As we were loading up on the bus to head off to the Liberty Bowl this evening, we heard comments such as, "I haven't been to a Tigers football game in X amount of years". Tigers football has historically been a sport that's been largely ignored by Memphis folks. With the exception of the Tennessee vs. Memphis game, Liberty Bowl stayed eerily empty for Memphis Tigers games. Tonight, though, we made a little bit of Tigers football history.
We play Ole Miss next weekend. It'll be a tough game, but I think our guys can pull it off. They really enjoyed having the large crowd tonight as it gave them a boost of confidence. As of Friday, only 30 tickets were left in the UofM ticket office for the game next weekend. We won't be able to get tickets, but we'll be rooting for the Tigers somewhere around town. Go Tigers go!!
|Memphis Tiger fans - you just can't take us out in public. :D|
