    Tigers in 20 Episode 60- UConn, DJ Jeffries and NSD

    In episode 60 of Tigers in 20, lead writer and host Christian Fowler is joined by GoTigers247 digital content creator Kenny Stubblefield to discuss Memphis' win over UConn, the impact of DJ Jeffries' injury and National Signing Day among other topics.
    To begin the episode, Fowler and Stubblefield recap Memphis' seven-point win over UConn. The duo both point to reasons why the Tigers were able to pull out the win, including Lance Thomas' second consecutive double-digit game.
    After the discussion of UConn, the GT247 crew discusses how Memphis can overcome the loss of DJ Jeffries. The freshman forward will be out 4-6 weeks with a PCL injury, and Fowler goes in-depth on who he believes must step up in Jeffries' absence.
    Next, Fowler and Stubblefield take a look forward to the Tigers upcoming games inside the FedExForum. Memphis will host Temple and USF this week, and they are both must-win conference games.
    With a 16-5 overall record and a 5-3 record in the AAC, Fowler and Stubblefield explain why the next two games are so important for Penny Hardaway and the Tigers.
    Finally, the duo previews Wednesday's National Signing Day. Ryan Silverfield and the Tigers staff signed 14 players in the Early Signing Period, so the signees will be much smaller on Wednesday.
    Three-star linebacker Davian Mayo and JUCO defensive lineman Maurice White committed to Memphis on Sunday, and they are both expected to sign on Wednesday.

    Tigers in 20 Off the Boards- Brady White Interview

    Tigers in 20 Off the Boards- Brady White Interview

    In this episode of GoTigers247's Off the Boards, lead writer Christian Fowler speaks with Memphis quarterback Brady White – who announced earlier this month that he would be returning to the Bluff City for his final season.
    While back home in California for the holidays, White told GT247 that he spoke at-length with his family and those he trusts most to help him make the decision. At the end of the day, White said he felt like coming back was the best decision for him.
    After discussing his return, Fowler and White move on to talk about White's 2019-2020 season, Ryan Silverfield being hired as head coach and next season.
    Throughout the discussion, White recaps some of the biggest moments from last season, including College GameDay, winning the AAC Championship and competing in a New Year's Six Bowl. White takes Fowler through what it was like on the journey this season, and how he personally responded after the loss to Temple.
    Following the discussion of the magical 12-2 season, White talks about playing for Silverfield and how he is excited to see the train continue to roll. 
    Next, the two start to look forward to next season. With Joey Magnifico, Antonio Gibson and Kedarian Jones all gone, White points out multiple players that he will be looking for to step up next season. 
    No one knows the offensive weapons better than White, and he shares a few names that he believes could make a big impact next season.
    Finally, the two discuss White's importance on education and where he got his drive from. White already has a master's degree, and he is currently working on his doctorate degree, which is obviously extremely rare for a student-athlete.

    Tigers in 20 Episode 59- Can Memphis go on a winning streak?

    Tigers in 20 Episode 59- Can Memphis go on a winning streak?

    In episode 59 of Tigers in 20, lead writer and host Christian Fowler and GoTigers247 founder Brooks Hansen discuss the latest in Memphis Tigers basketball and football.
    To begin the episode, Fowler and Hansen discuss the Tigers two-point victory over UCF on Wednesday night. Although it wasn't a perfect game for Memphis, they came away with the victory, which is all that really mattered.
    Memphis was on a two-game losing streak heading into the matchup against the Knights, so it really did feel like a must-win game.
    With the UCF game now behind them, Memphis coach Penny Hardaway and the Tigers desperately need to string some wins together.
    Fortunately for Memphis, they have a three-game home stretch coming up against UConn, Temple and USF. All three of those game are very winnable, and the Tigers would be sitting at 18-5 and 7-3 in the AAC if they could win the next three.
    Fowler and Hansen detail what Memphis needs to do to put together a winning streak, including continuing to get solid play from Lance Thomas and Boogie Ellis.
    After discussing the UCF game and the next three home games, Hansen takes a look at how similar this season is to Josh Pastner's second season. Pastner brought in a top-five recruiting class, but Jelan Kendrick left before playing in any meaningful games much like James Wiseman.
    The parallels are honestly pretty shocking, and it shows that the expectations may have been too high for Memphis this season after Wiseman announced he was leaving. 
    To end the episode, Fowler and Hansen discuss expectations for the team and Hardaway, and they also quickly take a look at how Memphis is making a great case for five-stars Greg Brown and Jalen Green.

    Tigers in 20 Off the Boards- Antonio Gibson Interview

    Tigers in 20 Off the Boards- Antonio Gibson Interview

    In this episode of Off the Boards, lead writer Christian Fowler speaks with former Memphis Tigers running back, wide receiver and kick returner Antonio Gibson.
    Gibson finished his season with 1,749 all-purpose yards and 16 touchdowns, and he led the South in rushing in last weekend's Senior Bowl. Despite spending more time at receiver than running back, Gibson is preparing for the 2020 NFL Draft as a running back.
    The explosive athlete has the potential to help an NFL team on both offense and special teams, which certainly raises his upside.
    Throughout the interview, Fowler and Gibson discuss the former Tigers breakout 2019 season, his massive performance against SMU, the Senior Bowl and his preparation for the NFL Draft among multiple other topics.

    Tigers in 20 Episode 58- Worth the Wait

    Tigers in 20 Episode 58- Worth the Wait

    In episode 58 of Tigers in 20, lead writer and host Christian Fowler and GoTigers247 founder Brooks Hansen discuss the latest in Memphis Tigers basketball and football.
    Fowler and Hansen begin the episode by discussing the new starting lineup Memphis coach Penny Hardaway has used in the last two games. In last Thursday's win over Cincinnati, the starters combined for 50 of the Tigers 60 points, and the crew explains what they like about the new starters.
    With Alex Lomax and Malcolm Dandridge now in as starters, Fowler explains how this lineup brings a different level of toughness to the floor. Hansen discusses the lineups ability to start games quickly, and he also explains why he hopes DJ Jeffries continues to play like he did against Cincinnati.
    Next, Fowler and Hansen address the Tigers bench and debate how the bench can contribute more moving forward.
    Freshmen Damion Baugh and Boogie Ellis have been ineffective lately, and the GT247 crew discusses what they can do to make more of an impact moving forward. Memphis now has a solid starting lineup, but they still need more help from the bench.
    Finally, the duo answers questions from the boards about their favorite moments in Tigers history, the over/under for wins for the football team next season and Isaiah Stokes among other topics.

    Tigers in 20 Episode 57- Brady White is coming back!

    Tigers in 20 Episode 57- Brady White is coming back!

    In episode 57 of Tigers in 20, lead writer and host Christian Fowler and GoTigers247 founder Brooks Hansen discuss the latest in Memphis Tigers basketball and football.
    Fowler and Hansen begin the episode by discussing Memphis quarterback Brady White – who announced on Wednesday night that he will return to Memphis for his redshirt senior season.
    White has been mulling over his options since the Tigers Cotton Bowl loss, and fortunately for Memphis coach Ryan Silverfield and the fanbase he chose to return. White is coming off of a season where he was fourth in the country in yards and eighth in touchdown passes.
    After discussing White's return, Fowler and Hansen discuss Memphis' new defensive coordinator – Mike MacIntyre. The Tigers new defensive coordinator spent 2019 turning around Ole Miss' defense after they were one of the worst in the country in 2018.
    Before going to Ole Miss, MacIntyre was the head coach at Colorado where he led the Buffs to a Pac-12 South Division Title in 2016. In the same year, MacIntyre was also named the Associated Press Coach of the Year. 
    Although Memphis lost a ton of coaches to Florida State, Silverfield has made some home run hires, and the Tigers shouldn't miss a beat in 2020.
    Next, the duo discusses Memphis' huge game against Wichita State on Thursday night. After losing to Georgia, the Tigers will have an opportunity to redeem themselves against the No. 23 team in the country.
    Finally, Fowler and Hansen recap the weekend's Hoopfest and discuss performances from Moussa Cisse and Moussa Diabate among others.
