1. Last Word: Health Care Plan React, Treasury Footprint and Tom Bowen - Take Two -

It’s like they aren’t even looking at the same legislation. That’s one explanation of the very different reviews the Senate health care bill got Thursday as it was unveiled in Washington. Illustrating the contrast, the reactions of Republican U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Democratic U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen of Memphis.

2. Last Word: Cyber Attacks, Second Farmers Market Downtown and The Council Way -

It’s on. Shelby County commissioners coming out Wednesday in committee against the idea of ending Justice Department oversight of Juvenile Court. And the discussion was, as always, an interesting one including not only critics like commissioner Van Turner but commissioner Terry Roland and County Mayor Mark Luttrell.

3. Last Word: End of The Season, Honoring Forrest and MATA's Coming Campaign -

It’s over. No Game 7 for the Grizz and the off-season begins. Spurs advance after beating the Grizz at the Forum Thursday 103 – 96. But in the process, the Grizz created a chapter in Memphis basketball lore where it is about more than winning on the court.

4. 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.

5. Last Word: The Day After, $21.9M More for SCS and First Tennessee Overdrafts -

Take That For Data, Indeed. The Grizz crack the century mark over the Spurs 105-94 in a motivated Game 3 of the playoff series before a loud and proud Forum. Game 4 is Saturday on Beale. Meanwhile, Markel Crawford chooses. He will be leaving the Tigers basketball program for Ole Miss.

6. Who Will Grab the Spotlight in Vols' Spring Game? -

Tennessee completes its fifth spring practice under head coach Butch Jones on Saturday, April 22, at 4 p.m. with the DISH Orange & White Game at Neyland Stadium.

It’s merely the beginning as the Vols prepare for the 2017 season.

7. Tennessee's 6-6 Freshman Has a Message: ‘I Will Not Eat You’ -

Tennessee football coach Butch Jones knew he got a special player when he signed five-star offensive lineman Trey Smith of University School of Jackson.

Jones says he got a special person in Smith, too.

8. Last Word: Spring Votes, Those Tax Bills and Tim McCarver on Baseball Changes -

Look for more details on the specifics of the “Gateway” project to start to emerge now that a crucial if overlooked piece of the geographic puzzle in the north Downtown area has come into public view. The city’s largest hotel, also the city’s original convention center hotel, is about to change hands and go back to flying the Marriott flag.

9. Reflecting on 2017 Class, Looking Ahead to 2018 -

Recruiting is the lifeblood of a college football program, and the cycle never ends.

As UT’s recruiting grind continues and spring practices opened this week, I caught up with Ryan Callahan of 247Sports to talk about the 2017 class. Callahan covers UT recruiting, and here’s what he has to say about the 2017 class, which consists of 22 three-star recruits, four four-stars and one five-star (offensive lineman Trey Smith of University School of Jackson), according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

10. 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.

11. Last Word: Voucher Movement, The Battle of Pontotoc and Ch-Chandler Numbers -

Republican state Senator Brian Kelsey of Germantown had a very good week in the state capitol this week. His school voucher bill got unanimous votes in House and Senate committee this week despite a tide of opposition from local elected officials and leaders including fellow legislators in the Shelby County delegation and all seven public school districts in Shelby County including the six suburban school systems.

12. Last Word: 'Sun Records,' Ole Miss's Lack of Control and Haslam in 2018 -

I am not going to be one of those people who at this late date in the history of television dramas based on real people points out every departure from reality. The first episode of the CMT television series “Sun Records” Thursday was a scene-setter and introduction of sorts to an ensemble cast with plenty of opportunities to name that place in Memphis. That usually means a pretty complex story line to come and there are more than enough memorable characters in the story of Sun.

13. Last Word: Wessman Trouble, Selling 495 Union and An Underground Film Icon -

When Wessman Development came to town last year with the idea of a boutique hotel, the Palm Springs, California company was part of the flood of smaller hotel projects Memphis was seeing and is still seeing. Then the company added another hotel and just this month the redevelopment of a building on Madison west of Second Street as apartments with retail on the ground floor. In a very short period of time, Wessman has had a lot of plans for Memphis.

14. You Gotta Have Heart: UT’s 2017 Recruiting Class -

Butch Jones did it again. The Tennessee football coach gave opponents press conference fodder with another one-liner while putting his spin on the Vols’ 2017 signing class.

It happened a day after the Feb. 1 National Signing Day when UT’s class was rated No. 17 nationally in the 247Sports composite rankings.

16. Last Word: The Grizz Farm Club Moves, Changing the NAACP and $15 An Hour -

How many of you knew the Iowa Energy was what amounts to a minor league team connected to the Grizz? How many of you knew that before Wade Baldwin and Troy Williams got sent there last month?

17. Bronczek to Succeed Smith as FedEx President Feb. 1 -

David Bronczek will be promoted to the role of president and chief operating officer of FedEx Corp. 11 months ahead of schedule, the shipping giant announced Monday, Jan. 23.

19. What Lies Ahead for UT Athletics in 2017 -

Hey Vols fans, Happy New Year. May your 2017 year in Tennessee sports be better than your 2016 year in Tennessee sports. Perhaps, a fresh start is what we all need. Let’s face it. The Music City Bowl wasn’t where Tennessee wanted the 2016 football season to end. The Vols were picked to win the SEC East Division in preseason and floundered to an 8-4 record in the regular season, 4-4 in the SEC. Their football season was about the norm for most UT sports in 2016: average. Here are some dates to mark in hope of better things ahead in 2017...

20. New Coaches Highlight Past Year in Memphis Sports -

As always, you can categorize the sports year by the wins and losses. By the Grizzlies making a sixth straight playoff appearance and by the University of Memphis football team going to a third consecutive bowl game. And by the Big 12 eliminating U of M from the expansion process before the league ditched the idea altogether.

21. Long Offseason Ahead for Jones -

Tennessee football coach Butch Jones has plenty of winning to do next year. For starters, UT (8-4, 4-4 SEC) needs to win the Dec. 30 Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl in Nashville against Nebraska (9-3, 6-3 Big Ten).

22. Last Word: MATA Plans Bigger, Tiger Football Exits and Heartbreak Hotel Closes -

With a set of route and schedule changes about to hit the streets in December, the Memphis Area Transit Authority is embarking on a larger more comprehensive change in the city’s bus system. It is nothing less than a rebuilding of the city’s public transportation system that starts the planning process in November.

23. Resetting the Bar -

David Fizdale is a first-time NBA head coach. Tubby Smith is a college coach with a Hall-of-Fame resume.

In Memphis, on the eve of the 2016-2017 NBA and college basketball seasons, they also share this in common: They are leaders that are worlds apart from their most immediate predecessors. Their mere presence, before the season even tips off, has changed the hopes, dreams and expectations for the city’s hoops fans.

24. Last Word: FedEx Changes, The Blue Cross Exit and Armageddon -

Was that really autumn Monday or was the drop in humidity a prank to get the trees to drop their leaves?

The FedEx shareholder’s meeting Monday included some changes in the management chart at FedEx Corp. – more like some changes in the seating with one retirement by Mike Glenn, whose office is next to company founder Fred Smith.

25. Smith Hands Off FedEx President’s Position To Bronczek -

With little fanfare, FedEx Corp. founder Fred Smith introduced himself Monday, Sept. 26, at the start of the company’s annual shareholder’s meeting as the board chairman and CEO of the company.

26. Last Word: In Charlotte's Shadow, EDGE Action and Elvis TV Bio at Graceland -

The Memphis City Council’s final vote next month on pot decriminalization is shaping up to be about more than marijuana. The vote on the ordinance proposed by council member Berlin Boyd is the leading edge of a larger push for changes in the local criminal justice system, according to Boyd.

27. ‘Breathtaking’ Transformation in Bristol -

28. Looks Like 10-2, SEC Title Game, Orange Bowl for UT -

29. 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.

30. Journey, Doobie Brothers Playing FedExForum May 25 -

Journey and the Doobie Brothers will bring the “San Francisco Fest 2016” tour to FedExForum on Wednesday, May 25, bringing together two of the iconic groups that helped define the “San Francisco Sound.” The show, produced by Beaver Productions, includes special guest Dave Mason.

31. Roster Remix? Grizzlies May Finally Shake Things Up -

As amazing as it was that the Memphis Grizzlies set an NBA record by using 28 players this past season, it’s almost more unbelievable that they had to sign eight different players to 11 separate 10-day contracts.

32. Last Word: Grizz Aftermath, Mayor-A-Rama and Prince Saves Hendrix -

116-95, Spurs over the Grizzlies is how the NBA second season ends in Memphis. A four-game sweep of a team that now heals and perhaps changes on its way to the fall.

33. Memphis Takes Pounding in Opener With Spurs -

The Memphis Grizzlies were not alone in their unmitigated defeat. The NBA Playoffs started this past weekend and while descriptions of what happened to the Grizzlies within the shadow of the Alamo in San Antonio were colorful – “a 106-74 bludgeoning by the San Antonio Spurs” read one account at NBA.com – this was hardly an isolated incident.

34. Titans Face Number of Questions As Season Ends -

The Tennessee Titans are on the clock. If they lose to the Indianapolis Colts in Sunday’s season finale, the Titans franchise will have the first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft for the first time since the Houston Oilers took Earl Campbell first overall in 1978.

35. Grizzlies Sign Ryan Hollins, Release Russ Smith -

The Memphis Grizzlies have released second-year guard Russ Smith and signed veteran center Ryan Hollins, the team announced Tuesday, Dec. 29.

Hollins, a 7-footer, impressed in training camp before being released and signing with the Washington Wizards. He started three of five games for the Wizards and was waived on Dec. 23. Hollins, a 10-year NBA veteran, will give the Grizzlies a backup center for Marc Gasol.

36. Grizzlies Sign Ryan Hollins, Waive Guard Russ Smith -

38. Northwestern Defense Tough, But Give Edge to UT -

There’s nothing like spending the Christmas holidays in Florida, and Tennessee’s football team will savor every minute of it for the second consecutive year.

41. North Texas Could Never Upset the Vols, Right? -

No way Tennessee’s football team can lose Saturday’s homecoming game against North Texas, one of the worst teams in college football.

Right?

Tennessee (5-4) was a 40.5-point favorite early in the week coming off a 27-24 victory over South Carolina last Saturday at Neyland Stadium.

42. Warriors, Curry Too Much For Grizzlies – And Everyone Else So Far -

Stephen Curry had seen this game before, in this building, in the playoffs and in the regular season. The Memphis Grizzlies were trying to do what they always try to do – drag a high-powered offensive machine such as the Golden State Warriors into the mud and not let them get up.

43. Together Again -

To look ahead to next season, we must first go back to last season. To that heady time when the Grizzlies held a 2-1 series lead over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA’s Western Conference semifinals.

44. Here’s How Vols Grade Going Into Second Half -

Order has been restored in Vol Nation, at least for now.

Tennessee’s football team restored it with a 38-31 victory over then-No. 19 Georgia last Saturday at Neyland Stadium.

UT’s rally from a 24-3 deficit has much of the fan base back on board with Vols coach Butch Jones and his staff after a precarious week leading up to the game.

45. Grizz May Be Able to Speed Up A Few Minutes at a Time -

It meant nothing – the final score, the individual stats … none of it mattered. And yet when the Grizzlies ran out for the first preseason game of the 2015-16 season, before a half-empty FedExForum on Tuesday Oct. 6, it felt good and it felt right.

46. Young Energy Could Boost Veteran Grizzlies -

Of the 15 Grizzlies players on guaranteed contracts, four are entering their second season in the NBA and one is a rookie.

While all of those players currently reside outside the team’s regular rotation, the four second-year players have a chance to carve out a niche for themselves; rookie forward Jarell Martin fractured his foot in a summer workout and his development figures to be delayed.

47. Heat Really On for Jones Against Arkansas -

It’s been a long week for Tennessee football coach Butch Jones.

Kickoff can’t come soon enough for Jones and his staff Saturday night when the Vols (2-2, 0-1 SEC) play host to Arkansas (1-3, 0-1) at Neyland Stadium.

But a timetable obtained by WTVF-TV shows officials planned to take the next step within days of the Aug. 21 deadline for responses to a request for information from potential vendors.

53. Despite Personnel Losses, UT’s Defense Should Be Much-Improved -

John Jancek begins his third season as Tennessee’s defensive coordinator under head coach Butch Jones, and thanks to two solid recruiting classes should have his best defense with the Vols.

UT is bigger and faster on the defensive side than the previous two seasons, when the Vols showed improvement from the 2012 season by shaving more than 100 yards and 11 points per game allowed.

54. Tennessee Lawmaker Calls for Maker of New State Logo to Give Refund -

66. Overtimes, Trade Dominate Grizz Weekend -

The Memphis Grizzlies have played a lot of big games and made a lot of moments in recent years at FedExForum. Sunday’s game against the Phoenix Suns, which required two overtimes and included Tony Allen, aka The Grindfather, hugging an inflatable birthday cake as fans serenaded him, was one of the wilder and stranger ones.

67. Vols Take Plenty of Momentum Into Offseason -

KNOXVILLE – There’s nothing like going into the offseason on a high note. The Vols will be riding the momentum from the resounding 45-28 victory against Iowa in the Jan. 2 TaxSlayer Bowl through the end of recruiting season, winter workouts, spring practices and into the summer months.

68. Grizzlies Move to Front in NBA Trade Rumors -

One only need look back to Monday, Jan. 5, at FedExForum to understand the business of the NBA. The New York Knicks were warming up for their game against the Grizzlies when word came down that team president Phil Jackson was done waiting for things to get better on their own.

The Vols return to campus for practice Saturday and, after a Sunday practice, fly to Jacksonville for the Jan. 2 game against Iowa in the TaxSlayer Bowl, formerly the Gator Bowl.

71. Gasol, Grizzlies Refuse Satisfaction -

Odds are, Marc Gasol will not win the NBA’s Most Valuable Player Award this season.

But as Gasol would be the first to tell you, that doesn’t matter.

Neither does it take away from that moment at the end of a recent game here against the Dallas Mavericks. Gasol was at the free-throw line, scoring the last two of his 30 points as the Grizzlies secured a 114-105 victory and improved to 17-4, when the serenade started.

72. Vols Unlikely to Repeat November 2013 Collapse -

KNOXVILLE – University of Tennessee football coach Butch Jones doesn’t have to remind his team about the disappointing fade last November.

UT went 0-3 to start what has historically been its best month of football. First, the Vols lost to Missouri and Auburn. Then a 14-10 loss to Vanderbilt in Neyland Stadium knocked the Vols out of bowl eligibility.

73. Dobbs Makes Strong Case for Vols Starting QB Job -

KNOXVILLE – University of Tennessee football coach Butch Jones faces a big question this week about his starting quarterback for Saturday night’s game at South Carolina.

74. Is This the Year the Vols Stomp the Chomp? -

75. Vols Hope to Snap 20-Game Road Slump vs. Ranked Opponents -

KNOXVILLE – It doesn’t get much easier for the University of Tennessee’s football team.

76. Pre-K’s Place -

It isn’t an application for federal pre-kindergarten funding the state filed earlier this month in Washington, the office of Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam emphasizes.

“It’s a note of intent to apply,” said Dave Smith, Haslam’s communications chief, last week.

77. Coverage Gap Leaves Rural Tennessee Hospitals on Life Support -

Four rural hospitals have closed and dozens are at risk of shuttering: That’s the fallout, some say, from Gov. Bill Haslam’s decision not to join the Affordable Care Act in 2013 and tap into millions in promised federal funds for Tennessee’s financially-strapped health care institutions.

78. Governor Gets Report on Tennessee Juvenile Jails -

None of the receivers on the University of Tennessee football team were born when the program was dubbed “Wide Receiver U” in the 1980s.
