I've never seen anything like it. There was no time left on the clock. And the pass flew 52 improbable yards. When the mass of players jumped into the air, I thought surely a Tiger would be able to snag it. Surely, a guy in a blue shirt would come down with the ball and our 23-20 victory would be saved. But fate disagreed, and an Arkansas State player snatched the ball out of the air and killed our hopes of turning around the season with a victory. It was remarkable and amazing and heartbreaking. It was the straw that broke the back of any hope that the Tigers might not suck quite so completely. They do. Suck. Completely.

When does basketball season start?

Twas sad...I thought surely they could get a win off Arkansas State of all people. I wonder if Tommy West isn't long for this world?

Take heart...I believe Midnight Madness was sometime last week. We'll (hopefully) have a reason to cheer the Tigers again soon.

I feel your pain. It does suck when your team sucks, been there many, many times.

My dad did go to Arkansas State for a year though. I know that makes you feel all better about it.
