The Drive that Won Memphis the AAC Title

College football teams play 780 minutes in a 13-game season. For Memphis, the final 2:40 in a 16-13 edging of the Temple Owls was far more important than the other 777 minutes and six seconds the team played during the 2014 season.  Why? Because Memphis kicker Jake Elliot’s game-winning 31-yard field goal against the Owls saved the Tigers season, and when using hindsight, is the...

Memphis Tigers 2014 Season Report Card

Wait Till This Year. The marking slogan for the 2014 Memphis Tiger football season was a high risk, high reward one. For a team that had virtually nothing to be proud of over the last six plus seasons in football, telling people to wait till this year could have gone awfully wrong. What if Memphis stumbled through another 4-8 season? Telling people to wait for another disastrous...

BYU Football: Memphis Robbed of Chance to Celebrate Milestone

It only takes a few dumb decisions to turn a victory into a defeat. That must be how the Memphis Tigers felt Monday after they were robbed of the chance to celebrate their landmark victory over BYU. To be sure, there were dumb decisions made by Tigers and Cougars alike as the two teams erupted into a bar-style brawl that left multiple players bruised and bleeding, and both teams seething...

Video: Memphis, BYU Get Into Nasty Brawl Following Miami Beach Bowl

The Miami Beach Bowl between Memphis and BYU was easily the most entertaining contest we’ve seen so far this bowl season.

Watch Memphis tight end head-butt his teammates with no helmet

If there's one man excited for bowl season it's Memphis tight end Alan Cross. The junior was, let's just say, a wee bit excited for the Tigers' Miami Beach Bowl showdown with BYU to the point where he started headbutting his own teammates --€“ without a helmet on. This has got to hurt (h/t Reddit CFB): Wouldn't recommend trying that at home...

2015 NFL Draft: Miami Beach Bowl – BYU vs. Memphis

The BYU season started off hot, gathering top 25 honors and hopes for a season reminiscent of the Ty Detmer days. But all of that came to a crashing to earth when starting quarterback Taysum Hill was injured in the 5th game of the year and out for the remainder of the year. But the Cougars picked themselves up and were able to finish the year strong with a 8-4 record. Some players...

The Miami Beach Bowl Is Not A Pleasure Trip For BYU Or Memphis

Miami is — along with New Orleans — one of the great winter party destinations for American football fans. The city has served as the longtime host of the venerable Orange Bowl game, and it has also hosted 10 Super Bowls. Miami is a city made for postseason football, so it might be easy to think that the Brigham Young Cougars and Memphis Tigers want to live it up in South Florida...

Three Hits: Memphis fends off George Washington

RALEIGH, N.C. -- As 8-seed Memphis (24-9) entered its opening NCAA Tournament game, it was thought that George Washington (24-9), the 9-seed, was the tougher-minded, more resilient team.  But in the end, it was Memphis that came out as the more physical team, dominating the offensive glass early and setting the tone before hanging on for a 69-66 win.  1.

Missner's Manifesto: Declawing The Memphis Tigers
