Tigers vs. Texas A&M Pre-game Snark Party 

Hipster sports Web site Deadspin.com's Mitch Martin and Jay Busbee have a snarky preview of the Tigers-Aggies game today. A sample:

Mister, If You Don't Shut Up, We're Going To Kick One Hundred Percent Of Your Ass!

The University of Memphis was, until 1994, known as Memphis State. The university made the name change to bring a little gravitas and respect to an institution that had been slagged as "Tiger High." And so when Memphis fans see the continuing disrespect heaped upon their Tigers, well, it makes 'em mad enough to steal Dad's car, trench a few lawns and TP a few trees, is what it does ...

A&M doesn't get off any easier. Check it out.
