Tuesday morning our athletic director posted to Facebook my favorite quote about Southern Miss. It’s from Mickey Spagnola’s Clarion Ledger article on the Sunday morning after the upset win over Alabama in 1982. The win ended Bear Bryan’t 57-game home sinning streak, and it was Bear Bryant’s final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
“If you are going to war and if you get to pick first, choose Southern Mississippi. Always choose Southern Mississippi. No matter how hard you fight, these folks will fight harder.”
