With me it’s as plain as the nose on your face
It’s the NCAA or nothing-there’s no second place.
If you win the NIT you can tell all the hicks
Take a good look at us-we’re number sixty six.
So when the Tigers lost to Houston that was it
The season was over, it was time to quit.
Memphis had a great run but came up short
It’s time for the experts to make their report.
But on second thought how about this:
An NIT meeting with the Rebels of Ole Miss.
It would fill FedEx Forum and if we went full force
Maybe we could knock Ole Miss off their high horse.
It would be a classic,a real drawing card
A fight to the finish with no holds barred.
I love it and we’ll all say grace
For the idiot who said there’s no second place.
