The renovated 62,380-seat facility, built in 1965 at a cost of $3.7 million by the city of Memphis and renovated in 1987 for $19.5 million, is operated by the Memphis Park Commission. The Tigers inaugurated the stadium in the fall of 1965 and in 41 years, have compiled a 130-106-7 record in the Liberty Bowl. The stadium features a synthetic FieldTurf playing surface, spacious locker rooms and a four-level press box, which features a stadium club for VIPs. The playing surface, which had been natural grass through the 2004 season, was replaced with the new FieldTurf surface that is used in more than 25 NCAA Division IA football stadiums. In December of 1983, city of Memphis officials named the playing surface Rex Dockery Field in honor of the late Tiger coach, who was killed in a plane crash. In the spring of 1984, the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Memphis added a new scoreboard and sound system to Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium/Rex Dockery Field. The computer operated scoreboard is 100feet long and stands 23-feet high. It has a

16’ x 32’ message center and is the largest scoreboard in the Mid-South. Included in the 1987 stadium renovation were the addition of the sky-suites located on the east side of the stadium, approximately 12,000 seats in the stands and a stadium club to accommodate donors. In addition, several areas of the stadium were vastly improved, including the lighting system, playing surface, handicap seating area, concession stands and restroom facilities. In 1999, the city of Memphis and Jumbotron entered into an agreement which placed a new video scoreboard system in the stadium. In addition to the new playing surface for the 2005 season, the stadium has also undergone minor aesthetic changes that have made the stadium look more like the “Home of the Tigers.” The stadium is also the host site of the annual AutoZone/Liberty Bowl game each December, as well as the Southern Heritage Classic. Located near the Memphis Fairgrounds, the stadium also hosted the Tennessee-Kentucky High School All-Star game in 1994. The largest crowd to witness a Memphis home football game at the Liberty Bowl was the record-setting 65,885 who attended the Tigers’ stunning upset of No. 6 ranked Tennessee in 1996. The Tigers defeated the Vols, 21-17, before a regionally-televised audience on CBS-TV. The entire nation, however, saw Memphis’ game-winning drive when CBS carried the final five minutes nationally. In 2004, Memphis hosted Louisville for an ESPN-broadcasted Thursday night game. A crowd of 52,384 fans came out for the game, marking the largest Tiger crowd for a nonSEC opponent. That same season, Memphis set a new home attendance average record with 41,175 fans in just five games. The previous high average was 40,622 in 2003, and that was for seven home games.

TIGERS ON TV

MEDIA INFO

In 2005, Conference USA entered into long-term agreements with ESPN, Inc. (ESPN) and College Sports Television Networks, Inc. (CSTV). The new agreements contain six-year initial terms to begin July 1, 2005 and conclude June 30, 2011. “We are very pleased with these new agreements,” said C-USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky. “The Conference’s financial goals will be met and we will have more events distributed to a broader audience than ever before.” The agreement with ESPN extends the conference’s current regular season football package to include the broadcast of the conference’s Football Championship Game. It also encompasses distribution of men’s basketball and women’s basketball on ESPN/ESPN2 and both tournament championship games. The C-USA content granted to ESPN may also be available through the collection of ESPN entities such as ESPN Mobile (wireless), ESPN Interactive, ESPN Broadband (ESPN 360), ESPN.com, ESPN Pay-Per-View, ESPN Video-on-Demand, ESPN HD, ESPN2 HD, ESPN Deportes and more. “With this agreement, fans will continue to enjoy the very best Conference USA action on the ESPN networks including the exciting, new football championship,” said John Wildhack, ESPN senior vice president, programming. “We look forward to advancing our strong association with our friends at the conference level as well as the member schools by using the array of ESPN entities to deliver Conference USA related content to college sports enthusiasts wherever they are.” The University of Memphis is no stranger to the talent and leadership of ESPN, having played football and basketball games on the prestigious sports-entertainment network for a number of years. The Tigers’ first appearance on ESPN occurred during the 1982 season when Memphis traveled to Athens, Ga., to take on Hershall Walker and the 14th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs. In 1993, Memphis played a Thanksgiving weekend contest against the Miami Hurricanes in Orange Bowl Stadium. In 2004, four of Memphis’ last five games of the season were broadcast nationally by ESPN. The Memphis basketball team has been seen on ESPN 118 times dating back to the 1982 season, when Memphis played Wyoming on the young television network. The contract with ESPN includes several key events, including the C-USA Football Championship game. The contract also provides broadcasts of 10 regular-season football games on ESPN or ESPN2, as well as six men’s basketball and three women’s basketball games. The network also airs the men’s and women’s basketball championship finals. Memphis has three games scheduled for ESPN broadcasts in 2006, including Sunday contests with Ole Miss (Sept. 3) and Southern Miss (Nov. 5) and a Sept. 30 meeting with Tennessee at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

12 2006 OUTLOOK

2006 SEASON OUTLOOK Coach Tommy West and his Tigers have their sights set on a Conference USA championship and a fourthconsecutive bowl appearance.

A

s we start this season’s outlook, an obvious question abounds: “What will the Tigers do in a season that has been described by some media as ‘A.D’ – After DeAngelo?” But if you look back, last season’s outlook began with a similar question, “What will the Tigers do without Danny Wimprine, who quarterbacked the Tigers for four years and threw for over 10,000 yards?” As we begin the 2006 season, West certainly does not want to minimize the importance of either one of these two players who have certainly made their marks in Tiger history, but he does want to emphasize that what he and his staff have been building has been based on the entire team being successful. And when the likes of Williams and Wimprine leave the program, it is expected that other players in the system will step up and assume their increased roles in continuing the success of Tiger football. And that brings us to 2006, where the true questions are: 1) Which players will emerge and continue the scoring strike for the Tigers?; 2) What impact will the players who are returning from injuries in 2005 have on the program?; and 3) What immediate impact can quarterback Martin Hankins have on a program that lost two starting quarterbacks last season and ended the year with only nine passing touchdowns?

THE OFFENSE Because all of the above questions refer to the future of the Tiger offense, that is where we begin this outlook. In 2005, Memphis scored 326 total points. Of those 326 points, Williams accounted for 114 points, record-setting kicker Stephen Gostkowski was responsible for 101 points and quarterback/ receiver Maurice Avery scored 44 points. West does not try to hide the fact that those numbers are staggering, and realizes that senior receiver Ryan Scott is the leading returning scorer for the Tigers, having scored 18 points in 2005. The next three highest returning scorers are junior tailback Joseph Doss, and sophomore receivers Earnest Williams and Maurice Jones, who all accounted for 12 points apiece in 2005. “We all know the importance of DeAngelo Williams,” said West. “But, it is unfair to the rest of the team for people to say that the only reason we went to three bowl games is because of DeAngelo. That makes it sound as if no one else in this program has done anything. “We are not starting over,” added West. “We have very capable people who are going to have to produce. We think we have some capable people who have not produced because they haven’t been put in that role before. I think we are going to be solid because of the way we have recruited in this program, but this is a unique year because of the production loss in scoring when you take out Williams, Gostkowski and Avery.” Offensively in general, the Tigers are deep

at nearly every position. The receiving corps is as deep as it has ever been. The offensive line is made up of veterans and has led Conference USA the last two seasons in its impressive sack denial numbers. The ground attack should be solid with Doss. And, the Tigers have a seasoned quarterback who previously threw for over 7,000 yards and 65 touchdowns in two seasons at Southeastern Louisiana.

QUARTERBACK The Tigers were in one of the most unique situations in the country last season. Junior Patrick Byrne, who had kicked for the Tigers the previous two seasons, had worked hard in the spring and earned the starting job in the fall. Memphis opened the season with rival Ole Miss on Labor Day on ESPN, and no one would have expected what would happen in mere minutes of the starting of the game clock. The Rebels controlled the ball for the first series, and after Ole Miss converted a 35-yard field goal, the Tigers took over the ball on the 20-yard line. On the first play from scrimmage, Patrick Byrne completed a four-yard pass to Doss. On the second play, Williams rushed for a two-yard gain. And it was on the third play that Byrne, who worked so hard to prove himself worthy of the starting job, suffered a seasonending broken leg when he was sacked for a loss of two yards by Kelvin Robinson. A dejected Byrne left the field and would be forced to watch from the sidelines. But, as fate would have it, he wouldn’t be on the sidelines by himself for very long. Redshirt freshman and hometown favorite Will Hudgens was pressed into action for the remainder of the Ole Miss game, and despite his best efforts, the Tigers dropped the opener, 10-6. Hudgens started the next game against Chattanooga and completed 10-of-15 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns to lead Memphis to a 59-14 victory over the Mocs. By the third game of the season, Hudgens appeared more comfortable and started in the road contest with Tulsa – a team the Tigers were facing for the first time in the newly-structured C-USA. Hudgens threw for 129 yards and a score on eight completions before true freshman Billy Barefield was called on to start the fourth quarter with the Tigers down, 28-21. Barefield worked two series and was under center when the Tigers tied the score at 31. On Memphis’ last series in the fourth quarter, Hudgens was called back to the field with the Tigers in a 2nd-and-18 situation from the Memphis 40-yard line. Hudgens attempted a pass to Taz Knockum, but was rushed on the play and dropped by Chadd Evans. It was on that one play in the fourth quarter that Hudgens would join Byrne as he too broke his leg and would be forced to miss the remainder of the season. And now, all eyes were on Barefield, who had just the previous spring and the months of August and September to learn Memphis’

system. Barefield helped Memphis to perhaps one of its most memorable wins of the season over UTEP, which had arrived at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium undefeated and the league favorite. Barefield was 12-of-19 for 79 yards in

RUNNING BACK All eyes are expected to be on this position as outsiders continue to wonder about the absence of DeAngelo Williams. But those on the inside are well aware that veteran Joseph Doss has been waiting in the wings, and 2006 could be a break-out year for the shifty back. In 2005, Doss was third on the team in rushing yards with 465 yards on 85 attempts. He scored two touchdowns, both of which were his first collegiate scores and were against UCF. “Joe has waited his turn and this is the natural progression of college football,” West stated. “DeAngelo is gone and now Joe steps in. It is his time. That is the way it works. He has worked hard and prepared himself for this opportunity, and I expect that he will be even more productive this season.” Doss, a local favorite from Melrose High, has the same infectious personality and beaming smile that Williams won so many fans over with. He’s fast. He’s gutsy. He’s considered one of the hardest working Tigers on the squad. So all this begs the question – what is the difference between Doss and Williams?

“Joe is a very disciplined runner and has a very good knack for making the first guy miss,” said West. “He is consistent, has really good vision and is an outstanding inside runner. He’s not a guy who loses yards very often, trying to reverse the field, which is probably the biggest difference between the two. Where DeAngelo could go anywhere, Joe stays pretty disciplined within the offense, keeping the ball where it should be.” In addition to Doss, the Tigers expect production out of junior Jamarcus Gaither and redshirt freshmen T.J. Pitts and Miguel Barnes. Pitts and Barnes were named the co-Offensive Scout Team MVPs last season. Also in the mix is junior Chris Barnett, a transfer who saw much of his action on special teams last season. “I am not interested in a back running for 2,000 yards,” added West. “What I am interested in is that our rushing totals stay where they are. We have been very good running the football and I want to continue that. We will do that with wide receivers and running backs.”

WIDE RECEIVER Once again, the receiving corps is one of the deepest spots for the Tigers. The only significant loss at that position is Avery, who by the fifth game last season had been converted to quarterback. Leading receiver Ryan Scott returns for his senior season after leading the Tigers last year with 577 yards and three touchdowns on 37 receptions. He is a consistent long distance threat for the Tigers, and has the potential to have a break-out year with a seasoned quarterback at the helm. Additional returning threats for the Tigers are sophomores Earnest Williams, Maurice Jones, Antonio McCoy and Carlton Robinzine, as well as junior Taz Knockum. Jones was named to the C-USA All-Freshman Team last season after totaling 157 yards and two touchdowns on 15 catches. Williams and McCoy were consistent threats who can also run the ball well, while Robinzine returns after having his season cut short after severely burning his hand prior to the Southern Miss game. Knockum, who is a steady player and hard worker, has become a consistent receiving threat and will be looked to for leadership. “I think we are a very talented group of wide receivers,” said West. “Our challenge is to play that way. At times I feel like we don’t play as talented as we are at that position. We have to play as good as we think we are. “Some of the long runs and the big plays are going to have to come from that group,” added West. “If they come through, we will be fine offensively.” The coaching staff also anxiously looks for the return this fall of senior Mario Pratcher, who missed all of the 2005 season after suffering a knee injury just prior to the season opener against Ole Miss. In addition to Pratcher, redshirt freshman Carlos Singleton could add another lucrative end-zone threat. Singleton poses a potential threat to opposing defensive backs as a 6-8 lanky receiver who spent the last year learning the Tiger offensive scheme. Senior Brandon Hunt, sophomores Michael Grandberry and Brandon Feagans, redshirt freshmen Brian Hall, Alton Starr and Lucian Godwin, as well as newcomers Dave Thomas and Duke Calhoun should all add to the depth

the win as Memphis was powered by the legs of Williams who rushed for 236 yards and two touchdowns. Barefield got the starting nod a game later against UCF in Orlando, but struggled to generate offense again, throwing for just 71 yards on 13 pass completions. It was at that point that West made the decision to move then-leading receiver Maurice Avery to quarterback and also to rely more heavily on the ground game. Avery ultimately led the Tigers to wins in five of the last seven games, including a 38-31 victory over Akron in the Motor City Bowl, while the Tigers led C-USA and finished the season ranked fifth nationally in rushing offense. In 2006, Byrne and Hudgens return from injury, and Barefield is in the mix as well. But, all eyes were on transfer Martin Hankins in the spring. At that point, Hudgens and Byrne were both limited to non-contact work, and it was Hankins who received a majority of the reps in the numerous scrimmages. Hankins joined the Tigers last fall, but was only allowed to practice with the squad because he had transferred from Southeastern Louisiana, where he played for Hal Mumme. In his two seasons at SLU, Hankins threw for 7,777 yards and 65 touchdowns and held several NCAA 1-AA records. During the spring, Hankins was consistent and accurate, and West was pleased that he had grasped the system as quickly as he had. By the end of spring, Hankins was the leader on the depth chart and West expects there to be heavy competition in the fall. “I don’t think it’s fair to pick the starting quarterback in the spring or the summer,” said West. “I want all of our quarterbacks to have the chance to compete in August, especially the ones who weren’t physically able to in the spring. Both Patrick and Will still have the chance to compete; and I expect in August for everyone to be competing for that spot.” In addition to the foursome mentioned above, the depth at quarterback is extended by signee Matt Malouf, who was considered the top quarterback prospect for Mississippi, and walkon Brett Toney, who redshirted last season and worked with the offensive scout team.

of the receiving corps. Thomas worked out with the squad in the spring after enrolling at Memphis in January. He was an early signee for the Tigers, but waited until January while he was rehabbing a knee injury he suffered in the final game of his high school career. Calhoun was a highly-publicized signee who joins the squad after a stellar prep career at Raleigh-Egypt High here in Memphis.

TIGHT END The Tigers take a hit at tight end this season with the loss of John Doucette, who was a strong player that blocked, ran well and could consistently catch passes. This season, the Tigers are young at tight end with sophomore Brett Russell as the leading challenger for that position. Russell played in all 12 games last season and started in five games, primarily in a two tight end set. Russell caught two passes last season for 26 yards and scored his first collegiate touchdown against Chattanooga. “Brett Russell is young and hasn’t been counted on as much as a tight end because we had John Doucette, but it is time for him to step up and take his role,” West stated. Russell will be joined by redshirt freshman Stacy Jones, who may also see work at fullback, and sophomore walk-on Devin Gardner. Newcomers Walter Andrews, Deven Onarheim and Charlie Bryant are expected to begin work at that position in the fall. Andrews practiced with the Tigers in the spring after transferring from Arkansas, where he walked on with the Razorbacks in 2003. Onarheim signed with the Tigers from Thompson High in Maylene, Ala., and Bryant played his prep ball locally at FACS.

THE OFFENSIVE LINE The Tiger offensive line, which earned the nickname, Pit Crew, last season in regards to Williams’ Heisman Trophy campaign, will once

again be deep with veterans who know what is expected of them. In the last two seasons, the offensive line has given up just 14 sacks. Last year’s total of nine was best in C-USA, and tied for third nationally. The line’s biggest losses from last season are left guard Andrew Handy and left tackle Greg Billingslea. Senior Blake Butler, who started out at center last year and rotated at guard and tackle, is expected to once again be one of the anchors in the line. He will be joined by juniors Andy Smith and Michael Denning, as well as senior Jared McGowan and redshirt freshman Kenneth Turner on the inside. Smith started the first nine games of 2005 before suffering a knee injury that sidelined him for the remaining three games, and Denning played in nine games last season. At tackle, senior Willie Henderson is the veteran of the group, and will be joined by sophomores Brandon Pearce and Philip Beliles, junior Abraham Holloway and redshirt freshmen Eric Evans and Paul Edwards. Pearce started all 12 games last season and earned All-Freshman honors from Conference USA. Henderson started in five games at left tackle in 2005, while Holloway started three games at right tackle. Senior Stephen Schuh, who started the final seven games of the season at center, is the projected starter at that position heading into the fall. Schuh, a walk-on candidate who earned a scholarship prior to the start of the 2005 season, had a consistent spring and was listed on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy this summer. Beliles could give Schuh some relief at center after having worked in that position this spring. “I feel good about our offensive line,” said West. “We are very solid and we have to continue to try to improve daily. I am hoping that we will be able to go two-deep at that position this season.” This past spring, former defensive lineman Arron Bentley was converted to the offensive line, and will be joined this fall by newcomers Dominik Riley and Will Truitt. Riley played for Carver High in Montgomery, Ala., and Truitt is another local prospect who joins the squad from Briarcrest Christian.

THE DEFENSE

Junior Joe Doss is looking for a break-out year in 2006. Last season he rushed for 465 yards and two touchdowns in a back-up role for the Tigers.

West does not hide the fact that he feels the Tiger defense needs to be better than it was last season. But, he is quick to point out that they did improve late in the season. “I was disappointed in our defense during the first part of last season,” said West. “But I really was proud of how they finished the year. Really, they were a major part of us going to a bowl game by how they played down the stretch last year. “We have to pick up where we left off, and we should,” added West. “There is no doubt in my mind that we are more talented this year than what we have been. We have more people who are capable of making big plays. I am excited about our defense this year.” One key game defensively last season was also the contest in which the Tigers became bowl eligible—the season finale against Marshall at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. While the Tigers had allowed over 500 yards of total offense in four of the previous seven games leading up to the Marshall meeting, they proved that they were capable of stopping both the

run and the pass at the same time versus the Thundering Herd. The Tiger defense held the Herd to just 57 yards rushing and 97 yards passing in the 26-3 victory that had the Tigers awaiting their third bowl announcement in as many years. And while the Tigers had held four previous opponents to below 100 yards rushing prior to the Marshall meeting, it was the first time since the final game of the 2002 season against TCU that the Tiger defense had held an opponent to under 100 passing yards. In 2006, West expects the defense to be more successful in stopping the passing game, but they also can’t sacrifice the rush defense, an area the Tigers have been consistent in, for that to happen. “The first thing we have to do is stop the run, and we led our league in run defense last season,” said West. “And that is the reason we played in a bowl. Now, for us to win a championship, we must get better with pass coverage. “We have been very average with rushing the passer and covering the receivers,” added West. “And we have to improve in both places in order for us to go from winning seven or eight games to winning nine or 10 games and winning a championship.”

THE DEFENSIVE LINE The Tigers, which often shifted from a three-man front to a two-man front to a fourman front last season due to injuries, lost Marcus West and LaVale Washington on the front line, but will hopefully have added depth with the return of seniors Van Houston and Rubio Phillips. Houston missed all of 2005 with a knee injury and Phillips saw significant action against Ole Miss before suffering a season-ending knee injury in that game. Two Ole Miss transfers are expected to make an immediate impact this fall as Jada Brown and Corey Mills will challenge for playing time at defensive end. Brown was able to practice with the Tigers last season, but Mills joined the Tigers on the field for the first time in the spring. Both worked consistently with the number one defense in the spring and


played opposite sides with Houston working at nose guard. Also adding depth to the line will be sophomores Brandon Douglas and Clinton McDonald and redshirt freshman Greg Terrell, who all worked extensively in the spring. Terrell was a pleasant surprise and was praised often by the coaching staff in the spring. The Tigers also hope to regain the services of Ryan Williams, who had shoulder surgery in the spring and is expected to return later in the season. The Tigers also signed Steven Turner of Brownsville, Tenn., and Josh Weaver of Marietta, Ga., who are both expected to begin working with the line this fall. “I think we are talented and we have some depth on the defensive line,” said West. “We have some people who are capable of making some big plays for us up front.”

LINEBACKER The Tigers also enter 2006 having lost the top two tacklers from last season in linebackers Tim Goodwell and Carlton Baker, both of whom started nearly every game in 2005. But to counter the losses, the Tigers look to regain veteran linebacker Quinton McCrary, who had a promising junior season ahead of him last year before he was hampered by injuries. McCrary was an honors candidate heading into 2005, but missed the first two games of the season with an ankle sprain. He started the next two games before he was felled by a thigh injury that forced him off the field for the remainder of the year. He was granted an additional year through a medical redshirt and returns as a junior this fall. Alongside of McCrary will be returning seniors Mike Snyder and Michael Spurlock, juniors Greg Hinds, Heath Grant and Donald Thornton, sophomores TiQuintin Morrell and Greg Jackson, and redshirt freshman Jeremy Rockette. Snyder started 10 games in place of McCrary and totaled 44 tackles, one sack and a fumble

THE SECONDARY One of the key defensive threats for the Tigers returns this season as starting free safety Wesley Smith opens the year having already received publicity from national media this summer. He has been named to preseason All-C-USA teams by The Sporting News and Blue Ribbon College Football Yearbook. Smith has started all 37 of his career games and has been listed as a first teamer on the All-Conference USA squad the last three-straight seasons. He is Memphis’ leading returning tackler, totaling 82 stops last season, and also recorded a sack and two forced fumbles. Smith is backed up at free safety by sophomore Brandon Patterson and redshirt freshman Chris Huffman. Patterson played in 11 games last season and logged 13 tackles, while Huffman redshirted last year. Huffman was named the MVP of the Blue-Gray Game in the spring after totaling five tackles and returning a fumble 62 yards for a touchdown. At cat safety, the Tigers return seniors Derek Clenin and Sam Brewer, junior Jake Kasser and sophomore Tyler Griffin. Clenin, Kasser and Brewer all started games last season and should challenge each other for playing time this fall. Clenin had one of his best career games in the win over UTEP last year when he recovered a fumble deep in Tiger territory to stop a potential Miner score. He also intercepted a pass and returned it to the UTEP 9-yard line to set up a

Tiger score. He was named a C-USA Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts, and had one of his proudest moments this past spring when he was informed that he had earned a scholarship. The Tigers have depth on the corners as well, with seniors Brandon McDonald, Jamaal Rufus and Dustin Lopez all starting several games last year. McDonald led the defense with three interceptions and 11 pass breakups in 2005. Lopez totaled 14 tackles and seven pass breakups, while Rufus started the last seven games of the season at corner and logged 41 tackles and seven breakups. Senior Jermaine Chambers, junior LaKeitharun Ford and redshirt freshmen Bernard Key and Deante’ Lamar will also provide depth on the corners. Chambers has seen increased playing time as a member of the special team unit, while Key, Lamar and Ford gained valuable experience while redshirting in 2005. The Tigers could have some additional depth in the secondary with the addition of Malcolm Jones, Bryan Wright, Jon Cook and Turner West. Cook and West are local products, as Cook played at nearby Olive Branch High and West, the son of Coach Tommy West, prepped at Briarcrest Christian. Jones lettered at Straughn High in Gant, Ala., and Wright is a product of Northwestern High in Miami. “The secondary is another position where we have to be stronger,” said West. “We have a lot of talent there, but we have to be more consistent in defending receivers.”

SPECIAL TEAMS The Tigers will no doubt need to fill the shoes of kicker Stephen Gostkowski, who scored 101 points for the Tigers last season and leaves Memphis as the school’s all-time leading scorer and kicker. Gostkowski was so consistent and powerful the last two years that it was a given that he could be relied on even beyond 50 yards. That is one thing that will be missing at least

Brandon McDonald led Memphis with three interceptions and 11 pass breakups in 2005. He also returned punts for the Tigers.

Senior safety Wesley Smith has been selected to the All-C-USA first team the last three years.

recovery in 2005. Jackson saw most of his action as a true freshman with the special teams unit, and Thornton was redshirted in 2005 to add to the depth of 2006. Spurlock is a consistent player who appeared in 11 games last season. In his first collegiate start against Tennessee, he logged 10 tackles. Hinds played in 10 games and tallied six tackles, while Morrell saw action in six games and totaled one tackle. Grant had one of his best spring sessions and is a key defensive threat who logged 32 tackles and two fumble recoveries last season. Junior Rod Smith, who has lettered the last two seasons as a cat safety, is making the move to linebacker this season. Smith has speed and agility and worked with the linebackers this spring. He joins safety Wesley Smith as one of the top two returning tacklers from last season, having totaled 50 tackles. He also logged three and a half tackles for a loss of 10 yards and broke up two passes. “Linebacker has been an Achilles’ heel for us,” said West. “I have not been pleased with our linebacker play the last couple of years. We have to rush the passer better and we have to play coverage better. “Hopefully getting Quinton McCrary back will help,” added West. “Heath Grant rose up and had a good spring. He has to have a good fall. We can be OK there. It looks like we are going to be playing some young guys there, but I feel like we can be OK.” The Tigers could also have depth at linebacker with the addition of freshmen Jeremy Longstreet, Corderick Govan and Winston Bowens. Longstreet prepped at nearby Olive Branch High School, while Govan joins the Tigers from Charleston High in Cascilla, Miss. Bowen signed with the Tigers after a stellar career at North Clayton High in College Park, Ga.

early on this season – the comfort of the coaches knowing that they have someone to count on for points in clutch times. Three young players who have little or no game experience are expected to challenge for the spot this fall. Sophomores Trey Adams and Kittrell Smith both worked with the team last season and were competitive in the spring. Adams was called into action last season in the win over Chattanooga and converted his only PAT. Matt Reagan, who just completed his prep career at Bearden High in Knoxville, is one true freshman who is expected to challenge for playing time early this fall. The Tigers do have a veteran who has kicked in game situations for two seasons in senior Patrick Byrne. Though Byrne will also challenge for the quarterback slot in the fall, it would not be surprising to see him also booting kicks. In 2004, Byrne handled 87 kickoffs and sailed 39 of those kicks into the end zone. He averaged a depth to the 3-yard line in 2003 and 2004. Byrne is the only potential kicker with field experience heading into 2006. One special teams position where there are no doubts is punter. Memphis returns one of the nation’s top punters in senior Michael Gibson, who ended the year ranked 11th nationally with an average of 44.6 yards per kick. A second team selection on the 2005 All-C-USA team, Gibson should make a serious run for the Ray Guy Award in 2006 after having totaled 18 punts over 50 yards last season. He was instrumental in Memphis ranking third nationally as a team in net punting, and has received preseason AllC-USA recognition by The Sporting News and Blue Ribbon College Football Yearbook early this summer. “Though we need to find a kicker, we have a great punter returning in Michael Gibson,” said West. “He is great. I don’t say that much, but I was really impressed with how well Michael did last season.” Gibson is aided by veteran Rusty Clayton, who has started the last three seasons as the Tigers’ deep snapper. Clayton is highly con-

sistent, and has not muffed a single snap in his career for the kicking and punting teams, which includes 128 PATs, 78 field goals and 147 punts. Joe Burgan, a local walk-on from Germantown, has worked with Clayton the past season at deep snapper and will continue to do so in the fall. “Rusty is another steady player for our special teams,” said West. “He is very consistent and does his job each and every time he goes out on that field.” West sees that the special teams unit has improved over the last couple of years and admits that the one place he would like to see additional improvement is in kick returns. In 2005, newcomer Brandon McDonald handled all 32 of the Tigers’ punt returns, but averaged just 4.8 yards. His longest return last season was 15 yards as Memphis ranked 12th in the league in punt returns. The Tigers did somewhat better in kickoff returns as Joseph Doss handled a majority of the returns. Doss averaged 22.3 yards on 19 returns, with a season-long return of 35 yards. The Tigers ranked sixth in C-USA with an average of 20.2 yards per return. “We were very solid in kick coverage last year,” West stated. “Now we need to take it another step and get our return teams better.”

THE SCHEDULE Last season there was a lot of curiosity about the schedule because the Tigers had not previously faced four of the C-USA teams on the schedule as the league restructured in 2005. Now in 2006, the schedule is the same, with the exception of non-conference foe Arkansas State, which was added because of a 12-game schedule. West feels more comfortable now that his team has played UTEP, UCF, Marshall and Tulsa, and is even more excited about this season because the Tigers host four of the five other teams in the league that were bowl eligible in 2005. Memphis hosts Tulsa and UCF, which played for the league championship, as well as Houston and Southern Miss. The only bowl team from last year that Memphis will face on the road is UTEP, which the Tigers stunned with an upset win last season. In 2005, Memphis and Houston were the only two teams in C-USA to play all five of the other bowl eligible teams

in the league. Memphis boasted a 3-2 record over those foes and finished the league ranked second in the East Division. At press time, the Tigers are scheduled to appear on national television five times in 2006. ESPN announced that it was picking up the season opener with Ole Miss, the Sept. 30 meeting with Tennessee and the early November contest with Southern Miss. Both the Ole Miss (Sept. 3) and Southern Miss (Nov. 5) games were moved to Sunday to accommodate the ESPN broadcast. CSTV, which Memphis appeared on seven times last season, has picked the Oct. 21 meeting with Tulsa and the Nov. 11 meeting with UCF for its national schedule. In early August, the Tigers will gather once again in hopes of capitalizing on their talent and working towards a fourth-straight bowl game and a goal that West has set for his squad – a conference championship. West will challenge his Tigers to rise to the occasion and realize that there is no turning back for the program that has enjoyed increased success in each of the last three years.

20 COACHING STAFF

Tommy West, the former Clemson head football coach who came to Memphis in 2000 as defensive coordinator, was hired as the Tigers’ 21st head coach on November 30, 2000. The hiring has proven to be very beneficial for the U of M football program, as the popular coach has led the Tigers to a 24-13 record the last three years, as well as three-consecutive bowl appearances for the first time ever in Tiger football history. In just his last three years, West has turned the Tigers into a nationally-recognized program that is enjoying success unmatched by any previous U of M squad. The Gainesville, Ga., native helped snap a 32-year U of M bowl drought in 2003 when he led his squad to a 9-4 record, which included a victory over North Texas in the New Orleans Bowl. The last time that the U of M had been extended a bowl invitation was during the 1971 season when Memphis defeated San Jose State in the Pasadena Bowl. The 2003 season was viewed by many as “magical,” and the bowl victory propelled Memphis into the spotlight and gave the Tiger faithful a renewed spirit and heightened expectations. West became just the fourth coach in school history to claim nine wins in a single season, and for his efforts, he was named the Coach of the Year by the Tennessee Sports Writers Association. West and his Tigers embarked on the 2004 season knowing the bar had been raised and, with a veteran quarterback and an AllAmerican running back, expectations were going to remain high. The Tigers opened the 2004 campaign with a 5-1 record, marking the best start for a Memphis squad since 1967. During that time, West led the Tigers into the national spotlight as Memphis defeated Ole Miss for the second-straight season and was listed No. 25 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll. It was the first time ever that the Tigers were ranked by the national entity. Memphis also gained national attention as four of its last five games of the season were broadcast nationally by ESPN, including a Thursday night meeting with Louisville which was a battle to the end for both squads. A week after the Louisville game, the Tigers reached another milestone for the program as the U of M became bowl eligible with a win over Southern Miss. Memphis notched wins over East Carolina and USF on the road

before ending the regular season at 8-3. The eight wins marked the first time since the 1962 and 1963 seasons that Memphis had won eight or more games in back-to-back seasons, while the consecutive bowl appearances were also a first in the program’s history. West took his Tigers to Mobile, Ala., for the GMAC Bowl and dropped a hard-fought decision to Bowling Green. West has also generated major excitement in the city of Memphis for his Tigers. That was evident in 2004 when, despite the games being nationally-televised by ESPN, nearly 100,000 total fans turned out for the

final two home games of the season. The 52,384 fans that witnessed Memphis drop a hard-fought 56-49 decision to then-14th ranked Louisville on ESPN, and the 47,163 fans who watched Memphis become bowl eligible with a 30-26 win over Southern Miss on ESPN2 helped the Tigers set an attendance record at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. Memphis averaged 41,175 fans in its five home games, and the Louisville game marked the largest crowd to attend a Memphis game versus a non-Southeastern Conference opponent. The 2005 season started early with a press conference in January that led to the announcement that star running back DeAngelo Williams would return for his senior season. The cheers were deafening as coaches, administrators and fans celebrated Williams’ decision to remain a Tiger for 2005. With that announcement came a Heisman Trophy campaign for Williams with the blessing of West and his announcement that Williams was certainly a candidate for the prestigious award. The squad began practice in August and within weeks suffered what would become

one of many injuries that would try to put a damper on the season. Memphis lost leading receiver Mario Pratcher just prior to the start of the season to a knee injury. Later, the Tigers lost starting quarterbacks Patrick Byrne and Will Hudgens, as well as defensive lineman Rubio Phillips in the first three games of the season. By season’s end, Memphis had lost eight starters or potential starters, but was still fighting for a third bowl appearance behind the signal calling of senior “receiver-turnedquarterback” Maurice Avery. Avery became the fourth starting quarterback for the Tigers in the Houston game,

and newly-generated excitement has been a continued upswing in recruiting at the U of M. West and his staff continue to land more outstanding recruits from the Mid-South area, as well as some of the top prospects in Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana. A renowned national recruiter, West’s 2002, 2003 and 2004 classes were ranked among the top 50 in the country, while his 2005, 2004 and 2002 classes were touted as the No. 1 group in Conference USA. West and his staff also continue to tap into the local talent, and in the last two seasons, have signed 24 players from the Mid-South area. Heading into the 2006 season, West boasts 54 Tigers on the squad from Tennessee and an additional 23 players from Mississippi. West also continues to stress academics to his squad, and his Tigers have responded with some of the highest grade-point averages that the program has ever seen. In the spring 2005 semester, the football team placed a record number of student-athletes on the Tiger 3.0 Club, and the squad turned in the highest cumulative GPA ever with a 2.6. For the spring 2006 semester, the Tigers announced the most 3.0 students ever with 32, and for the 200506 school year, 62 Tigers had earned a

and led Memphis to a 5-2 record and a Motor City Bowl victory upon moving under center. The 2005 Tigers had every excuse in the book to quit and hope for a better 2006, but West and his coaching staff did a tremendous job of pulling the team together and keeping them on the right track. That determination paid off as Memphis finished with a winning record and a bowl invitation for the third consecutive season. Of the 117 Division I-A football programs, only 29 were playing in their third straight bowl game in 2005, and because of West, the Tigers were proud to say they were one of them. Memphis also celebrated its first span of three-consecutive winning seasons since 1992-94. Memphis has averaged eight wins in the last three seasons, and was one of just two teams in the league to face all five of the other C-USA teams that were bowl eligible. Several Tigers received post-season honors in 2005, including Williams, who was named the C-USA Offensive Player of the Year, and kicker Stephen Gostkowski, who was selected as the league’s Special Teams Player of the Year. Eight Tigers were selected to the All-C-USA teams, five of which were placed on the first-team squad. Williams was also named to several prestigious All-America teams and was a finalist for the 2005 Doak Walker Award. In addition, four Tiger seniors participated in post-season all-star games, which is another tribute to West and his staff. Both Gostkowski and Williams were invited to play in the 2006 Senior Bowl, while Tim Goodwell participated in the All-American Classic and Maurice Avery competed in the Hula Bowl. In just five seasons as the head c o a c h , We s t h a s turned around the Memphis football fortunes and has built a record of 32-28 while becoming the third-winningest coach, by winning percentage, at the U of M. He has also led Memphis to victory in 11 of its last 17 games away from Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, and his Tigers are 20-10 at home since he took over the reins. In the five years, 41 Tigers have been placed on the All-Conference USA Team, including Williams who was named the league’s Offensive Player of the Year for three-straight years. Also with West at the helm, eight Tigers have been drafted to play in the NFL, including Williams and Gostkowski in 2006. Williams was selected in the first round, while Gostkowski, a fourth-round pick, was the first kicker drafted in 2006. In addition, since 2001, 11 Tigers have been invited to participate in post-season all-star games. A by-product of the national attention

3.0 or higher. West continues to bring quality student-athletes to the campus as his last four recruiting classes have produced high marks in the classroom, and his 2003 freshman class amassed a cumulative GPA of 3.1 in its first fall semester at the U of M. By August, 2006, four Tigers (Rusty Clayton, Patrick Byrne, Sam Brewer and Wesley Smith) will have already earned a bachelor’s degree from the university. In addition, in seven of the last eight semesters, football has posted a 2.3 or higher team GPA. That is quite significant as from 1984-2002, football posted a 2.3 GPA in only two total semesters. West was hired in 1999 under Rip Scherer to serve as the defensive coordinator. Soon after the season opener against Mississippi State, West had his defense ranked in the top five nationally. The squad ranked as high as second in the nation during the year and finished the year ranked fifth nationally in total defense and No. 1 in rushing defense. That season, Memphis limited nine of its 11 opponents to less than 100 yards rushing and no team gained more than 125 yards against the Tigers in 2000. Also that year, the Tigers had five players named to the All-Conference USA first team defensive unit, which tied the C-USA record for the most players from one school ever named to a first team. Nose tackle Marcus Bell, defensive end Andre Arnold, linebacker Kamal Shakir, safety Idrees Bashir and corner Michael Stone all received first-team All-C-USA honors in 2000. Linebacker Coot Terry and corner Jason Brown were also named to the C-USA All-Freshman Team defensive unit. When the Tigers were in need of a new coach to guide the program, Athletic Director R.C. Johnson had to look no further than in the U of M football office. West was proven as a head coach at Clemson and was also a favorite of the players. He took over the program shortly after the 2000 season came to a close and set out to build a nationally-recognized program that would consistently win and would consistently play in bowl games. The Tigers struggled in 2001 and 2002

as would be expected for a program that had not seen a winning season since 1994. But, West was a relentless recruiter and managed to build a quality staff, which led to one of the biggest turnarounds nationally. The Tigers turned in a 3-9 record in 2002, and just one year later managed a 9-4 record and a bowl victory in 2003. With three-consecutive bowl appearances, Tiger fans are now chanting, “The Tradition Continues…” West, 52, joined the U of M staff after an extensive coaching career at Clemson University, where he had been an assistant coach from 1982-89 and the head coach from 1993-98. Following his start in the coaching profession when he served a season at Ole Miss (1979) and two seasons at Appalachian State (1980-81), West served as an assistant coach at Clemson and was responsible for the outside linebackers. He was part of a coaching staff that led the Tigers to a 69-20-4 record and six Associated Press Top 20 rankings between 1982-89. During that time, Clemson played in five bowl games, winning four, and claimed four ACC Championships. West left Clemson for his alma mater Tennessee in 1990 and spent one season as

the Vols’ running back coach. UT ended that season with a 9-2-2 record and defeated Virginia in the Sugar Bowl. West then traveled to the University of South Carolina, where he was the defensive coordinator in 1991 and 1992. Following his two seasons at USC, West accepted his first head coaching job at UTChattanooga. The Mocs were 4-7 in 1993, and shortly after their season ended, West was enticed to return to Clemson and coach the Tigers in the 2003 Peach Bowl. West was hired on November 29, 1993, and led the Tigers to a 14-13 victory over Kentucky in the Peach Bowl. With his debut in the Peach Bowl, West became the sixth coach in NCAA history to make his debut with a program in a bowl game. However, at that time, he was just the second coach in collegiate football history to make his debut in a bowl game without previously coaching his new team as an assistant coach earlier in the season. During his tenure at Clemson, West recruited the school’s all-time leading rusher, Raymond Priester; the school’s all-time leading passer, Nealon Greene; and the school’s all-time leading receiver, Rod Gardner. In addition to the offensive talent he

landed for the Tigers, West had two linebackers named to All-America Teams and both were drafted in the NFL. Anthony Simmons was named an All-American in 1996 and 1997 and was selected by the Seattle Seahawks. Keith Adams was drafted by the Tennessee Titans after enjoying All-America status in 1999 and 2000, and Gardner was a first-round selection by the Washington Redskins. Not only did West’s recruits excel on the field, they also excelled in the classroom. Over the last two years of his tenure (199899 and 1999-2000), Clemson’s football teams had a graduation rate of 75 percent, which ranked the school among the nation’s leaders in the classroom. West took Clemson to the Gator Bowl in 1995 and the Peach Bowl in both 1996 and 1997. At the time, only 16 programs in the nation could claim to have appeared in threeconsecutive bowl games. West also became just the second coach in Clemson history to take the Tigers to three-straight bowl games. He tallied a 31-28 record with the Tigers, be-

fore traveling to Memphis to take on another group of Tigers. As a player, West earned three letters in his four-year career at the University of Tennessee (1972-75). The Vols played in three bowl games and were ranked in a final Top 20 poll over the same three-year span. He was co-captain of Tennessee’s 1975 football team and played in the Blue-Gray All-Star Game that same year. He began his college career as a running back, but saw most of his playing time as a tight end. He caught 37 passes for 575 yards in his UT career, including 16 passes for 233 yards as a senior. As a junior, he caught an 81yard pass from Condredge Hollaway, still the longest non-scoring play in Tennessee football history. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee in 1976 and was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that same year. West also played two seasons of baseball for the Volunteers (1974-1975) and had a career batting average of .305. He hit .367 in 1975 and was named All-Southeastern

Conference Eastern Division. West began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Tennessee in 1977. He left the Volunteers and coached one year of high school football at White County High in Sparta, Tenn., in 1978 before being hired as an assistant coach at Ole Miss in 1979. West was a multi-sport standout at Gainesville High School in Gainesville, Ga. He was an outfielder in baseball, a guard in basketball and a running back in football. In 1972, he was named a high school All-American in football and was a second round draft choice in baseball by the Chicago Cubs organization. Willie Randolph, who went on to an All-Star career with the New York Yankees, was one of the 77 future Major League players drafted after West in the regular phase of the June 1972 draft. Born Thomas Cleveland West on July 31, 1954, in Carrollton, Ga., he is married to the former Lindsay Watkins of Forest City, N.C. The couple has one son, Turner, who is a freshman on the Tiger football team.

24 COACHING STAFF Clay Helton, who was promoted to Assistant Head Coach in February 2004, is in his seventh year as a member of the Tiger coaching staff. He is responsible for the daily instruction of the receiving corps, and also serves as the Tigers’ recruiting coordinator. Helton had his work cut out for him last year as his receiving corps suffered injuries and personnel changes that left him with a younger, inexperienced group to work with. Prior to the start of the season, veteran Mario Pratcher suffered a season-ending knee injury. Next, Memphis lost its two starting quarterbacks to broken legs by the third game of the season, which meant that then-leading receiver Maurice Avery would have to take over signal-calling duties. Helton refocused his troops and got great production from veteran wideouts Ryan Scott and Taz Knockum, as well as freshmen Maurice Jones, Earnest Williams, Carlton Robinzine and Antonio McCoy. Jones was eventually named to the C-USA All-Freshman Team. With all but Avery returning in 2006, Helton will once again have a deep receiving corps that should keep opposing defenses on their toes. Helton’s 2004 Tiger receivers accounted for 25 touchdowns and 3,086 yards receiving, and were part of an offensive unit that ranked second in Conference USA in total

offense. The Tiger offense also ranked second in the league in scoring and ninth nationally in total offense. One of the veterans of the Tiger coaching staff, Helton worked with the running backs during his first two seasons on staff before moving to receivers in 2003. At the time, Helton inherited a depleted receiving corps and coached the group to one of its better seasons in years. Known for his teaching abilities, Helton’s receivers responded by setting school marks for receptions (260) and yardage (3,419) in 2003. Helton’s first Tiger turnaround came in the fall of 2000. He played a huge role in the development of several young Tiger running backs, including Jeff “Sugar” Sanders, Darche’ Epting, Aaron Meadows and Jeremiah Bonds, all of whom saw regular playing time for the Tigers that season. In his second season, Helton was responsible for the success of junior college transfer Dante Brown. Brown was a late arrival in the Tiger camp and Helton spent numerous hours working to prepare him for the opening game of the 2001 season. Brown responded to Helton’s tutelage by rushing for the fourth-highest single-season total in school history (902 yards) and setting a Memphis record for rushing touchdowns in a game with four against Houston. In 2002, Helton helped a freshman name

DeAngelo Williams lead the nation in average yards per carry for four weeks of that season. Williams was second in the nation in average yards per carry after 11 weeks and finished the season tied for fifth in the country with 6.6 yards per carry. He later went on to set nearly every UM rushing, scoring and all-purpose yard record and was selected in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft. Helton, the son of former University of Houston head coach Kim Helton, also coached at Houston (1997-99) before arriving on the U of M campus. While at UH, he coached the Cougar running backs for three seasons, and was responsible in 1997 for the development of All-Conference USA performer Ketric Sanford, who combined with Vaughn Innis to rush for over 1,200 yards. In 1998, Sanford placed second among all C-USA backs in all-purpose yards with 1,530 and rushed for over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career. A native of Sugarland, Texas, Helton played quarterback for Houston in 1993 and 1994, after transferring from Auburn University. While playing for the Auburn Tigers in 1991, Helton received All-Academic Southeastern Conference honors. He was voted one of Houston’s team captains in 1994. Following graduation from Houston, Helton entered the coaching profession as a member of Fred Goldsmith’s staff at Duke University. He worked as a graduate assistant for Duke in 1995 and was hired as the Blue Devils’ running backs coach in 1996. While in Durham, N.C., Helton helped to develop a Duke running game that featured Laymarr Marshall, who tallied 13 touchdowns. The 13 touchdowns were the secondhighest single-season total in school history. Helton, 34, earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics and interdisciplinary science from Houston in 1994. He and his wife, Angela, have three children: sons Reid and Turner, and daughter, Aubrey. He is the brother of tight ends coach Tyson Helton, who joined the Tiger coaching staff in 2004.

Williams led the Tigers again offensively, and ended the season ranked No. 1 nationally in rushing and No.4 in all-purpose yards. He finished his storied career as the NCAA record holder in all-purpose yards and 100-yard games (34). He also ended his career ranked fourth all-time in NCAA history in rushing yards with 6,026. Offensively, the last four seasons have been big ones for the Tigers and rank in the top five all-time in the record book. The 2002 squad set a record for total offense with 4,258 yards, and then the 2003 team shattered that mark with 5,779 yards of total offense. In 2004, the Tigers amassed 5,524 yards of total offense to rank second all-time. The 2004 Tigers also set school records in points scored with 430 and in passing touchdowns with 25. Even with so many injuries during the 2005 season, Fichtner’s offense managed 4,775 yards and 326 points. Each of the last four years since Fichtner came on board, the Tigers have improved in points per game. The 2004 GMAC Bowlbound Tigers averaged 35.9 points per contest, which was up from the 2003 mark of 30.2 points per game and the 2002 mark of 25.3 points per game.

Randy Fichtner, who instituted the spread offense at Memphis, is entering his sixth season as an integral part of the Tiger football team. He was hired by Tommy West in 2001 to serve as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, and his offense has rewritten the Memphis record book the last four seasons. Under Fichtner’s direction, former Tiger quarterback Danny Wimprine emerged as one of the top passers in C-USA in 2003. Wimprine, who had set the Memphis record for passing yards by a freshman (1,329) and for the number of touchdown passes thrown (14) by a first-year player, became the first Tiger quarterback to throw for more than 3,000 yards in a single season in 2003. He completed his career in 2004 having thrown for over 10,000 yards and 81 touchdowns. He holds numerous Tiger records, and was named to the Conference USA second team following his senior season. In 2004, the Tiger offense received much attention heading into the season with a veteran quarterback, an All-American running back in DeAngelo Williams, a seasoned offensive line and a deep receiving corps. That offense lived up to the billing and finished the year ranked ninth nationally in total offense, and 10th in the nation in scoring. Wimprine ranked 26th nationally in total offense and was 27th in points responsible for and 28th in passing. Williams set numerous records for the Tigers and finished his junior season ranked third nationally in rushing. He was also ranked second in the country in all-purpose yards and scoring, and was honored by several entities as an All-American. Williams, who was heavily recruited by Fichtner, was a Heisman Trophy candidate in 2005. In 2005, Fichtner’s talent was heavily tested as the Tigers lost their two starting quarterbacks by the third game of the season. Fichtner had to

coordinator in August of 1997. During his tenure with the Indians, Fichtner worked with quarterback Cleo Lemon, who set virtually every Arkansas State passing and total offense record. Lemon became Arkansas State’s all-time leading passer as a junior and added to his totals during the 2000 season. Prior to joining the staff at ASU, Fichtner spent three years at his alma mater, Purdue University, serving as wide receiver coach and recruiting coordinator from 1994-96. The Cleveland, Ohio, native originally came to Memphis in the fall of 1990 under Stobart and coached the Tiger receivers and quarterbacks for four seasons. During his stay at the U of M, Fichtner worked with such noted receivers and quarterbacks as Steve Matthews, Keith Benton, Russell Copeland, Mac Cody and St. Louis Rams All-Pro wide receiver Isaac Bruce. While at Memphis, Fichtner’s Tiger offense set 44 records and produced back-to-back 6-5 records, marking the first consecutive winning seasons in almost 20 years. Matthews set numerous Tiger single-game passing records, and in just 20 contests with the U of M, became the school’s third all-time leading passer with 3,980 yards. Matthews went on to an NFL career with the Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans. Fichtner, 42, worked as a student assistant and graduate assistant at Purdue (1985-86) and at Michigan (1986-87), before joining Stobart as a volunteer coach at USC in 1988. He landed his first full-time position in 1989 as the tight end coach at UNLV and worked for the Rebels for one season before coming to Memphis with Stobart. Fichtner graduated from Purdue in 1985 with a bachelor’s degree in health promotion. He is married to the former Jennifer Parker of Covington, Tenn., and the couple has three children: a son, Nathaniel Ross, and daughters, Shelby Brooke and Kirby Lynn.

Rick Mallory is entering his seventh season as the Tigers’ offensive line coach. His offensive line has received much recognition the last three years, clearing the way for AllAmerican tailback DeAngelo Williams. Well known for his teaching style, Mallory’s offensive line is well disciplined and consistently strong each season. In the past two years, the Tigers have only given up 14 sacks, including just five in 2004. This past season, the Tigers ranked fifth nationally in rushing offense, which is a credit to the offensive line. Starting guard Andrew Handy was named to the firstteam All-Conference USA squad, and right tackle Brandon Pearce was selected to the C-USA All-Freshman Team. Memphis also finished the season ranked sixth in C-USA in total offense. Mallory’s squad led Conference USA in 2004 for its impressive sack denial and was part of an offense that ranked ninth nationally in total offense. The Tigers were also second in C-USA in scoring, third in passing and second in rushing – clearly a by-product of a veteran offensive line that saw marked improvement. In 2003 and 2004, veteran center Gene Frederic was a candidate for the Rimington Trophy. He was also named to the All-Conference USA first-team in 2004, while tackle Jeremy Rone was selected to

the league’s second-team. In 2003, the Tiger line allowed just 12 sacks, and went three-straight games without quarterback Danny Wimprine being dropped for a loss. Blake Butler, who has been a consistent starter for the Tigers, was a C-USA All-Freshman Team pick in 2003. Frederic and Rone were also third-team All-CUSA picks in 2003. Mallory is also credited with guiding the development of former Tiger starter Wade Smith. Mallory helped Smith make the move from tight end to an offensive tackle slot and Smith responded by rapidly moving into a starter’s position. In April of 2002, Smith was a third round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins. A native of Renton, Wash., Mallory joined the Memphis staff in May of 2000, and remained as a member of the coaching staff when Tommy West was elevated to head coach in 2001. He had previously spent five seasons at the University of Washington, where he worked with four players (Mark Bruener, Ernie Conwell, Cameron Cleeland, Jeremy Brigham) that were selected in the NFL Draft. Mallory, who was a graduate assistant coach responsible for tackles, tight ends and the kicking

game in 1992 and 1993, took over as a fulltime coach for the Huskies midway through the 1993 season when Myles Corrigan was sidelined due to a heart condition. Working with the tight ends, Mallory was fortunate to have Mark Bruener leading his position for a year-and-a-half. Bruener became the Huskies’ all-time leader in receptions by a tight end, was named first-team All-Pac 10 twice and was selected in the first round of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. As a rookie, Bruener started in the 1996 Super Bowl. In 1996, Mallory had Ernie Conwell take over as the starter, and he went on to receive first team All-Pac 10 honors. Conwell was taken by the St. Louis Rams in the second round of the draft. In 1997, Mallory’s tight end claimed All-Pac 10 honors for the third-consecutive season. Cameron Cleeland picked up allleague honors and was later chosen by the New Orleans Saints in the NFL Draft. The Huskies’ second tight end, Jeremy Brigham, was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the third round. Mallory was a Husky tight end himself as a freshman and sophomore, before moving to offensive guard prior to his junior year (1982). A three-year letterman, he went on to earn All-Pac 10 honors and All-Coast honors as a senior in 1983 when he served as team captain. In the 1984 NFL Draft, he was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a ninth round pick and went on to play five seasons in the NFL. Mallory, 45, earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington in 1983. He and his wife, Shannon, have three sons, Ryan, Adam and Cameron, and a daughter, Naomi.

COACHING STAFF 27

Tommie Robinson is one of the newest members of the Tiger coaching staff. He was hired in March, along with assistant coach Kenny Ingram. A seasoned coach, Robinson came to Memphis following a four-year stint as an assistant at Georgia Tech. He replaces Jeep Hunter, serving as the on-field coach for the running backs. He also will act as the liaison between the coaching staff and NFL scouts, particularly during pro timing days on the U of M campus. Robinson will have his work cut out for him as he joins an offense that has amassed great success over the last three years. Though the loss of Heisman Tro-

phy candidate DeAngelo Williams leaves outsiders with some questions about the future of the running game, Robinson inherits seasoned backs Joseph Doss and Jamarcus Gaither, as well as redshirt freshmen T.J. Pitts and Miguel Barnes. Robinson coached wide receivers at Georgia Tech for one season before converting to the tight ends coach. In 2003, Robinson coached honorable mention all-conference tight end John Paul Foschi, the Jackets’ third-leading receiver, and Darius Williams. Foschi is currently playing for the Oakland Raiders, while Williams is with the Detroit Lions. Robinson arrived at Tech in 2002, reuniting with Tech head coach Chan Gailey for whom he played for at Troy State and worked under as an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys. During the 2002 season, Robinson worked with standout receivers Kerry Watkins and Will Glover, who both finished among the top five receivers in Georgia Tech history. Watkins earned All-ACC honors. The veteran coach spent the 2001 season as the running backs coach at Oklahoma State, where he worked with Tatum Bell. He then served three years as an offensive assistant with the NFL’s Cowboys, working with wide receivers and special teams. While in Dallas, he worked with such noted NFL greats as Deion Sanders, Emmitt Smith and

Michael Irvin. Prior to his time in Dallas, Robinson spent four seasons at TCU (1994-97) and two at Utah State (1992-93) as a fulltime assistant. While he was at TCU, he worked with LaDainian Tomlinson, who has played for the San Diego Chargers the last five years. Robinson, 43, began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Arkansas. He has also served NFL coaching internships at New Orleans, St. Louis, Dallas and Miami. A native of Phenix City, Ala., Robinson played for Gailey at Troy State, where he was a part of the 1984 Division II national championship team. He was a three-year starter as a strong safety for the Trojans and served as team captain. Robinson earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice in 1985. After pursuing professional football, he coached on the high school level, including four years (1987-90) at his alma mater, Central High, in Phenix City, Ala. Robinson and his wife, Lartonyar, have three children, Dantrell, Tawanda and Trey.

Tyson Helton was hired by Tommy West as the Tiger special teams and tight ends coach in March of 2004. He was charged with improving the special teams unit, as well as continuing to develop veteran tight end John Doucette. In the last two seasons, he has done just that and enters his third season with high expectations. In 2005, Memphis kicker Stephen Gostkowski was responsible for nearly one-third of the team’s scoring and was named the C-USA Special Teams Player of the Year. Gostkowski consistently improved under Helton’s guidance and ranked fifth nationally in field goals and 26th in scoring. He also ended his career as Memphis’ all-time leading scorer with 369 points and holds Tiger records in field goals and PATs. He was the first kicker selected in the 2006 NFL Draft, taken by the New England Patriots in the fourth round. In addition, the Tiger punting game was on track with the addition of transfer Michael Gibson. Gibson, who booted 18 punts over 50 yards, was a second-team All-C-USA selection and finished the season ranked 11th nationally. The Tigers as a team ranked third nationally in net punting. In his first season with the Tigers, the punt return unit improved from averaging 7.8 yards per return in 2003 to a mark of 10.3 yards per return in 2004. That same

season, Gostkowski was a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award, and improved from 65 percent in field goals made in 2003 to an impressive 83 percent made in 2004. He improved that mark again in 2005, hitting 88 percent of his field goals. Helton, the brother of Memphis assistant head coach Clay Helton and the son of former Houston head coach Kim Helton, had just completed his fourth season as a member of June Jones’ Hawaii staff before accepting the position with Memphis. He arrived on the Manoa campus in 2000 as a graduate assistant, and was primarily responsible for the Warrior special teams during his tenure. In 2001, Helton’s first season as a full-time coach, the Warriors led the nation in kickoff return yardage and broke the NCAA record for highest average gain per return (30.3). Under Helton’s direction, return specialist/wide receiver Chad Owens tied the NCAA record with two kick returns for a touchdown in a game. He became the seventh player in NCAA history and the first in Western Athletic Conference history to return two kicks for touchdowns in a game, scoring on kickoff and punt returns against Brigham Young on Dec. 8, 2001. In addition, Owens broke the NCAA record for most yards gained on kick returns with 342 (249 kickoff, 93 punt return) against the Cougars.

The Warriors averaged 21.4 yards on kickoff returns in 2002 and were ranked fifth in the WAC and 36th in the nation. Punter Mat McBriar, who is in his third season with the Dallas Cowboys, averaged 43.7 yards per punt and finished his career ranked second on UH’s all-time punting list, averaging 42.22 yards. Although the Warriors were likely to gamble on fourth down in 2002, place-kicker Justin Ayat ranked fourth in the WAC and 49th nationally in field goals, averaging 1.07 per game. As a group, the Warriors ranked fifth in the WAC, converting 65 percent of their field goal attempts. In three seasons as a full-time coach, Helton produced three All-WAC performers in Owens, Ayat and McBriar. Ayat also earned first-team Freshman All-America honors from Football News in 2001. Helton grew up surrounded by football in Gainesville, Fla. His father was a college coach at Florida, Miami and Houston, and also with several NFL teams, including Tampa Bay, Miami and Houston. Helton’s playing career began at an early age, but contact was limited until he was a high school freshman. His talents landed him a scholarship at Houston, where he was a backup quarterback for his father. Helton, 29, earned his bachelor’s degree in business at Houston in 1999 after a four-year career with the Cougars. He and his wife, April, have two daughters, Shelby Grace (3) and Presley, who was born this past summer.

date Quinton McCrary (LB) also missed a majority of the season because of various injuries. Dunn continued to shuffle the defense throughout the season, and while the Tigers did give up some passing yardage to the opponents, they did manage to hold six opponents below 100 yards rushing. For the year, the Tigers led C-USA and ranked 27th nationally in rushing defense, and was 36th in the country in scoring defense. Safety Wesley Smith was named a first-team pick on the All-C-USA team for the third straight season and defensive lineman Marcus West also landed on the first team. Dunn came to the U of M after having served as the defensive coordinator at Mississippi State University from 1996 through 2002. For seven seasons, Dunn directed a Bulldog defense that was consistently ranked among the nation’s elite. During the 2001 season, the Bulldog defense held three opponents to 21 points or less, and his 2000 MSU defense was ranked second in the SEC and 13th nationally in rushing defense and scored an amazing eight touchdowns. The 1999 Bulldog defense led the nation in both rushing and total defense and was fourth in pass efficiency defense. Mississippi State finished sixth in scoring defense and allowed just 222.55 yards per game in total defense. Dunn was a finalist for the Broyles Award, which is presented annually to the nation’s top assistant coach. When Dunn arrived at Mississippi State, the defense ranked near the bottom of the SEC in nearly every defensive category, but with each passing season, his units showed improvement. In 1998, State’s defensive unit featured the SEC regular-season sack leader in end Edward Smith, who registered 12 quarterback sacks. MSU was the last Division 1-A defense in the nation to allow a touchdown through the air in 1998 and scored five defensive touchdowns throughout the campaign. The defense helped MSU win the Western Division title and gain a berth in the SEC Championship Game. In 1996, Dunn’s defense broke the school record for quarterback sacks in a single season with 39.

Joe Lee Dunn, who served as defensive coordinator for the University of Memphis football team from 1989-91, returned to the Tigers in the same capacity in the spring of 2003. He was hired by Tommy West to take over and reconstruct the Tiger defense, and lived up to the task, moving the Memphis defense from near the bottom of the NCAA rankings to a top-10 finish in 2003. The U of M, which was ranked 101st in the nation in rushing defense and 57th overall in 2002, climbed to 18th in rushing defense, 19th in pass defense and ninth in total defense in 2003. Memphis also ranked second in Conference USA in scoring defense, second in rush defense, third in pass defense and first in total defense, allowing just 295.8 yards per game. Five members of Dunn’s defensive unit received All-Conference USA honors in 2003, including free safety Wesley Smith who was named to the first team. In 2004, the Tiger defensive unit ranked fourth in Conference USA in rushing defense and seventh in total defense. Several individuals ranked in the top 10 in the league, including Dustin Lopez who ranked third in interceptions and third in passes defended; Tim Goodwell who was eighth in tackles and led the league in fumbles recovered; and Quinton McCrary and Marcus West who were ninth and 10th in sacks, respectively. Four members of the Tiger defense received All-Conference USA honors in 2004, as Wesley Smith was a first-team pick, and Marcus West and Albert Means were selected to the second team. Linebacker Greg Hinds was named to the C-USA All-Freshman squad. In 2005, Dunn’s defensive unit struggled with consistency because of injuries that forced personnel changes throughout the season. Defensive linemen Rubio Phillips and Van Houston were expected to anchor the line with Marcus West, but Phillips was sidelined after the first game of the season, and a knee injury kept Houston off the field the entire season.

Prior to his arrival at Mississippi State, Dunn served one year as defensive coordinator at Arkansas, where his Razorback unit finished first in the SEC and fifth nationally against the run. He helped lead Arkansas to the 1995 SEC Western Division title. Dunn went to Arkansas following three seasons at Ole Miss, the first two as defensive coordinator and the final as interim head coach. While at Ole Miss, he lifted the Rebels’ defense among the nation’s best. Ole Miss finished sixth, first and 17th nationally in total defense during Dunn’s stay. A native of Columbus, Ga., Dunn arrived at Ole Miss after spending three years retooling the Memphis defense. From 1989 through 1991, Dunn served as a Tiger graduate assistant coach for one year and as defensive coordinator for his final two campaigns. Under Dunn’s direction, the Tiger defense put together some pretty impressive statistics in the early 1990s. The 1990 unit, which was competing against teams like Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Florida State and Southern Miss, was ranked among the nation’s top 50 in rush defense (31st), pass defense (41st), scoring defense (39th) and total defense (45th). While taking on such noted opponents as Southern Cal, Ole Miss, Missouri, Mississippi State, Alabama and Tennessee in 1991, the Tigers were ranked 54th in rush defense, 57th in total defense and 49th in scoring defense. In 1987 and 1988, Dunn served as defensive coordinator at the University of South Carolina. In 1987, the Gamecocks were one of just three teams to finish among the nation’s top five in all major defensive categories. Immediately prior to entering the SEC, Dunn spent seven years at the University of New Mexico, the last four as the school’s head coach. He began his collegiate coaching career with a nine-year stint at his alma mater UT-Chattanooga, an institution which later inducted him into its Athletic Hall of Fame in 1992. Dunn, 60, graduated from UT-Chattanooga in 1968 with a degree in education and mathematics. He and his wife, Susie, have three children: daughters, Kacey and Ashley, and a son, Joseph Levi Jr.

Tim Keane is entering his fifth season with the Tiger football program after joining the staff in January of 2002. The program’s secondary coach, Keane has helped lead a unit that allowed just 185.4 yards per game passing, ranking third in Conference USA, in 2003. The 2003 secondary was credited with 10 of the team’s 11 pass interceptions and had two players named to the league’s all-conference team, led by first-team honoree Wesley Smith and third-team pick Scott Vogel. Smith was again named a first-team pick on the All-C-USA squad in 2004, after ranking third on the team in tackles and totaling one pick. Junior college transfer Dustin Lopez entered the starting lineup in the seventh game of the season, and finished the year ranked third in C-USA in interceptions and pass breakups. In 2005, the Tiger secondary was credited with 11 interceptions and 52 pass breakups. Junior Brandon McDonald tied for the league lead in passes defended with 14, and safety Wesley Smith was a first-team AllC-USA pick for the third-straight year. During his first year with the Tigers, Keane was instrumental in the development of such young defensive backs as Vogel and O.C. Collins, who both developed into starters in 2002. Collins was named to two Freshman All-America teams that year. Prior to joining West in Memphis, Keane spent four seasons (1997-2000) at Kentucky. Keane coached the cornerbacks from 1997 until 1999 and took over the entire secondary during the 2000 season. He was instru-

mental in the development of numerous cornerbacks, including Eric Kelly who tied a UK record with 13 pass breakups during the 1999 season and also logged three pass interceptions. Keane also took former running back Kenneth Grant and turned him into a defensive back who started every game and recorded seven pass breakups in 1999. In 1998, the veteran defensive coach took wide receiver Marvin Lowe and converted him to cornerback. Lowe notched 10 pass breakups, the third-highest season total in Kentucky history. Keane’s secondary limited opponents to a completion rate of just 48.8 percent in 1998, marking the first time in nearly 10 years that Kentucky held opponents under 50 percent passing. A native of Linden, N.J., Keane went to Kentucky after coaching the defensive backs at Louisiana Tech for three seasons (1994-96). There, he helped develop AllAmerica cornerback Willie Smith, who led the nation in interceptions in 1995 and was also a two-year All-Big West Conference selection. As a team, Tech improved from 3-8 to 6-5 during Keane’s three campaigns. Prior to his stay at Louisiana Tech, Keane coached the secondary at Tennessee from 1990-1992. Tennessee posted a 27-8-2 record during that time, won the 1990 SEC Championship and played in the Sugar, Fiesta and Hall of Fame Bowls. During the 1990 season, Keane worked with a young running back coach on the Tennessee staff, Tommy West. Safety Dale Carter was a consensus All-American in 1991 and a two-year All-SEC

choice. Cornerback Jeremy Lincoln was a first-team All-SEC pick in 1991. Both Lincoln and Carter went on to play in the NFL. Keane also helped to develop safety Jason Parker, who was named to the Freshman All-SEC Team in 1992. For 18 seasons prior to coaching at Tennessee, Keane coached at his alma mater, Arkansas State University. He began as receiver and quarterback coach in 1972 and moved to the secondary in 1974. He later became defensive coordinator and served in that capacity from 1981 through 1989. Under Keane’s guidance as the coordinator, ASU led Division 1-AA in total defense in 1985, and his 1988 unit led Division 1-AA in turnover ratio. Arkansas State advanced to the 1-AA playoffs from 1984-87 and finished as the national runner-up in 1986. Six of his Arkansas State defensive backs went on to play in the National Football League. Keane, who was a three-year letterman at quarterback at Arkansas State from 1965-67, earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education. Following graduation in 1968, he began his coaching career at the junior high level. He was an assistant football coach at Little Rock High School in 1970-71, before returning to ASU to earn a master’s degree in physical education in 1973. He was inducted into the Arkansas State Hall of Fame in 2005. Keane, 61, is married to the former Carolyn Pesce of Memphis. The couple has seven children-Jerry, Chandra, Ashley, Ross, Brad, Brooke and Ben.

Combine, and was selected to play in the East-West Shrine Game. In 2002, Boller inherited a defensive line that had lost Means for the season and had very little depth or experience. Under Boller’s guidance, linemen such as Tony Brown and Eric Taylor developed into steady benchmarks for the defense, and went on to play in the NFL. No stranger to the Mid-South, Boller left a two-year stint in private business and returned to Memphis in 2000 to coach the defensive line for the XFL’s Memphis Maniax with former Tiger player and coach Kippy Brown. A native of Belmond, Iowa, Boller coached the Dallas Cowboys’ defensive front from 1995 through 1997. Working with such noted players as Leon Lett and Chad Hennings, Boller helped improve the Dallas rush defense from 16th in the NFL in 1995 to ninth in 1996. The Cowboys held seven opponents to under 100 yards rushing, including four teams under 65 yards. The improved run defense helped the Cowboys’ defense maintain the top defensive ranking in the NFL throughout much of 1996, before finishing the year as the third-ranked defense in the league. In 1995, Boller started the season as a defensive assistant, working closely with defensive coordinator Dave Campo. He took over the defensive line duties in the postseason as the Cowboys marched to the Super Bowl title. Dallas’ defensive line accounted for 12 sacks during those three playoff games, the most sacks over a three-

Craig Boller is entering his fifth season as the Tigers’ defensive line coach. He was hired by Tommy West in January of 2002 and given the task of improving on 2002’s 101stranked rushing defense. Boller responded by molding the U of M defensive front into one of the league’s best, allowing just 110.4 yards per game. The Tigers moved from last in the league in rushing defense in 2002 to second in 2003. Memphis also jumped in the national stats from 2002 to 2003, improving from 101st in 2002 to 18th in 2003. The Tigers finished the 2003 campaign ranked 19th nationally in pass defense and ninth in total defense. Last season, Boller had to make several adjustments to his defensive front because of various injuries. As a result, the Tigers led Conference USA, and was ranked 27th nationally in rushing defense. Boller’s group helped the Tigers to limit six opponents to under 100 yards rushing, and accounted for eight sacks. Defensive lineman Marcus West was named a first-team pick on the All-C-USA squad after logging 43 tackles and three sacks. In 2004, Memphis ranked seventh in the league in total defense, and two players were listed as All-Conference USA honorees. West and Albert Means were both named second-team All-C-USA, and Means was named the team’s Defensive Player of the Year at the post-season banquet. Means was also invited to participate in the NFL

game span for Dallas since the first three games of the 1994 season. Before joining the staff at Dallas in 1995, Boller spent eight years as the defensive line coach at Iowa State. Prior to coaching the Cyclones, Boller was an assistant at Oregon State from 1980-86. He was on the same Beavers’ staff with Cowboy’s defensive coordinator Dave Campo, special teams coach Joe Avezzano and tight ends coach Robert Ford. Boller was a member of the U of M (then Memphis State University) staff under Richard Williamson for two seasons in 1978-79. During that period of time, he coached such Tiger linemen as Keith Clark, Rick Ackerman and Stanley Adams, all of whom played in the NFL, as well as Wayne Weedon, Ben Howard and Pete Scatamacchia. Prior to his arrival in Memphis, Boller worked as a part-time assistant at Tennessee under head coach Johnny Majors. The Iowa State graduate began his coaching career as an assistant coach at Knoxville High School from 1971-73. He moved to William Penn College (Iowa) in 1974. The Statesmen posted a 30-3 record during the time Boller was a member of the coaching staff, including an 8-2 mark and a Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title in 1976 when he served as head coach for WPC. Boller, 58, was a three-year letterman at Iowa State as a defensive tackle, and earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from ISU in 1970. He has two daughters, Valerie and Kimberly, and is married to the former Jane Lobenstein.

OLE MISS 10, MEMPHIS 6 SEPT. 5, 2005 • MEMPHIS, TENN.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Add another exciting chapter to the Memphis-Ole Miss football rivalry. The Rebels took the lead in the third quarter, and then held off a furious late-game Tiger drive to secure a 10-6 defensive struggle victory. Both defenses played a superb game, limiting each offense to under 300 total yards. And it was the defense that set up the Rebels’ go-ahead score and eventually sealed the win for Ole Miss. It was also Memphis’ defense that gave the Tigers their opportunities to win the contest. Midway through the third quarter, Memphis took over on its own 24 yard line with a 6-3 lead. Redshirt freshman quarterback Will Hudgens, who had replaced the injured Patrick Byrne in the first half, went back to pass, and Ole Miss’ Trumaine McBride picked off Hudgens’ attempt and returned it to the Memphis 17 yard line. With the Rebels threatening, the Tiger defense nearly pulled off a tremendous stop. Ole Miss gained only five yards on its first two plays, and the Rebels threw an incompletion on third down. Faced with a 4th-and-5 and having missed its last two field goal attempts, Ole Miss decided to go for it. Rebel quarterback Micheal Spurlock, though, hit paydirt on a broken play from 12 yards out. The score put Ole Miss ahead 10-6 with 5:45 to go in the third quarter. The Tigers had a couple of opportunities to regain the lead in the fourth quarter, thanks to the defense. After the Tiger defense stopped another Rebel drive, the Memphis offense took over on its own 35 yard line with 5:08 left. The Tigers had driven to the Ole Miss 37 yard line when Maurice Avery fumbled the ball. The Rebels recovered the loose ball, and with only 2:31 remaining, it looked as if the Tigers had run out of chances. The Memphis defense, though, was not done. The Tigers held Ole Miss to three-and-out, and after a punt and short return, Memphis had the ball at midfield with 1:32 left in the game. Two rushes -- one by DeAngelo Williams and one by Hudgens -- picked up the first down at the Ole Miss 40 yard line. Hudgens then hit Avery for a 19-yard gain to the Rebel 21. After the next three plays netted only two yards, the Tigers faced a 4th-and-8 with :36 left. Hudgens kept the drive alive when he hit Ryan Scott with an 11-yard pickup to the Ole Miss eight yard line. Williams gained two yards on first-and-goal. After an Ole Miss timeout, the Tigers looked for the end zone, but Hudgens’ pass was intercepted by Garry Pack, ending the Memphis hopes of a come-from-behind win. The way the game started gave no indica-

tion of the defensive battle the remainder of the game would become. The Rebels took the opening kickoff down the field and scored a field goal for a 3-0 lead in the game’s first two minutes. On the ensuing possession, adversity struck the Tigers early. On the third offensive play, Byrne, who had been Danny Wimprine’s back-up the last three seasons, suffered a broken leg and is out for the 2005 campaign. Hudgens took over the Tiger offense and completed 15-of-28 attempts for 145 yards. Memphis tied the contest at 3-3 on a Stephen Gostkowski field goal at the 2:08 mark in the first quarter. Gostkowski gave the Tigers a 6-3 lead in the second quarter on a 47-yard field goal. Williams rushed for 85 yards on 24 carries. He also had two receptions for 14 yards. Spurlock was 14-of-27 passing for 184 yards, and his favorite target was Mario Hill, who caught eight passes for 132 yards. For a second-straight year, the Memphis defense held the Rebels to under 60 yards rushing (55 yards in 2005; 58 yards in 2004). The Tiger defense also had five sacks and two interceptions. OLE MISS

MEMPHIS 59, CHATTANOOGA 14 SEPT. 17, 2005 • MEMPHIS, TENN. on 20 carries, opened the second half scoring with a two-yard touchdown run for Chattanooga. The Mocs, however, would not mount another scoring threat. Avery, who had a touchdown reception in the first half, hit paydirt via the ground to give Memphis a 42-14 lead. A Stephen Gostkowski 30yard field gave the Tigers a 45-14 lead going into the final period. Barefield, who entered the game late in the third quarter, hit Brett Russell from 26 yards out for a 52-14 Tiger advantage. The scoring hookup was Barefield’s first collegiate touchdown pass and Russell’s first collegiate touchdown reception. The scoring was completed with 4:06 left in the contest when Jamarcus Gaither found the end zone from 11 yards out for the 5914 final. It was Gaither’s first career rushing touchdown, and Trey Adams followed with his first collegiate PAT. Avery finished with two receptions for 73 yards, while Ryan Scott was the squad’s top receiver in the contest with four catches for 32 yards. Sophomore running back Joseph Doss added 85 yards on 12 carries. Memphis punter Michael Gibson had only two punts, but averaged 41.0 yards per attempt. CHATTANOOGA

2005 REVIEW

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - What a difference a year makes. Last season, the Chattanooga Mocs stayed within striking distance throughout the first half (17-7 Memphis halftime lead), before the Tigers put together a 28-point third quarter to take control of the contest. This year, Memphis put the game out of reach before halftime, grabbing a 35-7 advantage by intermission and never looking back. The Tigers piled up nearly 600 yards of total offense (598 yards) with 398 of it coming via their ground attack. DeAngelo Williams, the reigning Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year, was the Tigers’ offensive catalyst with his fifth career 200-yard rushing performance. He finished with 205 yards on 20 carries (10.2 average) and three scores, with all three touchdowns coming in the first half. In his first collegiate start, Will Hudgens was 10-of-15 passing for 139 yards and two touchdowns. Tiger backup quarterback Billy Barefield saw his first collegiate action late in the third quarter and the fourth period and finished 7-of-8 passing for 55 yards and a score. The Memphis defense played another solid game, holding the Moc offense to only 105 yards passing. The Tigers forced a fumble and intercepted two Chattanooga passes. Wesley Smith led Memphis with eight total hits (six solo, two assists), and Tim Goodwell added seven tackles (six solo, one assist) and an interception. Goodwell’s pick was the first of his career. After an exchange of punts, the Tigers got the scoring started midway through the first quarter. Memphis put together a six-play, 55-yard drive that culminated in a Williams’ 15yard touchdown scamper that put the Tigers ahead 7-0. Chattanooga had an immediate answer on the ensuing drive. The Mocs drove 65 yards on six plays, and when Eldra Buckley crossed the goal line from 38 yards out, the score was tied at 7-7. On the drive, Buckley accounted for 50 of the 65 yards. However, that’s when the exchange of touchdowns stopped. While the Tiger offense scored on their next four possessions, the Memphis defense pitched a shutout the rest of the first half. Williams added touchdown runs of nine and 20 yards for a 21-7 advantage. The Tigers then went to the air for their next two scores. The first came at the 12:24 mark of the second quarter when Hudgens hooked up with Maurice Avery for a 62-yard touchdown strike. The touchdown pass was Hudgens’ first of his collegiate career.

TULSA 37, MEMPHIS 31 (OT) SEPT. 24, 2005 • TULSA, OKLA.

TULSA, Okla. - It’s not the way to start Conference USA play, but the Tigers have used it to their advantage the last two years. As in 2003 and 2004, Memphis dropped its league opener, falling 37-31 at Tulsa in overtime. The Tigers bounced back in 2003 and 2004 with 5-3 league records, and they will have to do the same in 2005. DeAngelo Williams was a huge bright spot for the Tigers in the setback. The reigning Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year rushed for 223 yards and three scores. It was the secondstraight week Williams gained over 200 rushing yards and scored three touchdowns. The 200-yard performance was the sixth of his career and also gave him the Conference USA career rushing mark. Tulsa quarterback Paul Smith matched Williams through the air. Smith was 15-of-22 passing for 234 yards and three scoring strikes. He also ran the ball 10 times for 29 yards. Smith’s favorite target was Garrett Mills, who had seven receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns. It was the second Smith-to-Mills scoring strike that proved to be the game winner in overtime. The Tigers suffered another setback when redshirt freshman quarterback Will Hudgens was injured with under a minute to play in regulation. Hudgens finished the game with 129 yards passing and one touchdown. The Golden Hurricane led 21-14 at the break, and struck first in the second half. Tulsa drove 62 yards on six plays, picking up the last 38 yards on a scoring strike from Smith to Mills. The touchdown gave Tulsa a 28-14 lead. The Tigers, however, had an answer. Memphis scored with 5:19 left in the third quarter when Maurice Avery scored on a 20-yard pass from Hudgens. Early in the final quarter, it looked as if Tulsa would regain its two-touchdown lead and put the game out of reach. The Tiger defense halted the Golden Hurricane at the one yard line, and forced Tulsa to settle for a field goal. Brad DeVault connected on a 19-yard field goal to give Tulsa a 31-21 lead with only 10:55 left. Memphis’ quick-strike offense cut into the Tulsa lead 1:39 later when Stephen Gostkowski hit a 32yard field goal. After the Tiger defense forced Tulsa to punt, Memphis took over with a little over six minutes left in regulation. Memphis put together an impressive 13-play, 65-yard drive that culminated in a Williams eight-yard score to tie the contest with only 1:54 left. The Tiger defense stepped up again, holding the Golden Hurricane to a three-and-out. Tulsa punted, and Memphis had the ball near midfield with under a minute to play. However, the Tigers were not able to muster any late-game momentum, and the game went into overtime.

Memphis Tulsa

Memphis won the coin flip and elected to go on defense first. The Tulsa offense wasted little time, as on the first play, Smith hit Mills for a 25-yard touchdown. DeVault missed the PAT, and the Golden Hurricane only led 37-31. The Tigers then got their overtime opportunity. Memphis marched to the Tulsa 18 on two Williams’ runs, but Avery lost a yard on third down. After a penalty moved the Tigers back to the 24, Memphis faced a 4th-and-9. Williams got the call, but the Golden Hurricane defense pushed the All-America running back out-ofbounds just short of the first down marker, ending the contest. In the first half, Memphis struck first for a 7-0 lead when Williams hit paydirt from seven yards out. The Golden Hurricane scored the next two touchdowns for a 14-7 lead, but Williams tied the contest at 14-all with 4:16 left before halftime. Tulsa, though, regained the advantage at 21-14 just before intermission when Tarrion Adams rambled for a 64-yard touchdown with only 27 seconds left. Wesley Smith led the Tiger defense with 10 tackles (nine solo) and an interception. Marcus West added nine stops (eight solo). Bobby Blackshire led the Tulsa defense with eight tackles (seven solo), including the key stop in overtime when he pushed Williams out-of-bounds just shy of a first down. Memphis also had two costly fumbles that halted drives and was penalized 12 times for 93 yards. MEMPHIS

MEMPHIS 27, UTEP 20 OCT. 1, 2005 • MEMPHIS, TENN. winner. The 200-yard performance was his thirdstraight of 2005 and the seventh of his career. Williams’ spectacular 74-yard scoring scamper in the third quarter gave Memphis a 17-6 lead. Another bright spot for the Tigers was the punting of Michael Gibson. The Memphis punter averaged 45.8 yards per punt, including a long of 54 yards, and pinned the UTEP offense inside the 20 twice. The high-powered UTEP offense was as advertised. Palmer was 23-of-53 passing for 431 yards. It was the first time a quarterback had thrown for over 400 yards against the Tigers since Arkansas State’s Nick Noce did so in 2004. The Tigers also won that game in thrilling fashion. UTEP had three receivers over 100 yards in Higgins (134 yards), Chris Francies (120) and Boyd (126). Higgins had the only touchdown reception for UTEP. True freshman Billy Barefield made his first collegiate start at quarterback for Memphis. The Tiger signal-caller was 12-of-19 for 79 yards, but operated an error-free offense w ith no interceptions and no fumbles lost. Avery threw the only Tiger touchdown pass, lofting a 43-yard strike to Scott. It was Scott’s first score of 2005. Scott had seven receptions for 104 yards, and both marks were career bests.

2005 REVIEW

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Memphis fans should throw away the nail clippers and have health checkups performed because the Tiger football squad has proven it can make things interesting in 2005. For the third time in four games, the Tigers took the outcome into the final minute of regulation or overtime. This week, Memphis used key defensive plays and the running of DeAngelo Williams to post a thrilling 27-20 win over preseason C-USA West Division favorite UTEP. The Tigers went up 20-12 with only 4:51 left in regulation when Stephen Gostkowski connected on a 24-yard field goal. Needing a touchdown and two-point conversion to tie, the Miners wasted little time in doing so. After UTEP’s ensuing drive started with a 15-yard penalty against Memphis, Miner quarterback Jordan Palmer hit Jayson Boyd for a 36-yard gain to the Tiger 29. On the next play, Palmer connected with Johnny Higgins Jr. for a 29-yard scoring strike to pull the Miners to within two at 20-18. UTEP then tied the contest at 20-all when Palmer ran in the two-point conversion. The UTEP scoring drive took only 50 seconds. The Miners held Memphis on its next possession, and got the ball back with 2:02 on the clock. After an exchange of holding penalties, Palmer went back to pass from his own 28 yard line. However, the UTEP signal-caller found Memphis’ Derek Clenin, who intercepted the pass at the UTEP 35 and returned it to inside with 10 with only 1:16 left. It didn’t take the Tigers long to regain the lead from that point. Williams gained all nine yards on the two-play drive to give Memphis a 27-20 advantage with 50 seconds left. Aware of UTEP’s quick-strike capabilities, the victory celebration was on hold. The Miners took over on the 20 yard line, and Memphis forced Palmer incompletions on the first two downs. On third down, the Tiger defense came up big again, sealing the win when O.C. Collins picked off Palmer at the UTEP 31 with :32 on the clock. As exciting as the final minutes were, the first half was uneventful as Memphis led 7-6 at the intermission. Two Reagan Schneider field goals accounted for the UTEP scoring, while a Maurice Avery-to-Ryan Scott touchdown connection was the Tigers’ lone score. For Memphis, the stories of the game were the defense and Williams. While the Tiger defense allowed Palmer 431 yards passing, it held the UTEP ground game in check. The Miners managed only 74 yards rushing on 25 carries. The Memphis defense also forced six UTEP turnovers (three fumbles, three interceptions), including three inside the red zone. Once again, Williams, a Heisman Trophy hopeful, proved why he is the nation’s top running back. The senior rushed for 236 yards on 35 carries and scored two touchdowns, including the game

UCF 38, MEMPHIS 17 OCT. 8, 2005 • ORLANDO, FLA.

ORLANDO, Fla.. -- Playing home and away seems like night and day for the 2005 Tigers. After an inspiring victory over C-USA West Division preseason favorite UTEP the previous week at home, Memphis ran into a hungry UCF squad in Orlando, falling to the Golden Knights 38-17 before 20,562 fans in the Florida Citrus Bowl. The Tiger defense -- which the week before versus UTEP was so opportunistic -- was unable to do the same against UCF, as the Golden Knights played error-free football in the win. The UCF offense was clicking the entire game, piling up 551 yards of total offense in running a balanced attack. The Golden Knights had 261 yards rushing and 290 yards passing. Leading the UCF offense was quarterback Stephen Moffett and running back Kevin Smith. Moffett was 14of-21 passing for 290 yards and three touchdown tosses. Smith proved to be just as effective on the ground, recording 164 yards on 31 carries and one touchdown. All of Moffett’s 14 completions went to two receivers in Mike Walker and Brandon Marshall. Walker had 10 receptions for 157 yards (both game highs) and one score, while Marshall had four catches for 133 yards and two touchdowns. As has been the case all season, DeAngelo Williams paced the Tiger offense with 136 yards on 14 carries, including a spectacular 76-yard jaunt in the second quarter that set up a score. The Heisman Trophy hopeful missed most of the third quarter as a result of dehydration. Sophomore Joseph Doss carried the ball nine times for 33 yards and scored two touchdowns. The first touchdown -- a nine-yard scamper with five minutes left in the second quarter -- was the first of his career. Senior Maurice Avery rushed the ball four times for 38 yards. Memphis was unable to stretch the field with its passing game. True freshman quarterback Billy Barefield was 13-of-22 passing for only 71 yards. His long completion of the contest was 11 yards. Ryan Scott was Barefield’s favorite target, catching five balls for 35 yards. UCF opened the contest strong, scoring on its first two drives of the game for a 14-0 first quarter advantage. The Golden Knights took the opening kickoff and marched down the field 80 yards on 11 plays for the game’s first score. The drive culminated in a Dontavious Wilcox six-yard touchdown run. After the UCF defense held the Tigers threeand-out, the Golden Knight offense put together another impressive drive. UCF took seven plays to go 69 yards, and when Moffett connected with Walker from 20 yards out, the Golden Knights led 14-0. The Tigers would not go quietly in the first half. Memphis responded with two Doss scores to tie the contest at 14-all. Doss’ first touchdown came at the end of a seven-play, 48-yard drive. Williams

started the drive with 14 rushing yards, and Doss picked up the final 22 yards for the score. On its next possession, Memphis tied the contest at 14-all. After a Barefield-to-Scott pass play netted eight yards to the Tiger 22, Williams put on another show with an amazing 76-yard scamper that moved the ball to the UCF 2. From there, Doss picked up the final two yards for the touchdown. The Tigers took momentum into the intermission, but UCF came out with fire in the second half. Moffett found Marshall for a 69-yard scoring strike for a 21-14 Golden Knight lead early in the third quarter. Memphis, though, answered with a Stephen Gostkowski 40-yard field goal to cut the lead to 21-17 with 8:23 left in the third quarter. But, UCF took control in the final period of play. The Golden Knights scored two touchdowns in the first three minutes of the fourth quarter to put the game away. The first touchdown came just two seconds into the final period when Smith hit paydirt from one yard out to end a 16-play, 80-yard drive that took up 8:25 on the clock. UCF’s second score of the quarter came after Jason Venson picked off a Barefield pass and returned it to the Tiger 40. Three plays later, Moffett hit Marshall for a 38yard touchdown strike to give UCF a 35-17 lead. Matt Prater added a field goal with 3:35 left for the 38-17 final. Brandon McDonald led the Tiger defense with 9.5 tackles. Wesley Smith added nine stops. MEMPHIS

MEMPHIS 35, HOUSTON 20 OCT. 15, 2005 • HOUSTON, TEXAS in 4:21. The score came on an Avery-to-Scott nine-yard touchdown pass. The Cougars added two Ben Bell field goals in the final five minutes of the first half to cut the Memphis lead to 21-20. The second half is when the Tiger defense took over. Houston drove to the Memphis goal line two times, but the tough Tiger defense forced and recovered fumbles on both drives. The second Houston threat came midway through the fourth quarter, and the Cougars did not have another scoring chance the rest of the contest. Memphis then put the game away with two fourth-quarter scores -- an Avery one-yard run and a Williams 25-yard run -- for the 3520 final. Avery finished the game with 105 yards on the ground. Leading the charge for the Tiger defense were Wesley Smith (13 tackles), Tim Goodwell (11) and Carlton Baker (10). Heath Grant and Brandon McDonald each had three pass break-ups. Tiger punter Michael Gibson continued his stellar play. Gibson averaged 46.8 yards on five punts. Kolb led the Cougar offense with 386 yards on 25-of-44 passing. He had one touchdown and no interceptions. Kolb’s favorite targets were Avery (8 receptions for 112 yards) and Marshall (6 catches for 139 yards).

2005 REVIEW

HOUSTON, Texas - What a difference a week makes. The previous Saturday in a loss at UCF, the Tiger offense was unable to stretch the field via the air to help open up the running game. In addition, the Memphis defense was unable to stop the Golden Knight offense. Sometime during preparations for the Houston contest, the Tigers shored up both areas. Memphis head coach Tommy West inserted Maurice Avery at quarterback, and the change paid immediate dividends for the Tigers. Avery, who had played quarterback in his first season at Memphis, went 7-of-12 passing for 112 yards and two scoring strikes. One touchdown toss was a 66-yard bomb to Ryan Scott. With the ability to spread the field, Memphis was able to open up the running game, and reigning Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year DeAngelo Williams took advantage of it. The 2005 Heisman Trophy candidate ran for 198 yards and two touchdowns. His first score tied the contest at 7-all, and the second touchdown gave the Tigers a 35-20 late in the fourth quarter and put the contest out of reach. The Memphis defense -- that was muchmaligned after the UCF loss -- came up big in the victory. After giving up 20 first-half points, the Tigers pitched a shutout in the second half. Memphis held the Cougar ground game in check, allowing only 106 yards. The Tiger defense proved to be just as opportunistic as it did in the win over UTEP, forcing and recovering two key second-half fumbles that halted Houston scoring drives near the goal line. The first four scoring drives of the game proved to be a case of “which-team-could-scorethe-quickest.” Houston got it started with the opening possession of the game. Cougar quarterback Kevin Kolb hooked up with Vincent Marshall for a 79-yard pass on the first play from scrimmage, taking the ball to the Memphis 1. Jackie Battle picked up the final yard, finishing off the scoring drive in 40 seconds and giving Houston a 7-0 lead. The Tigers tied the game at 7-all early in the second quarter, and it took them only 44 seconds to do so. The drive was only three plays, and it ended when Williams scampered into the end zone from 35 yards out. Not to be outdone, the Cougars responded on the next drive. It took Houston only 22 seconds to regain the lead at 14-7, and the drive culminated in a Kolb-to-Donnie Avery 63-yard touchdown pass. Again, the Tigers played catch-up, and they did so quickly. It took only two plays and 57 seconds, and the score came when Avery hit Scott for a 66-yard touchdown strike. On their next possession, the Tigers not only took their first lead of the game, but also took the lead for good. Memphis also took a little more time on the scoring drive, going 54 yards on 11 plays

MEMPHIS 27, EAST CAROLINA 24 OCT. 22, 2005 • MEMPHIS, TENN.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - No Memphis fan can ever say the Tigers don’t make games interesting. Memphis ran out to a 17-0 halftime lead, and then had to hold off an East Carolina second-half rally for a 27-24 victory. The win kept the Tigers in the hunt for the Conference USA East Division title and the right to play in the league’s first championship game. The victory also kept hopes alive for a third-straight postseason bowl bid. Another reason that Memphis games are interesting is the play of 2005 Heisman Trophy candidate DeAngelo Williams. The senior running back had another spectacular performance on the ground in leading the Tigers to the win. The two-time reigning Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year rushed for 226 yards on 39 carries and scored two touchdowns. The 200-yard performance was his fourth of the 2005 campaign and the eighth of his career. With his 226 yards against East Carolina, Williams continued his climb up the NCAA career rushing list. Williams now has 5,371 yards and is in the No. 7 spot on that chart. Williams moved past Archie Griffin, Herschel Walker and LaDainian Tomlinson. The Tiger defense had another outstanding performance, holding the Pirate ground game to only 46 yards on 16 carries (2.9 yards per rush). The Memphis defense also limited East Carolina’s time of possession. The Tigers won that battle as well, 37:35 to 22:25. Memphis led 17-0 at the intermission, and after an exchange of field goals, the Tigers still held a 17-point advantage at 20-3. That’s when the Pirates began their rally. East Carolina wasted little time in cutting into the Tiger lead. The Pirates moved the ball 80 yards on eight plays, culminating in a James Pinkney-to-Aundra Allison 27-yard scoring strike. The scoring drive -- which cut the Memphis lead to 20-10 -- only took 1:55 off the clock, and 20 minutes remained in the game. The Pirates carried that momentum into the final period, slicing the Tiger lead to 20-17 with 10:25 left. East Carolina scored again with its quick-strike offense, taking only 2:02 off the clock in going 78 yards on seven plays. The Tigers got the ball on the ensuing kickoff and needed to take some time off the clock. The Memphis offense, led by Williams, answered the call. The Tigers held on to the ball for 8:08 on the drive that culminated in a Maurice Avery one-yard touchdown plunge, extending the lead to 27-17 with only 2:17 left. On the drive, Williams picked up 47 of the 75 yards. With just over two minutes left, the Pirates

did not give up. East Carolina moved the ball 75 yards in only 2:07 and scored when Pinkney found Phillip Henry from two yards out. The touchdown cut the Tiger advantage to 27-24 with only :10 remaining in regulation. The Pirates attempted an onsides kick, but Memphis recovered and ran out the clock for the win. In the first half, it looked as if Memphis would run away with the win. The Tigers built a 17-0 lead by halftime on the strength of two Williams’ touchdown runs. Stephen Gostkowski added a career-long 51-yard field goal. Senior Maurice Avery received the starting nod at quarterback for the second-straight week, and he played error-free ball. Avery was 10-of-14 passing for 117 yards and no interception, and also rushed the ball 16 times for 49 yards and the game-clinching score. Carlton Robinzine was the Tigers’ top receiver with two catches for 48 yards. Pinkney was 26-of-46 passing for 297 yards and three touchdowns to lead East Carolina. Allison was Pinkney’s favorite target, grabbing 10 passes for 108 yards and one score. O.C. Collins paced the Tiger defense with seven total tackles (six solo), one TFL and one pass break-up. Rod Smith and Tim Goodwell each had five tackles. EAST CAROLINA

UAB 37, MEMPHIS 20 NOV. 1, 2005 • MEMPHIS, TENN. UAB grabbed the lead for good on its opening drive of the second half. Hackney moved the Blazers 74 yards on 11 plays, and found Reggie Lindsey for an 11-yard touchdown pass to end the drive. The score gave UAB a 24-20 lead, and the Blazers did not trail the remainder of the contest. Parker Mullins hit field goals of 26 and 23 yards on UAB’s next two possessions to increase the lead to 30-20. The Blazers finished the game with a touchdown late in the fourth quarter for the 37-20 final. The score was a second touchdown connection from Hackney to Lindsey, this time from 28 yards out. Lindsey caught seven passes for 111 yards and two scores. UAB running back Corey White helped the Blazer effort, gaining 200 yards on 28 carries. Hackney completed 25 of his 42 pass attempts.

2005 REVIEW

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - It was a match-up between two of Conference USA’s best players -- Memphis’ DeAngelo Williams and UAB’s Darrell Hackney -- in the league’s short history, and it didn’t disappoint. Williams, the reigning twotime Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year, had 21 carries for 167 yards, including a spectacular 76-yard scamper in the second quarter. With his 200 all-purpose yards in the game, Williams moved into the No. 3 spot on the NCAA career all-purpose yards list. Hackney was equally as impressive, passing for 334 yards and four touchdowns. The lone disappointment was felt by Tiger fans, as Memphis fell to UAB 37-20, before a crowd of 47,669 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. The setback was the Tigers’ sixth straight to the conference rival. In the early going, it seemed as if the Tigers were going to put an end to the Blazers’ winning streak in the series. Memphis bolted out to a 17-3 advantage early in the second quarter. The Tigers drove the field on their opening possession, going 74 yards on 10 plays. The drive was capped when Maurice Avery hit Maurice Jones from 26 yards out for the score. After a UAB field goal cut the lead to 7-3, the Tigers struck quickly on their next drive. On first down, Williams put on another amazing run, busting through the line for a 76-yard scamper to the UAB 1. Two plays later, Earnest Williams scored to increase the Tiger lead to 14-3 with 4:24 left in the first period. Moments into the second quarter, a Stephen Gostkowski 45-yard field goal gave Memphis a 17-3 lead and seemingly the momentum. But, that’s when the Blazers began their comeback. On its next possession, UAB went 75 yards on eight plays, culminating in a Hackney-toNorris Drinkard eight-yard strike. The Blazer scoring drive was aided when, after a 3rd-and-7 was not converted, the Memphis defense was flagged for a personal foul that gave UAB an automatic first down. The Blazers continued their comeback on the next possession. Hackney went 6-of-7 for 73 yards on the drive, and connected on a 25-yard strike with Jhun Cook to tie the score 17-all. Memphis stopped UAB for a moment before the intermission with an eight-play, 62-yard scoring drive that ended with a Gostkowski 26-yard field goal. The kick gave Memphis a narrow 20-17 halftime lead, but the Blazers still had the momentum. And UAB carried that into the second half. The Blazer offense scored on its first three possessions of the second half to turn a 17-20 deficit into a 30-20 lead. The UAB defense also rose to the occasion in the second half, holding Memphis to no points and only 146 yards of total offense (77 rushing, 69 passing).

TENNESSEE 20, MEMPHIS 16 NOV. 12, 2005 • KNOXVILLE, TENN.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Here’s the scenario: Your team is playing one of its biggest games of the season. However, only minutes before kickoff, you learn the squad’s top player is unable to suit up and play. The team has two options. One is to pack up the tents and fold under the pressure. The other is to band together even more and fight even harder. The latter option was the one chosen by the Memphis Tiger football team in its game against the Tennessee Volunteers. During pregame warmups, Tiger All-America running back DeAngelo Williams tried to go on his sprained ankle -- an injury he suffered in the Nov. 1 UAB game -- but was unable to do so and did not play in the game. In Williams’ absence, other Tigers stepped up and nearly led Memphis to victory. The Volunteers, though, were able to come through in the end for the 20-16 win before a crowd of 106,647 at Neyland Stadium. The Tiger offensive players that stepped up in place of Williams were senior quarterback Maurice Avery and sophomore running back Joseph Doss. Avery did his damage via the ground and air, rushing for 72 yards on 18 carries and passing for 128 yards. He also had Memphis’ lone touchdown, a four-yard score in the second quarter. Doss had a career day for the Tigers, gaining 77 yards on 17 carries. The rushing attempts and yards both were career highs for Doss. The Memphis defense was just as impressive. The Tigers held the Tennessee rushing attack to only 126 yards and no touchdowns. The Volunteers managed 215 yards through the air. With the outlook dim in the early going with Williams’ absence, the Tigers took charge in the first quarter. Memphis held on to the ball over eight minutes in the opening period and scored on two of its three first quarter possessions. On their second possession, the Tigers drove 55 yards on eight plays, culminating in a Stephen Gostkowski 43-yard field goal for a 3-0 lead. On the ensuing drive, Tennessee had the ball for two plays before Memphis’ Brandon McDonald picked off Erik Ainge and returned it to the Volunteer 25. From there, the Tigers put together a short four-play, five-yard drive that ended in another Gostkowski field goal -- this time, from 37 yards out -- for a 6-0 lead. The Memphis defense stepped up again on Tennessee’s next possession, forcing the Volunteers to punt early in the second quarter. The Tigers answered with their third-straight scoring drive. Memphis went 85 yards on nine plays, and when Avery hit paydirt from four yards out, the Tigers held a 13-0 lead with 10:46 left

before halftime. Tennessee, however, responded with two touchdowns in the final 10 minutes of the first half. Rick Clausen subbed in for Ainge and led the Volunteers to the two scores. Clausen’s first touchdown pass was a 39-yard strike to Josh Briscoe that ended a three-play, 56-yard drive. Then, just before intermission, Clausen hooked up with CJ Payton from 15 yards out to give Tennessee a 14-13 lead. Memphis regained the advantage with the only score in the third period. The Tiger defense recovered a fumble near midfield, setting up the offense with excellent field position. Memphis moved the ball 34 yards on eight plays, and Gostkowski nailed a 35-yard field goal to give the Tigers a 16-14 lead. Tennessee, though, found a way to win. James Wilhoit kicked two fourth quarter field goals in the final 10 minutes to lift the Volunteers to the victory. Wilhoit’s go-ahead kick came at the 9:06 mark of the fourth quarter, and his field goal with only :41 on the clock sealed the win. Tim Goodwell, Carlton Baker and Michael Spurlock each recorded 10 total tackles to lead the Memphis defense. Baker also added two quarterback sacks for 12 yards. Clausen finished the game with 209 yards on 14-of-24 passing. Arian Foster led the Volunteer ground game with 132 yards on 28 carries. MEMPHIS

The touchdown was a 30yard pass from Almond to Josh Barnes. As a result of a previously PAT blocked by Memphis, the Golden Eagles had to go for two to tie the game. Southern Miss’ first attempt was a pass that failed, but the Tigers were called for pass interference. On the second attempt, the Golden Eagles tried to run it in, but Hull was stopped at the 1 yard line. Southern Miss tried an on-sides kickoff, but Avery recovered the kick and the Tigers ran out the clock for the win. Memphis built its 21-3 lead in the second period and the early portion of the third. After a Darren McCaleb field goal gave Southern Miss a 3-0 lead, Avery and Williams each scored a rushing touchdown in the second quarter for a 14-3 halftime lead. Avery and Williams then hooked up for a 29-yard scoring strike to increase the advantage to 21-3 with 12:16 left in the third quarter. Carlton Baker (12 tackles) and Tim Goodwell (9) led the defensive charge for the Tigers. McDonald and O.C. Collins each came up with a huge interception. Collins’ pick set up the Tigers’ second touchdown, while McDonald’s interception halted a Golden Eagle scoring drive just before halftime. MEMPHIS

2005 REVIEW

HATTIESBURG, Miss.. - “You gotta believe!” Even the most ardent Memphis fans had slim hopes that the Tigers could win out and earn bowl eligibility after the last previous weeks of play. Here was the scenario: • Memphis had dropped its last two games to UAB and Tennessee and had its record to fall to 4-5. • The Tigers had to win their final two games to post a winning season and become bowl eligible. • The first of Memphis’ final two regular season games was against Southern Miss in Hattiesburg, a place the Tigers had not won since 1984. Well, previous Memphis teams may have packed it in and just went through the motions. But, these are head coach Tommy West’s Tigers, and they have proven time after time, that when the chips are down, they rise to the occasion. And, Memphis did so in its 24-22 Conference USA victory over the Golden Eagles. DeAngelo Williams, the two-time C-USA Offensive Player of the Year, rushed for 123 yards and one touchdown and caught one pass for 29 yards and another score to pace the Memphis offense. Senior quarterback Maurice Avery also played a big role in the Tigers’ victory. He was 12-of-19 passing for 157 yards and a touchdown and ran for 64 yards and another score. The Memphis defense and special teams also stepped up to the challenge. The Tigers held Southern Miss to only 94 yards on the ground and picked off Golden Eagle quarterback Dustin Almond twice. The special teams did a stellar job as well, as punter Michael Gibson averaged 41.6 yards on five punts. Brandon McDonald came up big in special teams play, blocking a Southern Miss PAT. The Tigers also stopped the Golden Eagles in their attempt to tie the game on a two-point conversion run with only 1:30 left in the game. Memphis built a 21-3 lead early in the third quarter before the Golden Eagles began their comeback. Cody Hull scored Southern Miss’ first touchdown of the game with 3:17 left in the third quarter to cut the Tiger lead to 21-9. The Golden Eagle joy, however, was dampened somewhat when McDonald blocked the PAT attempt, which would later force Southern Miss to go for a twopoint conversion. Stephen Gostkowski stopped the Golden Eagle momentum for an instant when his 27-yard field goal gave Memphis a 24-9 lead with 13:53 to go in the game. But, Southern Miss kept the pressure on. An Almond-to-Joe Singleton 15-yard scoring strike cut the Tiger lead to 24-16 with 7:41 left. After an exchange of punts, the Golden Eagles got the ball with 2:54 left and 80 yards to go for a

MEMPHIS 26, MARSHALL 3 NOV. 26, 2005 • MEMPHIS, TENN.

MEMPHIS, Tenn.. - Hollywood’s top script writer couldn’t have done a better job than the screenplay the Memphis Tigers wrote for their 2005 regular season finale. Here’s the script: • Emotional pregame ceremonies honoring 16 seniors that helped bring Memphis football to the national scene • Two early touchdowns by senior All-America running back DeAngelo Williams that gave the Tigers a 14-0 lead • A stifling defense that held Marshall to only 154 yards of total offense (57 rushing, 97 passing) and three points • Three second-half field goals by senior Stephen Gostkowski, including a school-record 53-yarder against the wind, that gave the Tigers insurance points • A 26-3 victory over the Thundering Herd • The Tigers returning to the field to thank the fans for their support • Seniors Maurice Avery and Williams directing the Memphis marching band, The Mighty Sound of the South, in the Tiger fight song • A third-straight winning season • A third-consecutive season that Memphis is bowl eligible • The Tigers waiting to see which bowl they will play in The lone “down” spot in an otherwise joyful script was that the Tigers set a Conference USA single-game record for fewest passing yards with minus-3 against the Thundering Herd. But, on this day, Memphis didn’t need to pass the ball. Behind the running of Williams and Avery, the Tigers rolled up 243 yards on the ground, and more importantly, controlled the game throughout. Williams ran for 127 yards for his 33rd career 100-yard rushing performance. The 33 100-yard rushing games tied the NCAA record held by both Archie Griffin (Ohio State) and Tony Dorsett (Pittsburgh). Avery added 93 yards on 19 carries. The Tiger defense played a stellar game, holding the Marshall offense to under 200 yards of total offense. Memphis held its fifth opponent of 2005 to under 100 yards rushing, and it was the first time since the 2003 USF contest that the Tigers held an opponent to under 200 yards of total offense. After an exchange of punts to open the game, Memphis got on the board first and never looked back. The Tigers took the ball on their own 22 and drove 78 yards on six plays for the game’s first touchdown, a Williams’ one-yard run. On the drive, Williams (40 yards) and Avery (23 yards) accounted for 63 of the 78 yards. On their next possession, the Tigers essentially put the game out of reach with their second touchdown. This time, Memphis went 56 yards

on 10 plays, and the drive ended with another Williams’ one-yard score for a 14-0 lead. Marshall managed a second quarter Ian O’Connor field goal to get on the scoreboard, but the Thundering Herd did not mount another serious scoring threat the rest of the game. In fact, Marshall got into Tiger territory only once after its lone score of the game. After Williams’ two touchdowns, the Tigers turned to Gostkowski’s leg for the final 12 points. The senior kicker booted four field goals, including his school-record 53-yarder, for the 26-3 final. Tim Goodwell (13 tackles, 1 QB sack), Carlton Baker (7 tackles, 1 QB sack) and Wesley Smith (7 tackles, 1 QB sack) led the Memphis defensive charge. The Tigers also had five pass breakups and forced four Marshall fumbles, with Memphis recovering three of them. In addition to Gostkowski, the Tiger kicking game was aided by the performance of punter Michael Gibson. He punted four times for a 42.0 average, including a 70-yard effort in the first quarter. Gibson’s 70-yard punt is tied for the fourth-longest in Memphis history. Ahmad Bradshaw led the Marshall rushing attack with 89 yards on 26 carries. Herd quarterback Jimmy Skinner was 11-of-19 passing for 97 yards. MARSHALL

The game moved into the fourth quarter, and the shootout began. Gostkowski got it started with a 50-yard field goal for a 23-10 Tiger lead. Akron responded with a quick three-play, 80-yard drive to cut the Memphis lead to 23-17. The big play was a Getsy-toBiggs 72-yard scoring strike. The Tigers then answered with their own big play in the form of Williams. With the Zips closing in and also gaining momentum, Memphis’ All-America running back took a handoff and raced 67 yards to the Akron 2. On the next play, Williams scored his third touchdown. Avery added the two-point conversion for a 31-17 Memphis advantage. The Tigers added another score on an Earnest Williams 5-yard run to increase the lead to 38-17 with only 6:38 left. However, the Zips did not quit. Akron scored two touchdowns in under six minutes to pull to within seven at 38-31 with only 50 seconds left. The Zips’ first drive took nearly five minutes, and ended when Getsy hit Domenik Hixon from 14 yards out. The Akron special teams then executed a perfect on-side kick, and recovered the ball at midfield with 1:45 left. One minute later, Getsy connected with Arthur for a 19-yard touchdown pass to cut the Tiger lead to 38-31. The Zips tried their magic one more time, but this time, the Tiger special teams recovered the on-side kick, and Memphis ran out the clock for the win. Goodwell, who received the UAW Lineman Award, led the Tiger defense with 12 tackles, five TFLs and two sacks.

2005 REVIEW

DETROIT, Mich. - It was the holiday season, and the Memphis Tiger football team gave its fans a Merry Christmas – even though it came a day later. Behind a DeAngelo Williams 238-yard rushing performance and three Stephen Gostkowski field goals, the Tigers posted their second postseason victory in three seasons with a 38-31 win over Akron in the 2005 Motor City Bowl. The game was played at Ford Field, the site of the NFL’s 2006 Super Bowl in early February. Williams, who was named the Motor City Bowl MVP, compiled his bowl record-setting 238 yards on 31 carries and scored three touchdowns. Gostkowski hit field goals of 32, 25 and 50 yards, and the 50-yard effort set a Motor City Bowl mark. The way the game started gave no indication it would end up being a 38-31 shootout. The Memphis offense sputtered at the start, and the Tigers relied on their defense and punter Michael Gibson’s foot. The Tiger defense allowed the Zips only three points, despite having two first-quarter drives deep in Memphis territory. Akron got the field goal on its second drive, but on the first trip across the 50 yard line, the Zips’ series was halted at the Memphis 25 when Tim Goodwell and Rod Smith stopped Brett Biggs on fourth-and-1. Gibson played just as important a role in the first quarter with two long punts – 51 and 49 yards – that pinned Akron inside its own 10 yard line both times. After watching the defense keep the Tigers in the game in the first quarter, the Memphis offense got on track in the second frame. Williams, who gained only 19 yards in the first quarter, picked it up on the Tigers’ first scoring drive with 34 yards on the ground. Tiger quarterback Maurice Avery also found his groove in the second quarter, hitting Ernest Williams on a 42yard strike to the Akron 23. Four plays later, Gostkowski connected on a 32-yard field goal to tie the contest at 3-all. The Tigers kept it going. The defense held the Zips to three-and-out on their next series, and the Memphis offense continued to roll. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Avery found his target in Ryan Scott for a 50-yard gain to the Akron 2 yard line. Williams then pushed the ball across the goal line for the first Memphis lead of the game. After Gostkowski’s PAT, the Tigers led 10-3. With just over four minutes left before halftime, Akron got the ball with an opportunity to cut into the Tiger lead, but it didn’t happen. The Tiger offense took over with 2:30 on the clock and took advantage of another scoring chance. After two rushes netted a minus-3 yards, Avery took back to the air and again hit Scott for a long gain – this time, 48 yards – to the Akron 27. From there, the Tigers moved the ball to the Zips 7, where Gostkowski hit his second field goal for a 13-3 Tiger halftime lead. The early portion of the second half looked no different for the Akron offense. Stymied by the Tigers in the first half, the Zips were unable to get past their own 40 yard line on the first two possessions. Aided by two Akron defensive pass interference calls, the Tigers moved down to the Akron 2, where Williams scored his second touchdown for a 20-3 Memphis lead. With only three minutes left in the third quarter and down 20-3, the Zips scored via the air on the

LOU GROZA AWARD

138

RECORDS

Joe Allison, standing with Lou Groza, was the first recipient of the prestigious Lou Groza Award.

Former University of Memphis place-kicker Joe Allison enjoyed a record-setting career and a brilliant season in 1992, but he never dreamed that, in doing so, he would receive the Lou Groza Award, which is presented to the nation’s top college kicker. Allison, a native of Atlanta, Ga., led the nation in field goals per game, average field goals made per game, and kick-scoring for the final nine weeks of the 1992 season. His 23-of-25 field goals made were the most in the nation, according to the NCAA, and his 92.0 percent made rated best among all kickers for the year. “I did not know about the Lou Groza Award until we played Tulsa in late October,” said Allison. “After the game, Bob Winn (Assistant Athletic Director/Communications) came up to me in the locker room and said that I was a candidate for the award. I didn’t even know who Lou Groza was at the time. “As soon as we returned to campus, I looked up Mr. Groza’s statistics in the NFL record book, and I talked to Coach Armstrong (UM kicking coach) about his career with the Cleveland Browns.” Allison continued on his torrid streak of field goals made throughout the remainder of the ‘92 season. Week after week, his name appeared at the top of the NCAA statistics for kickers and a campaign was started to let sports writers and voters throughout the country know about Allison’s feats. For his accomplishments, Allison was named first team All-America by The Football News, The Football Writers Association, the Associated Press, United Press International, College and Pro Football Weekly and The Sporting News. He is Memphis’ first-ever first team All-American

on the Associated Press squad and was named to more first team All-America squads in one year than any other Memphis football Tiger in the school’s history. Following the Thanksgiving holiday, Allison suffered an attack of appendicitis and had an emergency appendectomy. The surgery kept Allison from traveling to Hollywood, Calif., to appear on the Bob Hope Christmas Special, and it was while he was in the hospital recovering from his surgery that Allison learned that he had won the Lou Groza Award. “Mr. Winn called and told me that I had won the award and it made me feel a whole lot better,” Allison stated. “I was determined that I was going to get well and travel to Florida for the awards ceremony.” Allison did indeed recover from his surgery and, with the assistance of former head coach Chuck Stobart and kicking coach Murray Armstrong, traveled to West Palm Beach, Fla., to receive the first national award ever won by a Memphis player. The December 10th program was emceed by ABC sportscaster Curt Gowdy, and Baylor University head coach Grant Teaff was the guest speaker. In accepting the Lou Groza Award from “The Toe” himself, Allison credited his snapper and holder and the entire Tiger special teams. “Out of the 57 snaps during the season,” Allison said, “I was the only one who made a mistake. Chad (Williams) did not have a bad snap, Andy (McWilliams) did not have a bad hold, but I missed two field goals. I couldn’t have done it without their help.” The cousin of the late NASCAR driver Davey Allison, Joe booted 32-of-32 PATs in 1992 and finished with a then-school-record 81 consecutive PATs made for his career. He set the Memphis record for field goals

made in a single season when he kicked his 17th of the year in the Tigers’ win over Tulsa in 1992, and ended the year with 23. For 30 years, the school scoring record for a single season had been 84 points by Dave Casinelli (1963). In 1992, Allison broke Casinelli’s record during the Ole Miss game and finished the season with 101 points. He accounted for 35.2 percent of all of the Tigers’ points in 1992. Allison held the Memphis record for 50-yard field goals in a season with three in 1990 before Stephen Gostkowski booted three in 2005. He has; however, hit more 50-plus yard field goals than any other player in Tiger history with five. Allison ranks third all-time in scoring with 263 points and second in field goals made with 51 and in PATs made with 110. He held the No. 1 spots until Gostkowski completed his fouryear career in 2005 and claimed the top spot in those categories.

RETIRED JERSEYS Since the University of Memphis first fielded an intercollegiate football team in 1912, only three jerseys have been retired. Those jerseys - 8, 30, and 83 - were worn by three outstanding individuals who helped make Tiger football what it is today. Now, to help honor Charles Greenhill, Dave Casinelli and Isaac Bruce, their numbers are issued to an outstanding defensive back, a stellar running back and to a devoted receiver.

ISAAC BRUCE •••• Isaac Bruce came to the Memphis football team as a wide receiver in 1992. The 6-0 junior college transfer made an immediate impact on the Memphis football squad. Coupled with junior college quarterback Steve Matthews, Bruce helped give the Tigers one of the nation’s top passing attacks. He started all 11 games as a junior and was the team’s second-leading receiver with 39 catches for 532 yards and five touchdowns. However, it was the 1993 campaign that caught the attention of pro scouts. The Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., native opened the 1993 season with seven catches for 112 yards and two touchdowns in the Tigers’ win over Mississippi State. He added 147 yards against East Carolina, 109 in a contest against Arkansas State, 108 in the Tulsa game and had over 90 yards receiving in five additional contests. Bruce finished the 1993 season with a school-record 74 catches for 1,054 yards and 10 touchdowns. His 74 catches and 1,054 yards remain Memphis football records and his 10 touchdown receptions is third. B r u c e wa s drafted by the St. Louis Rams in 1994 and has become the team’s all-time leading receiver. His jersey was retired in a ceremony on October 4, 2003. Receiver Ryan Scott will continue to wear No. 83.

DAVE CASINELLI •••• Dave Casinelli, who was Memphis’ all-time leading rusher until recently when DeAngelo Williams took the record book by storm, was recruited to Memphis in 1960 from Follansbee, W. Va., where he received all-America honors as a senior in high school. Casinelli played at Memphis from 1960-63 and ended his career by leading the nation in rushing and scoring, while leading the Tigers to an undefeated season in 1963. During his first year as a starter, Casinelli led Memphis in rushing with 646 yards on 117 carries. His nine touchdowns in 1961 also led the Tigers. As a junior, “The Bull” gained 826 yards on 173 attempts while scoring 11 touchdowns. In his record-breaking senior year, Casinelli became the first Tiger to rush for 1,000 yards in a single-season when he tallied 1,016 on 219 attempts in 1963. His 1,016 yards ranked him first among all NCAA rushers and his 14 touchdowns helped him capture the national scoring title. Following graduation, Casinelli became a successful businessman in Memphis and Tallahassee, Fla. Casinelli later lost his life in a car accident in 1987. Mario Robinson, an all-state tailback from Melrose High School in Memphis, Tennessee, wore Dave Casinelli’s No. 30 in 2001. Quinton McCrary of Columbus, Miss., will continue to wear No. 30 as he has the last three years.

RECORDS

CHARLES GREENHILL •••• Charles Greenhill was called the “most talented football player ever to come out of Memphis, Tennessee.” The multi-talented Greenhill prepped at Frayser High School, where he lettered for three years in football, basketball and track. He played for the Tigers just one year (1983) before being killed in a plane crash with former head coach Rex Dockery and offensive coordinator Chris Faros. A defensive back, Greenhill had 20 tackles that season, including 13 solo stops. Greenhill was also a dandy return man for the Tigers. The 6-2 speedster returned a kickoff 69 yards for a touchdown against Cincinnati and went on to average 29.8 yards per return. Following his death, Firestone Stadium, which was the home field for Frayser High, was renamed Charles Greenhill Stadium. Jersey No. 8 had been worn for four years by free safety Scott Vogel, who prepped at MUS in Memphis. In 2005, the number was presented to junior college transfer Brandon McDonald.

Halfback Andy Nelson served as team co-captain and helped the 1956 Tiger Football team to its first postseason victory in the Burley Bowl.

RECORDS

Johnson City, Tenn. - In November of 1956, Memphis State College received its second bowl bid in school history, but this time University officials accepted the invitation and the team traveled to East Tennessee to participate in its first post-season event. In 1938, the Tigers received an invitation to play in the Prune Bowl in California and asked bowl officials for a financial guarantee to help cover the cost of transporting the squad across country. When the guarantee did not come through, Memphis opted to stay home. In November of 1956, the Memphis squad finished the season with a record of 4-4-1 under head coach Ralph Hatley. Andy Nelson and Cotton Clifford served as team captains that year and helped Memphis to victories in two of the final three games of the season. During that three-week span, the Tigers had back-to-back shutouts, defeating Western Kentucky 42-0 and Arkansas State 34-0. November 22 was a cold and blustery day in Johnson City, Tenn. Not suited for football or any other outdoor event, the day was highlighted by a light snow fall and spitting rain and sleet. East Tennessee State College tallied the game’s first points on a 14-yard pass from quarterback Howard Tippett to halfback Bob Lindsey during the first period. The point after failed, as did most that day, and the Buccaneers led 6-0. The Tigers answered the ETSC score

before the first quarter ended. Bob Schmidt blasted into the end zone from two yards out and following the missed PAT by Memphis, the score was tied 6-6. Neither team could do much to defeat the weather the remainder of the first half, although the Tigers penetrated several times into Buccaneer territory in the second quarter. Memphis even moved down to the East Tennessee State 1-yard line before a fumble halted the drive. The first half ended with the score knotted at 6-all. It was not until the second half that the Tigers got their offense going. After being held to 6-all in the first half by a battling bunch of Buccaneers, Memphis shook off the effects of the biting cold weather conditions and took charge of the Burley Bowl – which was witnessed by 700 fans on a frigid Thanksgiving afternoon – in the third quarter. The Tigers punched across three touchdowns in that third period to take control of the contest en route to the program’s first ever postseason bowl victory. The first time Memphis received the ball in the third quarter, fullback Bobby Brooks sprinted right up the middle, veered to the left and went 45 yards for a touchdown. And before that decisive period ended, the Tigers also scored on a one-yard plunge by Eddie Gebara and a 64-yard screen pass from Bubba Leonard to Gebara. Andy Nelson took a pitchout four yards for the final Memphis touchdown in the opening minutes of the fourth period. Leonard converted the PATs after the third and fourth touchdowns. East Tennessee’s last touchdown came midway in the fourth period when quarterback Joe Dixon ran in from one yard out. The Tigers ended the season with a 5-4-1 record, while East Tennessee State College dropped to 4-5 on the season.


PASADENA BOWL • 1971

RECORDS

MEMPHIS STATE 28 SAN JOSE STATE 9 Rose Bowl (104,091) December 18, 1971 Pasadena, Calif. - A hard-nosed defense that caused numerous San Jose State mistakes and an explosive offense that capitalized on those miscues led the Tigers to a 28-9 Pasadena Bowl rout over San Jose State before a sparse crowd of 15,244 in the Rose Bowl. Memphis State, making its first major bowl appearance, trailed 3-0 early in the opening period until a blocked punt by Tom Carlsen, who was named the defensive player of the game, gave the Tigers a lead they would never relinquish. The Tigers received the opening kickoff, and failing to move the ball, were forced to punt from their own 26-yard line. The Trojans drove the ball 19 yards and attempted a 42-yard field goal that fell short and was returned by the Tigers. Following another failed drive, San Jose moved the ball to the Memphis 16-yard line before kicker Larry Barnes connected on a 33-yard field goal. It would be the only time that SJS would hold a lead in the game. With 50 seconds remaining in the first quarter, Trojan punter John McMillan stood at his 15-yard line. Tiger defensive back Tom Carlsen blocked McMillen’s punt and fell on the loose ball in the end zone for the score. Hal McGeorge added the point after, and Memphis had the lead 7-3. The Tiger defense gained an air of confidence and stopped SJS on the ensuing series. Following a short Trojan punt, the Tigers took over at midfield. With quarterback Al Harvey leading the offensive attack, the Tigers moved into scoring position. A 13-yard pass from Harvey to Dornell Harris, who was named the offensive player of the game, and runs by Harvey, Skeeter Gowen and Paul Wilson set up the Tigers at the 9-yard line. Harvey went the final nine yards on a run around right end. The 65-yard drive early in the second period gave Memphis a 14-3 lead at in-

termission. The Tigers kicked off to begin the second half. San Jose State couldn’t move but got a second chance when Gowen fumbled on Memphis’ first offensive play. Bill Brown recovered on the Tiger 24 and a 14-3 U of M lead looked very precarious. The Spartans moved all the way to the Tiger 2yard line. But on fourth down, the Tiger defense buckled down by meeting running back Joe Hicks at the line of scrimmage and slamming him to the Rose Bowl turf to end San Jose’s only real threat. The third period featured strong defensive play by both teams and when the quarter came to an end, the score remained 14-3 in favor of the Tigers. The final stanza opened with San Jose in control of the ball, but an interception and 27yard return by the Tigers’ David Johnson, his second of the game, put the ball at the Trojans’ 18-yard line. Memphis tailback Gowen wasted no time in increasing the Memphis lead as he raced 18 yards to the end zone on the first play from scrimmage. The scoreboard read 21-3 in favor of the Tigers. Lightning struck immediately for Memphis. On SJS’s first play following the Tiger score, back Larry Lloyd fumbled and Memphis’ Carl Taylor recovered. Five plays later, Tiger fullback Clifton Taylor punched the ball in from the 1-yard line and Tiger fans rejoiced with a 28-3 lead and just 10 minutes remaining to play. Frustration mounted for San Jose State as the Memphis defense continued its strong play. Forced to pass the ball with time running out, Tiger cornerback Walter Daggett picked off the Tigers’ fourth interception of the afternoon to halt yet another Trojan drive. San Jose’s only touchdown was set up when a pass from center sailed over punter John Kidwell’s head and was recovered at the Memphis 20-yard line. A quarterback keeper by Brad Metheany with 36 seconds left in the contest got the Spartans their only touchdown. The extra point attempt was wide to the left. The victory over San Jose State marked the second bowl win for the Tigers in school history. The game also marked the end of an era in Tiger football history. Head coach Billy J. Murphy stepped down from his coaching position following the bowl win and dedicated his time to being the

University’s athletic director. The former Marine compiled a record of 91-44-1 over his 14 seasons as head coach at Memphis.

RECORDS

New Orleans, La. - The nation’s longest bowl drought of 32 years ended in a big way for the University of Memphis. The Tigers, which had not participated in a bowl game since 1971, received a bid to the 2003 New Orleans Bowl to face Sun Belt Conference champion North Texas after a stellar 8-4 season. The city of Memphis was electrified. Excitement abounded and Tiger faithful began buying tickets and preparing for the trip to the “Big Easy.” Playing in the first bowl game of the 2003 postseason and before a national television audience on ESPN, the Tigers were challenged to stop the nation’s top running back in Patrick Cobbs of UNT. And Memphis would have to succeed without the services of its top tailback, DeAngelo Williams. Following three days of fun and practice, game day finally arrived on December 16. Memphis won the coin toss and deferred until the second half, giving the Mean Green the ball. UNT gave the ball to Cobbs six times on the opening drive, but were forced to call on kicker Nick Bazaldua when the drive stalled at the Tiger 30-yard line. Bazaldua booted a 47-yard field goal for the UNT 3-0 lead. But this night belonged to the bowl-hungry Tigers and the North Texas lead was short-lived. After U of M receiver Chris Kelley returned the kickoff to the Memphis 34-yard line, junior quarterback and New Orleans native Danny Wimprine took over. When rushes by Darron White and Derron Parquet failed to gain yardage, Wimprine went up top and connected with wideout Darren Garcia for 63 yards to the UNT 6-yard line. Three plays later, Wimprine kept the ball and raced seven yards into the end zone for the go-ahead score. The Tiger defense, having had a taste of the North Texas offense, returned to the field determined to shut down the Mean Green. Three plays later, punter Brad Kadlubar kicked the ball back

to the Tigers. But possible disaster struck on the Tigers’ next possession as tailback Parquet was knocked out of the game with a shoulder injury. Memphis was forced to put the ball in the hands of walk-on back LaKendus Cole to win the game. Midway through the second quarter, North Texas was forced to punt and the Memphis offense got the ball at the Memphis 24. Powered by the running of Cole and the passing of Wimprine, the Tigers drove the ball to the UNT 10-yard line before Wimprine found Kelley in the end zone for the team’s second score of the game. Stephen Gostkowski added the extra point, and the Tiger lead was 14-3. Lightning soon struck again. On the ensuing kickoff, Memphis’ Shaka Hill stripped the ball from returner Kevin Moore and Cato Mott recovered at the UNT 8-yard line. After three plays, Gostkowski was called on and connected on a 21-yard field goal. The Tigers went to the locker room with a 17-3 halftime lead. The third stanza of the game became a defensive battle, and both teams were unable to move the ball until the two-minute mark. The Mean Green, starting near midfield, marched 58 yards in six plays with Cobbs going the final 35 yards for their first touchdown of the night. Suddenly the score read Memphis 17, North Texas 10 as the third quarter ended. With 12:28 left in the contest, Memphis regained the ball at its own 38-yard line. Wimprine hit receiver Darron White for 20 yards, and fullback Robert Douglas gained three on his first carry of the game. After a facemask penalty against UNT, Cole had gains of two yards and 14 yards to the Mean Green 5-yard line. On second-and-goal, the sophomore from Houston High in Memphis burst up the middle for the touchdown and a 24-10 lead. It was Cole’s first collegiate touchdown and gave Memphis an insurmountable lead. North Texas fought hard, and with 2:26 left in the game, scored again on Cobb’s run of two yards. But the Tigers immediately pushed the Mean Green down field for another score. This one iced the victory that had been so long awaited. With Cole gaining yards on the ground and Wimprine connecting with receivers Mario Pratcher and John Doucette, Memphis moved within field goal range, and Gostkowski brought on the celebration with a 42-yard kick. As the final seconds ticked off the clock, the players gave head coach Tommy West the traditional cooler bath and then carried their coach


GMAC BOWL • 2004

RECORDS

BOWLING GREEN 52 MEMPHIS 35 Ladd Peebles Stadium (40,646) December 22, 2004 Mobile, Ala. - In an aerial battle before a rain-drenched 29,500 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, Memphis’ Danny Wimprine and Bowling Green’s Omar Jacobs put on a show for the ESPN national television audience. In the end, Jacobs won the shootout in leading the Falcons to a high-scoring 52-35 GMAC Bowl victory over the Tigers. Jacobs, the GMAC Bowl MVP, connected on 26-of-44 passes for 365 yards and five touchdowns. Not to be outdone, Wimprine was just as impressive. The Tigers’ senior quarterback was 26-of-39 passing for 324 yards and four touchdowns. Each signal-caller had one interception. Wimprine and Jacobs received help from each team’s running game. For the Tigers, DeAngelo Williams, the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year, carried the ball 18 times for 120 yards, including an impressive 31-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Williams missed the final quarter after breaking his right fibula in the third period. P.J. Pope aided the Falcons’ cause with 151 rushing yards on 28 carries and two scores. The offensive fireworks started almost from the opening kickoff. After Bowling Green held the Tigers on their first possession, the Falcons took over on their own 41. Nine plays later, Pope found the end zone from a yard out for a 7-0 Bowling Green lead. However, the Falcons were not done. On the ensuing kickoff, Bowling Green pulled some trickery out of the playbook early with an onsides kick. The Falcons recovered the kick, and the Bowling Green offense was back in business. Jacobs directed a four-play, 52-yard drive in only 45 seconds to give the Falcons a 14-0 lead just over five minutes into the contest. The score came when Jacobs connected with Charles Sharon from 18 yards out. Memphis got its second possession of the game and took little time cutting the Bowling Green lead in half. The Tigers went 80 yards in

seven plays, and the drive culminated in a Wimprine-to-John Doucette 42-yard touchdown toss with 6:51 left in the first quarter. With the game taking on a back-and-forth nature, the Falcons answered immediately. Jacobs led Bowling Green on a six-play, 68-yard drive over the next 2:05 to put the Falcons ahead 217. Jacobs hooked up with Sharon for a 36-yard scoring toss. In the second quarter, the Tigers scored 17 seconds into the period on a Wimprine 60-yard pass to Chris Kelley. The score began a five-touchdown quarter that ended with the Falcons holding a 35-28 halftime lead. Memphis was able to pull even at 28-all on a Williams’ 31-yard touchdown scamper with 3:37 left. Bowling Green, though, had one final answer before halftime. Jacobs threw his fourth touchdown pass of the first half when he found Steve Sanders in the end zone with only :37 on the clock. The score gave the Falcons a 35-28 lead and the momentum heading into the second half. After the break, Bowling Green took control of the game. The Falcons scored the lone touchdown in the third quarter -- Jacob’s fifth touchdown pass -- and added 10 points in the final quarter before Memphis’ last score with under five minutes to play for the 52-35 final. Tim Goodwell finished the game with 10 total tackles (five solo), two TFL and a quarterback sack to lead the Tiger defense. Jovon Burkes led the Bowling Green defense with 11 hits (six solo) and two TFL. Wimprine went over 10,000 yards passing and finished his career with nearly every Tiger passing record. The Tiger quarterback tops the Memphis record book for career passing yards (10,215), completions (808), attempts (1,469) and touchdowns (81). Before his third quarter injury, Williams went over 4,000 career rushing yards. He has 4,062 yards which is No. 1 on the Tiger career rushing list. The 100-yard GMAC Bowl performance was the 24th 100-yard rushing game of his career.

DETROIT, Mich. - It was the holiday season, and the Memphis Tiger football team gave its fans a Merry Christmas – even though it came a day later. Behind a DeAngelo Williams 238-yard rushing performance and three Stephen Gostkowski field goals, the Tigers posted their second postseason victory in three seasons with a 38-31 win over Akron in the 2005 Motor City Bowl. The game was played at Ford Field, the site of the NFL’s 2006 Super Bowl in early February. Williams, who was named the Motor City Bowl MVP, compiled his bowl record-setting 238 yards on 31 carries and scored three touchdowns. Gostkowski hit field goals of 32, 25 and 50 yards, and the 50-yard effort set a Motor City Bowl mark. The way the game started gave no indication it would end up being a 38-31 shootout. The Memphis offense sputtered at the start, and the Tigers relied on their defense and punter Michael Gibson’s foot. The Tiger defense allowed the Zips only three points, despite having two first-quarter drives deep in Memphis territory. Akron got the field goal on its second drive, but on the first trip across the 50 yard line, the Zips’ series was halted at the Memphis 25 when Tim Goodwell and Rod Smith stopped Brett Biggs on fourth-and-1. Gibson played just as important a role in the first quarter with two long punts – 51 and 49 yards – that pinned Akron inside its own 10 yard line both times. After watching the defense keep the Tigers in the game in the first quarter, the Memphis offense got on track in the second frame. Williams, who gained only 19 yards in the first quarter, picked it up on the Tigers’ first scoring drive with 34 yards on the ground. Tiger quarterback Maurice Avery also found his groove in the second quarter, hitting Ernest Williams on a 42-yard strike to the Akron 23. Four plays later, Gostkowski connected on a 32yard field goal to tie the contest at 3-all. The Tigers kept it going. The defense held the Zips to three-and-out on their next series, and the Memphis offense continued to roll. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Avery found his target in Ryan Scott for a 50-yard gain to the Akron 2 yard line. Williams then pushed the ball across the goal line for the first Memphis lead of the game. After Gostkowski’s PAT, the Tigers led 10-3. With just over four minutes left before halftime, Ak-

ron got the ball with an opportunity to cut into the Tiger lead, but it didn’t happen. The Tiger offense took over with 2:30 on the clock and took advantage of another scoring chance. After two rushes netted a minus-3 yards, Avery took back to the air and again hit Scott for a long gain – this time, 48 yards – to the Akron 27. From there, the Tigers moved the ball to the Zips 7, where Gostkowski hit his second field goal for a 13-3 Tiger halftime lead. The early portion of the second half looked no different for the Akron offense. Stymied by the Tigers in the first half, the Zips were unable to get past their own 40 yard line on the first two possessions. Aided by two Akron defensive pass interference calls, the Tigers moved down to the Akron 2, where Williams scored his second touchdown for a 20-3 Memphis lead. With only three minutes left in the third quarter and down 20-3, the Zips scored via the air on the ensuing drive. Zips quarterback Luke Getsy was 6-of-7 passing for 80 yards on the series that resulted in a 46-yard scoring strike to Jabari Arthur to cut the Tiger lead to 20-10. The game moved into the fourth quarter, and the shootout began. Gostkowski got it started with a 50-yard field goal for a 23-10 Tiger lead. Akron responded with a quick three-play, 80-yard drive to cut the Memphis lead to 23-17. The big play was a Getsy-to-Biggs 72-yard scoring strike. The Tigers then answered with their own big play in the form of Williams. With the Zips closing in and also gaining momentum, Memphis’ All-America running back took a handoff and raced 67 yards to the Akron 2. On the next play, Williams scored his third touchdown. Avery added the two-point conversion for a 31-17 Memphis advantage. The Tigers added another score on an Ernest Williams 5-yard run to increase the lead to 38-17 with only 6:38 left. However, the Zips did not quit. Akron scored two touchdowns in under six minutes to pull to within seven at 38-31 with only 50 seconds left. The Zips’ first drive took nearly five minutes, and ended when Getsy hit Domenik Hixon from 14 yards out. The Akron special teams then executed a perfect on-side kick, and recovered the ball at midfield with 1:45 left. One minute later, Getsy connected with Arthur for a 19-yard touchdown pass to cut the Tiger lead to 38-31. The Zips tried their magic one more time, but this time, the Tiger special teams recovered the on-side kick, and Memphis ran out the clock for the win. Goodwell, who received the UAW Lineman Award, led the Tiger defense with 12 tackles, five TFLs and two sacks.

Three University of Memphis football teams have gone undefeated since the Tigers first took up the sport in 1912. The most recent Memphis team to go through a season without a defeat was the 1963 squad which ended the year 9-0-1. Memphis began its football program in 1912 and compiled a 1-2-1 record under head coach Clyde Wilson. The Tigers, then known as West Tennessee State Normal School, played Memphis University School to a scoreless tie in the first football game played at Memphis on October 5. The Tiger football squad notched its first victory three weeks later on October 26 against Bolton Agricultural 13-0. They eventually lost the final two games of the season to CBC and MUS. The first undefeated team was coach Zach Curlin’s 1929 squad which posted an 8-0-2 record, scoring 146 points and limiting the Tigers’ 10 opponents to a mere 27 points. Memphis, which was captained by Slick Headden and Joe Koch, captured the Mississippi Valley Conference Championship with that undefeated season. Coach Allyn McKeen fielded one of the nation’s highest scoring teams in 1938, a season which saw the Tigers finish with a 10-0-0 record. Memphis scored 281 points during the year, while only yielding 41 points. The biggest margin of victory was a 68-0 thrashing of Cumberland College. The Tigers also defeated Arkansas A&M 50-0 later in the season. Roland McMackin captained the 1938 Tigers. The 1963 Memphis football team had only a scoreless tie with Ole Miss between them and a perfect season. The Tigers finished with a 9-0-1 record under head coach Billy J. Murphy. Unlike the 1938 team, which was noted for its offense, this team made its mark as a defensive club. There were five shutouts, and the five remaining teams scored only 52 points. The Tigers, captained by Richard Saccoccia, rolled up 199 points. The 1963 squad had wins over Southern Miss (28-7), Tulsa (28-15), North Texas State (21-0), West Texas State (29-14), Mississippi State (17-10), Louisville (25-0), South Carolina (9-0), Chattanooga (13-0) and Houston (29-6). Senior fullback Dave Casinelli led the NCAA in rushing and scoring during the 1963 season. Casinelli rushed for 1,016 yards and scored 84 points. He is the only Tiger back to win the national rushing and scoring titles. Undefeated Tigers 1929 8-0-2 Zach Curlin 1938 10-0-0 Allyn McKeen 1963 9-0-1 Billy J. Murphy
