How many bowl games in school history? How many by Bower


Well, yeah, Bower made more bowl games. There are are 30 something bowl games now. He was the coach when CUSA was formed and that made it a lot easier to make a bowl. Look at USM's last six coach's win%. (before Johnson)

Underwood 492
Collins 613
Carmody 561
Hallman 676
Bower 589
Fedora 641

Bower didn't invent winning at USM.

You don't think some of the other coaches would have won a conference championship if they had been in a conference? I'm not knocking Bower. He was a good coach, but he wasn't the first good coach at USM.

Yeah Bower took USM to bowl games but when you only win 6 or 7 games every year it gets old. I guess since Alabama is so good Saban built that program didn't he? Since there wasn't any good coaches at Alabama before him.

Rumor on our EaglePost board is that Petrino is desperate in getting back into CFB and money is not a issue. They also said he has expressed interest in our job.

Don't know if this is true or not but I still think BP ends up at Auburn

Kinda makes sense. Southern Miss gave Larry Eustachy a chance for a comeback. They hire Petrino, he doesn't go on any motorcycle rides with young women, he can coach an SEC school in 3 years.

I'm still half convinced Brett Favre gets the job.

Bring Back Bower. Favre can be OC since he is still learning.
