4. Alabama is Media’s Overwhelming Pick To Win SEC Title -

Twice in the previous three years, SEC media correctly predicted the SEC champion. Both times, they did it by picking Alabama (2014, 2016). They went with Alabama again this year, predicting the Crimson Tide to defeat Georgia in the SEC title game.

5. The Press Box: Grizzlies Inevitable Victims of Identity Theft -

It was late last November and Zach Randolph was going to be away from the team for several days because of his mother’s passing. So before the Grizzlies played the Miami Heat at FedExForum, the head coach was asked how he would cover Randolph’s minutes.

6. Titans Draft About More Than Physical Skills -

It’s easy to look at the Tennessee Titans’ 2017 draft and conclude general manager Jon Robinson drafted for need.

After all, he took two wide receivers, a tight end and a cornerback among his first four picks. And all of those players will have better-than-average opportunities to earn early playing time.

7. Political Past, Present Meet as Wharton’s Portrait Joins Hall of Mayors -

When A C Wharton Jr. was Memphis mayor, his relationship with the Memphis City Council wasn’t always good. And it would usually get worse whenever he’d call a press conference in the Hall of Mayors on a Tuesday the council was meeting. Some council members thought it was to draw attention from them.

8. Atlanta Developer Files $200 Million Germantown Mixed-Use Plan -

Atlanta developers have filed an outline plan with Germantown leaders for a $200 million mixed-use town village development on the 32-acre “Arthur tract” west of the Saddle Creek South retail center.

10. Design Board Approves Application for Downtown BBQ Joint -

11. As Rookie NBA Head Coach, Grizzlies’ David Fizdale Earns Acclaim -

He has been forthright – with his players and when speaking with the media. First-year Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale doesn’t go in for verbal gymnastics or political double-talk.

Nor does he worry about appearances. He cancelled shoot-arounds on game days multiple times right before the All-Star break because he believed his veteran guys could use the rest. A more paranoid coach, a less assured man, might have worried about the fallout if the results were not good.

12. Tennessee Lawmakers Act on Balanced Budget Convention to Curb ‘Crippling’ National Debt -

Saying they can avoid a “runaway” convention for “crazy or radical ideas,” Republican state legislators are filing legislation calling for a convention of states in Nashville to adopt a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

14. 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.

15. Grizzlies Great at Winning Close Ones, But Upcoming Schedule Unkind -

The Grizzlies had just survived to beat the Orlando Magic 95-94 at FedExForum. This was on the first day of December and it kicked off what would become, at minimum, a four-game winning streak.

“We did a good job of staying in the moment,” center and team captain Marc Gasol said.

16. College Football Programs are Trending Toward Younger Hires -

When searching for a new head football coach, schools have been showing more willingness to hire an up-and-comer like Tom Herman or P.J. Fleck, rather than a veteran with a long track record of success such as Les Miles.

17. Fizdale Gets First Win as Grizzlies' Coach the Hard Way -

The night before his first game as an NBA head coach, David Fizdale received a surprise when he went to his front door.

“I thought I had a delivery,” the Grizzlies’ new coach said. “It turned out to be my mom. We had a great moment last night just talking about what (this first game) meant to us and our family.”

18. Cleveland Indians, ‘Major League’ Come to World Series -

The Chicago Cubs have the charm and the brand. Lovable losers. The Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field.

And they are fighting 108 years of history. The Goat Curse. The Gatorade on Leon Durham’s glove. Steve Bartman.

19. Vols Get Midterm B Despite Back-to-Back Losses -

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.

20. DeAngelo Made in Memphis, Outlasting Them All in NFL -

He has belonged to the NFL for a long time now, if you want to think of DeAngelo Williams that way, and truth is you’re probably divided on that. For he’ll always belong to the University of Memphis first, on that much we can agree.

21. Tigers to Start and End AAC Play With SMU -

The University of Memphis will open its 2016-17 American Athletic Conference schedule on Tuesday, Dec. 27, when SMU comes to FedExForum and will finish the season on Saturday, March 4, at SMU.

The 18-game conference slate includes nine games against opponents that had RPIs of 100 or better last season. Memphis, which went 19-15, returns American Conference Rookie of the Year Dedric Lawson, who averaged 15.8 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. Lawson’s 55 blocks ranked third in the league.

24. Mortgage Market Up 5 Percent in July -

The month of July heralded the same story for Shelby County’s mortgage market that’s been unfolding for a while now, and especially since the beginning of the year.

A combination of continued low rates, an improving local economy and buyers who feel better about their futures led to a 5 percent gain in purchase mortgage volume for July. That’s according to real estate information company Chandler Reports, www.chandlerreports.com.

25. How safe is our food? -

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – As Oklahoma City prepares to break ground on its first streetcar line in seven decades, and as other cities adjust to having them again, authors of a federally backed study suggest their routes move people with a purpose – not just target the tourist trade.

28. Fiz & Grizz Look Like Good Fit, But New Coach Will Need Players -

When the Memphis Grizzlies fired Dave Joerger after three seasons, the public reaction from players was, well, non-existent.

No fond farewells via Twitter from Marc Gasol or Mike Conley. And certainly not from Zach Randolph and Tony Allen.

29. Bass Learns to Focus His ‘Creative Laser Beam’ -

John Bass doesn’t look like an artist. In his crisp, checked shirt and brown wingtip oxfords, he looks more like somebody’s accountant. But stick an electric guitar in his hands, and it’s a whole different story.

30. Last Word: Behind Grit N Grind, Brooks at 100 and Massacre -

This is a 12-month-a-year basketball town. There’s the season, possibly a post season, which by NBA standards is a second season. (Yep, they are still playing.) And then there is the rest of the year when whatever has been about to boil over behind the façade of sports clichés finally begins to spill out into the open.

31. Grizzlies Hope to Grind Out a Playoff Win at Home -

April 22, 2004. The Memphis Grizzlies’ first home playoff game in franchise history at The Pointed House now known as Bass Pro Shops.

Hubie Brown was the Grizzlies coach then, and the NBA’s Coach of the Year for overseeing a 50-win season. The Gasol on the team was Pau and Bonzi Wells was the more controlled forerunner to Lance “Born Ready” Stephenson.

32. Memphis Gets Proven Commodity in Tubby Smith -

It started immediately, before the hiring was even official. The audible sighs on sports talk radio, the Twitter whining, and the figurative eye-rolling.

Tubby Smith? Really? That old guy?

If they didn’t call him “old” outright, they inferred it in every way imaginable.

33. Medical District Stakeholders: Neighborhood Full of Potential -

Some 2,500 new employees start jobs each year at employers in the Memphis Medical District, and about 1,300 new students each year start hitting the books at educational institutions there, too.

That’s according to Medical District Collaborative president Tommy Pacello, who says the 2.5-square-mile area between Midtown and Downtown that’s home to eight anchor institutions is full of untapped potential. So much so that his organization, which launched earlier this year, is leading a revitalization of the district that leans heavily on anchors like Regional One Health and Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare to help in a buy local, live local and hire local push for the neighborhood.

34. A Coffee Named 'Death Wish' Wins a Super Bowl Commercial -

NEW YORK (AP) — A coffee with an edgy name and made by a small business is getting a commercial in Super Bowl 50.

Death Wish Coffee Co. won a competition held by software maker Intuit for a 30-second spot during the third quarter of the big game on Feb. 7. The Round Lake, New York, company beat more than 15,000 other small businesses in voting by the public and Intuit employees.

35. Mediocre Grizz, McGwire Gets It, NCAA Madness -

Wednesday night, Jan. 6, Grizzlies at Oklahoma City on ESPN. It was, well, must-grimace TV.

With Mike Conley in street clothes because of a sore left Achilles, hopes were not particularly high from tip-off. But the Thunder closed the first quarter on an 11-1 run and the Grizzlies never mustered a threat, losing 112-94.

36. Rotten to the Core: Titans Fail to Develop Talent -

As the Tennessee Titans sink toward the end of another lackluster season, they head into the off-season with still more holes to fill for 2016.

Some of that, of course, is inevitable with any team as an NFL roster. Even on the best teams can have a 20 percent roster turnover in the off-season due to injuries, free agency and new draft picks coming on board.

37. Grizzlies Avoid Epic Loss, Still Lack Signature Win -

Perhaps Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015, will be the date that the Philadelphia 76ers break their record-tying 18-game losing streak to start an NBA season. The 76ers will be at home against the just-as-awful Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant, who recently announced he will retire at the end of this season.

38. Grizz Learning There’s No Extra Credit Just for Trying -

When they weren’t playing hard, that was the most distressing part.

How could the Grizzlies begin the season with so little want-to?

Now that they’ve rediscovered their pride – rising up in the fourth quarter at Utah to lose by a respectable margin, playing the hated Clippers close, and even competing with the Golden State Warriors for a while Wednesday, Nov. 11 – they still lose.

39. AFC South is There for the Taking -

Some team has to win the AFC South. League rules require it, even if no team truly deserves to go to the playoffs.

It was proven last year when the Carolina Panthers won the NFC South with a not-so-tidy 7-8-1 record, a mark that required four consecutive wins to reach.

40. Trezevant Hires Resident Services Head -

43. Is the SEC Still the Best? -

62. Democratic Divide Widens in Election Results -

Democrats have retained their seven-vote majority on the new single-district Shelby County Commission that takes office Sept. 1.

That and the re-election victory of Democratic incumbent Cheyenne Johnson in the race for Shelby County Assessor of Property were the only bright spots for a divided local Democratic Party that lost every other countywide partisan elected position to Republicans in the Aug. 7 county general election, just as they lost every countywide position to Republicans four years earlier.

63. Cohen Prevails, Incumbents Dominate -

68. County Commission to Discuss Brooks’ Residency -

A challenge of Shelby County Commissioner Henri Brooks’ residency is serious enough that her fellow commissioners are prepared to discuss it at a special meeting next week.

The Shelby County Attorney’s office is investigating whether Brooks lives in the district she has represented for the last eight years.

76. Hollins Move Latest In New Grizz Plan -

Lionel Hollins repeatedly said more than he should have.

But the 371,256 voters is fewer than 2008 when more than 400,000 Shelby County voters cast ballots. The percentage is about the same because there are fewer registered voters in Shelby County than there were four years ago after a purge by election officials.

90. Bynum, Bryant Help Lakers Beat Grizzlies in 2 OTs -

91. Gasol’s Path Leads Him To NBA All-Star Game -

People smiled and shook their heads. In high school gyms all across Shelby County, the curious came out to see the novelty act that was Pau Gasol’s younger brother and they dismissed the kid. If he looked soft playing for Lausanne Collegiate School against players a foot shorter and 100 pounds lighter – and he did – then he didn’t exactly project as an NBA player.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Kobe Bryant says the Los Angeles Lakers' early-season schedule has been every bit as brutal as they expected, forcing them to learn coach Mike Brown's system on the job rather than in practice.
