I've always enjoyed that DeAngelo run against UTEP at the Liberty Bowl, with that QB Billy Barefield downfield block.

I think we most of our QBs were hurt that season so we ran a lot of wildcat.

Jake Elliott with the game-saving 1OT 55-yard bomb in the 2014 Miami Beach Bowl.

Kick would have legit been good from 80 yards.

That was one of the craziest games I ever witnessed. Ark St. kicked our tail all game until the last 9 minutes. It is as if the Tigers decided it was time start taking the game seriously.

Me and a buddy went and got up to leave midway through the third quarter but the exit was too crowded so we went back to sit down. Then it all turned around in stunning fashion.

My favorite running play also. I thought the UTEP players were going to try to fight me and my friends we were heckling them so bad. I actually feel like we contributed to that win lol. The QB was so mad he was flipping us off and then immediately throwing picks. Did that 2 or 3 times. Mike price went and threw on his headset that he hadn’t been using to ignore us(at least that’s what I tell myself).

Larry Kenon's rebound/THROW DOWN against Texas in the Coliseum. He stretched as high as he could with one hand, got control of the ball and absolutely THREW it through the rim - dunks were not allowed then. All in one motion.

This is one of my all time favorite football plays. It just stunned the big UT crowd. The Tigers really had that game, but let it slip away.
Also DeAngelo's TD run around the end against Ole Miss. That was a statement.

The Kevin Cobb kickoff return is not one of my favorites simply because it was so flukey.

The Cobb and Powers plays, because they were all heart and I hate UT so bad.

But also, ALL the Deangelo runs, esp. the Billy Barefield fun, and the basketball ballet with four players.

I also really liked the play where Miss J's son just jumped right over another basketball player from a standing position.

Being a Tiger has at times been so damn much fun.

I forgot about that play!!!! That's got to be near the top.

The Danton Barto goal-line stop to hold off Ole Miss has to be in the discussion.

The SEMO play, Jake's field goal against BYU and one nobody has mentioned...

Andre Allen's alley oop off the backboard to Rodney Carney against Tulsa.

Did he get credit for 3 or 4 tackles on that goal-line stand?

Vintage RIP coaching, playing not to lose and losing anyway.

4th and goal from the 2, up 13-10 late in the 4th quarter, on the road against the defending national champions, and you kick a fu*&ing field goal??? Go for it and worst case the Vols get the ball on the 2 and have to drive 65 yards to kick a field goal to tie. And we had shut them down all day.

As soon as the ball went through the uprights and we are up 16-10, I turned to my wife and said "You KNOW what is going to happen next!" And it did.

Still pisses me off.

RE: The best play in Memphis Tigers Sports.
My best play was not a single one but the Dana Kirk "wrong way" play. It worked almost every time. The crowd loved it and the opponents would bite their tongues off. The CDR dunk over Kevin Love, the Shyrone Chatman (sp) half court shot and the Joe Jackson block has to rank among the most unforgettable plays I ever saw. Penny made so many he would need a class by himself.

Close to 3/4 shot was Keldrick Bradford.

That is my favorite.

Stole the ball from Pee Wee Barber in Metro semis I believe. Andre was clutch. The ‘85 NCAA tournament showed just how clutch he was with two game winners vs UAB and BC. Good teams then. Either could qualify because of the stakes.

I think it was the very next game, or previous game, that Turner hit the game winner against UAB.

I also loved the Arkansas game at the LIberty Bowl where we just kept blocking all their punts, They never adjusted, I think we blocked 3 in that game.

I saw Michael Wilson go over 7ft 1 buomshay buomshay at Georgetown.
Buomshay at rim went up and Michael leaped over him and jammed it.
Everybody in the building was in awe

That was hilarious. He glanced at the ref, the ref gave him a brief look like, “don’t look at me”, and Keith took 1 dribble and about took the rim off.
I would love to see that on video.
