Tigers kick returner Tony Pollard let the ball settle into his hands. Do not take that part for granted. This was at the start of the second half Thursday night at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

9. Raising The Ceiling -

Here’s the thing about expectations: You either embrace them, turning them into some divine combination of daily bread and rocket fuel, or they crush you.

27. Last Word: No More Lottery Balls, The Voucher Bill Advances and UCLA -

Spring is in the air, which can only mean one thing – the Overton Park Greensward controversy is back on.

In a challenging season with too few legitimate Division 1 players for the rotation and nobody tall enough to truly count as a rim protector, coach Tubby Smith would not call the Tigers’ 57-50 victory over East Carolina last weekend “ugly.” No matter that it was the perfect word – at least under other circumstances.

37. New Coaches Highlight Past Year in Memphis Sports -

As always, you can categorize the sports year by the wins and losses.

The bad news for University of Memphis football fans? The Tigers’ bowl destination is a really, really long drive.

47. SEC Grades: ‘A’ for Alabama; UT, Ole Miss Should Be Grounded -

With a thrilling 48-44 victory over then-No. 20 Houston the day after Thanksgiving, Mike Norvell became the only first-year University of Memphis coach to win eight games.

While senior Tigers placekicker Jake Elliott has been a so-called model of consistency – he’s 184-of-184 on point-after attempts – the designation is a bit limiting.

52. Brick by Brick, UT’s Season Falling From Rocky Top -

Redshirt junior receiver Anthony Miller had a record-setting day with 12 catches for 250 receiving yards. But with the University of Memphis suffering a second straight defeat last Saturday, 59-30 to Tulsa at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium, he hasn’t spent much time replaying the good moments.

57. As Big 12 Stands Pat, AAC Looks To Grow Brand -

It wasn’t difficult to figure out why the Big 12 – or the Confused 10, if you prefer – started down the road of exploring expansion.

It turned out to be a road to nowhere – a twisting, turning road with many stops to ask for directions – and finally the league announced on Monday, Oct. 17, that it would, in fact, not expand.

58. AAC West Division Could be at Stake as 5-1 Tigers go on the Road to Face No. 24 Navy -

The Cross family’s living room in Millington is something of a mini-museum. A living testament, really, to what can happen when someone lives out the clichés – keep trying, never quit, believe in yourself – and decides the best way to deal with doubters is to figuratively head-butt them.

62. Can Tigers Duplicate Their 2015 Upset of Ole Miss? -

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze, predictably, is saying that he won’t use revenge as a main motivator.

63. 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.

64. Memphis Offensive Line Still a Work in Progress -

The University of Memphis football team has won the first two games under new head coach Mike Norvell and the cumulative tally in those wins over Southeast Missouri and Kansas is 78-24.

65. Memphis Running Game Must Improve, Ole Miss Seeks 3rd Win Over Bama -

On the plus side, the University of Memphis was not upset and the 35-17 victory over Southeast Missouri State was never in doubt. There was never that moment when one feared this would become what happened to Mississippi State (losing to South Alabama the opening weekend) or almost happened to Tennessee (pushed to overtime by Appalachian State).

66. The Week Ahead: September 12-18 -

Happy Monday, Memphis! There’s plenty of celebrating going on in the Bluff City this week, from COGIC’s annual Founder’s Celebration to the Cooper-Young Festival and The Peabody’s birthday bash. Check out details on those and other happenings to keep on your radar this week…

100. Last Word: EW&F, Midtown Rent Rise and A Closer Look At The Pyramid Deal -

One seemingly ordinary winter’s night in Downtown Memphis, I was going from event to event focused on work – specifically trying to stay on a schedule in which several things I wanted to cover were happening at the same time.
That is usually when you miss the experience that is Memphis on an everyday but definitely not ordinary basis.
So I get in a parking garage elevator and on the next floor David Porter – of Stax Records fame – gets on and he introduces me to his friend, Maurice White – the founder of Earth Wind and Fire. They too are trying to be in several places at the same time.
As they went their way and I went mine, I remember thinking this is quite a special place.
The encounter slowed my stride a bit and took some of the edge off the schedule – noticing for the first time how many people were out on a winter’s night in our city having nothing but a good time made better by all of us going our different ways.
White, who was from Memphis, died Thursday with his band’s music stronger and more relevant than ever.
If you grew up listening to EWF when the songs were new, you know that the bright and funky sound and the positive, affirming, and diverse identity of this music was quite intentional at a time when there was plenty going on that could have pushed it the other way.
If your parents or grandparents grew up listening to EWF, this music is a part of your family’s tradition that calls to mind special occasions and even your own mild surprise the first time you found yourself dancing to it with your children.
And if your folks’ vinyl record collection from back in the day included Earth Wind and Fire, that was one of the ones you listened to when they weren’t around and one of the ones you took with you when you got a place of your own.
