Randy Smith: SEC Coaches - Early Hot Seats

We are four full months away from the start of the college football season. That's 120 days or so, or one-third of an entire year. Putting it in those terms......we're still a long way from the opening weekend of play. Yet, some of the conversation on sports talk shows has been, " Which coaches are on the hot seat as we begin the 2016 season ?"   When you think about ... (click for more)

Lookouts Fall To Montgomery Thursday, 6-1

Daniel Palka is locked in at the plate right now, but not even a 2-for- 2 night with a walk from the right fielder could give the Lookouts a win tonight, as they fell 6-1 in the series opener against the Montgomery Biscuits. The Lookouts fell behind early as the Biscuits tagged starting pitcher DJ Baxendale for four runs early.  Chattanooga answered ... (click for more)

Jill Levine Is An Educational Rock Star

No one has covered the Hamilton County Department of Education drama better than Roy Exum.  Thank you, Roy, but I take issue with your unnamed sources.  Professional jealousy and sour grape darts should not be anonymous.   HCDE is so dysfunctional, and there is good cause to place this public organization under a microscope, dissect it into pieces and discard all ...

Roy Exum: Cancer Is Not A Battle

I read a marvelous essay not long ago where the author urged, “Stop telling the lie that cancer is a battle … a battle implies a fair fight, and there was nothing fair about my cancer or the cancer that took the life of my friend. Those experiences were about as fair as getting hit by a car – and nobody says people lose their battles with automobiles.” Mary Elizabeth Williams, ... (click for more)
