The expectations of the True Blue Nation are always high. When Memphis comes into a season with a top five recruiting class, the fans are just that more enamored.
Yet to the outside world, the Tigers haven't been relevant on the national stage for years. It seems that every year the early buzz fizzles with a quickness.
That probably hurts some feelings, but the truth always does. Winning C-USA championships didn't really carry much weight, and why should it when Memphis followed them up with early exits from the "big dance."
