Beat 7th ranked Auburn in 1975 at Jordan-Hare, I can't recall another.

We beat AL at Tuscaloosa? No it was in Memphis...surely we beat UAB in AL.
That was 1987 at the Liberty Bowl. Memphis State was 1-3 and in the post-Dockery slump. Bama was #15 and in the post-Bryant slump.

Ya feel better now ya jerk.


Im not wrong.

FAU is one of the worst offenses in CFB and they had a chance to make it a one score game with 5 minutes left.

I really only cared bc I bet on Memphis but you guys melted me pretty good into a valley and then a nice Peak when Taggart gave the game away.

Their D is ranked two spots behind yours. Three spots behind Coastal Carolina.

Ya think Memphis didn't leave any points on the field? By the way, it looks like you won your bet.

Well, Memphis is the only conference team to show up in a bowl game thus far. Otherwise, we be skunked...

On paper, Memphis didn't have much reason to show up. The season was disappointing coming off last year's championship, and it was a makeshift bowl in the middle of Alabama a couple days before Christmas. But show up they did, and they took care of business handily.

Props to Memphis.

This was not a very good Memphis football team compared to Tiger squads of the past few years. The losses on offense (Gainwell, Coxie and Williams) were too difficult to overcome. The defense was mediocre (at best) all season.

But this team never quit and showed some heart and hustle. And Brady White was a star. I was proud of them.

As to the AAC being 1-3 in bowls so far ... not good.

Isn't part of your feelings due to in part of what we were the past 5 years? Being in the G5 the top of the mountain is NY6. We got there last year and the only way from there is down. Ask UCF fans. They know exactly what I'm talking about.

Were we as good as your team this year? probably not, but we still ended up 8-3 and in third place in the conference. I'm sure there are several teams in this conference that wouldn't mind going 8-3 every year, including your team.

yeah, when a world-wide pandemic causes you to lose your two breakout players (Gainwell/Coxie) on offense you kinda take what you can get.

8-3, Bowl win...lets move on to 2021

and not counting the mighty SFA lumberjacks, we only beat one team with a winning record by one point because of a shanked easy field goal. that team with a winning record that we happened to beat got obliterated by BYU.

Ive seen 6-5 teams with less talent that could beat this years team. But 8-3 and inaugural Gump bowl champs over a taggert coached FAU team. woo hoo.

mumble mumble grumble grumble......

As a Tulsa fan, you should look at your own team. Tulsa recent record: 4 wins in 2019, 3 wins in 2018 and 2 wins in 2017. And what's your fan base - 10K ???

Tulsa brings zero to the AAC table.

Yes, I sure would have liked for USF to have had Memphis's season.

But then again we didn't go to the Cotton Bowl last year like you did. So different sets of expectations among the fan bases.

I wasn't picking on anybodies team. I was defending our team.

I just found it odd that a fan of a team that hasn't had a winning record for several years until this year, is bagging on us. Especially in a game we won handily while covering the spread.

As for USF, we're all rooting for you guys to turn it around. Even UCF fans for the most part. It's good for the rivalry, and it's good for the conference.

USF was one point 2 points from beating that poorly coached talent laden team.

I'm the villain right now. I'm good with it. I've watched a lot of football. We were paper Tigers.

We went 8-3 in a Covid season without Gainwell and Coxie. We played our last few games with 52 or so scholarship players.

We just signed our best recruiting class in history, and added two 4-star transfers from Mich State and a 4 star stud QB from AZ, who has already kicked azz in the P5.

Are you still mad about those stupid BLM stickers that nobody on earth could see? Am I going to have to listen to this for the entire off season? 03-lmfao
