8. Last Word: Rain and Lightning, Recycling Blues and Polls and Campaigns -

Signs of festival season in the air Sunday after what was left of Tropical Storm Gordon dumped most of its remaining rain and wind on the city Saturday.

While sitting at his desk, Fred Jones needs only to take a quick look up and to his right to see the strides made by him and his Southern Heritage Classic.

12. Last Word: Southbrook Mall, Dean on Development and Cats & Thyroids -

Public money for a shopping mall with public uses is on the agenda for a special meeting this week of the EDGE board. And the Southbrook Mall saga is an extended story over several years with several different plans to get public money that at first blush was to fix the roof and perhaps HVAC and then let the private property owned by a nonprofit be on its way. It’s much more complex than that.

13. Last Word: Selling Local Soccer, Football's Arrival and Luttrell's Vetoes -

So the United Soccer League Memphis franchise is to be called Memphis FC 901. The branding was launched as the Labor Day weekend began with a video that is part Rogues nostalgia, soccer at school memories and a liberal dose of Grit ‘n’ Grind rhetoric from another sports franchise just down the street from AutoZone Park. The combination is another example of sports carrying the banner for the promotion of Memphis in general.

By the second quarter, Twitter couldn’t help itself: When will the “Mercer” rule go into effect? And Lord, have Mercer! On and on it went. But why not? The University of Memphis offense went on and on in a 66-14 season-opening romp over the FCS Mercer Bears.

Mentally, the ownership group bringing a United Soccer League team to share AutoZone Park with the Memphis Redbirds has been flipping the switch for the better part of two years.

The Tigers open the football season Saturday at the Liberty Bowl against Mercer and many of you are ready for football season – college or NFL but rarely both – to begin.

21. Tigers’ O-Line in the Business of Clearing Real Estate -

Much focus has fallen on what the Memphis football team lost from its offense – two-year starting quarterback Riley Ferguson and playmaking wideout Anthony Miller. But graduate transfer quarterback Brady White will line up behind an offensive line that returns four of five starters.

23. The Week Ahead: Aug. 27-Sept. 2 -

Good morning, Memphis! When the calendar turns to September on Saturday, it becomes all things 901 for Memphians. Saturday also marks the first professional soccer game to be held in Memphis and the season opener for the University of Memphis Tigers.

34. Now More than Ever, Tigers’ Riley Patterson Says There is No Other Option -

Long after the football had landed outside the goal posts, those missed field goals in the American Athletic Conference title game kept kicking around inside Riley Patterson’s head.

He had scored a career-high 13 points in that game (7PAT/2FG), but he’ll tell you that doesn’t matter.

35. Slot Payoff? Anthony Miller Could Be Just That For Chicago -

Pretty much everyone seems to believe the Chicago Bears got a steal when they selected University of Memphis wideout Anthony Miller No. 51 overall in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

37. Last Word: MIM Numbers, Feeding 700 Teenagers and Elvis Week Arrives -

The honored country tradition of the Memphis In May International Festival is one of those things that gets called into question whenever there is some thought about changes to the city’s biggest party.

42. Gainwell Learning Multiple Roles on Offense As He Embarks On Tiger Career -

Memphis Tiger freshman Kenny Gainwell lined up as a running back in the middle of Sunday’s Liberty Bowl practice and took a handoff through the offensive line for a short gain.

NEW YORK (AP) — For evangelical Christian leaders like Jerry Falwell Jr., this is their political holy grail.

Like many religious conservatives in a position to know, the Liberty University president with close ties to the White House suspects that the Supreme Court vacancy President Donald Trump fills in the coming months will ultimately lead to the reversal of the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. But instead of celebrating publicly, some evangelical leaders are downplaying their fortune on an issue that has defined their movement for decades.

53. Seivers in College Hall? Yeah, Sure, Why Not? -

Don’t look for any campaign propaganda to be mailed out. There won’t be any personal stumping. Heck, Larry Seivers even refused to fluff up his own bio.

57. Last Word: Draft Done, New Beale Moves and New Elvis -

Well, this is off to a rocky start. Jaren Jackson Jr. indicated he didn’t want to come to Memphis until minutes before the Grizz used their number 4 pick in Thursday evening’s NBA draft to select him and reverse years of bad history in draft selections. That was a lot to ask for in the pick of the youngest player in the draft at 18 years of age.

THE REAL GAME. I’ve handled two kinds of Canadian Grizzlies.

I inherited all that as their ad agency.

63. Exploring Kansas City’s Baseball, BBQ and Beer -

The Great War, its more than 16 million estimated deaths and the people and places forever changed by it are memorialized at the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City.

Just a few years ago, it was a struggle to get fans to show up for University of Memphis football games at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

66. Last Word: St. Jude's Reach Across A Divide, One Beale Numbers and Draft Math -

To no one’s surprise the legal skirmish over Confederate monuments is on its way to the Tennessee Court of Appeals.

...

69. Last Word: New Football League, Drone Testing and New Chandler Numbers -

The Alliance of American Football announces its presence in Memphis Thursday afternoon at the Liberty Bowl. And so begins another chapter in the city’s colorful history of start-up leagues. It is a long history dominated by football with a good stretch of the timeline taking in the city’s pursuit of an NFL franchise. Sometimes the rules are a bit different and the leagues have a history of not lasting very long. But they are fondly remembered.

70. Memphis To Be One of 10 Drone Test Sites -

72. Last Word: BSMF Notes, Political Dominoes and The Teacher Pipeline -

Yes, it rained. There was even hail for a brief period. None of that appeared to make a dent in the run of the Beale Street Music Festival. We are still waiting on exact box office numbers. The park was sold out – Ticketfly and at the gate -- early Sunday evening. It wasn’t a sellout Friday and Saturday but ticket supplies were tight for Tom Lee Park with the festival estimating there were thousands more people Saturday than there were Friday. Much to be said for a lineup this year that managed to strike a balance between hipster, cutting edge nobody-knows-about-this-yet new and used-to-be-big-not-so-long-ago nostalgia.

73. AutoZone Liberty Bowl to be Played on New Year’s Eve -
