Are you nuts... Timmy Boy or is it just something in the water in Vegas? He just got here! Stay in Vegas where you'll blend in with the rest of the wackos.

We now know that Larry Porter was NOT the number one choice offered the Head Coach's job at Memphis. RC Johnson offered the job to Rick Stockstill of MTSU first. He turned it down. RC apparently then offered the job to Larry...who had absolutely NO head coaching experience at ANY level, including high school! Nor was he ever a college offensive or defensive coordinator! A couple weeks ago, local Memphis sports talk radio show host Gary Parrish called for a "buyout" of Larry's contract at the end of this season (2010; Porter's first). Gary's argument: LP has proven he cannot be a head coach. This fall's Tigers were ranked 182 of 245 Division I college football programs in last week's Sagarin computer rankings....62 FCS (DI-AA) were ranked ahead of them. How about if both RC and Larry depart at the end of this season?! U Memphis has a choice: get SERIOUS about college football or drop the program.

Larry Porter is a joke as a coach.I attended the game against Miss State of which I was pulling for and it was pathetic. They had 2 penalties to start the first drive and then to back it up with a illegal receiver downfield. That is coaching problems.. I bought season tickets for 20+ years and refused this year to buy them and in fact my kids are going to Miss State and I am supporting that school now. It hurts me to see how bad the football program has become and the national joke the team has become.

LARRY PORTERS ATTITUDE IS THAT HE IS THE GREATEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD!!!! He has alienated the whole TIGER NATION and turned everyone against him. By the end of the season you will have to pay people to attend the games...

We have had season tickets in our family for the last 36 years...this really hurts...we decide when we saw the players give up on Porter that it was time for us too...if Memphis wants to get into a bcs Conference they are going to have to promise to build an on campus stadium within the next 4 years also fire Porter before the Austin pea game. Lets hope the big 12 stays together it would be a great fit for us if we can recruit better

You know I am sick of hearing about the on campus stadium... What the heck does that accomplish if you cant win.. That is not going to do anything for a bunch of LOSERS!!! If they cant win in the Liberty Bowl that cant win in an on campus stadium so lets drop that crap. Memphis doesnt need to worry about a Big 12, Big East or any other conference..To start with they cant win in C-USA much less any other conf. I have spent many of thousands of dollars to support Tiger Football and not just tickets but SPONSORSHIPS... I knew Tommy very very well and in fact was a good friend of him and his family and the problem with the program rests in ONE MANS LAP...RC JOHNSON... but also Memphis is a basketball school and always will be and Josh Pastner is a great coach for the team.. I still support the basketball but NEVER WILL I EVER GIVE ANOTHER DIME TO WATCH A TEAM GET THEIR BRAINS BEAT OUT... 2 weeks in a row 600+ yards offense by Miss State and then Ark State... GO FIGURE you have a coach that says MEMPHIS THIS YEAR WILL BE LIKE NITE AND DAY of the team last year... I agree with that... THEY ARE WORSE!!

You idiots don't know anything about football that gambling addict John Rainey or punk ass gary parrish. You fired Tommy West and you forget that the team had not had a winning record for over 35 years. They had white coaches with (Experience) then but did not do squat for 35 years. Larry Porter is OVERQUALIFIED for this job but look what he has to work with freshman and Fred Smith's alchoholic son (which I notice 56whbq old codger George "Slumlord" lappides NEVER crtiticizes.
I wonder if race does not factor in? sincethis city hasw no problem with a corrupt white man like Callipari that robs you blind or Dana (Prison # 15624598092) Kirk but not descent hard working Larry Porter.

Hey X-tiger fan

I don't hate Tommy West (He told the truth about John Calapari taking private jets to visit recruits while he had a bus ticket ) All the money went to Calapari and zilch to the football program. Larry Porter will be gone at the end of this year period not because he is such a bad coach but we have no patience to wait 4 years recruiting plus boosters plus capital improvement to have a 25 year run of success no matter who the coach is there has to be more committment to the football program beyond X and Os
