The latest clue on Downtown's newest restaurant is "We pull flavors from around the world so you can taste the world here." I've given up on guessing. The only thing that can be confirmed is restaurant will be in the Westin.
The weather is looking perfect for the RiverArtsFest this weekend. If you haven't been to this festival, be sure to check it out.
A lot of the focus has been on the poor state of Memphis football, but there are some positives with Memphis athletics right now. Two other teams are ranked for the good things they are doing. Memphis basketball is ranked #9 in the first USA/ESPN Coaches Poll of the season and Tigers women's soccer team is ranked in the Top 10 in two polls.
Larry Porter's football team is still ranked in ESPN's Bottom 10 poll, coming in at #4. The beauty of this weekend's game against Tulane is that someone has to win. The Tigers have a chance. Ole Miss is #10.
Here's the picks for this week.
Last Week: 5-1
Season: 31-11 (74%)
Tulane over Memphis
Austin College over Rhodes
LSU over Auburn
Wisconsin over Michigan State
New Orleans Saints over Indianapolis Colts
Tennessee Titans over Houston Texans
Weekly Liberty Bowl Projection: Houston vs Tennessee-Knoxville
Houston looks to be the class of Conference USA, although SMU may give them problems. Mississippi State may only win or two more games this year, so the Vols should get the nod.
Quick Liberty Bowl note - KC and the Sunshine Band will be this year's half time entertainment.
