The Fanbulance!

Posted By on Tue, Oct 5, 2010 at 9:01 AM

There are days when I wonder if the Tiger football program deserves fans like Tommy Vollmar. A former player himself (he was a member of the 1999 squad), Vollmar has taken tailgating up a notch this season, transforming what originally was a vehicle designed to save lives into "The Battle Cat."

You can find the Fanbulance at sections 260 and 261 of Tiger Lane, before, during, and after every Memphis home game.


"My tailgate team is an avid mix of alums and former players," says Vollmar, "who support the football team in every way we can. The Fanbulance is just one way in which we showcase our True Blue support."

Vollmar and his Fanbulance crew are involved in local youth football. And they're convinced the U of M — regardless of its record — is on the right path. "We're in it for the long haul," stresses Vollmar, "and Coach Porter is the right man for the job."
