    No one has ever agreed with me that Memphis is gross! I'm glad to see others concur!

    P.S. Texas rules all.

    Like I said, the Christians are very annoying. The fact that they don't realize that Christianity and evolution CAN co-exist baffles me and one of the main reason why I'm not a Christian.

    I agree. The Jersey jokes have been run into the ground. I myself have never been there, but I'm sure there are some nice parts to the state.

    Memphis is definitely rough around the edges, but the food's killer (and the people are too HEYYOOO), there's a ton of cool history, and some pretty cool areas of town if you don't get murdered on your way there.

    haha right...how did losing to OAKLAND feel? still think you're team is final four bound?

    gotta hand it the "America's Most Wanted" Tennessee Volunteer program though, they've managed to corral 1/2 of the degenerate thugs in college sports to one program! How many of your players have been arrested in the past 2 years?

    Re: Memphis is a shithole of a city

    Never been to Memphis, or Texas, but id love to go just for the experience. Been to Jersey though, and hated it. Not really for the 'guidos' or 'bronzer' or whatever, just for the traffic and overall rushed feel I got from the state. And I didn't really notice any accent from the people I visited, but they all seemed dumbfounded by the way I talked?? Its not even like im THAT far south, been in southern VA my whole life.

    Nashville >>>>>>>>>>>> Memphis

    Graceland was pretty damn cool though and definitely worth doing.

    Maybe a music festival or something can get me down there for a few days to really get a good feel for it, but it just seemed really run down for almost every part of it that I saw.

    I go two or three times a year. The Cooper-Young neighborhood has fun bars (Railgarten, Young Ave Deli) and good restaurants. Overton Square is a new area we discovered last time. Overton Park is a great spot to run in. There's a really nice trail along and over the Mississippi River. The best cheeseburger I've ever had was at Roxie's Grocery. The Civil Rights Museum was phenomenal.

    There's shitty parts like any big city, but it's definitely a good time.

    As a Memphian...I get it. I love it here. It's not for everyone. We're definitely in the shadow of Nashville but I don't want to be that city. Nashville is pretentious. Memphis is a good small "big city." I feel like a lot of the great qualities to Memphis are not things a lot of tourists will find.

    I had fun in Memphis when I went 18 years ago for a fraternity convention. Beale Street was pretty welcoming to a 20 year old looking to hit up the bars. Granted my stay was limited to staying at The Peabody and visiting our national headquarters, but I had a good time while I was there.

    So much this.

    Seeing Dr. King's journey and the incredible work he did and the exact spot where he was murdered was so moving. A few months before visiting the museum I had started reading some of his works and he quickly became one of my heroes. His notion for brotherhood and acceptance among all people was extraordinary. That definitely made me appreciate the museum more but it's insanely moving if you don't know much about him.

    Re: Memphis is a shithole of a city

    I thought we'd in there for an hour, maybe hour and a half. I think we spent 3+ hours in there. We were there in Sept '17 and it was heartbreaking to see that not much has changed for certain groups in our country in 50+ years. The sit-ins of the 60s are now the kneeling during the National Anthem. Just sad.

    A lot of the areas just feel like gentrified hipster zones. I really don't have any proof of it aside from every time I visit (about once a month) so much of the area just feels like people are trying way too hard to be boujee and granola.
