2010-2011 Record: 1-11 (0-8)
Projected 2011-2012 Record: 4-8 (2-6)
Key Players: Ryan Williams (QB) Sophomore; Marcus Rucker (WR) Junior
Expect another disappointing season from the Memphis Tigers, who were the league's worst team a year ago. However, I can see Memphis performing on a different level this year. Starting QB Ryan Williams has more experience and will connect with leading receiver Marcus Rucker many times throughout the year.
They will certainly win more games. The Tigers have a weak schedule including teams such as Arkansas State, Austin Peay, Middle Tennessee, Rice and even Tulane. There are plenty of opportunities for Memphis to win. The question is, are they up for the challenge?
Projected C-USA Finish: 12th (sixth in East)
