1. Remarkable Recovery -

The dream had come true, at least part of it. Thirteen months after being struck in the head by a line drive while pitching for the Memphis Redbirds at Iowa, Daniel Poncedeleon was in the majors wearing a St. Louis Cardinals uniform. He hadn’t just recovered from a career-threatening injury, a life-threatening moment, he was in the big leagues.

2. Next Inning for Jason Motte? Teaching Players at U of M -

With former St. Louis Cardinals closer Jason Motte joining the University of Memphis baseball program as director of player development, a review is in order.

If you’re a student of Cardinals World Series history, you probably remember the highlights of their victory over the Texas Rangers in 2011. Down three games to two in Game 6 at Busch Stadium, David Freese provided the heroics with a two-out, two-run triple in the bottom of the ninth inning to tie the score at 7-7 and rescue the Cardinals.

3. Dream Redux -

On a recent afternoon at AutoZone Park, manager Stubby Clapp’s team had a two-run lead going into the ninth inning. Assigned the task of getting the last three outs: veteran big league closer Greg Holland, he of 186 career saves and three All-Star appearances, and on this day pitching for the Memphis Redbirds on a rehab assignment.

4. John Daly to Play in FedEx St. Jude Classic -

Two-time major winner and always colorful character John Daly will be in the field of this year’s FedEx St. Jude Classic June 7-10 at TPC Southwind.

Daly hasn’t played the event since 2014 and his best finish was a tie for fifth-place in 2001. Daly has won two majors: the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 British Open.

5. John Daly to Play In FedEx St. Jude Classic -

Two-time major winner and always colorful character John Daly will be in the field of this year’s FedEx St. Jude Classic June 7-10 at TPC Southwind.

Daly hasn’t played the event since 2014 and his best finish was a tie for fifth-place in 2001. Daly has won two majors: the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 British Open.

6. Pruitt Brings Fresh, Quieter Approach To Football Practice -

I find the culture shift of Tennessee football under new head coach Jeremy Pruitt this spring to be refreshing.

7. Redbirds Again Will Have Multiple Top Prospects -

Tuesday was Media Day at AutoZone Park for the reigning Pacific Coast League champion Memphis Redbirds. And some of the players who helped win that title were back; others likely will be.

The only constant in minor league baseball, after all, is the ever-changing roster. Pitcher Jack Flaherty, 22, was ticketed to begin the season with the Triple-A Redbirds. But when the Cardinals placed veteran Adam Wainwright on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, that opened a starting role for Flaherty; he was slated to get the ball Tuesday night, April 3, at Milwaukee.

8. Amid the Tumult, a Vol Legacy Finally Gets His Call -

Jacob Warren got one of the best phone calls of his life a couple of weeks ago. The senior tight end at Farragut High School was relieved to hear what new Tennessee football coach Jeremy Pruitt told him.

9. Game of Thrones? UT’s Cast Not That Smart -

When he was president of the University of Tennessee in 1959-70, Andy Holt often referred to the Vols athletics program, and particularly its football program, as “the front porch of the university.”

10. Fired Coach Helped Rescue UT Program That Had Hit Bottom -

After the fact, Butch Jones’ shortcomings are there for all to see.

He could recruit talented players but he couldn’t develop them. His hiring of assistant coaches was haphazard. He choked in late-game situations. He blurted out half-baked comments at press conferences. His interpersonal relationships were strained. He talked tough but had a thin skin.

11. Jason Motte Still Making His Pitch Against Cancer -

The backward K on those T-shirts that have become synonymous with the Jason Motte Foundation “Let’s Strike Out Cancer” campaign are beyond cool.

But so is that other logo, the image of Motte wearing No. 30 on his back as he was when he got the last out in Game 7 of the 2011 World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals.

12. Jones’ Blind Spot: Even 5-Stars Need Coaching -

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.

13. Peyton Manning 'Pulling Hard' for Vols Coach Butch Jones -

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Former Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning says he's "pulling hard" for Volunteers coach Butch Jones, who has received perhaps the toughest criticism of his five-year tenure over the last couple of weeks.

14. Redbirds Not Just Developing Players, but Winning Players -

When Gary LaRocque, the St. Louis Cardinals’ director of player development, came to AutoZone Park in mid-August, the Memphis Redbirds were just days away from clinching a playoff berth.

By that point, they had a large and impressive body of work that included a franchise-record 11 straight wins in April and May. Turns out, that winning streak was just the start of a special year.

15. Freshman Impact: Vols’ Best Rookie RBs -

Butch Jones let us in on a little secret recently when he said his freshman running backs will play for Tennessee this season.

That’s plural – running backs.

Jones’ plan is to use all three freshman backs – Ty Chandler, Tim Jordan and Trey Coleman – in some sort of rotation behind junior John Kelly. Given the nature of the game, putting the football in the hands of freshmen is risky business. But Jones is taking the plunge.

16. Ken Hause Cooks Up Strategy To Enhance L’Ecole Culinaire -

L'Ecole Culinaire-Memphis has added Ken Hause its campus director. In his new role, Hause is responsible for overseeing operations of the Memphis campus, including ensuring a rich student experience that leads to employment in the culinary field, while enhancing the school’s reputation for educational excellence, compliance and operational performance.

17. Power Pitching, Hitting Goal Of New UT Baseball Coach -

Tony Vitello wants to put a Power T in Tennessee baseball, and with it a yearly contender for SEC championships and NCAA tournament bids.

The new UT baseball coach was introduced last Friday at Tennessee’s Lindsey Nelson Stadium. He emphasized power pitching and power hitting as part of his rebuilding plan.

18. After Surgery, Redbirds Lefthander Gonzales Savoring Every Pitch -

The rise was quick. So was the fall. The St. Louis Cardinals used the 19th overall pick of the 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft on Gonzaga University lefthander Marco Gonzales. It was the first time since 1994, when the Cardinals drafted Wake Forest southpaw Bret Wagner, they had spent a first-round selection on a left-handed pitcher.

19. Former Vol Gault Sprints Into State Sports Hall of Fame -

It was way back in 1980 that John Ward, the University of Tennessee’s legendary former play-by-play man, delivered one of his more memorable lines.

20. Wide Receiver U? That’s So 20 Years Ago -

At the 2015 SEC Media Days, Tennessee coach Butch Jones referred to his school as “the original Wide Receiver U.”

The reference goes back to the days when the Vols were loaded with fast, talented pass receivers on the perimeter. In a heady stretch from 1982-91, UT had six wide receivers selected in the first round of the NFL draft – Anthony Hancock, Willie Gault, Clyde Duncan, Tim McGee, Anthony Miller and Alvin Harper.

21. Whether Toting Gloves or iPads, Women Have Role to Play in Baseball -

First-year Memphis Redbirds manager Stubby Clapp has played and coached for Canada’s National Team. He understands, perhaps better than most do, that baseball’s stage extends beyond the major leagues and its minor league feeder system.

22. 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? Currie, previously the athletic director at Kansas State, was introduced last week by new UT chancellor Beverly Davenport during a ceremony featuring fans, boosters, coaches and, of course, former Tennessee and NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.

23. What are the Odds? Blackburn is Still the Favorite -

Tennessee has its search firm and its search committee is in place to find the replacement for Dave Hart as the university’s athletic director.

Hart announced last August he would retire June 30, and with Tennessee undergoing a transition in its chancellor’s position, the search for Hart’s replacement was put on the back burner.

24. Jones Picks Bad Time to Lead UT Football Program -

There was a time in University of Tennessee football history when a nine-win season and a victory over Nebraska in a bowl would guarantee a coach something just this side of a lifetime contract.

But not right now.

25. Reid Inaugurated as President Of WestTNHBA Board -

James Reid, president of Memphis-based homebuilder Reid Homes Inc., has been inaugurated as board president of the West Tennessee Home Builders Association. Reid previously served as the 2016 vice president of the WestTNHBA executive committee and chairman of the 2016 VESTA Home Show.

26. Sports Notebook: If He’s Available, Should Grizzlies Take Labissiere In First Round? -

While it’s difficult to imagine the NBA matching the NFL for draft night drama this year – hopefully there are no Twitter bong photos seconds before tipoff – the mock drafts don’t seem to agree a lot beyond LSU forward Ben Simmons going to Philadelphia first overall and Duke forward Brandon Ingram going second overall to the Los Angeles Lakers.

27. Memphis Redbirds Set Roster for 2016 Season -

The Memphis Redbirds, the Triple-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, have announced their roster as of Thursday, April 7.

Fifteen players on the 25-man spent time in Memphis last season, including Dean Kiekhefer, Thomas Lee, Arturo Reyes, Ryan Sherriff, Miguel Socolovich, Sam Tuivailala, Justin Wright and Heath Wyatt on the pitching staff, catcher Alberto Rosario, infielders Dean Anna, Alex Mejia, Matt Williams and Jacob Wilson, and outfielders Anthony Garcia and Nick Martini.

29. 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.

30. Memphis Redbirds' Winning Record Doesn't Extend to Attendance -

The Memphis Redbirds are running last in the 16-team Pacific Coast League’s attendance race; the St. Louis Cardinals own the best record in the 30-team on-field competition run by Major League Baseball.

31. Different Strokes -

Five years ago, Jim Napolitano left Hillwood Country Club in Nashville to become general manager at Chickasaw Country Club. The economy was still wheezing and Chickasaw, which received its charter in 1922 – or two years after the 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote – was trapped in a time warp.

32. Changing Hometown, Careers Pays Off for Hyams -

Jimmy Hyams moved to Knoxville from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in the summer of 1985 looking for a fresh start to his journalism career and found a job as a sportswriter for the Knoxville News Sentinel.

33. Board of Regents Wants Students to Declare Majors -

The Tennessee Board of Regents wants its students to start declaring majors right away.

WPLN-FM reports Chancellor John Morgan recently told a group of policy makers that students who choose a college major right away are more likely to graduate. And he said that without a major, students end up taking extra classes that don't count toward their degrees.

34. Tennessee Board of Regents Wants Students to Declare Majors -

The Tennessee Board of Regents wants its students to start declaring majors right away.

WPLN-FM reports Chancellor John Morgan recently told a group of policy makers that students who choose a college major right away are more likely to graduate. And he said that without a major, students end up taking extra classes that don’t count toward their degrees.

36. E-Books Cut Costs for Tennessee State Students -

Tennessee State University students face higher costs, tacked on by state government, but that downer could be offset by “e-books” that can save students $735 each semester.

TSU is set to offer the electronic books to freshmen and sophomores for general education courses in an effort to lower the cost of traditional books, according to the university.

37. Motte Looks to Regain Form in Redbirds Rehab Assignment -

When St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jason Motte learned he had to have the elbow ligament replacement procedure commonly known as Tommy John Surgery, he didn’t ask, “Why me?”

38. Redbirds’ Grichuk Aiming to Make a Name -

It’s going to come up, so let’s get it out of the way now: Randal Grichuk was selected one pick ahead of Mike Trout in the opening round of the June 2009 First-Year-Player Draft.

39. John or Bill -

A PROPHET IS NOT WITHOUT HONOR, SAVE AROUND HERE. If William Faulkner looked out the window on this cloudy day he would see the still and always green magnolia leaves still and always sad still and always there still and always reminding remanding back still and always back in the sunless indolent superheated moment between a dark brooding now the even darker starker truth of then and the oppressive promise hanging in the coming storm of repeating the moment still and always the same.

40. MyMathLab Shows Success at U of M -

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) – Students attending Tennessee colleges and universities could see a tuition increase of 9.5 percent or more this fall, the chancellor of the Tennessee Board of Regents said Wednesday.

44. High Note -

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the University of Memphis’ Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music has planned a concert that will blow the roof off, assuming the walls don’t burst at the seams first.

The fact that Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection), which was chosen for the concert, is too big both sound-wise and size-wise for the school’s Harris Concert Hall is reminiscent of the growth that has taken place since the former “music department” became a “school of music” in 2000.

As soon as he heard the Memphis Redbirds were coming to town in 1998, Buddy Young bought season tickets and has renewed them every year since.

From the first two seasons at the old Tim McCarver Stadium to the debut of AutoZone Park in 2000, from Albert Pujols’ walkoff home run that won the Pacific Coast League title the first season at AutoZone to last year’s championship run, Young has been a die-hard Redbirds supporter.
