Sunday morning brought tragic news to the Southern Mississippi football program, with a report that three players have been shot and hospitalized, listed in critical condition.  WDAM, a local television station in Mississippi, is reporting that three players were shot at Remington's Hunt Club in Hattiesburg early Sunday morning.  The altercation took place around 1:20 a.m. outside the club where one person opened fire, injuring three.  While Southern Miss has declined to comment for the moment, sources have confirmed to the station that the victims are USM players, and they are in critical condition.  Head coach Larry Fedora, staff, and team members have all been seen at the hospital since early Sunday morning.  Local authorities have not made any arrests, and the investigation is ongoing.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, we will continue to update this story as it develops.

Report: Three USM football players shot

Redskin 81 HOF:
These young athletes, macho by nature and training, were at a bar at closing time, pissed off the wrong redneck Mississippi guy, probably an Ole Miss fan, who knew he could not win in a physical confrontation, was drunk and got his gun. 
Hmm. Where to begin?  First, I don't know if you can categorize any Ole Miss guy as a redneck, as that is a stereotype ordinarily reserved for MSU students.   Secondly, I find it hard to believe that all the hardcore gun toting frat guys from Ole Miss out on a Saturday night looking for a shooting would be found in Hattiesburg at 1:20am.   That's at least 4.5 hours south of campus.   
And hopefully no rational person would agree on anything other than you are a stereotyping d-bag who should focus on his miserable NFL team and washed up has-been QB.

Bottom line:  shooting someone is never justiified.

I don't care what happened.  All I care is that the young men recover and their families don't have to go through too much emotional pain.

God help them.

Report: Three USM football players shot

At no point in his post did INtoHI place blame or fault. he simply said had a curfew been imposed then these young men would not have been out at a time in the morning when bad things happen. Also nowhere in the article does it say anyone shot into a crowd. It says that one person opened fire. If you think they were random victims then you are pretty naive. These young athletes, macho by nature and training, were at a bar at closing time, pissed off the wrong redneck Mississippi guy, probably an Ole Miss fan, who knew he could not win in a physical confrontation, was drunk and got his gun. It happens every Saturday night, in many cities. It is tragic and certainly these young men did not deserve to be shot no matter what they did. The person responsible will be caught as there were obviously many witnesses, and hopefully be convicted and go away for a long time.

Of course I was not there but a rational person would agree my guess as to what happened is closer than a random shooting in to a crowd where the only victims were three football players out too late at night.

Again, nobody is saying they didn't have every right to be there, but if there was a curfew, code of conduct, whatever you want to call it associated with the players, these young men would be wathing the NFL right now instead of fighting for their lives...

INtoHI, what world do live in where you blame the victims?? So if they were shot at 10:59 then its not their fault??  You have got to be kidding me... Home by 11PM when you are under 25??  Teams have curfews the night before the games but other than that they can live a normal life as normal students.... Teammates out with each having fun is nothing wrong...  This was not an altercation, this was a moron shooting into a crowd...

This might be hard for someone with a mentality like you but try blaming the idiot doing the shooting...

Regardless of age, everyone should be alert of their surroundings.  These three were together, out having a good time, met up with wrong crowd, things are said and BANG BANG! Thats the scenario PERIOD!  Instituting a curfew will not work even mandated across the entire campus.  Everyone has a moral compass and we know young adults as well as old still have conflicts with doing what is right or wrong.  This is a tragedy and prayers for a recovery are warranted.

Nothing good happens after 1:00am.  We know this.  Coaches know this.  And yet, here we are....another altercation that could've been prevented if only a curfew existed.

I'm sorry, but most young men under the age of 25 (especially the athletes that aren't intellectually gifted) really do need to be treated like 15 year-olds.  Be home by 11:00pm.  It's that simple.
