Yet to come close after three games, this coach is hungry for a win, possibly smelling an upset.

His eyes light up when Southern Mississippi football coach Ellis Johnson discusses the upcoming game against the University of Louisville in Hattiesburg this weekend.  He marvels over the 75% passing success of UofL’s Teddy Bridgewater.  But he practically salivates about all the freshmen and sophomores playing Louisville, clearly thinking his team has a shot.

Johnson sees the UofL game as a great challenge and a great opportunity that could provide great rewards.
