And no, the tiger is not in the middle of a pelvic thrust. He is simply swinging a sledge hammer. The fact that both universities and the printing company signed off on this blows my mind. But it makes the shirt even funnier. However, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Ole Miss saw the proof of this shirt, understood the meaning, and went "Seriously, Memphis? ...

If I'm Ole Miss and realize the embarrassment and costliness of such an oversight, I absolutely sign off on the shirt and sit back as Memphis has to destroy thousands of dollars in inventory and quell a PR storm. The game is still 5 days away but... Ole Miss - 1, Memphis - 0.

No word yet if the University had plans to distribute Aloa Chino's Bust-a-Nut Performance Energy Bars as promotional items before the game.
