Overall, this has been a wonderful football season for me. The Memphis Tigers finished 10-3, won a share of the American Athletic Conference championship, then won the Miami Beach Bowl against BYU 55-48 in a thrilling double-overtime epic. The Tigers won their final 7 games, and somehow managed to retain Justin Fuente with a raise and a contract extension. It was more than I could have ever hoped for, given how bad we were just a few years ago. It was also my first year as a season ticket holder. My son and I went to all six home games. The Tigers won five of them.
On the other hand, the Tennessee Titans won their first game of the season, then promptly lost 14 of their last 15 games. They will draft second in the 2015 NFL draft. Hopefully they won’t botch it.
