Re: “Talk of a new Sulphur Dell stadium stirs memories of Nashville's African-American baseball history

Nice piece...still not sure that the site's right for the new stadium, but good work on your part.

Re: “The Belmont-Lipscomb rivalry takes a twist with Rick Byrd's protégé running the Bisons

BruinHeart,

There's a better chance of Lipscomb being competitive than TSU over the long run (although, frankly, both are mysteries this year until they play a few games), largely because the commitment of the school is so much higher. The thing that made the Murray State games so good last year was that everybody knew those games were for the OVC crown. That will be tempered a bit this year with Cannan in the NBA and Zay Jackson transferring.

Re: “The depleted 'Dores need a Dumbledore — and it just might be Kevin Stallings

How do you figure he's earned enough benefit of the doubt? He's been at Vandy for 14 years and never made it past the Sweet 16? He had one of the most talented teams in the country two years ago and they lost double digit games (unheard of for a team that has 3 NBA players on it). The play of his teams now are marked by an excessive amount of turnovers, no rebounding whatsoever and a complete lack of mental or physical toughness. I guess you should really ask why should he stay? The program is withering on the vine not rebuilding on itself.

This isn't a big rivalry anymore for Belmont students. Moving into the OVC changed that dynamic and students now see Murray State and TSU as their big rivals. I see TSU becoming the cross-town rival that Lipscomb once was.

Re: “Should Bud Adams' history in Nashville be defined by football or careful use of public dollars? Or both?

I don't know that Bud extorted Houston- Houston paid much more to get the Texans that Bud was asking for to stay. Houston's mayor cut off his nose to spite his face.

Bud's education about publicly financed NFL stadia probably came courtesy of the Buccaneers.

http://cbsminnesota.files.wordpress.com/20…

Peter Gent, author of "North Dallas Forty", wrote the blueprint in 1983 for the modern era NFL- "The Franchise". Municipal funding, PSLs, Sunday Ticket- his only mistakes were being conservative on the numbers by an order of magnitude.

Re: “Remembering Chuck Ross, as true-blue a believer as Nashville sports ever had

"Nashville left that behind — for the better, most would agree."
Among those 'most' are a lot of transplants with inferiority complexes...wishing to transform the city into the places they left, all the while missing many of the attractions this city has to offer. Chuck will be missed.

Re: “The Titans struggle with the playbook of years long ago — and they're not the only ones

Maybe the Titans are a lot better than their previous editions. We'll see.

Re: “The Titans struggle with the playbook of years long ago — and they're not the only ones

I thought Mike Tomlinson was the coach at South Kirkwood Technical Kindergarten and Montessori Motorcycle Maintenance Academy? I had no idea he got the Steeler gig!! Oh.. wrong guy.... But in seriousness, I think that the Steeler game (albiet they are obviously less talented as previous incarnations) was going to be a bludgeon-fest because that's been their identity and testament of a Dick "His name is not a venereal disease" Le Beau's defense. I think that this column should be revisited after the Texans game where there is likely to be much more of the playbook opened for a heated divisional rival that is the replacement team in Bud Adams' hometown. If Warmack can neutralize Watts, I think we'll much more of the playbook executed; but with control of the clock clearly in view. It's a marathon, not a sprint right now in the NFL... kinda like October hockey is.

Re: “The Titans struggle with the playbook of years long ago — and they're not the only ones

I believe Mike Tomlinson was also a coach while at Henry Mellish Grammar School (now called Henry Mellish School and Specialist Sports College) Ashby-de-la-Zouch Grammar School between 1965-1977 while also teaching Chemistry.

Re: “The Titans struggle with the playbook of years long ago — and they're not the only ones

>>yet the Titans were lucky to beat them<<

Then you need to stick to hockey or soccer then as you clearly don't know shit from shinola about football. The Steelers didn't even score on their own until something like 90 seconds were left in the game. Were it not for the kickoff safety boo-boo, they would've had a goose egg until the last 90 seconds.

No one is claiming the Steelers are world beaters this year. But Mike Tomlinson damn sure hasn't forgotten how to coach & Big Ben damn sure hasn't forgotten how to be a QB & Troy Polominu (sp?) will no doubt be a Pro Bowler at safety again this year.

In fact, when one considers how amped up the Steelers should've been to be at their home opener, it should give the Titans even a bigger tip of the hat to have won as they did. The Titans DOMINATED the time of possession, something woefully lacking the last 4-5 years.

I also note New England barely beat the woeful Bills & barely beat the awful Jets last night. No one is questioning about Tom Brady's ability or accuracy, are they?
