I know I should express shock, outrage and dismay over Larry Fedora’s decision not to suspend three key players from Southern Mississippi’s opener for their arrests for disorderly conduct – or at least a sarcastic response to this comment…
Fedora said the three players understood they made a “mistake,” and expressed regret for the incident.
… but, then again, the Golden Eagles open against South Carolina and these players kind of matter.
… Brown has been one of the Golden Eagles’ biggest weapons in his two seasons at Southern Miss. He was injured in the 2008 New Orleans Bowl, sustaining a compound leg fracture, but came back last season to catch 47 passes for 785 yards and nine touchdowns.
Morris made five starts for the Golden Eagles last season while Smith recorded 82 tackles as a starting outside linebacker.
I think I’ll settle for simultaneously shaking my head and clapping my hands as I watch the game and see one of them make a play.
