Exclamation ESPN Preseason SP+ Ranking - Tigers #22
If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time Memphis has been ranked in the top 25 of the ESPN SP+ preseason rankings. UCF (#18) is the only G5 team ranked higher than us.

Interesting read and a solid ranking system.

EDIT: I incorrectly listed UCF as the only P6 team listed higher than us. Since the P6 refers to the power conferences + the AAC, I changed it to correctly reflect the G5.

Great news and thanks for referencing us as P6. We need all of our fans to start this practice. It’s bad enough the media calls us G5, we don’t need our own fans to follow their ignorant lead.

Looks good, but Connelly doesn't address whether or not he figures coaching changes into his analysis. I guess it is next to impossible to assign some value to that variable, but it would be interesting to see what he thinks.

Yeah, I saw my mistake but since this isn't a hugely popular thread, I didn't bother to correct it. I will now so as to not cause confusion.

Well, since the coaching staff had a really great offensive showing against Penn State and the defense will be overhauled, I would say this could take into account coaching changes.

Bill C relies way too much on recruiting rankings to be a meaningful metric.

But good nonetheless.
