Two years to the month after he conceded defeat in his first political outing, Mickell Lowery is returning to the local political arena – albeit a different part of the arena.

This may be the most covered meeting of the Tennessee Historical Commission ever – the meeting Friday in Athens, Tennessee where Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland will attempt to make the case for the commission granting him permission to remove the statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest in Health Sciences Park. The chairman of the commission has already told Strickland in writing that the commission will not take up the matter – not even discuss it. Strickland hopes he will at least be heard. And he says the city should have a decision by mid-November and is adamant that this cannot be put off into the new year.

10. Last Word: The Chamber on Forrest, Different Amazon News & More 2018 Dominoes -

The Greater Memphis Chamber rolls out its part of the push by the city administration to get a state waiver for the removal of the Nathan Bedford Forrest statue.

• A 41-0 no-show at home against Georgia

• A combined 3-11 record against rivals Alabama, Florida and Georgia

12. A Positive First Step For Grizzlies’ Mario Chalmers -

Veteran point guard Mario Chalmers is on a partially guaranteed contract and that means what it sounds like it means. The Grizzlies wanted to give Chalmers, 31, a long look, but coming off surgery for an Achilles injury they didn’t believe it was automatic he would be ready to serve as Mike Conley’s backup as he did two seasons ago.

13. Retired FedEx Exec Rodriguez Becomes City of Memphis CIO -

Mike Rodriguez recently became the city of Memphis’ director of information services and chief information officer, a role he took on after retiring from a 27-year career at FedEx Corp. Rodriguez, who most recently served as FedEx’s director of information security, was nominated as city CIO by Mayor Jim Strickland and confirmed by the Memphis City Council Sept. 23.

14. For Fizdale, Conley, Speaking Out Is Part of The Job Now -

This conversation? No, they didn’t imagine it. Grizzlies coach David Fizdale and point guard Mike Conley did not enter the NBA thinking they would someday be talking about national protests, a president that shoots from the lip, or Confederate statues in Memphis.

15. Last Word: HOT, Post Secondary Meets High School and Downtown Home Prices -

Even a power outage Downtown didn’t stop the Bruno Mars show at FedExForum Sunday that capped an eventful and HOT weekend around the city. The forum was not affected by the outage.

After a disappointing turnout last year, the 2017 Memphis Comic Expo nearly didn’t happen. But last year, a little before Christmas, Donald Juengling’s father passed away. Richard Juengling had been a big fan of his son’s efforts to stage a creator-oriented comic convention in Memphis.

Tennessee starts its fifth season of the Butch Jones coaching era on Monday night against Georgia Tech at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Kickoff is 8 p.m. (TV: ESPN).

19. Vols at Their Best When Expectations Are Low -

Based on preseason predictions, the SEC East is pretty much a toss-up between Georgia and Florida.

My question: Why not Tennessee?

Granted, the Vols must identify a quarterback. And establish a featured running back. And find more than one playmaker at wide receiver. And fix a defense that was embarrassingly porous late last season.

20. By the End of This Season for Vols, 9-4 Might Not Look so Bad -

Tennessee fans would have loved a nine-win season under Derek Dooley. They were giddy at preseason talk about a resurgent program and a widespread belief the Vols were the favorites to win the SEC East Division title last year.

21. Remember Memphis? Titans Would Rather Not -

Time flies, doesn’t it? A lot can happen in 20 years. Think about it: In 1997, Bill Clinton was sworn in for his second term as president. Princess Di was killed in a car crash. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 8,000 for the first time. And the Tennessee Oilers played their home games in Memphis.

22. Vols Roster Gets Little Respect from SEC Media -

It was no surprise last week when Tennessee’s football team was picked to finish third by the media in the East Division at 2017 SEC Media Days.

Almost every national publication is picking the Vols third in the East behind Georgia and Florida, although not necessarily in that order.

23. Alabama is Media’s Overwhelming Pick To Win SEC Title -

Twice in the previous three years, SEC media correctly predicted the SEC champion. Both times, they did it by picking Alabama (2014, 2016). They went with Alabama again this year, predicting the Crimson Tide to defeat Georgia in the SEC title game.

24. Sports Notebook: Grizz Moves Bring Tyreke Evans Back to Memphis -

The Memphis Grizzlies continued changing their roster for the upcoming season by agreeing to a one-year contract with free agent guard Tyreke Evans.

What does Phillip Fulmer’s hiring as special adviser to University of Tennessee president Joe DiPietro have to do with Vols football coach Butch Jones?

26. Last Word: After the Last Hole, Cutting County Property Taxes and A Recycled Gown -

The story of how the Overton Park Conservancy raised $1 million in two months didn’t go according to the script. It wasn’t large donors, it was a lot of contributions of $250 or less it turns out, many from people who have never been to the park, the zoo or the greensward in particular whether it’s on foot or in a car. There were donations from Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and every state, except South Dakota.

27. Not a Very Good Year for UT Athletics -

It hasn’t been the greatest of years for Tennessee sports. From football to basketball to baseball, and several sports in between, the Vols – for the most part – fell short in 2016-17.

31. If Saban’s the Best, Why Aren’t His Protégés? -

In a recent article at CBSSports.com, Nick Saban was ranked the top coach in the so-called Power Five conferences.

No surprise there.

With all due respect to what Urban Meyer has accomplished at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and now Ohio State, he’s still playing catch-up to Saban. The same can be said for Dabo Swinney and his recent run at Clemson.

32. How Did Vols Not Win More With This Talent? -

One check of the 2017 NFL Draft shows why Tennessee was the favorite to win the SEC East Division last fall.

UT had six players drafted in the first four rounds, the most for the program since 2002, breaking a two-year drought with no players. The six Vols drafted tied for the most since 2010 and 2007. Eight Vols were drafted in 2003 and 10 drafted in 2002.

33. Mayors and Planners Challenge Assumptions at RegionSmart -

At the end of last week’s day-long RegionSmart Summit Downtown, Tipton County Executive Jeff Huffman remarked on how roomy and comfortable the chairs at the Halloran Centre had been for the mayors, planners, developers and others who gathered for the Urban Land Institute event.

34. Spring Lessons: Here’s Who Vols Will Start -

Tennessee football coach Butch Jones isn’t big on naming starters and divulging depth charts. Not until he has to. So it comes as no surprise the Vols enter summer workouts and fall camp with junior Quinten Dormady and redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano still competing for the starting quarterback’s job.

35. No Time to Rest: NBA Has a Problem -

We know from Genesis 2:2 that on the seventh day God finished his creation and rested. So everybody needs rest.

Of course, there is no mention of changing time zones in that passage. Nor anything about the challenge of creating on the second night of a back-to-back.

36. County Commission Won’t Appoint Lovell Replacement -

Shelby County commissioners will not appoint someone to the open state House District 95 seat in advance of the June 15 special election for the seat.

39. Vols Need a Good Spring With So Many No. 1 Players Gone -

Butch Jones is about to embark on his most crucial of five seasons as Tennessee’s football coach, and it begins with spring practices starting Tuesday, March 21.

Jones is coming off back-to-back 9-4 seasons capped by bowl wins, but has fallen short of the SEC East Division title both years. He was the preseason favorite to win the East in 2016, and the previous year had a team with potential to win the division.

40. Football Staff Shakeups Rarely Save Coaching Jobs, History Has Shown -

Phillip Fulmer was notorious during his glory years as Tennessee’s football coach for maintaining staff stability.

Some of his assistant coaches were mediocre recruiters. So, what? Fulmer figured he could take up the slack. It was more important to him that the staff have year-to-year continuity.

41. What a Strange Twist of Events in Hiring of Currie -

John Currie is the new athletics director at the University of Tennessee. Has it sunk in yet? Currie, previously the athletic director at Kansas State, was introduced last week by new UT chancellor Beverly Davenport during a ceremony featuring fans, boosters, coaches and, of course, former Tennessee and NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.

42. New AD Bad News for Struggling Vol Coaches -

The hiring of John Currie as the University of Tennessee’s athletics director conveys a number of messages. One of them: Butch Jones is officially on the clock.

Based on Currie’s history at UT, as well as his eight-year track record as Kansas State’s athletics director, it’s safe to say he isn’t afraid to pull the trigger when it comes to coaches – for better or worse.

43. New Vols AD Currie Says His Tennessee Experience Should Help -

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – New Tennessee athletic director John Currie has some shopping to do.

It’s the busiest time of the year for Tennessee athletics. There’s even some football to whet your gridiron appetite.

46. Dobbs Makes His Stand to Join NFL Roster -

Josh Dobbs has spent the last four years preparing for a future in aerospace engineering. For now, though, that career is still on the runway. First, he’s hoping to take flight in the NFL. After establishing himself as one of the most productive quarterbacks in University of Tennessee history, Dobbs isn’t ready to give up on football. It remains to be seen if football is ready to give up on him.

47. Scott the Recruiter Must Now Be Scott the Offensive Coordinator -

When it comes to offense, Butch Jones thinks he knows what’s best for the Tennessee Vols.

And he’s willing to bet his job on it.

By elevating Larry Scott from tight ends coach/special teams coordinator to offensive coordinator, Jones is staying the course. And it’s his own course.

48. Hart’s Tenure as AD Has Been Mostly Good for Vols -

While we wait – and wait and wait and wait – for the University of Tennessee to hire its next athletics director, let’s ponder the man who soon will walk out the door.

Dave Hart is leaving the UT athletics department better than he found it. He got things back on solid financial footing. He brought a measure of stability.

49. What are the Odds? Blackburn is Still the Favorite -

Tennessee has its search firm and its search committee is in place to find the replacement for Dave Hart as the university’s athletic director.

Hart announced last August he would retire June 30, and with Tennessee undergoing a transition in its chancellor’s position, the search for Hart’s replacement was put on the back burner.

50. NBA Writer Sees Gasol, Conley as All-Stars -

57. Strunk has Provided Long-Missing Ownership Stability -

Since becoming controlling owner of the Titans in March 2015, it has become customary for Amy Adams Strunk to spend a half-hour or so on the sideline visiting with coaches and players prior to games.

58. Titaned Up: Success Found In Big Moves, Smallest Details -

Most critics of last year’s Tennessee Titans saw unsettled ownership, a revolving door of coaches and a lack of talent at key positions.

Jon Robinson saw weeds.

59. New Year, New Resolutions for Legislators -

Some Tennesseans recall the days when the state Legislature met every other year and wonder if it should revert to that schedule. Considering the General Assembly pushes most of its work into 3 1/2 months, it might be worth a try.

60. The Alamo? No, Vols Rally Around Loss to Vandy -

Tennessee’s football team can’t afford to get too merry when it goes into Christmas break this weekend. Not with the way it finished the 2016 regular season, and not with a chance for some redemption.

61. Dobbs’ Change of Heart a Great Gift to Vol Fans -

In the spirit of the holiday season, Joshua Dobbs is the gift that keeps on giving. Despite all the disappointments of 2016 for Tennessee football, it would be a mistake not to appreciate Dobbs for what he is: a scholar, an athlete, a leader, a role model and a winner.

62. Last Word: Epping Way, Conley's Return and 'Ascend' -

What is the encore after a year that has included the opening of Big River Crossing, the eastward expansion of the Shelby Farms Greenline across Germantown Parkway to the old town part of Cordova and the opening of Shelby Farms Park’s Heart of the Park renovation? Two words: Epping Way.

63. Memphis Football Bigger Than One Coach Or QB -

As we count down to the University of Memphis playing in the Tuesday, Dec. 20, Boca Raton Bowl, I find myself recalling what athletics director Tom Bowen said when pressed about why Arizona State offensive coordinator Mike Norvell was the Tigers’ choice for head coach.

64. Last Word: St. Jude Dollar Amounts, Fred's On The Move and The Treble Clef -

Grizz over the Trailblazers 88 – 86 Thursday evening at the Forum. At the end of the first half, Grizz coach David Fizdale had to be restrained by players on the way off the court after a technical was called on him. And welcome to Memphis, Toney Douglas. We love what you are doing with the fourth quarter.

65. I Was Wrong. Mularkey is the Right Coach for Titans -

In light of the Tennessee Titans’ 6-6 record and continuing relevance in the NFL playoff picture, I offer those three little words that are so hard to say:

66. Last Word: Fire Recovery, Justice Department Work Begins and Rocky Top Angst -

The death toll in the East Tennessee wildfires goes to 10 Thursday as the recovery effort moves beyond a search for those missing. The count of buildings burned in Sevier County is estimated at more than 700 – 300 just in Gatlinburg. And 47 people are injured by the latest count. The count of those who died in the fires includes confirmation that Jon and Janet Summer of Memphis are among the dead recovered so far.

67. SEC Grades: ‘A’ for Alabama; UT, Ole Miss Should Be Grounded -

Even as the Ole Miss football program was reeling from an NCAA investigation that gained momentum on the night of the NFL Draft when a former player said he received money from a staff member, optimism about the season ahead was still high.

68. Fuente Succeeding at Va. Tech, Norvell Keeping it Rolling at Memphis -

With a thrilling 48-44 victory over then-No. 20 Houston the day after Thanksgiving, Mike Norvell became the only first-year University of Memphis coach to win eight games.

Interestingly, his eighth victory came as Tom Herman coached his last game at Houston. Herman is the new coach at Texas, succeeding Charlie Strong. The coaching ladder in the American Athletic Conference can definitely reach into the Power Five.

69. Six-Point Plan to Help Vols Coach Stick Around Longer -

On that day in December 2012 when Butch Jones was introduced as Tennessee’s head football coach, he told Vol Nation that he had a template for fixing everything.

He said: “The plan is infallible if the players buy in.”

73. Brick by Brick, UT’s Season Falling From Rocky Top -

When Butch Jones arrived at Tennessee, he adopted a “brick-by-brick” mantra for describing the building of the Vols program. And the bricks did appear to be getting stacked higher: five wins in 2013, seven wins the next year, and nine last season.

74. Vols Get Midterm B Despite Back-to-Back Losses -

77. What’s Worse Than Dating A Gator? Another Loss -

If you’re a Tennessee fan hurting from the 11-game losing streak against Florida, put yourself in Corey Vereen’s shoes.

UT’s senior defensive end is from Winter Garden, Florida, and he’s 0-for-3 against his buddies back home. That’s not the worst part for Vereen.

78. 8-8 Mediocrity Sounds Good to Titans Fans -

On an August morning in 1999, the Tennessee Titans coaching staff and front office personnel awoke to this headline in the local newspaper:

Playoffs or Pink Slips.

It got their attention. Things were quite tense before, during and after practice on that particular day.

The Tennessee Republican Party’s executive committee has named its 11 electors for the November presidential general election. They were chosen by party leaders Thursday, Aug. 18.

The electors are the citizens who will cast the state’s 11 electoral votes that actually determine the next president of the United States. The Tennessee electors meet Dec. 19 in Nashville to cast their votes.

82. Vols Offensive Line Rushing Into Much-Anticipated Season -

Jalen Hurd knows right where he stands among Tennessee’s running backs of the past and wants to be No. 1 in career rushing yards at the end of the 2016 season.

The junior from Hendersonville Beech High School needs 892 yards to surpass Travis Henry as UT’s career rushing leader.

84. Do Titans Finally Have Their Offensive Line? -

New Tennessee Titans coach Mike Mularkey’s stated desire to play “exotic smashmouth” football – especially on offense – requires a good offensive line. But if there’s one thing the Titans have not had in recent years it’s a good offensive line.

85. Vols Turnaround Rests on QB Dobbs -

Over the summer, Peyton Manning spoke with Josh Dobbs about the essence of a senior season for a college quarterback.

The conversation, Dobbs says, boiled down to one succinct piece of advice:

86. Dobbs’ Health is Priority No. 1 on Road to Being No. 1 -

Tennessee’s football team had nine players earn All-SEC preseason honors and got the nod as favorite to win the East Division as SEC Media Days concluded last week in Hoover, Alabama.

87. Will Mariota’s Second Season Resemble Luck or RG3? -

89. Too Big To Ignore: The SEC and Its Ever-Growing Football Media Days -

HOOVER, Ala. – The SEC football preseason always has been loud.

It is the broader questions and budget assumptions some commissioners want to change in the process.

93. County Schools Funding Compromise to Be Tested -

Fragile is probably the best way to describe the compromise that emerged this week from county commissioners to fully fund the Shelby County Schools budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1.

The plan that closes a $27.4 million gap between what the school system wants and what Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell proposed in April had eight votes on the 13-member commission in Wednesday, June 15, committee sessions.

94. Attorney Schattgen Joins Bass, Berry & Sims -

98. Up-Tempo Offense Will Need ‘Nasty’ O-Line -

If all goes well, the attention probably will be on the quarterback – an open competition at the moment – and the receivers and the running backs. That’s just how football works.

But ultimately the success of the University of Memphis offense next season will be about much more than the fast guys and the guy who gets the ball to them. First-year head coach Mike Norvell was offensive coordinator at Arizona State and he has brought with him Chip Long, who will serve as Norvell’s offensive coordinator, and who worked with Norvell from 2012 through 2015.

99. Last Word: Love and Glory and Guitars, New Frost and Scalia's Passing -
