Memphis lost at home to Temple, 41-21, last year. either the tigers' same players and same coaching staff got a whole lot better or they have a lot of juco transfers.

Paxton Lynch was terrible last year as a Freshman but has turned into a nice QB as a Sophomore. Hello Bob Diaco!

Memphis improved last year but UConn fans didn't notice because they caught them on the road in bad weather with nothing to play for.

When you are constantly 2-10 the first step is to be 2-10 and not getting blown out every week.

It wasn't an accident they played Mississippi to a draw for three quarters last week on the road.

our Seniors last season (left over from the previous coach) quit after our 7th loss of the season...Memphis gave zero effort against Temple and UConn because of that.

these kids were all recruited by Fuente to run his system, and it seems to be paying off.

Memphis is 3-2 (1-0) and still has games against teams like: Houston, SMU, Tulsa, Tulane, USF, UConn...we just might get to 6-7 wins at this pace.

Memphis, in the third year of the Fuentes turn around project, will go 9 & 3 at worst this year. They also do not play ECU.
Younger players bought in.......

Though most here would like to see an invite to the B1G or ACC, this new league could be pretty good if it continues to develop and a new TV contract happens.

I'm sure the last thing you want is high expectations but I think Memphis could conceivably run the table the rest of the year. Nobody else on their schedule (yes, including UConn) would be particularly daunting. Missing ECU and UCF on the schedule means you could potentially share the conference with ECU while both being undefeated. Almost makes you wish there was a conference championship game this year, doesn't it?

my head tells me that's possible...my heart tells me to remember this is Memphis football, and to just be happy with 6-7 wins.

either way, It's time to pay Justin Fuente some real $$$

Outstanding coach. He left a huge void when he left TCU.
