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. You would be underestimating my level of stubbornness. In fact, I have basically gone off the deep end and will lecture anyone who dares bring...

I was born a Louisville fan. I hate inherently hate Memphis. I hate the school, I hate the city, Elvis was a thief, and the Grizzlies should be playing in Louisville. This Saturday the Louisville Football Cardinals are playing the Memphis Tigers in what will be their first meeting on the gridiron as conference foes since 2004. The last time Memphis won the football contest...

Yet previous campaigns have been marred by slow starts and inconsistency. This was evident last year as Memphis, who went 31-5 during the regular season, failed to advance past the third round of the NCAA tournament. Does 5th...
Plenty of teams have been unveiling their jerseys in preparation for the upcoming football season, and the Memphis Tigers are the latest to do so. The jerseys themselves are nothing spectacular, but I love the tiger stripes on the pants and the helmets are fantastic. The chrome helmet with the tiger striping down the center and in the logo is absolutely outstanding. The blue...

It’s no secret that the last few years have been lean times for the Memphis Tigers football program. That tends to happen when a school is coming off a 4-8 season, which just so happens to mark their best record in five years. Overall, the Tigers are 9-39 since the beginning of 2009, and have just one bowl win since December of 2003. That’s definitely not good, but definitely...
