Q&A with USM's Corky Palmer

HATTIESBURG — Southern Miss baseball coach Corky Palmer heads into his 10th season at the helm with expectations as high as ever for the Golden Eagles. Palmer and his staff have been putting the team, including 11 signees, through its paces this fall at revamped Taylor Park.

Q: Five straight NCAA Tournament appearances, but folks are waiting to see the program take the next step. Could this be the season?

A: "I would say 50 percent are happy with what we've done in five years and are proud. The other 50 are ready to go that next step, but no moreso than the staff and the players.

"The kids talk about it, and we need to push forward. There's a lot of expectations."
