Every time a team takes the field, it has to be ready to play. Plenty of great teams have been beaten by lesser opponents because they overlooked their competition.
The University of Memphis Tigers are by no means a "great" football team, so it is even more essential to come into every game ready to give all. Headed into their game this past Saturday (Nov. 30) against the Temple Owls, the Tigers were actually a 10-point favorite.
Perhaps that line got to Memphis' head because the Tigers certainly didn't live up to that projection. It was Senior Day at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium and unfortunately it wasn't the send-off that the upperclassmen would have imagined.
