23. Back-to-Back Dak? Dobbs Shines at Senior Bowl -

To say Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs might be the next Dak Prescott is a stretch. Or is it? Prescott, the former Mississippi State quarterback, caught the eye of the Dallas Cowboys with his MVP performance in the 2016 Senior Bowl.

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

31. And Now It's Comcast vs. The Wait for the Cable Guy -

NEW YORK (AP) – Did you hear the one about the cable company that's actually improving customer service? The punchline: Comcast and its rivals say it's no joke.

These companies have poured hundreds of millions into new tools and staff to de-agonize the process of getting cable TV, Internet or phone service. It's part of a yearslong effort to assuage customers as the specter of "cord-cutting" – dumping cable for Netflix and the like – haunts the industry. More than 2 million customers have fled from cable and satellite over the past three years, according to research firm SNL Kagan, and the pace has been accelerating.

A two-game losing streak in a college basketball season isn’t that unusual. But for the University of Memphis, the current two-game skid has set off alarms.

The Tigers’ strength this season has been their defense. But at Cincinnati last Thursday the Bearcats shot 50 percent in beating Memphis 76-72. A dreadful East Carolina team scored its first American Athletic Conference victory on Sunday, Jan. 23, in an 84-83 win over Memphis at FedExForum and shot 61.5 percent in the first half. Guard B.J. Tyson hit 6 of 10 shots from long range and finished with 26 points.

42. North Texas Could Never Upset the Vols, Right? -

No way Tennessee’s football team can lose Saturday’s homecoming game against North Texas, one of the worst teams in college football.

48. Grizzlies’ Carter, Lee Confident Long-Range Shots Will Fall -

The Memphis Grizzlies take and make fewer 3-point shots than any team in the NBA not named the Minnesota Timberwolves.

49. Affordability? It’s All in the Eye of the Buyer -

The new construction at 2314 Castleman sold last week for $1,365,000 after Brent Morris of Parks listed the home for $1,395,000.

53. Grizz Atop Southwest Division Despite Challenges -

Playing without starting point guard Mike Conley (left wrist sprain) and swingman Tony Allen (left ankle sprain), the Grizzlies pounded the Mavericks 109-90 Tuesday night, Jan. 27, in Dallas and perhaps delivered a message to the rest of the Western Conference:

54. For Tigers, Any Win is Good -

The Tigers’ problems are solved. Or at least they are when they make 11 threes, shoot 52.4 percent from long range, and almost 80 percent at the free-throw line.

So let’s reframe things: For a night, this was how the University of Memphis got around their worst habit – giving the ball to the other team.

56. Mississippi State’s Historic Season Continues -

No doubt, Mississippi State’s season turns on what happens next Saturday at Alabama. But for a moment, let us consider what the Bulldogs have done so far in running out to a 9-0 start, 5-0 in the SEC, and claiming the top spot in the national polls.

57. No On One -

However, prices continued their upward surge last month as the supply of available homes continued to dwindle.

66. US Consumer Confidence Moved Up in May -

WASHINGTON (AP) – U.S. consumers were slightly more confident in the economy in May than in April, partly because of strengthening optimism about future hiring and income gains.

Through a 31-game regular season and an 18-game grind in the American Athletic Conference, the University of Memphis never lost back-to-back games. It’s a notable achievement.

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.

77. Bank of America Says Housing has ‘Begun to Turn' -

NEW YORK (AP) – For banks, mortgage-making kept profits humming before the financial crisis, then blackened reputations and stamped out earnings when the crisis hit.

Now, the business of mortgage lending is more of a mixed bag.

78. 30-Year Mortgage Rate Hits Record 3.36 Percent -

83. Called to Serve -

It’s hard to spot changes on the Midtown campus of Rhodes College.

The campus’ landscape is thick with old and massive trees in a part of town known for its impressive canopy of trees.

87. Roar of the Tiger: Memphis Captures C-USA Championship -

Before halftime it was clear that the University of Memphis would be cutting down the nets at FedExForum as champions of the Conference USA Tournament.

88. Tigers Advance to C-USA Championship -

From the Tigers’ perspective, what wasn’t there to like about a resounding 83-52 victory over Central Florida Friday evening in the semifinals of the Conference USA Tournament at FedExForum?

The Tigers led by as many as 38 points near game’s end and their defense rendered the Knights helpless. Coach Josh Pastner was able to find minutes for Adonis Thomas, playing just his second game since returning from an ankle injury. And Pastner was able to empty his bench. The closest thing to a negative? Forgotten forward Stan Simpson collecting three fouls in his five minutes of playing time.
