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.

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!

I like this. yes colleges sell the dream of the league and everyone thinks they have a shot but look at the stats. there needs to be some encouragement for the MAJORITY of these fools who will not be professional athletes, so that they actually use their degrees and hey, maybe even love their career post-grad!

its possible fellas. I think this is a good thing
