UTM 20 Memphis 17
My Alma mater with a win.

You can't be shocked by this though right?
Shouldn't that title be "New all time low for University of Memphis State University football"?
Not shocked at all- but if being a Tiger fan is not already embarrasing enough!
From '01-'05 MTSU went 3-0 vs Vandy. I grew up in the 'Boro and was proud of MTSU. Not surprised but proud. Pretty sure UTM will have sililar results if they play Memphis 3 times.
Please don't bring up the fact that MTSU just lost their home opener to McNeese State - didn't even know they had a football team.
McNeese is a really good FCS program that runs an old school offense that's tough to stop some years.

just one more reason to give it away to the state of Mississippi.
We don't want it. Y'all can keep it.
UTM kicked me our of school for "lack of academic progress" and Tiger High is about to give me a Ph.D. Says all you need to know about the two schools... Way to go Skyhawks!
Are you saying that UTM is more academically rigorous than Memphis University? I'm only asking b/c I'm a UTM alum. Either way, it was funny to see the 'lil Tigers get beat by the Skyhawks! (Probably the biggest win in UTM's history; shows you how much of a football pedigree we lack)
It's funny without Memphis Tennessee would be financially on the same level as Mississippi and Alabama. I'm always amazed as to how you guys hate Memphis until it comes time to recruit Memphians. Be careful not to let your racism show too much.
I said it in jest. I went to UTM as a freshman in '89 and spent more time in Cadillac's and frat houses than I did in class. After a year UTM sent me ( and my full ride scholarship) packing. I ended up going to JUCO and eventually dropping out of school. Spent a year in a manufacturing plant and that was truly the best education I ever received. Made me decide to get serious about school and my life. That is when I returned to school and have received both my B.S. and M.S. from Memphis and am completing my Ph.D. now. Memphis has provided me with an excellent education, however I would have received just as good of an education at UTM if I had put forth the effort. With that being said, I have had several friends that played football, baseball, and golf at U of M and am a very close relative of someone very high up in U of M athletic department (he is a UTK grad BTW), however I cannot ever find myself rooting for U of M because of their arrogant basketball fans.

Who said anything about race?
If you say anything bad about Memphis- race always gets brought up. I enjoy the city a lot!

Oh believe me, I know. I just get sick of it always being brought up. Memphis could be a great town if it could just get over it's racial issues that cloud everything here. The thing is, my observation has been that most people of all races are sick of it, it's just a few that profit from the slander that continue to bring it up.
I love the city of Memphis and love the University from an academic standpoint. In fact, I would love to live in downtown Memphis somewhere close to the trolley line. I would be eating some of the best food in America nightly and enjoying great entertainment. I would still choose to root for the Big Orange and drive east weekly to see them play. If that makes me a racist, so be it.
It wasn't you that threw out the race card- the post above yours did.
I love downtown and midtown as well- all really cool!
Funny the amount of ignorance by people on UT message boards about Memphis. This city has its share of problems. But there's also a ton of successful, wealthy people here. It's got more personality than any other city in the state and better food. I choose to live here - no one forces me to. It would be nice if I didn't have to spend 16k a year for elementary school tuition, but most of my friends in Knoxville have felt forced to move into the Farragut school system to get their kids the education they want them to have. I spoke with a political leader in east TN who has a kid in school here. Says he loves it do much he isn't moving back. Go figure. I am guessing most critics haven't lived here. Most fear what they don't understand.
You ever eat at yums subs, best steak & cheese.
Can we not all just get along? Lots of reasons to be happy this week. Show some love!
I would agree with several of the points you made. I love going to Memphis and enjoy it every time I visit. You're definitely right about the food, and while it has its problems, it also has some nice areas, as you said.

I knew you were not calling me out - I was replying to camrox....
As a West Tennessean, let me say that I love Memphis. There's plenty to do, lots of good food to eat, and some of my best friends are Memphians. Having said that, I wouldn't want to live in Memphis, and it has nothing to do with race & everything to do with too much traffic and the fact that I don't care for big cities. Just my
Ironically, nobody even mentioned race until YOU brought it up.
