Re: “Ole Miss 85, Tigers 77

Sorry we lost.

Gtech was crushed by Tennessee though.

Re: “Ole Miss 85, Tigers 77

Oh well. I did pick this as a loss looking at the schedule before the season started. But foul trouble will plague this team. They have to play smarter.

Re: “Tiger Football: The Rising Continues

You are right on the money, OakTree. I knew things were going well, and I knew some of the stats, but not all of the ones listed here. It just confirms my thought that we made the best hire we could have hoped for in Coach Norvell...and the future is DEFINITELY bright in Tiger Town.

Re: “Mike Conley Suffers Back Fracture, Expected to Miss 6 Weeks

I have to assume at this point that Brandan Wright is the guy who just keeps calling in sick to see how long the company will continue to pay him for not working.

I don't think he ever intends to play again, and I don't think he's really hurt. I think he just likes collecting a check and uses injuries that can't be quantified as an excuse to sit.

Conley's loss, on the other hand, basically means the Grizzlies will be lucky to hang around and be near the playoff picture by the time he gets back. Maybe they can squeak in as an 8 or 7 seed. I just hope somehow that the Clippers end up on the other end of that if it works out, so that we can make a run at them (hopefully with a full complement of players though).

Re: “Mike Conley Suffers Back Fracture, Expected to Miss 6 Weeks

I must agree with kaye. Have you ever notice how nice the Grizzlies bench smells.... I mean the guys who seldom play, not the actual seating.

Needs some traction and megadose vitamin D. He'll be alright.
Let the healing begin...

Re: “Mike Conley Suffers Back Fracture, Expected to Miss 6 Weeks

Truth is never negative.

However, labeling news that is true but that you don't like as negative so you can ignore it is really, really stupid.

A positive outlook ain't gonna fix a broken back, bruh.

Re: “Hornets 104, Grizzlies 85: Everybody('s) Hurts

With three games in the next four days, I'm already worried about tomorrow's game at Toronto. It has the feel of a 'sit everybody and take your whuppin' game. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Re: “Tiger Football: The Rising Continues

Wow. I didn't know a lot of those stats. Looks even more impressive when you line them up like that, Frank. You can get a sense for where we are with just the on field presence at games. But to fully take it in, you need the numbers. And those are some serious numbers.

Re: “Tigers 100, Iowa 92

I can't complain on their effort, I just wish they had won on Friday so we could have seen how they handled a team like Virginia. Win or lose it would have been a good RPI on a neutral court against a top 10 team.

Re: “Tigers 48, #18 Houston 44

Forget about bowl games that often pick teams they feel can bring in the most tourists. The anointed powers that be of the so-called big 5 conferences should be challenged in the courts. Sure I'm biased toward Memphis, but Houston and Navy could probably have beaten about two thirds of the so-called elite 5 conference teams over the past few years. Even outstanding non-elite programs cannot often get the elite New Year Day bowls based on the "strength of schedule" snafu. Yep, Western Michigan with a perfect record as of this writing is going to get screwed.

I am just not making this rant as a sports fan and an alumni at Memphis. This injustice costs the so-called non-elite universities millions of dollars per year in TV revenue and other losses.

What we need is a college football playoff like there is in college basketball and then have an undisputed #1 team at the end of the season.

How we can still have this kind of injustice going unchallenged in almost 2017 astounds me. (full disclosure: I also hold a Master's from an SEC university)

Re: “Giving Thanks for Sporting Events of 2016

Is it ok if we admit a little sheepishly that we're thankful for you too, Frank?
Here's a toast to all them what went before us... salud!
