The Southern Miss Golden Eagles dropped to 5-12 tonight after an eleven point loss to Louisiana Tech. But the real winners were the 240 people who bought a delectable creation by the joint forces of heaven and hell …

Yup. A doughnut bacon cheeseburger. At 5-12, you have to find some way of getting fans into the building. And how many were sold?

Seems kinda low … especially when you combine the low low price of five bucks with the natural human curiosity to find out what it’s like to temporarily reside on death’s door.
The doughnut bacon cheeseburger was their “premium item of the game“, so it might not come back for a while. Too bad, but I’m sure the next home game will feature something else that’s equal parts delicious and frightening. But I’d say this needs to come back more often and it will become legendary.
