Posted By on Wed, Jan 13, 2010 at 7:26 AM

Coverage of the governor's special-session address by Chas Sisk, Andy Sher, and Tom Humphrey. ... A summary of the education changes up for debate. ... And reaction from the players:
"I got the answers that I wanted, and I got the reasoning behind it. This just came so sudden that it was a shock to our teachers. Once we get into it, and they realize what we're trying to do in Tennessee, I think they'll be OK with it." -- House Speaker Kent Williams, R-Elizabethton
Nashville's World Cup bid is alive. "This is like nothing we've ever done. This is the single biggest event in the world!" ... Metro schools slashing $35 million from budget. ... A state House committee chairman unveils a plan to quickly suspend a new workers' comp law and give lawmakers a year to fix it. ... The House Transportation Committee agrees to a two-year moratorium on new traffic cameras statewide. ... A 75-year-old retired Air Force colonel becomes the second Republican trying to unseat Sen. Lowe Finney. ... Harold Ford's evolving views: The New York Times interview.
"To describe me as pro-life is just wrong. I am personally pro-choice and legislatively pro-choice."
Lane Kiffin deserts the Vols for the Trojans. Would Muschamp really leave Texas for Rocky Top? The headlines: Eye-opener: Why did Kiffin leave Tennessee so fast? ... Kiffin weasels out at Tennessee, lands in Hollywood ... Kiffin lovefest ends abruptly on Rocky Top.
Chris Low: My initial thought is that Kiffin must have a pretty good agent. He now has one of the top three jobs in college football and has yet to celebrate his 35th birthday or win more than seven games in a season as a head coach.
