Memphis Tigers: DBU??

Posted By on Sat, Nov 21, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Over the last 20 years, the Tiger football program has sent its share of defensive backs to the NFL. Ken Irvin, Jerome Woods, Reggie Howard, Mike McKenzie, Michael Stone, Idrees Bashir, and Brandon McDonald all disrupted passes in the Liberty Bowl before playing on Sundays. Certain followers of the program haved dubbed it “DBU.”

So what’s happened? Here’s a look at the yardage total accumulated by a few of the Tigers’ opposing quarterbacks this season.

Case Keenum
  • Case Keenum

• Dwight Dasher (MTSU): 231 yards
• Brett Hodges (UCF): 214
• Trevor Vittatoe (UTEP): 319
• Pat Pinkney (East Carolina): 216
• Jonathan Crompton (Tennessee): 331
• Joe Webb (UAB): 378

Things could get ugly this afternoon in Houston, where the Tigers’ secondary will be facing Cougar quarterback Case Keenum, the likely Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year. Through ten games, Keenum has averaged 419 yards through the air and thrown 31 touchdown passes with only six interceptions. DB-ugh.
