And the Tigers expect to make the rankings. The players are saying that.

By reputation, Navy was the more efficient team. The team that didn’t make many mistakes and didn’t commit many penalties.

That was a main reason that Navy was undefeated and the No. 24 team in the country when the Midshipmen lined up against the University of Memphis Saturday, Oct. 14, at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

15. Tigers Could Face New Wrinkle In Navy’s Always-Challenging Offense -

20. After 40-13 Loss at UCF, Memphis Tigers Embrace a Put-up or Shut-up Mentality -

Had the University of Memphis football team gone into Orlando last Saturday and defeated UCF, the Tigers would have been 4-0 and likely moved into the Top 25. In fact UCF (3-0) did slide into the 25th spot in the Associated Press poll after giving Memphis a 40-13 beatdown.

21. Tigers Face Stern Test at UCF For Rescheduled Game -

The Germantown Performing Arts Center has plans for an open-air performance center to be called “The Grove at GPAC” – the latest consideration in what is becoming a vibrant discussion about the capacity for concerts within Shelby County.

31. Tigers Deliver Victory in Wind and Rain -

Tigers kick returner Tony Pollard let the ball settle into his hands. Do not take that part for granted. This was at the start of the second half Thursday night at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. And not to say there was a lot of water, but at one point the Cajun Navy probably could have sailed areas of the stadium concourse.

32. Raising The Ceiling -

Here’s the thing about expectations: You either embrace them, turning them into some divine combination of daily bread and rocket fuel, or they crush you.

There is no middle ground. Not when the statistical mid-point – a .500 season – would be an undisputed failure.

33. Tigers Turn Toward Season-Opener Thursday -

For a month, the University of Memphis football team has been practicing in anticipation of the season-opener Thursday, Aug. 31, at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium vs. Louisiana-Monroe.

47. Last Word: Murphy's, Mount Arlington in Midtown and Surgery Open House -

50. Last Word: No More Lottery Balls, The Voucher Bill Advances and UCLA -

Spring is in the air, which can only mean one thing – the Overton Park Greensward controversy is back on.

51. Memphis Football Profile Growing, Norvell Says -

The biggest brand on the 2017 University of Memphis football schedule is UCLA. The Bruins come to Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on Sept. 16. And as a name brand, it’s an opportunity for the Tigers with recruits.

52. Memphis a ‘Football School’ In Fuente-Norvell Era -

The first time Darrell Dickey was an assistant coach at the University of Memphis, way back in 1986, current head coach Mike Norvell was 5 years old.

So it is not an exaggeration to say that it has taken a lifetime for Tiger football to get where it is today. 

53. Next Season’s Memphis Tigers Defense Begins Building Up Now -

55. Tubby Smith and Tigers Not Fretting the Style Points -

In a challenging season with too few legitimate Division 1 players for the rotation and nobody tall enough to truly count as a rim protector, coach Tubby Smith would not call the Tigers’ 57-50 victory over East Carolina last weekend “ugly.” No matter that it was the perfect word – at least under other circumstances.

56. Dickey Promoted to Tigers’ Offensive Coordinator -

University of Memphis head coach Mike Norvell has announced three staff promotions, including elevating Darrell Dickey to offensive coordinator.

60. New Coaches Highlight Past Year in Memphis Sports -

As always, you can categorize the sports year by the wins and losses.

61. Western Kentucky Rolls Past Tigers in Bowl Game -

The Western Kentucky offense was billed as explosive and it proved to be true as the Hilltoppers defeated the University of Memphis 51-31 in the Boca Raton Bowl on Tuesday, Dec. 20.

65. Memphis Football Bigger Than One Coach Or QB -

The bad news for University of Memphis football fans? The Tigers’ bowl destination is a really, really long drive.

70. SEC Grades: ‘A’ for Alabama; UT, Ole Miss Should Be Grounded -

With a thrilling 48-44 victory over then-No. 20 Houston the day after Thanksgiving, Mike Norvell became the only first-year University of Memphis coach to win eight games.

74. Memphis Tigers’ Jake Elliott Doesn’t Just Get His Kicks From Field Goals -

While senior Tigers placekicker Jake Elliott has been a so-called model of consistency – he’s 184-of-184 on point-after attempts – the designation is a bit limiting.

Elliott, after all, just earned yet another Special Teams Player of the Week honor. The American Athletic Conference recognized the University of Memphis kicker after he went 3-of-3 in field goals with making all six PATs in a 51-7 win over SMU.

75. Brick by Brick, UT’s Season Falling From Rocky Top -

When Butch Jones arrived at Tennessee, he adopted a “brick-by-brick” mantra for describing the building of the Vols program. And the bricks did appear to be getting stacked higher: five wins in 2013, seven wins the next year, and nine last season.

76. Norvell, Tigers Look to Flip the Script at SMU Saturday -

Redshirt junior receiver Anthony Miller had a record-setting day with 12 catches for 250 receiving yards. But with the University of Memphis suffering a second straight defeat last Saturday, 59-30 to Tulsa at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, he hasn’t spent much time replaying the good moments.

77. Tulsa Running Game Too Much for Memphis -

79. Bama Best, Auburn on the Rise, and Houston a Mere Pretender -

The first College Football Playoff rankings come out on Nov. 3, after Week 9. The final ranking is issued on Dec. 6. After eight weeks, we don’t know what the four-team playoff will look like, but we have a pretty good idea what it won’t look like.

80. As Big 12 Stands Pat, AAC Looks To Grow Brand -

It wasn’t difficult to figure out why the Big 12 – or the Confused 10, if you prefer – started down the road of exploring expansion.

It turned out to be a road to nowhere – a twisting, turning road with many stops to ask for directions – and finally the league announced on Monday, Oct. 17, that it would, in fact, not expand.

81. AAC West Division Could be at Stake as 5-1 Tigers go on the Road to Face No. 24 Navy -

82. Real Life Can Wait: Former Tiger Alan Cross Walks On in the NFL -

The Cross family’s living room in Millington is something of a mini-museum. A living testament, really, to what can happen when someone lives out the clichés – keep trying, never quit, believe in yourself – and decides the best way to deal with doubters is to figuratively head-butt them.

85. Can Tigers Duplicate Their 2015 Upset of Ole Miss? -

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze, predictably, is saying that he won’t use revenge as a main motivator.

86. DeAngelo Made in Memphis, Outlasting Them All in NFL -

He has belonged to the NFL for a long time now, if you want to think of DeAngelo Williams that way, and truth is you’re probably divided on that. For he’ll always belong to the University of Memphis first, on that much we can agree.

87. Memphis Offensive Line Still a Work in Progress -

The University of Memphis football team has won the first two games under new head coach Mike Norvell and the cumulative tally in those wins over Southeast Missouri and Kansas is 78-24.

88. Memphis Running Game Must Improve, Ole Miss Seeks 3rd Win Over Bama -

On the plus side, the University of Memphis was not upset and the 35-17 victory over Southeast Missouri State was never in doubt. There was never that moment when one feared this would become what happened to Mississippi State (losing to South Alabama the opening weekend) or almost happened to Tennessee (pushed to overtime by Appalachian State).

89. The Week Ahead: September 12-18 -

Happy Monday, Memphis! There’s plenty of celebrating going on in the Bluff City this week, from COGIC’s annual Founder’s Celebration to the Cooper-Young Festival and The Peabody’s birthday bash. Check out details on those and other happenings to keep on your radar this week…

One spot behind Wisconsin and just ahead of Kentucky, 44th nationally. That’s where scout.com has the University of Memphis in its recruiting rankings for the class of 2017.

100. Memphis Tigers get Commitment from 4-Star Offensive Lineman -

Four-star offensive tackle Obinna Eze has bypassed offers from multiple SEC schools, including Alabama, Florida and LSU, to commit to the University of Memphis, according to Memphis.247sports.com.
