1. Memphis a ‘Football School’ In Fuente-Norvell Era -

The first time Darrell Dickey was an assistant coach at the University of Memphis, way back in 1986, current head coach Mike Norvell was 5 years old.

So it is not an exaggeration to say that it has taken a lifetime for Tiger football to get where it is today. 

2. Busiest Season for Sports Hits Big Orange Country -

It’s the busiest time of the year for Tennessee athletics. There’s even some football to whet your gridiron appetite.

The Vols begin spring football practices March 21, and the DISH Orange & White Game is April 22 at Neyland Stadium. By then, much will have happened in Big Orange Nation.

3. You Gotta Have Heart: UT’s 2017 Recruiting Class -

Butch Jones did it again. The Tennessee football coach gave opponents press conference fodder with another one-liner while putting his spin on the Vols’ 2017 signing class.

It happened a day after the Feb. 1 National Signing Day when UT’s class was rated No. 17 nationally in the 247Sports composite rankings.

4. Dobbs Had a Great Run, But Manning is Still No. 1 -

Tennessee senior Joshua Dobbs has created a quarterback controversy. Dobbs finished his college career Dec. 30 when UT beat Nebraska 38-24 in the Music City Bowl in Nashville. He accounted for 409 total yards – 291 passing and 118 yards rushing – and was chosen the game’s MVP.

5. What Lies Ahead for UT Athletics in 2017 -

Hey Vols fans, Happy New Year. May your 2017 year in Tennessee sports be better than your 2016 year in Tennessee sports. Perhaps, a fresh start is what we all need. Let’s face it. The Music City Bowl wasn’t where Tennessee wanted the 2016 football season to end. The Vols were picked to win the SEC East Division in preseason and floundered to an 8-4 record in the regular season, 4-4 in the SEC. Their football season was about the norm for most UT sports in 2016: average. Here are some dates to mark in hope of better things ahead in 2017...

6. 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.

7. Last Word: Liberty Bowl Memories, Talk About Violence and The Year In Ed & Med -

Grizz fall to the Celtics in Boston Tuesday 113-103. With Mike Conley and five other starters out. Away from triple digits, it is SMU over the Tigers at the Forum Tuesday 58-54.

8. The Alamo? No, Vols Rally Around Loss to Vandy -

Tennessee’s football team can’t afford to get too merry when it goes into Christmas break this weekend. Not with the way it finished the 2016 regular season, and not with a chance for some redemption.

9. Our Nostalgia is a College Running Back’s Unnecessary Risk -

There is never enough money and there are always too many games. We all recognize this truth, right? The NBA’s 82-game schedule remains an owner’s revenue-generating necessity while simultaneously the reason to rest star players in hopes of avoiding injuries.

10. Memphis Football Bigger Than One Coach Or QB -

As we count down to the University of Memphis playing in the Tuesday, Dec. 20, Boca Raton Bowl, I find myself recalling what athletics director Tom Bowen said when pressed about why Arizona State offensive coordinator Mike Norvell was the Tigers’ choice for head coach.

11. Tigers’ Bowl Trip About Getting – and Keeping – That Winning Feeling -

The head coach who rebuilt the program, Justin Fuente, had left for Virginia Tech. The star quarterback, Paxton Lynch, was awful in his final game as a Tiger. And it rained … and rained.

12. Tigers to Face Western Kentucky in Boca Raton Bowl -

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

The good news? It’s the Boca Raton Bowl in Florida and not a return trip to the Birmingham Bowl, where last year the Tigers lost to Auburn after coach Justin Fuente had left for Virginia Tech.

13. Fuente Succeeding at Va. Tech, Norvell Keeping it Rolling at Memphis -

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.

Interestingly, his eighth victory came as Tom Herman coached his last game at Houston. Herman is the new coach at Texas, succeeding Charlie Strong. The coaching ladder in the American Athletic Conference can definitely reach into the Power Five.

14. Austin Nichols Story Didn’t Have to End This Way -

Right before the 2014-2015 University of Memphis basketball season, forward Austin Nichols said this: “Our chemistry is better this year and I say that all positive. Nothing against the guards last year, we’re just jelling better together this year.”

15. Newspaper Deal Falls Apart as Gannett Gives Up on Tronc -

NEW YORK (AP) – USA Today publisher Gannett walked away Tuesday from its attempted takeover of Tronc, the owner of the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and other major dailies.

Gannett's target was elusive from the beginning, with a publicly contentious back-and-forth between the two companies. Tronc, formerly known as Tribune Publishing, rejected at least two bids from Gannett since April because it said it preferred to go it alone and focus on tech-driven initiatives involving artificial intelligence and global expansion in entertainment news and video.

16. 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.

17. 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.

18. Even the SEC Has to Bow to Hurricane -

Sports writers covering SEC football have done a historically bad job at the league’s summer Media Days of predicting the conference champion. But it’s an exercise that does not put lives at risk.

19. For the First Time This Season, Vols Set to Play as Underdog -

You almost can feel Tennessee is a football team of destiny as the most difficult games of the schedule loom Saturday at Texas A&M and Oct. 15 against Alabama at Neyland Stadium.

There aren’t many successful Hail Mary passes, but the Vols got one last Saturday and beat Georgia 34-31 in Athens. Tennessee trailed Georgia 17-0 in the first half.

20. Tennessee Vols Doing What the Rest Of the Country Can’t: Come Back Big -

Suppose Tennessee’s 5-0 start to the college football season (2-0 in SEC play) included only last Saturday’s impossible comeback victory over Georgia on the Joshua Dobbs Hail Mary pass on the game’s last play? That would be incredible enough, wouldn’t it?

21. Coach Cliché Strikes the Right Note for Tennessee -

Coach Cliché tells us it was just another game. Coach Cliché tells us the next game is always bigger than the last one. And, yes, Coach Cliché tells us you build things brick by brick.

22. Calming Halftime Helps Save a Season -

Tennessee football coach Butch Jones went from goat to hero in a matter of hours last Saturday.

The Vols trailed Florida 21-0 in the first half – and 21-3 at halftime – and appeared headed to their 12th consecutive loss to the Gators.

23. What’s Worse Than Dating A Gator? Another Loss -

If you’re a Tennessee fan hurting from the 11-game losing streak against Florida, put yourself in Corey Vereen’s shoes.

UT’s senior defensive end is from Winter Garden, Florida, and he’s 0-for-3 against his buddies back home. That’s not the worst part for Vereen.

24. Nothing Else Counts for Jones if He Can’t Top Gators -

Since his arrival at Tennessee in December 2012, Butch Jones often has spoken about the importance of getting the Vols back up and running in their biggest rivalry games.

Easier said than done. Jones has yet to beat either of UT’s two biggest rivals – Florida and Alabama.

25. FAA Contemplating Whether Millions of Drones Will Fill Skies -

WASHINGTON (AP) – So many people are registering drones and applying for drone pilot licenses that federal aviation officials said Friday they are contemplating the possibility of millions of unmanned aircraft crowding the nation's skies in the not-too-distant future.

26. High-Scoring Ohio Good Warmup for Florida Game -

Tennessee football returns to normalcy this week, if you call a noon EDT kickoff normal.

The Vols survived a Thursday night scare in the season opener against Appalachian State in Neyland Stadium. Then they roared from behind last Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway and beat Virginia Tech 45-24 in the Pilot Flying J. Battle at Bristol before a college football record crowd of 156,990.

27. ‘Breathtaking’ Transformation in Bristol -

This isn’t just any football game. It’s the Battle at Bristol.

When Tennessee plays Virginia Tech on Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, about 150,000 fans are expected to be in attendance, making it the largest crowd ever to watch a football game.

28. Vols Can’t Afford Another Iffy Effort at the Speedway -

Imagine if Tennessee running back Jalen Hurd hadn’t recovered the fumble by UT quarterback Joshua Dobbs in the end zone for a touchdown in overtime last Thursday night.

29. ITT Tech Shutters All Campuses After Federal Aid Sanctions -

The for-profit college chain ITT Technical Institute is shutting down all 130 of its U.S. campuses, saying Tuesday it can't survive recent sanctions by the U.S. Department of Education.

In a letter to more than 35,000 students, the Indiana-based parent company ITT Educational Services announced that campuses won't open for the fall term that was scheduled to begin Sept. 12 – leaving students scrambling for last-minute options since many U.S. colleges already have started fall classes. ITT also cut more than 8,000 jobs immediately.

30. While There is Work to Do, Norvell Era Opens With Win -

It was one of those grind-through-it practices before the first game of the college football season. Except that on this morning – 11 days before the University of Memphis would open the season at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium – the Tigers had taken a pass on the grinding.

31. Mike Norvell Wins Coaching Debut -

33. Looks Like 10-2, SEC Title Game, Orange Bowl for UT -

Editor’s note: Nashville sports correspondent Dave Link has been accurate in predicting season outcomes for the Tennessee Vols in recent years. His 2016 season predictions, released just before press time, culminates with an SEC Championship appearance. Here’s his take on the season…

34. Let’s Play 12 (Big) Questions -

While we wait for the gods of the Big 12 to make their decision on expansion, 12 questions as a public service:

1. How many teams are actually in the Big 12?

What, are you an idiot? There are 10. Which makes perfect sense when you consider the Big Ten has 14 teams, and not long before that had 12, and right before that had 11. The tricky part is remembering that the PAC-12 has – wait for it – 12 schools. I blame college football, which is behind all of this, for our nation’s inferior math scores on standardized tests.

35. Bland Home Schedule, Thin Roster Mark Tubby Smith’s Debut as Tigers Coach -

The University of Memphis men’s basketball team’s home non-conference schedule does not include a game with a marquee opponent or even with a fierce regional rival such as Tennessee. But the schedule does offer home games with the likes of Texas-Rio Grande Valley, Savannah State, Monmouth and Incarnate Word.

36. Bland Home Schedule and Thin Roster as Smith’s Tigers Open Nov. 14 -

37. Tubby Smith Open to Possibly Playing Vols in Future -

The University of Memphis men’s basketball team’s home non-conference schedule does not include a game with a marquee opponent or even with a fierce regional rival such as Tennessee.

The good news? The University of Memphis made the cut as one of five favorites.

The giant tech companies say they helped design the high-speed cable to carry data for their growing numbers of online consumers and commercial customers.

It will connect data hubs in Northern Virginia and Bilbao, Spain.

If you want to see the whole thing, Jon Gruden’s QB Camp with former University of Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch will air at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 16, on ESPN. The NFL Draft is April 28-30 in Chicago.

49. Norvell: Build Relationships, But Lose the Headphones And Hats -

In some respects, it’s all very corny. This whole notion of a football team as a family and relationships being the foundation of everything.

So if you’re suspicious, or at least skeptical, of the talk coming from first-year University of Memphis football coach Mike Norvell as spring practice gets underway, it’s understandable.

50. Up-Tempo Offense Will Need ‘Nasty’ O-Line -

If all goes well, the attention probably will be on the quarterback – an open competition at the moment – and the receivers and the running backs. That’s just how football works.

But ultimately the success of the University of Memphis offense next season will be about much more than the fast guys and the guy who gets the ball to them. First-year head coach Mike Norvell was offensive coordinator at Arizona State and he has brought with him Chip Long, who will serve as Norvell’s offensive coordinator, and who worked with Norvell from 2012 through 2015.

57. SEC Still Overrated? Wrap Your Head Around SEC West, Says Bielema -

That an Arkansas team played its best football at season’s end, coming into Memphis and defeating Kansas State 45-23 in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, hardly qualifies as a surprise.

58. An Emotional Obama Unveils His Plan to Cut Gun Violence -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama, at one point wiping tears from his cheek, unveiled his plan Tuesday to tighten control and enforcement of firearms in the U.S., using his presidential powers in the absence of legal changes he implored Congress to pass.

59. University of Memphis Notebook: Ballers Can’t Shoot, Norvell Completes Staff -

Among coach Josh Pastner’s favorite refrains: “You gotta make shots.”

The University of Memphis made few shots in its 86-76 loss at No. 24 South Carolina on Saturday, Jan. 2, going 19 of 61 from the floor for an atrocious 31.1 percent. So awful was the Tigers’ shooting from the floor that it rendered the 30 of 36 performance (83.3 percent) from the free-throw line a footnote.

60. It’s Official: Memphis QB Paxton Lynch Declares for NFL Draft -

The surprise had been gone for a long time. Everyone expected University of Memphis redshirt junior quarterback Paxton Lynch to declare for next spring’s NFL Draft.

Lynch made it official at a Thursday, Dec. 31, press conference on the U of M campus. Lynch leaves behind the Tigers’ single-season record for touchdown passes with 28 and for passing yards with 3,774.

61. 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.

62. Memorable Events of 2015 will Spill Into 2016 -

New University of Memphis football coach Mike Norvell will keep assistant coach Darrell Dickey on his staff.

68. A Bowl Game, By Any Name, Is a Chance for Another Victory -

Once upon a time, all you needed was a tuft of Cotton, a taste of Orange, a simple Rose and a cup of Sugar. That was your college football bowl season.

But the 2015-16 bowl season is full of often long, usually corporate, and frequently wacky college bowl names given to games with sometimes questionable purpose.

69. Legislator Introduces Proposal to Save Lady Vols Nickname -

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A state representative says he plans to introduce legislation that would require Tennessee to refer to all of its women's sports teams as the Lady Volunteers.

Rep. Roger Kane discussed his measure Sunday at a rally to save the Lady Vols nickname that drew close to 100 spectators before the Tennessee women's basketball team's game with Virginia Tech. Kane's proposal was first reported by the Knoxville News-Sentinel.

70. Memphis Tigers Football Hitches Hopes To Young Mike Norvell -

He was Mr. Joe College, the star wide receiver on the football team at Central Arkansas. She was the roommate of a girl on the basketball team that was a friend of his.

76. Norvell Is Tigers' New Football Coach -

When the University of Memphis hired a largely unknown offensive coordinator out of Texas Christian University he was just 35 years old. Only college football insiders knew and appreciated who Justin Fuente was and what he might become.

77. College Football’s Coaching Carousel Is Still Spinning -

In an ideal world, a kid climbs aboard a carousel and it’s all fun and good times. But the reality is, sometimes the experience is dizzying – even nauseating.

And so it goes with the current college football coaching carousel.

78. College Football Notebook: Memphis Coaching Search a Waiting Game -

As this is being written, the University of Memphis coaching search is a game of wait and see. Athletic director Tom Bowen & Co. apparently remain fixed on Missouri defensive coordinator Barry Odom, who served in the same position for three seasons at Memphis before going to Missouri before the 2015 season.

79. Search Underway For New Memphis Football Coach -

Justin Fuente is officially the new football coach at Virginia Tech, and at the University of Memphis the search for his successor has officially begun.

80. Fuente’s Departure From Memphis Bittersweet for All -

Justin Fuente should have coached in different time, a simpler time. Before this postmodern era of college football in which we all live. Before TV controlled everything.

How was your weekend, Memphis? Here’s our weekly rundown of local happenings you need to know about, from The Peabody’s 36-foot dessert table to your potential (fingers-crossed, maybe not) last chance to see Paxton Lynch at the Liberty Bowl…

87. College Football Notebook: As Usual, LSU And Alabama Control SEC West -

So here we are back at a familiar place: LSU vs. Alabama in a game that goes a long way toward determining the SEC West champion. And by extension, in all probability, the SEC champion. (Sorry Florida, but in this corner, we’re not true believers yet.)

88. Fuente: AAC Shouldn’t be Shy About Accomplishments -

Virginia Tech, Penn State, Louisville, Miami (Fla.) and Kansas all know the feeling. They are Power Five schools that this season have lost to American Athletic Conference teams. But even beyond the victories, the AAC’s teams draw attention for close losses. East Carolina, which defeated Virginia Tech, only lost by a touchdown to Florida.

89. Rocky Top In Nashville: Good For City, Bad For Vols -

I can’t help but get fired up for a college football game between Tennessee and Virginia Tech in front of 150,000 people at Bristol Motor Speedway.

92. Stones’ Nashville Connections Go Way Back -

While Brad Paisley lives what he calls “a bucket list item” by singing while playing his guitar in typically showy fashion as the opening act for The Rolling Stones, the most important guitarist in rock ‘n’ roll history and a man idolized by Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood will be sitting in his house on Blueberry Hill in the hills of northern Davidson County.

94. Vols Take Plenty of Momentum Into Offseason -

KNOXVILLE – There’s nothing like going into the offseason on a high note. The Vols will be riding the momentum from the resounding 45-28 victory against Iowa in the Jan. 2 TaxSlayer Bowl through the end of recruiting season, winter workouts, spring practices and into the summer months.

95. Vol Players See TaxSlayer Win as a Big Step for Program -

KNOXVILLE – Christmas break has come and gone for the University of Tennessee’s football team. Now it’s back to business.

96. Liberty Bowl Promises Lots of Offense -

The Dec. 29 AutoZone Liberty Bowl matches a pair of offenses that play at two speeds: fast and blurry.

“Both teams need to get to bed early because there’s going to be a lot of plays in this game,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said, noting their no-huddle, up-tempo styles.

97. Beach-Bound -

“Miami here we come!!!” That was quarterback Paxton Lynch’s tweet, spiced up with sun and palm tree icons.

It summed up what has been a glorious football season for the University of Memphis: a 9-3 record, a 7-1 mark in the American Athletic Conference and the program’s first share of a league title in 40 years. So the Tigers are headed to the first-ever Miami Beach Bowl for a Dec. 22 game with BYU.
