Ballerific Sports: University of Southern Mississippi Head Coach Buys Senior Players New Suits

University of Southern Mississippi college football team held the longest losing streak (23 games) in college football. The team beat UAB in their rivalry game this season and finished with a record of 1-11. Head coach Todd Monken awarded his senior players with new suits to wear for job interviews at their football banquet. Some of these guys may get drafted, but majority of them will be new faces in the job industry. This is a great gesture of Coach Monken and it is not a violation of NCAA rules.

Oh wow, I don't know how to feel. I would be offended. Firstly, I think colleges sell their players that dream that they could make it to the league through hardwork and determination, but they know everybody is not built for that life. They baby them and treat them like slaves up until their career is over.Then what? Maybe they should prep them during their first few years at college so they'll have a backup plan and not just simply use and abuse them for their talent and not have nothing to do with them once they've "served" their purpose. Just my thoughts.

I come from a basketball family.  Many schools do abuse and treat their players poorly especially when they are done playing. BUT there are many schools who like Vanderbilt, duke, unc, etc that educate their boys and get make sure they get their degree as well as help them find jobs.

 

I think buying them a suit was a great gesture!
