The #1 & #2 teams in the nation will face off in a big intra-state showdown Saturday night. Surprisingly, it won’t feature Duke vs. North Carolina.
#1 Memphis host #2 Tennessee in an ESPN primetime showcase. The Tigers will be fighting to keep their undefeated season alive & gain some more respect, while the Vols are looking to avenge Peyton Manning’s junior-season loss at the Liberty Bowl back in ‘96.
And the Colts QB is expected to be in the FedEx Forum crowd, along with little brother Eli. The “SportsCenter” guys even mentioned on Friday night that Priscilla Presley will also be in attendance. (We thoroughly enjoyed her work in “The Naked Gun” trilogy.)
Can’t wait to hear the P.A. guy announce, “Mrs. Elvis has left the building.”
We wonder if UT coach Bruce Pearl will resort to any psychological warfare in his effort to topple the Tigers. Maybe he’ll wheel out John Chaney to have a pre-game chat with Calipari.
Or worse, Bruce might show up courtside dressed like this:
Frightening, isn’t it?
