11. 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?

12. Saban Dominance Bad for SEC? Not Buying It -

I keep reading that Nick Saban is ruining SEC football because his Alabama program is so dominant.

14. Elvis' Home-Away-From-Home Could Be Razed for Car Wash -

17. 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.

18. 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.

19. 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.

20. Last Word: Early Vote Numbers, Crime Q&A and School Suspensions in Memphis -

The last weekend of early voting is done and now we get the early vote surge through Thursday, which is the last day for early voting at the 21 polling places across Shelby County.

21. High-Scoring Ohio Good Warmup for Florida Game -

Tennessee football returns to normalcy this week, if you call a noon EDT kickoff normal.

25. Safe to Scorching: SEC Coaches Feel the Burn -

There are two kinds of football coaches in the Southeastern Conference: those that have gotten fired and those that haven’t gotten fired – yet.

28. Last Word: The Greensward Deal, Pulpit to Protest Call and Leader Federal's HQ -

31. August Ballot Known for What’s Not at the Top -

33. Last Word: Mud Island Money, Elvis Mystery and Beyond Barbecue -

It looks like the dry rub will be in order for Memphis in May's barbecue weekend with a shower or two keeping the dust down in Tom Lee Park Wednesday.

If you can see it through the smoke, Mud Island might strike a first-tme observer as a marked contrast to all of the activity in Tom Lee Park that goes right up to the bluff's edge.

34. Last Word: BSMF Looks Up, Overton Park Respite and Slow Economic Growth -

38. Bartlett Judicial Races Shifted To August Ballot -

The two municipal judges in Bartlett learned this week that they have races to run on the August ballot, not the November ballot they were scheduled to run on.

39. August Election Ballot Filling Out Ahead of April 7 Deadline -

40. Lynch at NFL Combine, UT Troubles, Memphis Carries Senior Day -

41. Sports Community to Memphis: Acknowledge Our Value -

In sports, it is natural for some – maybe even many – to say what a player, coach, team or even a city can’t do. Memphis knows this well.

There were doubts about the viability of a Downtown minor-league baseball park. But 16 years after AutoZone Park opened at Third Street and Union Avenue, the ballpark is as beautiful as ever – thanks in part to some $6.5 million in upgrades following the team’s purchase by the parent St. Louis Cardinals.

42. Memphis Sports Leaders to Speak on Local Impact -

“Our players like having the NBA here and FedExForum nearby,” said Memphis Redbirds general manager Craig Unger.

43. Last Word: The Big Fizzle, John Jay Hooker's Exit And "A Great Sports Town" -

Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it – isn’t that how the saying goes?
In our case, it might be better to say everybody talks about the television weather coverage but nobody does anything about it.
As we all know now, Memphis dodged the “blizzard” warning artfully and passive-aggressively teased by several television stations who shall go un-named here because they know who they are and you do too.
That’s because they spent much of the day of "the blizzard that wasn’t" whining about the reaction from viewers who complained about the hype and then the promos the stations ran the day of the big fizzle.
We didn’t get much in the way of snow in Memphis, but we got a couple of feet of hype.

44. Sports Execs Tackle Teams’ Economic Impact -

Football fans in Charlotte, N.C., have had a fun season watching the NFL’s Carolina Panthers reel in 15 wins, a near perfect season, and secure the top playoff seed in their conference.

45. Rotten to the Core: Titans Fail to Develop Talent -

As the Tennessee Titans sink toward the end of another lackluster season, they head into the off-season with still more holes to fill for 2016.

Some of that, of course, is inevitable with any team as an NFL roster. Even on the best teams can have a 20 percent roster turnover in the off-season due to injuries, free agency and new draft picks coming on board.

46. Average Gas Price Soon Under $2, Lowest Since Recession -

DALLAS (AP) — Gasoline is close to breaking below a key psychological barrier as drivers enjoy some of the cheapest pump prices since the recession.

47. College Football’s Coaching Carousel Is Still Spinning -

And so it goes with the current college football coaching carousel.

48. Tennessee’s Landlords Find Hidden Costs of Privatization -

Murfreesboro businessman Tom Hyde felt the sting of Tennessee’s privatization practices two years ago when a representative of Jones Lang Lasalle notified him he would have to pay the company a commission as part of his next lease agreement.

49. Memphis Still ‘Taking Care of Business’ -

50. Mid-South Farm Tourism Harvests Big Autumn Business -

Deciding to start a business that is focused on carving paths through a field of corn might not seem like a sound post-college plan.

But Justin Taylor and friend Chris Taylor weren’t thinking long term when they started what is today known as the Mid-South Maze at Agricenter International. It was 2001, and the pair had a friend who owned land in Arkansas, a few miles outside of Downtown Memphis. That April, at the last moment possible to plant and be ready for a corn maze that fall, the two took the plunge just to see what would happen.

51. Is State’s Role to Provide a Service or Turn a Profit? -

53. Memphis' Cost for Non-Pension Benefits Still Controversial -

The amounts are roughly the same at about $1 billion, but there’s a difference between City Hall’s liability for pension and non-pension benefits, including health insurance, for city of Memphis employees.

54. Plane Talk -

It was 2012 and Tom Jones was growing increasingly frustrated.

The root of Jones’ discontent was the high fares Delta Air Lines was extracting from Mid-Southerners at Memphis International Airport.

55. Memphis Finance Gurus Retrace City’s Fiscal Path -

Mayors come and go at City Hall and what was a priority for one administration can change with the next. But one constant is finance.

56. Stones’ Nashville Connections Go Way Back -

While Brad Paisley lives what he calls “a bucket list item” by singing while playing his guitar in typically showy fashion as the opening act for The Rolling Stones, the most important guitarist in rock ‘n’ roll history and a man idolized by Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood will be sitting in his house on Blueberry Hill in the hills of northern Davidson County.

57. Time to Produce -

MEMPHIS: THE SEQUEL. “People who make movies – people like Francis Ford Coppola and Milos Forman and Sydney Pollack, and our own Craig Brewer and Willy Bearden – and people like me who write and produce TV spots and videos all have something in common. We know just how damn good Memphis looks through a lens, we know how deep the local talent pool is for actors and crew, we know how wide the choice is for great locations.

If the University of Tennessee’s football team gains bowl eligibility with a victory Saturday at Vanderbilt, it can look back to a quarterback change Oct. 25 against Alabama as a pivotal point in the season.

61. Winless SMU on Tap for 3-3 Tigers -

They aren’t No. 18 East Carolina and they aren’t winless SMU. Halfway through the 2014 season, the Tigers are in the middle. The University of Memphis is 3-3 overall, 1-1 in the American Athletic Conference and in a large pack of teams whose seasons could yet reach lofty heights … or tumble down to the lowly place everyone knows too well.

62. County Commission Begins New Term -

73. Obama Carries Shelby, Cohen Over Flinn and Two Tax Hikes Defeated -

President Barack Obama carried Shelby County in unofficial Nov. 6 election returns as his Republican challenger Mitt Romney took the state’s 11 electoral votes.

Voter turnout in the most popular election cycle among Shelby County voters was 61.9 percent, about the same percentage as four years ago. But the 371,256 voters is fewer than 2008 when more than 400,000 Shelby County voters cast ballots. The percentage is about the same because there are fewer registered voters in Shelby County than there were four years ago after a purge by election officials.

74. Shelby Early Vote Shows Cohen Winning - Two Tax Questions Losing -

77. Unemployment Could Stay High as US Economy Slows -

WASHINGTON (AP) – High unemployment isn't going away – not as long as the economy grows as slowly as it did in the April-June quarter.

Weak consumer spending held growth to an annual rate of just 1.5 percent, even less than the 2 percent rate in the first quarter. And few expect the economy to accelerate in the second half of the year as Europe's financial woes and a U.S. budget crisis restrain businesses and consumers.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Under pressure to limit contagion from the British phone-hacking scandal, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. said Tuesday that it is considering splitting into two publicly traded companies.

81. Straighten Up and Fly Right -

NOTE TO DELTA AND THE AIRPORT AUTHORITY: IT’S NOT YOUR AIRPORT. Tom Jones has suggested that Delta is doing to us what hard-core protagonist Debbie did to Dallas.

82. Fed Unlikely to Raise Rates Until at Least 2014 -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Federal Reserve went further than ever Wednesday to assure consumers and businesses that they'll be able to borrow cheaply well into the future.

83. Coming Soon: Something Better -

Toothpaste tops tell it all. All of them used to be twist-off. Then came the flip cap, arthritis cap and even a pump if caps stressed you out.

84. Jazz Orchestra Swings Into Calvary and the Arts Concert -

The Memphis Jazz Orchestra’s date at the annual Calvary and the Arts series usually falls the same week as Veterans Day.

85. Education on the Farm -

In the Mid-South, pumpkin picking, corn-maze meandering and hayrides across fields of crisp fallen leaves spell October – by far the busiest month for local agritourism businesses.

Factors such as the development of supportive public agritourism initiatives, a renewed consumer interest in the origin and production of food, and the “buy local” movement have in recent years contributed to the growth of agritourism in the Mid-South.

86. Economy Adds 103,000 Jobs, But It's Not Enough -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The jobs crisis isn't getting worse. But it isn't getting much better, either.

90. Yes! Reinvent the Wheel! -

If you are trying to invent something already invented, somebody, like my father, will say “Don’t try to reinvent the wheel, son.” For instance, when I was younger, I came across a strange-looking screw that wouldn’t work with what I knew to be a screwdriver, so Dad handed me a Phillips to replace mom’s kitchen knife I was trying to make work. “Don’t …….”

94. Investors' Return to US Stocks Could be too Late -

BOSTON (AP) — Investors are finally inching back into the stock market. But are they too late?
