22. Titans Should Follow Lions’ Lead in Overhauling Roster -

Instead of CBS, Fox or even the NFL Network, the Titans might need to move to the HGTV, where experts take once-proud houses and restore them to their former grandeur.

Now losers of six in a row and 10 of their past 11 – with only a two-point home win against fellow patsy Jacksonville – the Titans are no longer treading the waters of mediocrity, as they had for the previous five years.

23. This week in Memphis history: December 5-11 -

36. After the Campaign -

The 2014 election year began in January with dissent from the floor.

Ten years ago this month, as I was immersing myself into the nuances of cruciverbalism – the art of writing crosswords – these lines came to me:

47. New Look -

A new season brings optimism – or marketing, if you want to be cynical about it – but also some reflective truth-telling.

Go back to this time last year for the University of Memphis basketball team. They were going to be really good, or maybe even great, because of the four senior guards. Those guards – Joe Jackson, Chris Crawford, Geron Johnson and Michael Dixon – were going to be leaders, defensive dynamos and 3-point sharpshooters.

48. Bowl-Eligible Tigers Look for More This Season -

It was just another score on the bottom-of-the-TV-screen scrawl: Memphis 16, Temple 13.

For most of the country, that’s all it was. If it came with any history, it was only the immediate history of Jake Elliott kicking the game-winning field goal. Or of the Tigers getting their sixth win, which knowledgeable college football fans understand is the magic number: six wins equals a bowl game.

62. With Dobbs at QB, Vols Look Set for Bowl Season -

As the jubilation settled this week, the University of Tennessee’s football team and its fans still savored last Saturday’s 45-42 overtime victory at South Carolina.

63. Survival of the Fittest -

Back in 2010, as the video rental giant Blockbuster was circling the drain in the wake of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, the irony was inescapable to Matt Martin.

76. Gordon Creates ‘Happy Place’ With Muddy’s Grind House -

Ever since she opened her East Memphis bakery in 2008, Muddy’s Bake Shop founder and owner Kat Gordon has been repeatedly asked to expand.

Calling it the Wild West just doesn't do it justice anymore.
