As chair of the group, Anderson will lead a multidisciplinary team of attorneys in a range of legal matters needed by academic institutions. Anderson will practice in the firm’s Nashville and Washington, D.C. offices.

2. Around Neyland in 8 games: UT offers variety in game tickets -

Declining attendance is an issue facing college football programs across the country.

Many fans find the comforts of home – and the picture quality on their high-definition TV – reason enough to avoid the crowds. Others are turned off by the poor quality of matchups or a program’s lack of success. Other are simply busy with other priorities.

3. Can Carolina blue transform VU’s black and gold? -

The easy path. That’s never been the way for Jerry Stackhouse. He’s always taken the hard road to success.

Legendary North Carolina basketball coach Dean Smith made sure of that, and it was a lesson that Vanderbilt’s new men’s basketball coach has never forgotten.

4. 50-year survivor in a city of teardowns -

Bear Bryant could tell me about the Vandy game-day meetup he had with a U.S. president at this historic West End hotel. He’s dead, of course, as is that president, so I can ask neither about that day or their reflections as the Holiday Inn by Vanderbilt celebrates its 50th birthday.

5. Shurmur needs a team, Giants need a QB -

There’s a tantalizing bit of drama that could play out on the final day of the April 25-27 NFL Draft in downtown Nashville, one possible scenario that has captivated the imagination of football fans. And, also there’s a Music City connection. More specifically, a Vanderbilt connection.

6. NBA G League colleague: Turner a ‘spectacular hire’ -

Few people in Nashville know Vanderbilt athletics director Malcolm Turner as well as Donelson resident Tommy Smith.

That will quickly change, and both Vanderbilt and Nashville will be better for it, says Smith, who was Turner’s right-hand man as vice president of operations at the NBA G League.

7. Morgan builds an empire, one hungry vegan Titan at a time -

Charity Morgan has a lot on her plate. She is currently focused on feeding the huge appetite of very large men. But for 2019 and beyond, she is preparing a feast of dreams.

A vegan, plant-based chef with a culinary arts degree, Charity cooks for her husband – Tennessee Titans outside linebacker Derrick Morgan – and more than a dozen of his teammates, and “a couple of celebrity clients” that she won’t reveal “but where I couldn’t say no.”

8. Nowhere to go but down for international skydiving champ -

Smyrna resident Jake Jensen gets high on the job whenever he can. When he’s not working, he gets high just for fun.

More than two miles high whenever he is given the opportunity.

Two miles may not seem that much to some – after all, The Byrds long ago celebrated being “Eight Miles High,” but from my vantage, I’m reasonably sure they were not singing about the wild, blue yonder that surrounds Jake while he’s on the job.

9. Sherrard Roe hires Wood as associate -

Attorney Talley K. Wood has joined Sherrard Roe Voigt & Harbison as an associate, announced founding member Tom Sherrard.

Wood was previously an associate at Bass, Berry & Sims, PLC, in the Corporate & Securities practice. She is a member of the American Health Lawyers Association.

10. Ex-boxer recalls his fight for American dream -

The former boxer raises his fist softly, conversational punctuation rather than threat, as he discusses his life, from the time he illegally entered the U.S. to his proud citizenship, his career in the ring and the years since he stepped between the ropes for the final time to focus on his sons and his nightclub, San Jose Fiesta.

11. Nashville Bar Association fetes pro bono volunteers -

Chris Mayfield, assistant vice president of development for HCA Inc., has been honored as the Pro Bono Volunteer of the Year award by Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands, Tennessee’s largest nonprofit law firm.

12. Pinnacle’s Collier named top program manager -

16. The TV-streaming paradox: Why you might miss the cable bundle -

NEW YORK (AP) — The future of TV may well be a mishmash of streaming services that could rival the cost of a $100 cable bundle — but that are way more difficult to use.

Disney's plan for two new streaming services (and possibly more) is just the latest sign that everyone is jumping into the streaming business. It intends to launch a kids-oriented movie and TV streaming service in 2019 that will pull Disney and Pixar films from Netflix, as well as an ESPN sidekick service (minus pro football and basketball) expected early next year. The company is even exploring the possibility of separate streaming services for its Star Wars and Marvel superhero films.

17. Cellphone service could be spotty for rural eclipse-watchers -

ST. LOUIS (AP) — If you plan to livestream next month's solar eclipse from one of the prime viewing spots, here's a thought: Keep your phone in your pocket, put on your paper shades and just enjoy the celestial wonder.

18. Blackburn still the favorite for UT’s AD position -

Tennessee has its search firm and its search committee is in place to find the replacement for Dave Hart as the university’s athletic director.

Hart announced last August he would retire June 30, and with Tennessee undergoing a transition in its chancellor’s position, the search for Hart’s replacement was put on the back burner.

19. Nashville Bar honors Rubenfeld, Harbison -

Abby Rubenfeld and Bill Harbison have been honored by the Nashville Bar Association with the The John C. Tune Public Service Award, the organization’s highest.

The award, which is only given in years when there are deserving nominees, was presented this year for outstanding contributions to the community.

20. Titaned up: Success found in big moves, tiniest details -

Most critics of last year’s Tennessee Titans saw unsettled ownership, a revolving door of coaches and a lack of talent at key positions. Jon Robinson saw weeds.

As the newly hired general manager made his way around St. Thomas Sports Park, he noticed a patch of weeds growing next to the building. It was an oversight by groundskeepers and probably didn’t faze others people who made their way in and out of the building.

21. Titans launching series of youth football day camps -

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are launching a series of youth football day camps that are set to take place next summer in various Tennessee locations.

The camps are planned for Memphis, Knoxville and the greater Nashville area throughout June and July. Expansion is planned into additional markets in the summer of 2018.

22. Looks like 10-2, SEC title game, Orange Bowl for UT -

Tennessee’s football team and its fans have the best of both worlds this weekend.

They get to relish in a season-opening victory Thursday night and enjoy a feast of good college football all day Saturday.

23. Marketing Mariota -

As an NFL quarterback, Sunday is show time for Marcus Mariota. That’s when he suits up and does everything in his power to help the Tennessee Titans win football games.

But a recent Sunday morning was a different kind of show time. Mariota spent four hours on the opposite side of the Cumberland River from Nissan Stadium on a commercial shoot. A camera crew captured footage of him jogging in downtown Nashville and posing in front of various landmarks.

25. Will Commodores finally grab gold or fade to black? -

There’s an excited undertone, a giddy murmur about Vanderbilt’s men’s basketball team this season.

Even a couple of recent losses haven’t diminished the sounds and speculations: Is this the year Vanderbilt doesn’t flame out in the NCAA tournament? Can Kevin Stallings’ Commodores push deep into the bracket and at least flirt with the Elite Eight … or beyond?

26. Freshmen to again play key roles for Vols -

Despite doing so in 2014, Tennessee football coach Butch Jones doesn’t want to make a habit of placing freshmen in prominent roles.

You don’t win SEC titles with freshmen.

UT went 7-6 last season, 3-5 in the SEC, and won the TaxSlayer Bowl while setting a school record by playing 21 true freshmen in the season-opener.

27. Vols, Titans fight to fill empty stadium seats -

When it comes to giving the consumer what it wants, few sports programs can match University of Tennessee football.

Neyland Stadium, which 40 years ago could accommodate only 70,000 fans, has swelled to a capacity of 102,455, fifth largest in college football. It has a $4 million, 4,580-square-foot Jumbotron, W-Fi connections for fans and enough flashing lights around the stadium’s interior to shame the Las Vegas Strip.

28. A career in pro sports not all fun and games -

With football season underway and basketball season beginning, questions have started to arise about working in professional sports. Let’s be honest. Who wouldn’t want to get up and go to work for their favorite sports franchise? Every day would be fun and exciting – and we might even meet a few of the players!

29. Surprise career twist for area’s top recruiter of corporations -

Ask Janet Miller about her remarkable career at the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and she’ll likely attribute it to good timing or pass credit onto others.

But ask others about her and they’ll talk about an exceptional ability to lead, build trust and forge relationships with a diverse range of people, and, above all, her will to win.

30. Right city, clearly the wrong actress -

When I wrote about the 2014 Little Rock Film Festival, I reviewed, in three paragraphs, “I Believe in Unicorns.”

This just in from that film’s director, Leah Myerhoff: “I appreciate your thoughtful response to the film. However, [please] make one correction: the lead actress is Natalia Dyer, not Amy Seimetz.”

31. Same playbook, different routes: Lassing, Matthews follow on-field success at VU with golden opportunities in post-grad world -

By this time next week, Thursday night at the earliest and Saturday afternoon at the very latest, Jordan Matthews will have a job lined up.

Two Vanderbilt graduates with economic majors, football teammates, young men with shared goals, faith and values, they are preparing to leave the relatively sheltered campus life on West End and head for the fast lane.

32. Lady Vols, Nashville share Final Four dream -

Nashville is a city in the national spotlight, increasingly landing on “best of’’ lists that range from economic diversity to entertainment and food to the health care industry.

Yet despite marked improvements in public education, the city hasn’t found its way been onto lists of the nation’s best schools.

Former associates Wendee M. Hilderbrand, Michael J. Holley and Price W. Wilson have been elected to membership in the firm of Bass, Berry & Sims PLC.

As the Tennessee Titans go their separate ways for the bye week, let’s examine what we’ve learned about them thus far in this 2011 season.

Most people would agree that the Titans have been better than most people would have expected at 3-2.
