You can’t really do the reporting on Big River Crossing and the connections to it without going at it on bike. And so here are a few observations and opinions:

I feel like I will have to turn in my Frayser resident card. If this gear had been around when we had bell bottoms, before the return of straight leg jeans – maybe. But probably not.

When he was hired as Tennessee’s football coach in December 2012, Butch Jones used the term “infallible” to describe the system he was bringing to Knoxville.

Even if we give Jones the benefit of the doubt on the system he has attempted to install at UT, it’s clear that the head coach is far from infallible. A 3-3 record in Year 5 – with all three losses to SEC East competition, no less – is reflective of a coach who isn’t getting the job done.
