According to Sports Illustrated’s list ranking of all 68 NCAA Tournament schools in order  by “coolest” alumnus (or alumna), Memphis’ own Jerry “The King” Lawler is not as cool as 64 other celebrities including Bob Saget, DJ Qualls, Ken Jeong, Adam Vinatieri, Kirstie Alley, George Wendt, John Lutz, Penny Marshall, Zach Galifinakis, Benson, Steve Guttenberg and fellow WWE superstar The Big Show.

How can this be? Is this list just another example of the national media not respecting the Memphis Tigers? Should Lawler challenge the staff of Sports Illustrated to a no disqualification match at WrestleMania?
