As many of us were focused on Tigers football and the journey to Orlando last week, there was word that either both or one of the two minority owners of the Grizz had exercised a buy-sell provision in the NBA team’s unique ownership agreement. And what could be a fight for control of the team’s ownership is underway. The sports website The Athletic broke the story last Thursday. Here it is.

And Corker is leading a group of deficit hawks whose block of votes is considered crucial in what happens to a proposal that was being reshaped as midnight approached. Here's Politico with comments from Corker as of late Thursday

9. Much at Stake in Memphis-UCF Rematch -

For a game that happened two months ago, UCF’s 40-13 victory over the Memphis Tigers has had incredible staying power. But there are logical reasons for that, too.

It’s the only loss Memphis (10-1) suffered all year. The Tigers took out two Top-25 teams (at the time the games were played) in UCLA and Navy.
