Re: “The Derek Mason Era begins with a thud — and the realization that James Franklin left at the right time

I am not in the prediction business, but would remind all that Franklin's 2012 team started out 0-2 and was 1-3 after the first four games. We went on to finish with 9 wins including the bowl win. Derek Mason is much more about building character and champions than in building his own ego and reputation. Mason is the real deal and will find the tools to build a team to be proud of.

Vanderbilt's offense has 0 TDs, and hasn't named a QB for Saturday's game, yet they're favored to beat UMass by 17.5? #noeffingway

Re: “As the Sounds say goodbye to Greer Stadium, so does a lifelong baseball fan with a heart full of memories

Wonderful Story Kay, My memories of summer nights at Greer will be cherished also. Although I`ve not been as much in recent years, when my kids were younger, we went to a lot of games. They always wanted to go when the Famous Chicken was in town. We also had second row dugout seats one time when Michael Jordan played for the Birmingham Barons...Hopefully, the new Sulpher Dell Stadium will create a whole new set of memories for todays kids.

Re: “Former Vandy great David Price is living the high life but vowing to avoid the traps into which many professional athletes fall

David is amazing and I will be a fan where ever his career takes him. I hope the Rays front office finds a way to pay him in future years but I really think he should go for the big bucks. The shelf life of a pro athlete is short and he should ride the wave of his success. I would hate to see him go but if it is a good move then so be it.

Re: “Draft picks Taylor Lewan and Zach Mettenberger bring significant baggage to Nashville in addition to talent

Agreed Brandy. You're drunk, surrounded by drunks, in a crowded bar...a COLLEGE BAR! Drunken bar groping happens. does that make you a criminal?

If everyone (male and female) was arrested for touching someone at a bar, then The Stage would be empty on Friday and Saturday nights.

Re: “Draft picks Taylor Lewan and Zach Mettenberger bring significant baggage to Nashville in addition to talent

so sick of these people continuously throwing Zach under the bus for some thing he did YEARS ago... what they fail to mention is that the girl was THROWING herself at him.... nothing he did was against her will until her boyfriend saw what was going on, plain and simple! I can understand if he had just walked up to a chick and started grabbing them, but she had it all in his face, showing her panties and such... THAT IS NOT A VICTIM, that is someone who got busted out and blamed someone else for what she was doing! I have been grabbed many times by men in bars... and they get punched in the face and i move on.... CHICK WAS LOOKING FOR ATTENTION....plain and simple.

Re: “Be careful, UT fans — it's a lot easier to get rid of coaches than to build a winning team

Re: “Stop that crazy talk about hosting the Super Bowl, domeless Nashville, and be proud we're hosting the Final Four

Indianapolis also has farrrrrrr more hotel rooms in the immediate downtown area and all of those hotels are connected to their incredible convention center via skywalks and their massive dome is just minutes walking distance from all those hotel rooms and that convention center. Indy is a far superior host city for major events

Re: “MTSU can't overcome the perception that it doesn't measure up to the state's SEC schools

I think you're missing the point. J.R. himself is not ignoring or underestimating us- he's pointing out that others do, despite what the Blue Raiders have accomplished. He even asks, "What more could Middle have done to impress the committee?"

Yes, Middle has made tremendous strides in terms of competitiveness, etc...but we are burdened with the "Little Middle" perception all the same. Based on what MT has accomplished over the last several years, the university should be much more highly regarded than it is.

Re: “In the wake of the Jets controversy, a female Titans reporter enters the locker room

At this late date, it is doubtful anyone will read this. But just have to say I am amazed at how blind female sports reporters are. The make so many enemies by going into the locker room. Before I became fully aware of the locker room issue, I was all for women being in the sports reporting field. But the locker room issue has brought to the forefront their contempt for the male athlete (spoiled rich fraternity brats are some of the names these "professionals" use), their hypocrisy (they would not support such abuse to female athletes or themselves), and their sexism (all conflicts are the result of males misbehaving).

Because of this, I do not care about what they write or have to say. And I hope they do not advance in this profession because their idea of fairness is only what is best for female sportswriters.

Last point. They must know the anger their presence in locker room causes their customers - the sports fans. Every poll shows that the public is overwhelmingly against them being allowed in the LR. They say the word, and kiss-ass Goodell would leap to convince the owners to build an interview room outside the locker room. but they do not; on this one issue, they are docile. That tells me that they view their locker room access as a huge benefit of their profession. I think they love to see the athletes naked, they love the power this access gives them over athletes who they already hold in contempt, and they love the status it gives them with their friends.

If a single athlete objects to their presence then they are guilty of sexual harassment, even though they cannot be prosecuted. Therefore, they deserve the respect we would give any serial criminal. We should hold all women reporters who go into the locker room in contempt.

Re: “MTSU can't overcome the perception that it doesn't measure up to the state's SEC schools

UT is not a giant. They were back in '98, but that is no longer. Let's not forget who MT beat in the 2nd round of NIT a few years ago... yep... UT at UT. Also, let's not forget who made NCAA tourney last year and who didn't. MT did, UT didn't. MT football has beat Vandy on numerous occasions causing what most MT fans view as a "fear" in Vandy fans to even schedule us any more. MT basketball beat Vandy in Bridgestone Arena just last year. MT had thousands of fans in attendance. Vandy had maybe 400. MTSU has tremendously stepped up it's game. Just because we aren't SEC is not an excuse to ignore us or underestimate us (aka: Georgia Tech and Maryland). If not being a SEC team is a reason to not be a Middle fan, then boy are you blind to what talent is hovering down there in the Boro.

Re: “In addition to being talented, Derek Mason has the benefit of not being James Franklin

Excellent job on the article. I enjoyed the positive spirit in your writing. Not going to nitpick you about the chronology of events. Fans just do not want Franklin taking credit for those things he did not do. The thing that Franklin did was make them fashionable. Things are really fashionable when winning is involved, and Franklin won games. He is gone now, and we now have a better man and from all indications a better coach. Go Dores! Anchor Down!
