Looks like more dominos may be falling soon.

The University of Memphis may be close to joining the Big East Conference.
CBSSports.com reporter Brett McMurphy tweeted shortly after noon today that the Tigers and the Big East are in “final negotiations” (http://https//twitter.com/#!/McMurphyCBS/status/166949585951010816) to make the U of M an all-sports member of the league in 2013. He wrote that an announcement could come this week.

The only reason to stop in Memphis. We ate at Leonards on the way back from the Arkansas game and at Leonards and Rendezvous going to and from the Arkansas St game.

That's about all I can come up with. Their basketball has been decent in the past, but John Calipari isn't there anymore.

Basketball pays the bills at Memphis, just like it does at Louisville and Duke.
