1. Last Word: Booksellers Options, New Parking Spaces and The Memphis Open
- Friday, January 06, 2017
Somewhere in the back of our minds, I think most of us knew there were probably some circumstances under which Booksellers at Laurelwood might remain open. And as it turns out there are some terms the owner is talking about just past the post-New Year’s shock of work that the store will close in February.
2. What Lies Ahead for UT Athletics in 2017
- Friday, December 30, 2016
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...
3. The Alamo? No, Vols Rally Around Loss to Vandy
- Friday, December 23, 2016
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.
4. Bad Week for Jones Means Losing On, Off the Field
- Friday, November 04, 2016
If Tennessee football coach Butch Jones thought last Saturday night was bad in Columbia, South Carolina, he had no idea what was waiting when he got back to Knoxville.
Fans were still stewing over UT’s 24-21 loss to unranked South Carolina. It dropped the then-ranked No. 18 Vols (5-3, 2-3 SEC) out of the polls and probably out of contention for the East Division title and SEC Championship game.
5. Vols Prepare for ‘Grind’ of Weaker Foes
- Friday, October 28, 2016
Tennessee begins the easy part of its football schedule Saturday, Oct. 29, at 7:15 p.m. (ESPN2) against South Carolina in Columbia. Just don’t tell UT coach Butch Jones this is the easy part of the schedule.
6. Vols Get Midterm B Despite Back-to-Back Losses
- Friday, October 21, 2016
Tennessee’s football team is spending this week’s open date trying to get healthy after a rugged four-game stretch of SEC football in which they defeated Florida and Georgia and lost to Texas A&M and Alabama.
7. Could This Be the Year the Crimson Tide Rolls Out With a Loss at Tennessee?
- Friday, October 14, 2016
Tennessee defensive end LaTroy Lewis was raised in Akron, Ohio, and recalls a special Saturday of football each fall when he was a youth: Ohio State vs. Michigan.
“That’s what I was taught my whole life,” Lewis says, “and then I got down here in the South, and it was kind of like: ‘Is there any other game beside Tennessee and Alabama?’”
8. For the First Time This Season, Vols Set to Play as Underdog
- Friday, October 07, 2016
You almost can feel Tennessee is a football team of destiny as the most difficult games of the schedule loom Saturday at Texas A&M and Oct. 15 against Alabama at Neyland Stadium.
There aren’t many successful Hail Mary passes, but the Vols got one last Saturday and beat Georgia 34-31 in Athens. Tennessee trailed Georgia 17-0 in the first half.

10. Enjoy The Hype, Vol Fans. It’s Been A Long Time
- Friday, August 26, 2016
The temptation here is to throw a couple of buckets of cold water on the great expectations for the Tennessee Vols this season.
But you know what? Enjoy the hype, UT fans. Any fan base that was subjected to three years of Derek Dooley deserves this moment.
11. Vols Offensive Line Rushing Into Much-Anticipated Season
- Friday, August 19, 2016
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.
12. Confident Serrano Playing for Future at UT
- Saturday, February 06, 2016
Tennessee baseball coach Dave Serrano wasn’t setting the bar too high when he met with the media for his 2016 preseason press conference.
Serrano made that mistake before the 2015 season with talk of reaching an NCAA regional and perhaps Omaha, Nebraska, site of the College World Series.
13. North Texas Could Never Upset the Vols, Right?
- Saturday, November 14, 2015
No way Tennessee’s football team can lose Saturday’s homecoming game against North Texas, one of the worst teams in college football.
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.
14. Won’t be the same without the head ball coach
- Saturday, November 07, 2015
I miss Steve Spurrier.
It won’t be the same without Spurrier coaching South Carolina when Tennessee (4-4, 2-3 SEC) plays host to the Gamecocks (3-5, 1-5) on Saturday.
It wasn’t the same this week without Spurrier throwing a jab or two at UT leading up to the game.
15. College Football Notebook: For Once, Vols on Right Side of Comeback
- Tuesday, October 13, 2015
After three times blowing double-digit leads this season, the University of Tennessee Volunteers rallied from a 21-point deficit to upset Georgia 38-31 on Saturday, Oct. 9.
It was a history-making day for quarterback Joshua Dobbs, who threw for 312 yards and rushed for 118 yards, marking the second time in Tennessee history a player had more than 300 yards passing and more than 100 yards rushing. (Dobbs did it for the first time in program history against South Carolina in 2014.) Dobbs also accounted for five touchdowns: three passing and two rushing.

- Friday, August 14, 2015

21. Injuries Slow Development of Vols Defensive Players
- Saturday, April 11, 2015
Tennessee football fans might want to look past the defensive lineup for the Orange & White Spring Game. It will bear little resemblance to the unit that will start the 2015 season opener against Bowling Green on Sept. 5 at Nashville’s LP Field.
22. Vols’ Dobbs Embraces the Role of ‘CEO Quarterback’
- Saturday, April 04, 2015

24. Jones, Vols Make Honor Roll With Recruiting Class
- Saturday, February 14, 2015

26. Vols Unlikely to Repeat November 2013 Collapse
- Saturday, November 15, 2014
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.

- Friday, June 07, 2013
What do you follow a splash park with at the Children’s Museum of Memphis?
A robotic cow, of course.

Splash” water park at Hollywood Street and Central Avenue, museum public relations and marketing director Carrie Roberts says plans are being made for the robotic cow and a barn on the other side of the museum property including an outdoor classroom.
