Big Jack’s Rhymes: Another Game… Another Loss…

I’ll tell you something that’s on the level
Tiger football has gone to the Devil.

Great Scott. Great Scott. I’ll say it twice.
We lost by 22 points to—of all people—Rice.

They hit us hard right off the bat.
We came out, as usual, very, very flat.

This can’t be true but here’s my call
I think they scored once when we had the ball.

Our defense played poorly, no, it was worse,
We seemed to be permanently stuck in reverse.

If I were to give the Tigers a grade, I have in mind,
An F-minus and that may be a little to kind.

Meanwhile back in Memphis they are of one accord,
The season is a bust and there is no drawing board.

But there is money to be made, easy as falling out of bed
Just bet that the other team covers the spread.
