RE: The Memphis And UAB Rivalry (Re-Post)
The loudest event I’ve ever witnessed was the 2008 game where Memphis was ranked #1. The 9,392 fans in Bartow were louder than any of the football games I’ve attended with 90,000 plus fans. This is the game where my dad really became a Blazer Fan. At work the next day, his coworkers in Northwest Alabama were talking about the game and they couldn’t believe that he was there to watch it in person. He’s been a big Blazer Fan ever since even without the win.

Because we are a football school now. So is Memphis. Just a couple of football schools playing a basketball game.

Rock, sarcasm aside, I think he used the football by mistake.

I think there should be a dedicated basketball board.

Memphis games have been absolute pandemonium many times.

What year was "The Slap"??

What game was it that we stepped on the baseline to turn the ball over when we had a chance to win the game?

My memory is fading but I wanted to say that Corey Jackson stepped on the baseline.

It may have happened twice, but that scenario fits the 1985 NCAA game when Ponder dribbled it off his foot out of bounds, and Coach Bartow chased the refs off the court yelling he was fouled.

Forgot about that one. I was thinking Corey Jackson or some guard did it as well. May have even been Marvett McDonald.
