The Memphis Tigers are the worst team in the country, and it’s not even close.
On Saturday, they came into their game against Arkansas State as more than a two-touchdown underdog and responded by losing 47 to 3. Arkansas State isn’t a slouch by any means, but they’re also obviously not a powerhouse.
Just how bad has it gotten for the Tigers? Well, really bad. REALLY, REALLY BAD.
