College football is an injustice. There should be playoffs. Let's face it, teams are ranked by what conference they are in, not their performance on the field.
Haven't got to worry about the SEC schools playing the Tigers. Ole Miss is trying to buy out the return game in Memphis in 2019, Arkansas still owes us a home game from a breached contract from the 90's they refuse to honor, we had a couple of games scheduled with Tennessee a couple of years ago that they keep moving back, Tigers were supposed to open with Missouri last season but Mizzou pulled a Tennessee and moved it into the future. Vanderbilt won't even return the athletic department's calls. It seems everyone wants to play the Larry Porter Tigers, but roll out the Fuente/Norvell Tigers and it's suddenly 'let's play in a few years'.
I'd be surprised if tigger high scores 10 points. i see 41-7. Get the stretchers ready.
Yeah, that math needs some explanation, Pdugan.
I really think Memphis is going to come away with a WIN...By how much...I don't know, but one thing I do know is Memphis is not going to shy away from the competition...Secondly; I think the SEC and especially the Big XII is vastly overrated...IMHO
1996 Memphis v Tennessee. Did that not count as a win?
Beat Ole Miss
How can you filter a quote if a quote is obtained straight from the source? Will all non Grind City Media people be banned from the locker room after games? After practice? I feel this concern somewhat valid but is way over blown. The NBA has NBATV. It's run by TNT. That seems to be working out fine. NBATV's existence doesn't prevent TNT and other media outlets from reporting on and being critical of the NBA. How is this situation in Memphis any different?
Oak, this is exactly the sort of nonproductive unapproved newspeak that Grizz Nation copyrighted media content is designed to prevent.
Nonsense. Oceania has the tallest and most robust center.
And their forwards are absolute brutes.
The Grizz are sure to win the playoffs against Eastasia this year!
Looking forward to the season, but I am concerned by the Grizzlies' Grind City Media...seems like we have plenty of media reporting on the grizz already. I guess this way they can more carefully control any Grizzlies narratives that pop up, also by filtering any player quotes, management can better control what players say to the media. So rather than Grind City media, it should be called Grind City PR. Every recent announcement has been made via twitter or the website, so they already bypass the media. It is a bit too corporate of an approach for me and Memphis, I believe it will quickly be off-putting to both fans and especially, reporters from other, actual media outlets.
Hopefully we'll be catching Ole Miss at a good time, in between games against Georgia and Arkansas. If I'm Ole Miss, I wouldn't even worry about Memphis. Go ahead and coast this week in your game prep Rebs.
Writing your own story so you can control the narrative is NOT journalism, sorry. I think the public will see pretty quickly that this is PR and not reporting.
Yet another dismaying example of how bad things have gotten in print journalism: A part-time gig as a local sports radio talk show host is apparently more lucrative and maybe just all around better these days than a full-time position as an established newspaper reporter. Definitely wasn't the case 20-30 years ago. My have times have changed.
Good luck Jason! I know your dad is proud.
Thomas Bates not nitpicking but I'm sure you meant in due time.
