Big Jack’s Rhymes: Tigers and Red Wolves

When the Tigers play in Jonesboro it’s always the same,
A knock-down drag out type of a game.

And it’ll be more intense this time for the simple reason,
Both teams will be looking for their first win of the season.

The odds makers think the U of M will be in a bind
With the Mississippi State loss in the back of their mind.

I don’t think so, in fact I have a hunch
The Tigers will land a sucker punch.

Many Memphis fans will make the case
That losing to the Red Wolves would be a disgrace.

The players feel the same so here’s what’s in store,
Arkansas State you had better bar the door.

Because the Tigers are in a combative mode
The word in simple: lock and load.

I’m so sure of a Tigers win it can now be said,
I won’t go to the game, I’ll take a nap instead.

P.S. My prediction for the game is Memphis 24, Arkansas State 17
