ESPN Ranks U of M at Bottom

comment

Okay, so this isn’t exactly breaking news: the Memphis Tigers football team is bad. Really bad. The only question up for debate is, to what extent do they stink?

ESPN, the arbiter of all things sports, has an opinion in the person of writer David Duffey. His “Bottom 10” column celebrates the badness of the worst 10 teams in college football each week. This week, he names Memphis the 7th worst team in the gridiron ranks, one spot worse than last week. Of course, that’s what a 1-6 record will get you: national mockery.

Memphis next faces the also pitiful Marshall Thundering Herd in what Duffey calls “The pillow fight of the week.”
