and bi-word being attack...always attack.

He has promised a wide-open, exciting brand of football, and WDAM is proud to be the media sponsor for this opening game, and we urge everyone out for the debut of this era of USM football.

Let's fill the refurbished stands and aid the Eagles in their attack by being the twelth man in the stands.

I'm Jim Cameron, and Ihope to see you at the game. Write and let us know what you think.
