Looks like Memphis has a lot of activities planned:

Re: Memphis Tigers

The discretionary part of scheduling (that is, OOC games) can say a lot about a program. Just for the heck of it, I checked to see who Memphis has scheduled for OOC games next year:

Memphis 2008: Mississippi, UT-Chattanooga, Middle Tennessee, Arkansas State.
For comparison, here is the FAU 2008 OOC schedule: Texas, Michigan State, Minnesota, UAB.

In 2007, FAU played: Florida, South Florida, Kentucky, Minnesota, Oklahoma State.
Memphis played: Mississippi, Jacksonville State, Arkansas State, Middle Tennessee.

Re: Memphis Tigers

Looks like Memphis wants "winnable" games in the non-conf. schedule where FAU is playing BCS competition in order to improve the program.

I guess the point here is that Memphis is just hanging on where they are and FAU has a vision to get into a BCS conference and be a perennial top 25 team. Memphis is content living in the now while FAU is building the program for the future.

GO OWLS!!!

Re: Memphis Tigers

The reason that we schedule down in OOC games is that we can actually make money on home games.  We don't have to be buy games for other programs.  I think that our athletic budget is one of the top two or three for non-BCS programs. We've played and beaten Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Florida State, Southern California, Virginia Tech, etc. etc., so it isn't like we don't have quite a bit of tradition in football.

Watch out for that "Drew" poster over there. He is a strange bird. Most of the rest of the Memphis fans are pretty cordial, however.

Hope you guys make it 3-nil over Memphis for the Sun Belt this season !

Re: Memphis Tigers

I read on cbsportsline that Memphis is ranked 120 in strength of schedule. I thought there were 119 teams in Div 1. So...they are 7-5 in the easiest schedule in Div 1. We should start the second string to handle the light work.
