2020

Southern Miss is one of the most consistent programs in college football; a losing season is an anomaly. You can blame COVID for some of their issues, but the truth is it was going to be an off year. Young team, new coach and all. They weren’t bad on either side of the ball, but they were’t good, either.

2021

The Eagles won’t be 3-7 bad in 2021, but there are just too many holes to think conference title. The talent is there; the skill positions are loaded, the O line should be better, and the D will be improved. The real question… and what will determine how successful they are… is how quickly this young group comes together.

If Things Go Well

9-3

The talent is there. The first 3 games are all games the Golden Eagles will be heavily favored, giving them a chance to iron out the wrinkles. That won’t help against ‘Bama, of course, but if the pieces come together, Southern Miss will be back competing for a conference title.

If They Don’t

5-7

If the O line or D struggle, it will be an average year. If they both do, it will look like 2020.

Prediction

7-5

This is a team that is built to win in this conference. There’s too much talent for them to fall on their face, but the Eagles are a year away at least. Returning to the post season is likely.
