  1. Whether Memphis is part of Big 12 expansion plans or not, school officials are keeping their cards close to the vest. Last week, a delegation of Big 12 officials (which included commissioner Brett Yormark) reportedly toured campus as well as Memphis' athletic facilities, while also meeting with key city and university figures. The visit was reportedly part of the Big 12’s “due diligence” as it continued to explore the prospect of expanding. Yormark subsequently issued a statement to try to poke holes in the initial report. “I’ve never met with anyone at Memphis about adding them to the Big 12, nor have I been on campus,” he said. On Wednesday, when asked to address the validity of Yormark’s reported visit, Memphis president Bill Hardgrave declined. “Yeah, I’m not going to talk about any of that,” he told The Commercial Appeal. Memphis vice president and athletic director Laird Veatch also neither confirmed nor denied that any meetings took place. Memphis officials have made it clear in recent years how motivated they are to level-up from a conference affiliation perspective. The school is on the verge of embarking upon a massive renovation project for Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium. The plan is for $150-$200 million worth of work to begin shortly after the 2023 football season and have it completed by before the start of the 2025 season. read more: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/other/memphis-president-ad-react-to-latest-big-12-expansion-realignment-reports/ar-AA1czZUR

  3. Memphis football coach Ryan Silverfield is facing pressure from fans after the Tigers' three-game losing streak. There's also growing concern that his job status could be in question if the season continues to spiral. If the Tigers made a coaching change - and there's been no indication that will happen, yet - could they look further south for a potential replacement? On ESPN's College GameDay podcast this week, senior college football writer Pete Thamel suggested Jackson State coach Deion Sanders could be a candidate should the Tigers move on from Silverfield. read more: https://www.commercialappeal.com/story/sports/college/memphis-tigers/2022/10/27/memphis-football-deion-sanders-coaching-change-espn-ryan-silverfield/69597085007/

  8. Memphis beats BYU in the bowl! MIAMI (AP) — They battled for 60 minutes, then again for two overtimes and literally fought after the final play. And for Memphis, the end result was a win 76 years in the making. Paxton Lynch threw four touchdown passes and rushed for three more scores, Jake Elliott kicked a 54-yard field goal to end the first extra session and Memphis wasted a pair of double-digit leads before rallying to beat BYU 55-48 in the inaugural Miami Beach Bowl on Monday. "It wasn't always pretty," Memphis coach Justin Fuente said. No, but it was memorable — largely for the right reasons, though also for a scene that got out of hand at the end. read more: http://www.brownsvilleherald.com/sports/national/article_36e2ea84-8aac-11e4-b866-ebecf16cd6c4.html
  9. Do you ever wonder why schools that we were playing in the 70's have taken different routes to success. Each one has had AD's that could face problems and find an answer.They had a plan for the future (ie. goals). Look where we are currently. Being invited to a new conference (sbII), because we are near Dallas saving our bacon because the conference home base is there and there were no other teams that didn't have a dancing partner around!
  10. 1. Conference USA coaches and athletic directors met in Destin, Fla., Monday and, according to multiple sources, there is a strong movement to move the 2013 conference tournament from Memphis to Tulsa. Memphis is leaving for the Big East after next season and while it would make more economic sense to keep the event where it is, there isn't a lot of goodwill toward the Tigers to give them an added advantage in their final season in the conference. A decision on the tournament will be made next month. Read More: http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebasketballnation/post/_/id/59071/3-point-shot-c-usa-tourney-on-the-move
