Sometimes you think you know what is going on and then something happens like Chris Wallace, the general manager of the Memphis Grizzlies, grabbing a bite to eat Monday at Humdingers out east with former Grizz coach Lionel Hollins.

7. Last Word: Pastner's Georgia Tech Post-Season, Who Filed and Greensward Invitations -

Not so fast with the off-season. There is a Memphis post-season after all.

And the Grizz found it Thursday like a light at the end of a long-tunnel where a lot of people slipped and fell and can’t get up.

13. Last Word: Cubits Anyone, The G-Word and The TV News Crime Block -

How long is a cubit? After a day in which many of you got about four to five inches of rain and more to come Thursday, it seems an appropriate and timely question.
And yes, there is a cubit conversion chart on line for converting that and other really old units of measurement no longer in use like the mina, drachma or the synodic month.
So the average cubit, which is supposed to be the length of a forearm, is 18 inches or a foot and a half. That’s 0.4572 of a meter, which might as well be an ancient unit of measurement.
Someone had to say it.
According to biblehub.com – I’m not making up websites – the book of Genesis sets God’s instructions to Noah as an arc with the dimensions of 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide and 30 cubits tall. And it was to be made out of gopher wood and covered inside and out with pitch.

Numbers rarely lie, and in Gregg Popovich’s case they finally piled up in a way too compelling to ignore.

The first day of spring was March 20, but, after months of fundraisers and petition filings, the last day of the month served as the start of this year’s political season.

79. Tigers Season Sits Somewhere Between Respectable, Not-Quite-Great -

So, how best to categorize the 2013-2014 season for the Memphis Tigers basketball team?

Great? Not even coach Josh Pastner has settled on that word.

80. Tigers Season Ends On Common Theme -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Geron Johnson had guaranteed the Memphis Tigers would win two NCAA Tournament games. But in the wake of their 78-60 loss to top-seeded Virginia Sunday night in the round of 32, Johnson looked a reporter in the eye and offered a revised declaration.

82. Tigers Hang to Beat GW in NCAAs -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Senior guard Michael Dixon Jr. once thought his college basketball career was done.

83. Tigers Look to Ace Next Tourney Test -

Memphis made the Final Four. Seriously, you can stop worrying about the first game this Friday against George Washington University.

The Tigers joined American, Michigan and national champion Dayton in the annual Academic Performance Tournament’s Final Four, as played out by Inside Higher Ed. In this tournament, the winners are based on the Academic Progress Rate, the NCAA’s multiyear measure of a team’s classroom performance.

84. Timid Play Knocks Tigers Out of Tourney -

Through a 31-game regular season and an 18-game grind in the American Athletic Conference, the University of Memphis never lost back-to-back games. It’s a notable achievement.

90. Tiger Nation Still Buzzing Over Win -

91. Memphis Finally Finding Touch From Deep -

When the Memphis Tigers missed 15 of 17 threes against Southeast Missouri State, the players and coach Josh Pastner said not to worry. And they had a 77-65 victory in that game to back them up.

The 17th-ranked Tigers came through the first 10 games of the season – the first chapter, if you will – with an 8-2 record overall and a 1-2 record against ranked opponents. They suffered a lopsided loss to Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla., beat the Cowboys on a neutral court, and had what NCAA bracket analysts would term a “good loss” by two points to Florida at Madison Square Garden.

94. No Need to Spin Tigers’ Nice Start -

Every special season has critical mileposts along the way. The Tigers’ first came in Stillwater, Okla., where, again, they weren’t up to the challenge of a ranked opponent in Oklahoma State.
