Go Tigers Go!

As we were loading up on the bus to head off to the Liberty Bowl this evening, we heard comments such as, “I haven’t been to a Tigers football game in X amount of years”. Tigers football has historically been a sport that’s been largely ignored by Memphis folks. With the exception of the Tennessee vs. Memphis game, Liberty Bowl stayed eerily empty for Memphis Tigers games. Tonight, though, we made a little bit of Tigers football history. 

We played against MTSU, a team we haven’t won against since 2008. We also packed in the Liberty Bowl at the largest number since the Tennessee game in 2006. New old Memphis Tigers fans are coming home and showing support for a team Justin Fuente’s been working with for the last three years. I’ve always been of the opinion that the third year is the charm for a team with a new coach and Justin Fuente has not disappointed.

We play Ole Miss next weekend. It’ll be a tough game, but I think our guys can pull it off. They really enjoyed having the large crowd tonight as it gave them a boost of confidence. As of Friday, only 30 tickets were left in the UofM ticket office for the game next weekend. We won’t be able to get tickets, but we’ll be rooting for the Tigers somewhere around town. Go Tigers go!!
Nice-lookin’ crowd!

Memphis Tiger fans – you just can’t take us out in public. 😀
