Top ranked Tigers get Presidential recognition

The top ranked Memphis Tigers got Presidentail recognition following the State of the Union address Monday night.

After the State of the Union address Monday night, President George Bush signed Congressman Steve Cohen's Tigers hat.

"I gave it to the president to sign, he signed it here as soon as he saw it he said they have a good team.  I said we sure do. And we talked a little bit about the team and how deep they are and how fast they are. I told him we play Houston Wednesday night and he gave me a look like 'Houston?.' I said well they can shoot threes and they can give us a game. He said 'nah'," Cohen said.

Congressman Cohen says he plans to give the hat to Coach John Calipari to put in the Tiger Hall of Fame.
