    Memphis Report

    Memphis has been great. In reality, this trip isn’t much harder to make than St. Lou. With that stated, Memphis is much friendlier and has been a great visit for the entire family.

    I hope someone took a tour of Sun Records while there! That place is a music-lover's heaven on earth!

    Yes, and have not missed in over 15 years. I’d be shocked if there were 8-10k at the Memphis game. Certainly not at the Memphis games prior to the Saturday game.

    Great time in Memphis, locals were great and always asked if we were enjoying ourselves and offered suggestions of things to do. KC BBQ still tops, but not by much. Graceland- expensive but worth it. If the Cincy fans wouldn't have been there it would have been perfect!

    Dan, I’m assuming you were in Memphis? I’d take your assessment since I never went to St. Louis, but that seemed like about 8-10 thousand of them

    It’s closer than St. Louis, a better town than St. Louis and i’ve Seen how many we bring to St. Louis. I don’t think it’s a stretch at all.

    I do wonder if we’ll ever hit St. Louis numbers again. It’s a lot tougher for the fans who want to make the NCAA trip without the extra weekend in between the conference and the NCAA tournaments.

    While our fanship WAS great, I'd say it's a stretch that WSU has more in DFW than Memphis had IN Memphis...

    I would agree with that assessment. Us and Cinci were about the same, perhaps we had a few more. Then after that, not a lot of other fans.

    I was thinking OKC was in the discussion at one point? That would be great. We could almost commute to the games!

    Lets give Dallas Fort Worth a shot, will be the easiest drive our fan base has ever had to get to a conference tournament. I expect with a strong regular season we could get 5,000 fans there.

    Hot take: St. Louis doesn’t hold a candle to Memphis as a host city. EVERYTHING is within walking distance of the arena. Food, entertainment, history, culture. Literally everything. Word of advice, skip The Rendezvous and go to Central bbq on Butler. After that, take a very short walk to the Lorraine Motel.
