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.

50. 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.

51. Shoot for a Basketball Coaching Star? Memphis Would Have to Pay Big -

ATLANTA (AP) – Josh Pastner isn't promising a quick fix as Georgia Tech's basketball coach.

53. Tigers' Josh Pastner Going to Ga. Tech Would Mean Fresh Start for All -

The sports business is the expectations business. Always. No exceptions.

Josh Pastner, while taking some heat a couple of seasons ago at the University of Memphis, said he was getting out of the expectations business.

54. 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.
The light was Houston flaming out at home to Phoenix without the Grizzlies having to make a basket.
It’s all about the math. Stay in school, young people.

55. Don’t Chew With Your Mouth Full -

I am always looking for useful proverbs, adages, mottos, and the like. Especially stuff that can be easily memorized. Like “Don’t chew with your mouth full.” And “I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.”

56. Quotation Anthologist Still Going Strong -

In October 2008 I wrote a couple of columns that, taken together, set forth a quotation and then endeavored to correctly identify the source thereof.

57. Rudd + Bowen + Pastner = PR Nightmare at Memphis -

61. Memphis Powers That Be Could Still Vote to Keep Pastner -

Delegates are like points. States are like games. Conference titles are like party nominations.

And to win the general election is to win the national championship.

Yeah, sports and politics have a few things in common.

62. Tigers Can Still Draw Fans Needed For Payoff, NCAA Bid Less Likely -

The University of Memphis didn’t have much trouble with UCF, as evidenced by the 73-56 final score.

The paid attendance didn’t have much trouble with the actual attendance (scanned tickets), as evidenced by the 12,492 to 6,374 final score.

63. Doing My Civic Duty -

In October last year – just as I was preparing to teach Kafka’s “The Trial” for about the twelfth time – I received a missive from, of all places, the United States District Court. Guess what, it said (though, this is a paraphrase), you are being called to jury duty. As Yogi would’ve said, “It’s deja vu all over again.”

64. Last Word: Tiger Turmoil, Choosing Hotels and Grasshopper In The Committee Room -

When there is turmoil in the world of University of Memphis sports, it is almost impossible to hide and the turmoil inevitably surfaces toward a much faster end game than the city’s mercurial and lively politics. And then there is the period of mourning and regret -- unless the coach's name is John Calipari.
So consider these events all in the space of an overcast Tuesday afternoon.
University of Memphis cheerleaders in Overton Square and on Highland Avenue, near the campus, waving pompoms and signs urging Memphians on the drive home to support Tigers basketball.
Just before the rush hour, the university’s athletic department put out a statement that may have been intended to quell speculation about the future of Tigers basketball coach Josh Pastner but which was so enigmatic that it probably did just the opposite.
You be the judge:
“We continue to receive inquiries concerning the future of Tiger basketball.
Tom Bowen
, UofM Athletic Director, the athletic senior leadership team and the Office of the President will conduct a post-season review of the men’s basketball program, as is customary with all UofM sports teams.
We urge Tiger Nation to support this team through the end of the basketball season with special attention given to the final three home games at FedExForum.”
And late Tuesday evening, the Memphis Rebounders sent an email appeal urging a strong turnout for the Wednesday UCF game at FedExForum which is also on ESPN.
“If business or family obligations prevent you from attending, please give the tickets to family, friends or me,” wrote Harold Byrd of the Rebounders, “as we have multiple requests from many who can’t afford season tickets.”

65. University of Memphis Notebook: Burrell Rebounds From Suspension, Hearn Sets Record -

66. Sports Community to Memphis: Acknowledge Our Value -

In sports, it is natural for some – maybe even many – to say what a player, coach, team or even a city can’t do. Memphis knows this well.

There were doubts about the viability of a Downtown minor-league baseball park. But 16 years after AutoZone Park opened at Third Street and Union Avenue, the ballpark is as beautiful as ever – thanks in part to some $6.5 million in upgrades following the team’s purchase by the parent St. Louis Cardinals.

67. Memphis Sports Leaders to Speak on Local Impact -

You will find Memphis sports fans everywhere – including in the Redbirds dugout at AutoZone Park.

“Our players like having the NBA here and FedExForum nearby,” said Memphis Redbirds general manager Craig Unger.

68. Last Word: The Big Fizzle, John Jay Hooker's Exit And "A Great Sports Town" -

Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it – isn’t that how the saying goes?
In our case, it might be better to say everybody talks about the television weather coverage but nobody does anything about it.
As we all know now, Memphis dodged the “blizzard” warning artfully and passive-aggressively teased by several television stations who shall go un-named here because they know who they are and you do too.
That’s because they spent much of the day of "the blizzard that wasn’t" whining about the reaction from viewers who complained about the hype and then the promos the stations ran the day of the big fizzle.
We didn’t get much in the way of snow in Memphis, but we got a couple of feet of hype.

69. Sports Execs Tackle Teams’ Economic Impact -

Football fans in Charlotte, N.C., have had a fun season watching the NFL’s Carolina Panthers reel in 15 wins, a near perfect season, and secure the top playoff seed in their conference.

And it could turn out to be quite the edge for the Panthers in their quest to reach the Super Bowl.

70. One Tigers Football Era Ends, Another Begins -

As handoffs go, this one was a fumble.

From two great seasons under Justin Fuente to one game under an interim coach – tough spot for retained assistant Darrell Dickey, by the way – and now the ball is to be carried forward by first-time head coach Mike Norvell.

71. Last Word: Highland Row, Late Hit in Birmingham and Hi-Fi -

A happy Day 363 into 364 depending on when you are reading this. Sounds festive doesn't it? But let's not have any party hats or popping corks just yet.

74. Editorial: Tommy West’s Prophecy and Tigers Football -

As the University of Memphis football team’s Oct. 17 upset of Ole Miss became apparent with time still on the clock, there was a moment from the prophetic past in the ESPN television broadcast.

The producers of the telecast chose that moment to replay an excerpt from Tommy West’s November 2009 farewell to Tigers football after he was fired as head coach.

75. The Right Fit -
