Three Thoughts on Memphis Tiger Football | Tiger Blue | Memphis News and Events | Memphis Flyer

memphisflyer.com — Since upsetting 6th-ranked Tennessee on November 9th, 1996 - 20th anniversary in a few short weeks - the Memphis Tigers are 3-26 against the SEC. By SEC, I mean Tennessee (0-7), Mississippi State (0-9), Arkansas (0-1), and Ole Miss (3-9). I've long contended that the U of M harms its football program (twice) by scheduling SEC foes.

memphisflyer.com — click to enlarge The baseball world will need some time to recover from the loss of Jose Fernandez. In a sport played on a diamond, Fernandez - killed in a boating accident early Sunday with two others - was a distinct jewel.

Tigers 77, Bowling Green 3 | Tiger Blue | Memphis News and Events | Memphis Flyer

memphisflyer.com — Ole Miss, here come the Tigers. Memphis coach Mike Norvell and his team can hardly be accused of looking a week ahead. Coming off a pair of lopsided wins (over SEMO of the FCS and Big 12 bottom-feeder Kansas), the Tigers tied a program record with 56 first-half points on their way to a school-record 77 and will enter next Saturday's showdown in Oxford with a spotless 3-0 record.

memphisflyer.com — The Tigers are 2-0, having run roughshod over an FCS team and the hapless Kansas Jayhawks. When have we seen this before? Why, just last year, so you're forgiven the sense of deja vu. Are there any distinctions we can make, though, about this year's start, relative to the 2015 version (beyond a bye week splitting the two wins this month)?

Tigers 43, Kansas 7 | Tiger Blue | Memphis News and Events | Memphis Flyer

memphisflyer.com — Rock, chalk, cake walk. There was irony in the Tigers' thorough man-handling of Kansas Saturday afternoon at the Liberty Bowl. The University of Memphis - along with virtually its entire fan base - continues to aspire admission into one of college football's elite "Power Five" conferences.

Flyer Fall Fashion | Cover Feature | Memphis News and Events | Memphis Flyer

memphisflyer.com — Just like the autumn weather, fall fashion brings change. And like the temperature drop, the new looks and styles of fall will be most welcome. Ironically, as our blazing summer temperatures finally cool, the colors of fall arrive to warm us up all over again.

Three Thoughts on Memphis Tiger Football | Tiger Blue | Memphis News and Events | Memphis Flyer

memphisflyer.com — Kansas. Hmmm. Interesting opponent this week. This is the school that, on the hardwood, broke the hearts of Memphians worldwide in 2008. Perhaps even more sensitive to the Bluff City touch these days, Kansas is a member of the "Power Five" conference that earlier this month summarily rejected the University of Memphis as a viable candidate for expansion.
