    GoTigers247's Tigers on Tap Ep 11: UNT Review/Temple Preview

    GoTigers247's Tigers on Tap Ep 11: UNT Review/Temple Preview

    Welcome to Tigers on Tap Episode 11.
    In this episode TJ and Trey review the Tigers' 44-34 win over the University of North Texas, and preview the upcoming conference matchup against the Temple Owls on Saturday, October 1st.
    In the first segment, TJ and Trey break down the Tigers' win over UNT. Both guys were disappointed in the play of the offense. UNT came into the game giving up an average of close to 500 yards a game, but were outgained by UNT 473-334. QB Seth Henigan struggled during the game to find open receivers and was sacked three times during the game. The defense, overall, had a better game than the offense. Even though they gave up 473 yards of total offense to UNT, 5th year seniors Zay Cullens and Jaylon Allen scored touchdowns for the defense with two interceptions returned for a touchdown. Trey and TJ both believe the secondary for the Tigers will keep getting picked apart unless the defensive line creates more pressure. They both reiterate, though, that wins are the most important thing, no matter the final score. In the end, even after a disappointing game, the Tigers go into their matchup against Temple with a 3-1 record.
    In the second segment, TJ and Trey preview the upcoming matchup against Temple. One notable starter for the Owls this year is true freshman EJ Warner who has assumed the starting quarterback role taking over for D'Wan Mathis. TJ does not believe Temple has the roster to hang with the Tigers in this game, but they are concerned by the play of the defense as of late. EJ Warner is a good enough quarterback to take advantage of bad cornerback play and a lack of pressure by the defensive line. Both guys believe Memphis will win the game, but there are so many questions left up in the air about the Tigers' team, guessing a final score is a hard task. TJ believes the Tigers will win 38-17. Trey predicts the Tigers to win 49-21.

    GoTigers247's Behind Enemy Lines Ep 5; Ryan Wallen w/ OwlsDaily.com

    Welcome to GoTigers247's Behind Enemy Lines Episode 5. In this episode we are joined by Ryan Wallen of OwlsDaily.com, the 247Sports affiliate for Temple University.
    In the first segment, Kenny and Ryan discuss the history behind the Temple/Memphis matchup. Both teams have played each other 7 times and Temple currently leads the series 4-3. Ryan discusses how the game between the Tigers and Owls is always a dogfight, and no matter each team's win/loss record, both team's fan base can expect a hard fought game. Ryan talks about the coaching change that Temple has experienced this year with the hiring of Stan Drayton as the head coach. He describes Drayton as a coach that wants to reignite the ground and pound mentality in the Temple Owls. He believes that over the past few years, the Temple football team has had moments where they have given up at the end of a game, and how that is so against the culture of Philadelphia and Temple University. The Temple team comes into this matchup with a 2-2 record, but Ryan believes that if a few things had gone the Owls way, they could easily be at 3-1 on the season.
    Ryan discusses the emergence of EJ Warner as the starting quarterback for Temple. He has replaced former Temple quarterback, D'Wan Mathis, and has shown flashes of the strong pedigree he comes from as the son of former NFL MVP Kurt Warner. EJ has taken major steps to show he is ready to play even as a true freshman, but has moments where fans see his youth show itself.
    In the second segment, Kenny and Ryan discuss certain matchups they are looking out for in this game. Ryan is concerned with how Temple's secondary is going to adjust to playing a quarterback with the accuracy that Seth Henigan has. Temple has not faced a quarterback of Seth's caliber all year, and the Temple secondary has consistently been burned by lesser quarterbacks. Temple's strongest unit on their team is their defensive line and linebacker corp. They are third in the country in sacks (15) and boast a defensive line that aspires to have multiple players playing on Sunday in a few years. The Tigers' offensive line has struggled to protect Seth Henigan and open up holes for the running game, and with two starting lineman "day to day" with injuries, the Tigers will have to play above their heads to keep Temple's defense out of the backfield.
    Ryan believes that the Tigers have the offensive firepower to run away from Temple in this game, but he would also not be surprised if Temple kept the game close.

    Ti20 Game Balls Episode 4: Joe Doyle, Jaylon Allen & Zay Cullens

    Ti20 Game Balls Episode 4: Joe Doyle, Jaylon Allen & Zay Cullens

    Welcome to Ti20 Game Balls Episode 4!
    In this episode, GoTigers247 hands out game balls from the 44-34 win over North Texas to punter Joe Doyle, defensive end Jaylon Allen and linebacker Xavier Cullens.
    In the first segment, punter Joe Doyle receives the first game ball. Joe punted 8 times for 400 yards and 3 punts downed within the opponents' 10-yard line. Joe talks with GT247 about his 2021 season with the Tigers that found him having to assume field goal kicking duties as well as the punter role. He also shares his approach during a game when he knows that he will play a big role in helping flip the field for the defense. Most football fans do not want to see a punter play a big role in a game, so how does Joe handle the pressure of having to come into the game after a disappointing offense possession? Joe explains the mechanics of punting a ball down to the opponents' goal line and what preparation goes into knowing yardage and wind.
    In the second segment, defensive end Jaylon Allen receives the second game ball. This is Jaylon's 2nd game ball received from GoTigers247 this year. Jaylon ended the game with 2 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 sack, and 1 interception returned for a touchdown. Jaylon talks about what he saw in the pass play that he intercepted, and how he knew he would score once he caught the ball. He also shares his thoughts on where the defense is at this point in the year. He wants to see the Tigers' defense finish games the way they started. He believes the defense gets a bit lax at the end of games, and allows teams to score silly points at the end of the game.
    In the third segment, linebacker Xavier Cullens receives the third game ball. Xavier ended the game with 8 tackles, 4 solo, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 interception returned for a touchdown. Xavier talks about when he knew the Tigers' defense would be successful against UNT on Saturday. He also shares that the Tigers need to continue to communicate well on the field and how if they shore up their tackling game, he knows they can have a very successful year on the defensive end.

    GoTigers247's Behind Enemy Lines Ep 4: MeanGreen247's Reed Smith

    GoTigers247's Behind Enemy Lines Ep 4: MeanGreen247's Reed Smith

    In episode 4 of Behind Enemy Lines, GoTigers247 is joined by Reed Smith, the site manager and beat writer for MeanGreen247.com, the 247Sports affiliate for the University of North Texas. North Texas enters the game against the Tigers with a record of 2-2, while the Tigers come in at 2-1.
    Reed shares that the mood and vibe around UNT is not good right now. Coming off of a miserable second half against UNLV, fans of the Mean Green are upset with the play of the team and more specifically the play calling.
    One of the main storylines coming into the year for UNT was the quarterback competition coming in to spring camp. Obviously the UNT quarterback competition and Memphis quarterback competition has one tie that runs through both of them: Grant Gunnell. After leaving Memphis in the spring, Grant transferred to UNT and immediately became the main challenger for the quarterback position against Austin Aune. Austin has been the starting quarterback at UNT for two years, but most fans were extremely upset that Austin was named the starter. Austin has performed well this year so far, so he looks to be the starter moving forward the whole year. Austin's story is unique in college football. He spent six years in the Yankee farm system, and is now a 29-year old, junior for the UNT Mean Green.
    Reed goes into detail about how UNT has been a tale of two halves. Their record is 2-2, with all four games ending differently each time. But not only do the Mean Green struggle to find consistency from game to game, Reed mentions that they struggle finding consistency from half to half. The UNLV game was a perfect example. The game was close in the first half, but something happened at halftime where the play calling became bland and the defense struggled from the start.
    Reed mentions that a big stat line he is looking to is whether or not UNT can convert on third and long plays on offense. Obviously this has been a major storyline for the Tiger defense this year as well. UNT has struggled to convert third downs and the Tigers have struggled to get off the field. This statistical point will be huge for both teams on Saturday.
    Reed believes that the game will either be an offensive shootout or Memphis will run away with the game. He expects Seth Henigan to have a huge game due to the fact that UNT has struggled to stop any quarterback they have played against.

The absolute best source for Memphis Tigers basketball news and analysis.

They are extremely knowledgeable. No one else who covers the team comes close in terms of giving accurate insight into recruitment. That’s my favorite part of the pod.
