In a story that can only scream Memphis Football, the University of Memphis released their 2013 media guide on Wednesday morning.  No, that’s not the story.  What makes this a story is what is on the cover of the guide.

Coming off four consecutive dismal years of football, in which they went a combined 9-39, you would think the athletic department at Memphis would want to drum up some excitement around the football program.  But, how would they do that, you may ask?

Coming off a season in which the Tigers went 4-8, winning more games than the previous 2 seasons combined, there is some hope that now 2nd year Head Coach Justin Fuente may be turning the program around.  Time to get excited, right?!?

So in all of the brilliancy that is the Memphis Athletic Department, Senior Punter Tom Hornsey is the face of the 2013 Football Media Guide.  Congratulations, Memphis!  Never change!
