2. Jones Grows Into Legislative Career -

Some people are born into politics; others grow into a political career. For Tennessee Rep. Sherry Jones, it was a little bit of both.

3. AutoZone Park Field to Get Makeover at Season’s End -

This season the Memphis Redbirds are celebrating their 15th year playing at AutoZone Park and the stadium at Third and Union is still a head-turner, even after all these years.

But the playing surface is also celebrating its 15th season and hasn’t been a beauty for a while now.

With less than eight minutes left in a game his team was clearly going to lose, No. 7 came onto the court to audible cheers and applause.

Welcome back, Adonis Thomas, Philadelphia 76er (at least for now).

At grantland.com, the writer said the St. Louis Cardinals have even more depth than last year’s team, but then he went on to pick the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the World Series.

6. Taveras Aims to Prove Himself at Top -

Before every Memphis Redbirds season, there is picture day. On Monday, March 31, the Redbirds held an open workout at AutoZone Park, but first, players lined up like school kids in the first-base dugout to don a Redbirds jersey and cap and get their pictures taken.

7. Toast Cafe Chain Seeks Memphis Expansion -

A breakfast-focused restaurant chain called Toast Cafe, described by its CEO as the “antithesis of a greasy spoon,” is looking to expand into Memphis by opening as many as five stores over the next two to three years.

Now that we’ve all had a few days to digest the premature end to the Tigers’ season, let’s see what we can learn that might help going forward.

Two days after Memphis again lost in the round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament, coach Josh Pastner struck a different tone when answering questions from the media.

9. Crunch Time -

The regular season is down to 12 games and the Grizzlies are a season-high 14 games over .500 at 42-28. They have a 10-game home winning streak.

As forward Zach Randolph said, “This is the best time to be peaking.”

10. Tigers Don't Feel Like 'Cinderella' vs. 1 Seed Virginia -

RALEIGH, N.C. – The pressure valve that at times seems to control life for the Memphis Tigers had opened in the form of a 71-66 victory over George Washington in the NCAA Tournament’s round of 64.

11. Rested Grizz Prep for Playoff Push -

Historians, not to mention members of the 1985-86 Boston Celtics bench, will note that in the Grizzlies’ recent victory over the Utah Jazz the Memphis bench shot 42.9 percent: significant because it ended a stretch of 14 straight games of the bench shooting 50 percent or better, the longest such streak in the NBA since those Celtics did so in 15 consecutive games.

12. Health Law Concerns for Cancer Centers -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Cancer patients relieved that they can get insurance coverage because of the new health care law may be disappointed to learn that some the nation's best cancer hospitals are off-limits.

David Rudd began with the obvious this week, as the four finalists to become the next president of the University of Memphis began individual sessions with faculty, students and staff at the city’s largest institution of higher education.

15. Grizz Need Strong Finish for Playoff Chance -

Twenty games to go and, at this point, even a 13-7 finish might not be good enough to ensure the Grizzlies make the Western Conference Playoffs.

That, for the record, is how they closed the season a year ago. But this time, despite a 36-26 record going into the Tuesday, March 11, game against Portland at FedExForum, the Grizzlies still sit in ninth place.

16. Pets Get the Hollywood Treatment at Growing Chain -

Shawn McGhee grew up on a farm in Southern California with sheep and cattle and “a dozen dogs, a dozen cats, running loose.”

Two hours before the Grizzlies played the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at FedExForum, Memphis coach Dave Joerger talked about the last loss – at Charlotte – the game ahead, and that aggravating play that recently invaded Memphis living rooms, including Joerger’s own.

19. Governors Erupt in Partisan Dispute at White House -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The nation's governors emerged from a meeting with President Barack Obama on Monday claiming harmony, only to immediately break into an on-camera partisan feud in front of the West Wing.

20. ‘Shredder’ Without Cheese -

If you’ve been watching the Olympics, you may have seen a snowboarder injure his ankle, finish that run and then do another, despite having what he later described as a “shredded” ankle. A lot of people think that’s heroic. I agree that it showed courage and determination.

21. Innovation for the Rest of Us -

Innovation, as a discipline, tends to be special assignment work that is reserved for the creative hotshots, iconoclasts, those in hot spots like Palo Alto, or on an esteemed university campus, such as MIT.

22. For Love of the Game, Indeed -

“I’ve never been humbled by anything like baseball. And I’ve been humbled more coaching than playing.”  – Jonathan Lyons, former college and minor-league pitcher and now a coach of a 12-and-under competitive team

23. Hobbled Grizzlies Won’t Go Down Without Fight -

Two years ago, Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph returned from a torn MCL in his right knee and essentially finished out the season on one leg.

In other words, Randolph walked – or hobbled – in the high tops that center Marc Gasol now wears as he plays with a brace on his left knee after returning to the court following an MCL sprain that kept him out of 23 games.

24. Reedy Thriving As Housing Investments Skyrocket -

Jim Reedy began selling real estate in 1976 while he was a student at the University of Memphis, and within three years, he moved into selling investment properties.

25. Heck No, Pastner Won’t Allow Cursing -

Tigers coach Josh Pastner has suspended freshman Dominic Woodson from the team for cursing.

That’s right, cursing. Not shoving a fan. Not signing autographs for money. Not getting in a bar fight.

26. Grizz Look at Final 30 With Hope for Strong Finish -

As the Grizzlies took their leave from FedExForum, having won their last home game before the NBA All-Star break, forward James Johnson looked toward the next night’s game at Orlando. He made clear that the Grizzlies were not thinking of Disney World or any other fantasyland, but were committed to the work immediately in front of them.

27. Tigers Sign 12 Defensive Players -

The Seattle Seahawks proved that the old maxim that “defense wins championships” can still apply in the modern-day NFL.

But for the University of Memphis, which will start its second season in the American Athletic Conference, defense is more basic than that: It’s what kept the Tigers in games last season, and with a lot of seniors on that team, coach Justin Fuente needed to restock.

28. Race to Enroll Young and Healthy for New Insurance -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Facing a rapidly approaching deadline, the White House and its allies are racing to enroll young people in new insurance plans offered under President Barack Obama's signature health care law, a sweeping effort that underscores how crucial the so-called "young invincibles" are to the measure's success.

29. Former Redbird Ready for MLB Spring Training -

If a double play is a pitcher’s best friend, then as a rookie with the St. Louis Cardinals last season Seth Maness was all about making new friends.

Maness led all National League relievers with 16 induced double-play groundballs. He became manager Mike Matheny’s go-to-guy for getting the Cardinals free from less-than-two-out jams before the ninth inning.

30. New Horizons -

When The Marston Group PLC, a Memphis-based certified public accounting and financial consulting firm, held an open house in recent weeks at its new digs, the evening portion of the event lasted from 7 till later in the night, with the last person leaving around 10.

31. Playoffs Implications -

The calendar says the Dallas Mavericks will be at FedExForum to play the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, Feb. 5. Just one game of 82 in the coast-to-coast marathon that is the NBA season.

But it’s a game that has the potential to weigh heavily on the Grizzlies’ ultimate playoff fate. The Mavericks come in sitting in the eighth and final playoff position in the Western Conference with a record of 28-21.

32. Sullivan Branding, Running Pony Win Regional Emmys -

Memphis creative groups Running Pony and Sullivan Branding have won regional Emmy awards for work they produced for the University of Memphis Tigers football team.

The two companies shared an Emmy in the Commercial Campaign category for their “Watercooler Guys” ads that sparked a local catchphrase: “Mind your business, Dennis!”

33. Sullivan Branding, Running Pony Win Regional Emmys -

Memphis creative groups Running Pony and Sullivan Branding have won regional Emmy awards for work they produced for the University of Memphis Tigers football team.

The two companies shared an Emmy in the Commercial Campaign category for their “Watercooler Guys” ads that sparked a local catchphrase: “Mind your business, Dennis!”

34. Memphis Finally Finding Touch From Deep -

When the Memphis Tigers missed 15 of 17 threes against Southeast Missouri State, the players and coach Josh Pastner said not to worry. And they had a 77-65 victory in that game to back them up.

But two weeks later, they again went 2-for-17 from long range at FedExForum against Cincinnati (11.8 percent, for the record) and wound up on the wrong end of a 69-53 score.

35. Grizzlies Making Key Strides -

Last Saturday, Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale was looking back at his team’s 88-87 loss at home to the Grizzlies the previous night.

The teams were about to play again at FedExForum, a quirk in the schedule that essentially created a 24-hour two-game series.

36. Grizzlies Fighting Odds to Make Playoffs -

It was only fitting that for the Grizzlies to finally crawl back over .500 at 20-19 on Jan. 17, they had to rally from a seven-point deficit in the last 4:01 of the fourth quarter at FedExForum to beat the Sacramento Kings 91-90.

37. Home Court Not So Sweet for Tigers -

The impossibility of an undefeated season in the American Athletic Conference was assured a couple of weeks ago with a loss to Cincinnati at FedExForum. But the Tigers’ 83-73 loss to Connecticut here on Thursday, Jan. 16, was historic.

38. Grizzlies’ Gutsy Comeback Falls Short -

Fans had reason to cheer when the Grizzlies’ overtime game with the San Antonio Spurs ended Tuesday, Jan. 7, at FedExForum.

The home team had rallied from a 16-point deficit with 5:25 to play, and made up a 12-point gap in the last 1:59 of regulation. During a wild 14-2 run in those last two minutes, point guard Mike Conley scored nine of his season-high 30 points.

39. ‘Hungry’ Johnson Making Most of Latest NBA Chance -

You can’t really call this forward James Johnson’s second chance because the Memphis Grizzlies are his fifth NBA team, if you count his four preseason games with the Atlanta Hawks before being released last October.

40. Wheel Could Bring Fortune to NBA Draft -

This June’s NBA Draft is projected to be deep, with perhaps as many as a half-dozen players capable of changing a franchise’s fortunes. It’s a great incentive for “tanking” and trying to get into the top tier of the NBA Lottery.

41. Childhood Inspiration Leads Jambor to Fulfilling Career -

Like many children of the 1970s, Erik Jambor’s interest in film began with scrolling words on the big screen: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away … .”

For Jambor, it wasn’t so far away in Birmingham, Ala., where he nurtured a passion for film with a Super 8 video camera in his backyard.

42. College Football Season Brought Many Surprises -

It seems like just yesterday that temperatures were stifling and everyone who really mattered in the college football world – the SEC’s coaches and top players – had met in Hoover, Ala., for that little party known as SEC Media Days.

43. Slow Job Growth Yields Dip in New-Home Permits -

Shelby County homebuilding activity continued to cool off in November, with builders filing fewer permits and selling fewer new homes compared to the same month a year ago.

Homebuilders pulled 58 permits in November, down 23.6 percent from 76 permits filed in November 2012, according to real estate information company Chandler Reports, www.chandlerreports.com.

44. Pondexter’s Injury Latest Setback for Grizzlies -

Quincy Pondexter met with the media before the Monday, Dec. 9, game against the Orlando Magic at FedExForum. In a hallway outside the Grizzlies’ locker room, using crutches to move in front of cameras and tape recorders. This is how it goes these days.

45. Shooting Woes, Injuries Piling Up for Grizzlies -

Even open shots, depending on who is taking them, are not necessarily a good option. So says coach Dave Joerger and, yes, that’s how bad the Grizzlies’ offense has become.

The Grizzlies mustered just 82 points in a 26-point loss to Golden State on Saturday, Dec. 7 at FedExForum, and it was most notable for the fact that, well, such losses are no longer notable.

46. Tiny Bag to Big Box -

ONE SCREW. ONE CENT. ONCE UPON A TIME.

Saturday at 491 South Highland.

That meant, if you couldn’t get out the door and out of earshot fast enough, you’d be working for Dad. “I need a #2 this or that,” he’d say – staring at the repurposed wooden Philadelphia Cream Cheese box in his hand that no longer held cream cheese and, evidently, not a single #2 this or that either – “Run down to the hardware store.”

47. Grizz Bigs Taking Advantage of Opportunity -

Not so long ago, forward Ed Davis entering a Grizzlies game cued a barrage of negative tweets and even a few scattered boos.

Some were directed at Davis for what, at the time, had been a portfolio of poor play. Some were directed at Grizzlies management because, as the popular narrative went, they were desperate for Davis to play and play well because he was considered the biggest piece of the Rudy Gay trade.

48. RV Industry Shows More Signs of Recovery -

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – RV manufacturers expect to pass another milestone in their steady recovery from the recession that landed the industry in a deep ditch.

Led by sales growth for towable RVs and pricier stand-alone motor homes, recreational vehicle makers expect to ship more than 300,000 units to dealers' lots this year for the first time since the economic downturn battered the industry in 2008 and 2009.

49. Memphis Designer Puts Personal Touch on Denim Line -

If you’re wondering where Memphis fashion designer Derrick Gooden gets his talent, you could say it’s in his jeans.

50. If Government Backs In-Flight Calls, Will the Airlines? -

NEW YORK (AP) – The Federal Communications Commission might be ready to permit cellphone calls in flight. But what about the airlines?

Old concerns about electronics being a danger to airplane navigation have been debunked. And airlines could make some extra cash charging passengers to call a loved one from 35,000 feet. But that extra money might not be worth the backlash from fliers who view overly chatty neighbors as another inconvenience to go along with smaller seats and stuffed overhead bins.

51. Grizz Make Adjustments Without Center Gasol -

In the immediate aftermath of All-Star center Marc Gasol’s knee injury, frontcourt mate Zach Randolph had a simple plan.

“Man, praying, praying,” Randolph said after Gasol limped off the FedExForum court during the Friday, Nov. 22, game won by the San Antonio Spurs. “Need him.”

52. College Football Notebook: November 22, 2013 -

For the East Division-leading Missouri Tigers (9-1, 5-1), the last road test of the SEC season comes this Saturday in Oxford against No. 24 Ole Miss (7-3, 3-3), which is on a four-game winning streak. The No. 8 Tigers need to win out to ensure a trip to Atlanta for the SEC championship game. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel is trying to push even the idea of pressure to the fringes.

53. Family Roots Keep Lipscomb & Pitts on Path -

Lipscomb & Pitts was founded on Oct. 1, 1954, by Mathew Lipscomb Jr. and John Pitts, both veterans of World War II who had come home to become the top two sales leaders in the southeast for Liberty Mutual Insurance Co.

54. Looking for Last Season’s Grizz to Make Appearance … Now -

The Grizzlies are going out on a four-game road trip that starts with a Friday, Nov. 15, game in Los Angeles against the Lakers. Maybe a change of scenery will do them good. After a 3-5 start to the season that feels even worse than the record, a change of scenery is as good an idea as any.

55. Olymbec Acquires 13-Building Bellbrook -

Olymbec USA LLC has snatched up two more key Memphis properties, including the 1.8 million-square-foot Bellbrook industrial park.

56. Millington School Board Meets Public -

A group of 100 citizens in Millington Tuesday, Nov. 12, had a lot of questions and angst about the coming of a Millington municipal school system.

The town hall meeting was the first gathering of the seven Millington school board members elected Nov. 7. They won’t take office until next month, so a lot of the questions at the Millington Civic Center Tuesday evening from a room that was mostly teachers and other educators were about decisions the board hasn’t started making yet.

57. Rudy Gay Makes Memphis Return -

The Toronto Raptors had just finished practice on the main court at FedExForum. Rudy Gay, long-time Grizzly and current Raptor (for now), sat in a folding chair courtside with a bag of ice on each knee. It was Tuesday afternoon, and less than 24 hours after a two-overtime loss at Houston in which Gay had played 49 minutes, put up 37 shots (making 11) and scored 29 points with 10 rebounds.

58. Tigers Find Different Rhythm This Season -

A year ago in this exhibition matchup, the University of Memphis trailed at the half and beat Christian Brothers University by 11 points.

But Friday night, Nov. 8, at FedExForum, the Tigers defeated CBU 92-63 and nobody had to play more than 22 minutes as Memphis coach Josh Pastner mixed and matched his lineups throughout the game.

59. Few Options for Obama to Fix Cancellations Problem -

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama says he'll do everything he can to help people coping with health insurance cancellations, but legally and practically his options appear limited.

60. Mechatronics -

“Mechatronics.” Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said the word so fast that it got lost in the echo of the large aircraft hangar at the Tennessee College of Applied Technology near Memphis International Airport.

61. Pronoun Showdown, Round 3 -

The Pronoun Showdown continues. I started it some weeks back, asking which of two football coaches was correct, the one who said “between me and him” or the one who said: “between he and I?”

62. Tencarva Looking to Expand Memphis Presence -

The story of how industrial distributor Tencarva Machinery Co. got its start has all the makings of a great motivational business speech – or a tale told in the iconic style of Sophia Petrillo from “The Golden Girls.”

63. Fuente Keenly Aware of Job’s Ups, Downs -

It was a postmortem that sounded like a lot of other postmortems from Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

“Our guys battled their tails off,” University of Memphis coach Justin Fuente said after his team lost, 34-21, to Cincinnati on Wednesday, Oct. 30. “Again, our margin for error is not very big.”

64. Troubling Trends Emerge as Grizz Begin Season -

First-year coach Dave Joerger had two goals heading into the Grizzlies’ eighth and final preseason game: “Don’t get anybody hurt, get better.”

The Grizzlies came through their 92-73 loss to the Houston Rockets at FedExForum Friday, Oct. 25, without injury. But they did not get better. Rather, they followed up their dreadful showing in Toronto two nights earlier – a 108-72 defeat – with a performance that raises many more questions than it answers.

65. CMOM Hosting Superheroes Monster Bash -

The Children’s Museum of Memphis is calling on all superheroes and non-scary Halloween characters to help vanquish the city’s bad guys during this weekend’s Superheroes Monster Bash.

66. ‘Intertwined’ -

In 2007, the Grizzlies were no longer a novelty in Memphis. They also were no longer a playoff team. Rather, they were a punch line lost in the expansive blue and gray shadow of the University of Memphis and a fast-talking operator/coach named John Calipari.

67. Grizz Desperately Seeking Strong Finish to Preseason -

Seven practice tests down, one to go. So far, the results have been mixed as the Grizzlies under first-year coach Dave Joerger at times have looked more dynamic, but also more erratic on offense and less devoted to playing defense.

68. CMOM Hosting Superheroes Monster Bash -

The Children’s Museum of Memphis is calling on all superheroes and non-scary Halloween characters to help vanquish the city’s bad guys during this weekend’s Superheroes Monster Bash.

69. Cardinal Way Has St. Louis Back in Fall Classic -

From 2002-2006, the St. Louis Cardinals had a farm director named Bruce Manno. He was a guy who had his own ideas on how things should be done. One of them was to require that all Cardinal minor-league players – from Rookie ball to Triple-A Memphis – wear their pants pulled up to their knees so their stirrup socks would show.

70. Fullilove’s Funding Push Raises Legal Questioning -

Memphis City Council member Janis Fullilove pushed hard for $1.5 million in city funding for the renovation of Southbrook Mall in Whitehaven.

71. We Have to Talk -

THE CYNICAL TRUTH IS, WE JUST CAN’T TALK ABOUT IT. Cynicism about politicians isn’t new.

“We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office,” Aesop, 2,500 years ago.

72. Miller: Toughness Key to Continued Success -

In a way, it’s almost as though Mike Miller went abroad on a special internship. I mean, really, that’s how big the gap is from playing for the Grizzlies in small-market Memphis to going to South Beach to play a defined role on a Heat team that would win two NBA championships behind LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

73. College Football Notebook: October 18, 2013 -

History. That’s what the latest Associated Press Top 25 college football poll represents after eight SEC teams made the rankings. According to the AP’s Ralph D. Russo, no conference has ever placed that many teams in the regular-season poll.

74. Tigers Desperately Seeking Offense -

It might be obscured by the record – 1-4 overall, 0-2 in the American Athletic Conference – but the University of Memphis football team has a good defense.

Good enough that the Tigers are ranked 11th in the country in total defense, allowing an average of 305.2 yards per game in an era in which many teams seem to run – and pass – their way up and down the field at will.

75. Redbirds Proving Key Role in ‘Cardinal Way’ -

The St. Louis Cardinals had just wrapped up one playoff series and were headed to the National League Championship Series with a roster mainly comprised of homegrown players.

There was rookie pitcher Michael Wacha, who had flirted with no-hitters in the regular season and in the NL Division Series. There was first baseman Matt “Big City” Adams, who stepped into the void created by Allen Craig’s foot injury. And there was 23-year-old Trevor Rosenthal, who was thrust into that all-important closer’s role late in the season.

76. Hogue Goes Distance for ‘Golf’ Contest -

The swing and the sound really haven’t changed that much. The swing is still fast and violent. The sound upon contact is a still a loud “ping!” that signals the ball is about to travel a long, long way.

77. Poll: No Heroes in Shutdown, GOP Gets Most Blame -

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama and lawmakers must rise above their incessant bickering and do more to end the partial government shutdown, according to a poll Wednesday that places the brunt of the blame on Republicans but finds no one standing tall in Washington.

78. Calathes Poised to ‘Surprise’ People in Rookie Season -

If rookie Nick Calathes turns out to be that long-coveted, legitimate back-up point guard for the Grizzlies, then count Mike Conley as the first one to have said, “I told you so.”

79. College Football Notebook -

College football is played from coast to coast in this great land, but it’s still a small world. The proof? When USC fired head coach Lane Kiffin, who had bolted Tennessee for Southern Cal, assistant Ed Orgeron (Ole Miss head coach from 2005 to 2007) became USC’s interim coach.

80. Grizz Hope to Extend Honeymoon Period -

Marc Gasol got married during the offseason so, naturally, he was asked how he was enjoying married life.

“It’s not that different,” Gasol said. “We’re still in the honeymoon phase.”

What’s true for the Grizzlies’ All-Star center is true for the entire organization as the team prepares for its first season after the best season in franchise history.

81. Good Feelings Abound as Grizz Open Camp -

The immediate past features a franchise-best 56-win season, a first-ever trip to the Western Conference Finals and a declaration from ESPN The Magazine that the Memphis Grizzlies are the No. 1 pro sports franchise in North America.

82. Democrats ‘Roast’ Herenton, Look Ahead to 2014 -

Divisions within the local Democratic party took a backseat over the weekend as the Shelby County Democratic Party held the first of two large fundraisers for the 2014 election year.

But the look back for the party came with some advice for the future.

83. Avoid Competitive Blind Spots -

Pop quiz: do you complete a formal competitive analysis at your company a few times a year? Do you have a systematic way to monitor and capture competitive information real-time?

Be honest. It’s too bad we even have to ask this question, but the vast majority of the companies we meet with do not have a formal process nor do they analyze competitors regularly as a matter of course. They make excuses, telling us that their sales guys know exactly what’s going on in the marketplace. They tell us they rely on the “Magic Quadrant” put out by their industry’s presiding research firm. But the truth is they operate on hearsay and gut feelings. This is true for large and small companies alike, all myopically focused on the tasks at hand and the daily fires.

84. Levien: ‘Real Dialogue’ With Fans Crucial -

Last week in The Daily News, we brought you Part 1 of my interview with Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien. He talked about, among other things, ESPN The Magazine naming the franchise as the best in pro sports as just a starting point. He also said the Grizzlies will continue to keep an open mind about further player moves that could help the team.

85. Expectations, Talent Sky-High for Tigers -

Four senior guards. Nine new faces, seven of them belonging to freshmen. A new league, the American Athletic Conference. And a home schedule that will feature games against league foes Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville and Temple, and non-conference opponent Gonzaga.

86. When Siri Speaks -

My smartphone was, of course, in my pocket. Apparently, though, I’d unknowingly pressed the button that activates it. Through my judicial robe and the fabric of my trousers. The lawyer in front of me wound up his remarks. There was a longer-than-normal pause.

87. ‘Wading in’ on Manziel, Carpenter, Tiger Football -

Wading in and wondering why all the attention on Bo Pelini’s hissy fit? Lee Elia could have done better on his worst day … or worse on his best day. Point is, you’re way more entitled to a tirade when managing the Cubs than when coaching Nebraska football ... .

88. SEC Gaining Reputation as QB Factory -

When No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Texas A&M clash in College Station this Saturday, much of the pre-game hype will fall on the starting quarterbacks. Forget, for a moment, the off-the-field stuff with the Aggies’ Johnny Manziel. Just think about on the field, him running around and making plays, him winning the Heisman Trophy last season as a freshman.

89. Education Reform Leaders -

Shelby County Schools superintendent Dorsey Hopson and Achievement School District superintendent Chris Barbic say the education reformation underway locally in Shelby County can lead and influence the national discussion about education reform.

90. Reunion Brings Back Tigers’ Great Unbeaten Team of ’63 -

It’s ironic, really. When they were young and strong they were literally protected by body armor – helmet and pads. When they had all the time in the world, they were always measuring it in 15-minute quarters.

91. Tigers Get Extra Look at Duke -

The Tigers’ game Saturday, Sept. 7, against Duke at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium isn’t just the season’s first for the University of Memphis. It’s also a relevant measuring stick because the fourth game last season was played at Duke and the Tigers were on the short end of a 38-14 score.

92. Mean Streets -

Alabama’s Nick Saban can walk anywhere he wants in the Southeastern Conference – college football’s roughest neighborhood – and no one can lay a finger on him.

His teams have won the national championship in three of the last four years. Overall, SEC teams have won the title seven consecutive years and the league is a dream destination for head coaches – until it turns into a grinding, weekly nightmare.

93. O-Line’s Job: Keeping the Star Players Clean -

Of all the talented yet anonymous offensive linemen in the country, Vanderbilt senior Wesley Johnson might be the closest thing to a 6-5, 295-pound invisible man as there can be. Johnson has made 38 straight starts and was expected to make his 39th on Thursday, Aug. 29, against Ole Miss.

94. Fetch Brings Ikea Delivery to Memphis -

Ikea doesn’t have a store in Memphis, and the retailer doesn’t deliver some products to Memphis – which is why Ben Colar and two other guys created a venture to give fans of the retailer a guaranteed personal delivery service.

95. ‘Process’ Keeps Alabama, Saban on Top -

The best coach in college football admitted that he – and everyone else at Alabama – was proud of the team’s recent accomplishments. You know, two straight national titles and, if you want to deal in ancient history, three in the last four years.

96. Martin’s Program Keeps Girls Engaged in STEM Fields -

Girls Inc. is a national nonprofit providing girls ages 6-18 with after-school and summer programs, field trips and college tours.

97. Group Kicks Off National Tour on Health Law Defunding -

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) – One of the chief backers of a plan to defund the federal health care law by tying it to budget negotiations said Monday that he didn't believe Republicans would be blamed for a government shutdown as supporters of the approach launched a national tour to spur support for the idea.

98. Colliers Continues Role as Major Commercial Real Estate Player -

Wilkinson & Snowden Inc. helped lead the industrial warehouse revolution in Memphis at a prescient time.
