    In episode 57 of Tigers in 20, lead writer and host Christian Fowler and GoTigers247 founder Brooks Hansen discuss the latest in Memphis Tigers basketball and football.

    Fowler and Hansen begin the episode by discussing Memphis quarterback Brady White – who announced on Wednesday night that he will return to Memphis for his redshirt senior season.

    White has been mulling over his options since the Tigers Cotton Bowl loss, and fortunately for Memphis coach Ryan Silverfield and the fanbase he chose to return. White is coming off of a season where he was fourth in the country in yards and eighth in touchdown passes.

    After discussing White's return, Fowler and Hansen discuss Memphis' new defensive coordinator – Mike MacIntyre. The Tigers new defensive coordinator spent 2019 turning around Ole Miss' defense after they were one of the worst in the country in 2018.

    Although Memphis lost a ton of coaches to Florida State, Silverfield has made some home run hires, and the Tigers shouldn't miss a beat in 2020.

    Next, the duo discusses Memphis' huge game against Wichita State on Thursday night. After losing to Georgia, the Tigers will have an opportunity to redeem themselves against the No. 23 team in the country.

    Finally, Fowler and Hansen recap the weekend's Hoopfest and discuss performances from Moussa Cisse and Moussa Diabate among others.

    The duo begins the episode by discussing the Tigers 51-47 win over Tennessee on Saturday. The win was Penny Hardaway's first victory over a top 25 opponent, and it was fitting to come against Rick Barnes and the Vols.

    Instead of folding when Tennessee went up early, they continued to fight and battle back. Fowler and Hansen discuss the ins and outs of the game and how the Tigers knocked off the Vols.
