Now it is official. After years of spirited conversation, debate, and full fledged arguments we know which team runs Hoop City.  Memphis was  “Tiger Town” for so long that most doubted that this day would ever happen.  The Memphis Grizzlies are now the favorite team in Memphis, politely knocking the Tigers basketball program from the tops of the ranks.  What is more impressive is that Justin Fuente and the University of Memphis football team (fresh off of an American Athletic Conference Championship) leapfrogged Tigers basketball also.

Memphis Grizzlies, First Place: 68%
University of Memphis Football, Second Place:13.4%
University of Memphis Basketball, Third Place: 11.2%
