Okay, so this isnt exactly breaking news: the Memphis Tigers football team is bad. Really bad. The only question up for debate is, to what extent do they stink?
ESPN, the arbiter of all things sports, has an opinion in the person of writer David Duffey. His Bottom 10 column celebrates the badness of the worst 10 teams in college football each week. This week, he names Memphis the 7th worst team in the gridiron ranks, one spot worse than last week. Of course, thats what a 1-6 record will get you: national mockery.
Memphis next faces the also pitiful Marshall Thundering Herd in what Duffey calls The pillow fight of the week.
That's how one gambling site describes the betting action on the Ole Miss-Memphis game. If Memphis wins by four or more (we say they win by at least 10), there could be a lot of Rebel fans with skinny wallets standing around the Grove Sunday night.
