The Week in Review

It was another week devoid of a Memphis football game (sigh), but there is plenty to evaluate as the Tigers confront a 13-game losing streak against UCF on Saturday.

We caught up with how a few former Tigers players are doing in the NFL, and how some Shelby County Schools players are getting time on the field despite their fall season basically shut down.

The NCAA says basketball games can’t start until late November, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start dreaming about matchups. The American Athletic Conference released a few details about how it plans to work the schedule this season.

And if you want to see how one of our reporters fared in a sports science evaluation – the same kind that Memphis Tigers athletes go through – we have the story for you. — Sports editor Elaine Sung
