Budget Cuts at the University of Southern Mississippi (Revisited)
I believe that the elimination of the Latin, and Religion majors will come back to bite USM in the ass. Two of the professors that are listed to be fired (1 Latin professor, 1 Religion professor), I had the pleasure of being in their classes and learning from them and it would be a serious loss to the university to lose these two professors and lose these two majors, BUT HEY, we still have all of our sports going full throttle!
Speaking of which, after having countless mediocre seasons the football team looks as if they want to do better than just 7-6 or 8-5 this season. I think they are trying to justify the athletic department not getting their budget cut by trying to win more games this season...that's what they better do! I'm rooting for my Golden Eagles this year like every year, but having a good season will not justify the athletic department not getting its fair share of the budget cuts...having another mediocre season though should put them in the list as departments needing its budget cut!
