Tuesday (Evening) Question

Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is ...

Memphis has big receivers.  The Rebels are returning a statistically inconsistent secondary.  Who wakes up on Monday with a little more confidence than they had on Sunday morning?

Although he experienced a sophomore slump in 2008, Duke Calhoun was a 6' 4" top recruit that the Rebels lost to Memphis.  Jermaine McKenzie (6' 3") is a highly-touted transfer from Miami not eligible per the NCAA - what the eff is their deal?  Carlos Singleton is a 6'8" transfer from Ole Miss.  Their size alone creates some match-up problems for the Rebels.  

It's nothing new for one opposing unit to think that they have the edge over another one.  I expect that these units expect to dominate their counterparts, and, obviously, that won't be true for one of them.
