While Larry Fedora has done a lot of good for the Southern Miss Golden Eagles' football program, most notably winning a Conference USA championship and ending Houston's perfect season, some people are a bit bitter about his decision to leave USM for the University of North Carolina. Before leaving for Honolulu and the 2011 Hawaii Bowl, Fedora showed up at a USM basketball game and spoke to the fans during halftime. Reactions were apparently mixed.
First, he stepped up to the mic and got booed. Fedora then mentioned that his team won a championship and stuff, remember that?!? This calmed down those who were displeased with his presence and his decision to go to UNC, apparently. From then on, it was all cheers, smiles and sunshine!
USM takes on the Nevada Wolfpack on Christmas Eve, and all will truly be forgiven if Fedora leaves his job with a win.
