"It didn't take a scoreboard to tell the teams apart. Memphis wore tiger stripes on their backs. Texas wore tire tracks.

"The Longhorns had said they wanted to run with the big dogs and instead were run over in the fast lane by a tractor-trailer carrying a full load.

"Long before the 85-67 collision with top-seeded Memphis left nothing but skid marks Sunday afternoon, the air had been sucked out of the mostly-burnt-orange crowd of 32,798 at Reliant Stadium ..."

Is it wrong to want to read good things written about the Tigers in opponents' newspapers? Nah. So go read the Houston Chronicle's wrap-up of the Memphis-Texas game. It'll make you feel good.
