TnPEFL Semi-Final Game 2


Recommended Posts

I have already completed 3 quarters of this game between the Knoxville Bears and the Memphis Southmen. Anyone Venture to take a guess at the score and make a prediction of the final outcome of this game? I will only say this: the Southmen are struggling to win this game and keep their undeafted season going. 

Time for some trivia - If you haven't noticed the mascots for both these teams are  "bears".

Knoxville,TN the largest city in the region of East Tennessee, sits at the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains. This area is home to a large population of black bears. 

Memphis, TN is the largest city in the region of West Tennessee and a major port city along the route of the Mississipi River. The mascot of the Southmen is the Amercian Grizzly Bear. The Southmen are sometimes called the "Grizzlies". One of the original franchises of the 1974-75 World Football League (WFL) they were originally slated to play in Canada as the Toronto Northmen, and featured a Polar Bear as their mascot, but due to legislation introduced, but not passed, by the Canadian parliment in 1974 banning American Football franchises from playing in Canada, the Northmen moved south to become the Southmen.  

The TnPEFL is largely modeled after the Southern Football League of 1965. which also featured 6 teams aligned into 2 divisions - the Blue Division and the Grey Division. The original Knoxville Bears were assigned to the Blue Division and the origianl Chattanooga Cherokees were assigned to the Grey Divsion just as they are in this present day re-creation of that historical league.
