Memphis fans
Some of the coolest people I've ever met on here were Memphis fans. From barbecue debates to actual athletics, their fan base is one of the most knowledgeable I've ever come across in my nearly thirty years of existence on this planet we call Earth. And the fact both our schools are joining the Big East at pretty much the same time makes this even better!

Memphis fans, you're awesome in my book! 04-cheers

I lived in Houston for about 6 months when my company sent me there to oversee the takeover of a hotel. Anybody who complains about traffic in their city needs to shut their mouths. Houston is worse. A lot worse.

BTW, i wonder if you can help me GS. There is a Bosnian restaurant near the Galleria. It is awesome but I cant remember the name of it. Do you know?

RE: Memphis fans
I think Memphis fans run the spectrum of college sports fandom. There are some that are very knowledgable and real. And there are some that are utter jackwagons. Plain and simple.
I know I don't speak just for myself when I say that the IQ level of the banter on this board went down 10-15 points when Memphis was added.

And that's ok! I can appreciate noise - for the sake of noise - once in awhile. Many Memphis fans are passionate and I respect that.

I also respect, Boise, SDSU, UCF, Navy, SMU, UL, UC, UCONN, Rutgers, and USF, fans.

I am definitely nBe 4 Life and will support the Tigers on the field of play from now on. They are deserving and fit Syracuse's old spot (bad football - traditional Bball power program) just fine. I really hope to see their fans have a football program to be proud of.

Wait until we start playing each other. We will be the fanbase you hate, but it will help rivalries.

At least there is a calm before the storm, and we all have ideas for food when traveling.04-cheers

Can't say that I do. Sorry, man. I don't usually go to the Galleria area. I wish I could help you out. I bet someone like HtownOrange or ShockerBob would know the answer. When I go to Houston, it's usually to one of the two Star Pizza locations. (By the way, if you haven't had it, you're really missing out. It's easily the best pizza I've ever had.)

BigEastHomer: Of course, Memphis' fan base has some complete jackwagons, but so does every other fan base, including ours. Of course, there's one that always seems to have the most obnoxious fans I've ever met. I'm sure you know which one I'm thinking of. 03-lmfao (Hint: It's a certain school in Austin, Texas.)

BTW, I found out what it was. It is Cafe Pita on Westheimer. You should check it out...it is amazing....and cheap. Never had Star Pizza...actually Im not a huge pizza guy to be honest. However, when I make it back to Houston I'll try to check it out.

yea, we also tend to bring the worst out in other fanbases. Only Memphis fans can make Marshall and USM fans act like tiger high.

Oh, nice! I'll have to check out then. Also, sweet! There are two Star Pizza locations, like I said: One on Norfolk (the original, by the way) and one in the Heights. Here's their official website.

id probably go to the Norfolk location since I usually only go to Houston now for Tiger games and it is closer to UH.

Yes, it's definitely closer to UH. But really, you can't go wrong with either location. The pizza is always top-notch!

Edit: Just realized you meant the original one. Whoops. 03-drunk

That's why I prefer reading these boards to Coogfans, which is so painful to read at times! There are so many Coogwagons to be found there. But, as you said, it's all relative. I'll take our wagons, Memphis included, over living in the land o' Bevo anyday.

This is going to be a fun league. 04-rock

The feeling is mutual. Memphis and Houston go back a LONG way. Houston already showed the college football world what it could do in a fair situation (in the old SWC). Now both of our schools are on a level playing field and some people are going to be very surprised in the future.

Yes, we certainly do. We've got two threads dedicated to barbecue and Mexican food alone! I'm surprised nobody from New York or Chicago hasn't made a Big East Pizza Thread yet.

Anyway, I've always respected you guys when it comes to smack talk. You can talk smack like crazy, but the thing is, if you can back it up a hell of a lot more than you can't in a particular sport, all your opponents can do is tip their hats to you and admit defeat.

TripleA: What I've learned since I started posting on the Big East boards is they tend to circle the wagons around those that will be joining the league. They did that with me even before our move became official, and they seem to be doing the same with Memphis fans.
