A Memo To Memphis: Potential Should Trump Josh Pastner’s Current Woes

The mean streets of Twitter had some fun at the expense of Memphis Tigers coach Josh Pastner recently. Terms like “Pastner’d” were used and everyone had a solid giggle. The attempts at humor had a lot to do with a growing thought that the young coach isn’t exactly brilliant drawing up the X-and-Os and the fact that Memphis’ last possession against Tulsa on Saturday night...

Vine: Memphis’ Shaq Goodwin Caught An Off-The-Backboard Alley-Oop

Take a look: The Tigers have produced a few highlight-reel dunks this season. This...

Video: UConn Women Rout Memphis 87-24 on Senior Day

Senior Day is always an emotional time for the UConn women’s basketball team. It’s the end of a particular era for members of the senior class. And it’s the last regular season game they’ll ever play at Gampel Pavilion. One thing you have to watch out for is a letdown. It has happened before. But not this time.

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. Unfortunately, the way it ended will be talked about for all of the wrong reasons.  Seconds after the Tigers iced the game on an interception in double overtime, multiple fights broke out on the field. Numerous players on both teams took swings at one another...

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...

Memphis Can Secure Small Share of AAC Title with Win vs. UConn

It is borderline unfathomable what could take place on Saturday: the Memphis Tigers could win the American Athletic Conference Title. No, not in basketball. In football. Memphis has always been a basketball school in a basketball city. Ever since the Grizzlies came to town, the city has nicknamed itself “Hoop City,” and rightfully so.

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

(Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports) Since writing about how much I hate college basketball polls last year, you might expect that I would have become tired of charging that particular windmill and realize that the polls aren’t going away.
