Freeze: "Bo Wallace has come on quite nicely," as a leader.
Feeze: "Coach Spurrier isn't talking about wanting to play us as much as Year 1."
Hugh Freeze up now. Mentions Chance Tetrick -- St. Jude patient -- is in a hard battle right now.
Just got off the phone with Lionel Hollins, who said -- as I wrote -- he meant no offense and, indeed, is keeping his house in Germantown.
But if we have no electricity, why is Z-Bo paying all those MLG&W bills?
Of course, to be fair to Lionel, Midtown often doesn't have electricity.
Anyway, was going to write college football playoffs today, wound up writing Lawsons and Hollins.
Lionel actually LIKES Memphis. He stayed here after getting dismissed. This was more dumb than mean, is what I'm saying.
Here's the thing, though: Lionel has never been as funny as he thinks he is. Someone should probably tell him that now.
Just banged out column on Hollins stuff. The guy didn't think he was criticizing the Rudy Gay trade, either. He tries to be funny a lot.
I Thank God for All he does for me on a daily basis I don't take it for granted

Quick, someone from the IRS should tell the college playoff people how to lose that Hancock transcript.
So, to sum up, the Big 8 and the Pac 10 champions may meet, if my gut is right, but don't tweet that.
"Gosh, I did it again," says Hancock, on calling the Big 12 the Big 8.
Hancock: "My gut tells me...." Yep, that's the clarity of the new system.
Arkansas is No. 12 and Tennessee is No. 17 in Hancock's hypothetical rankings, which makes me suspicious.
Hancock says trophy has never been hoisted. Wants first hoisting to be by champions. It's a hoisting virgin.
Bill Hancock is a prince, and his book, "Riding with the Blue Moth," is beautiful. But, my Lord, the blather.
Hancock said he's going to spend some time today having media pick the playoff teams. I'll do what I can for Memphis.
Hancock: "The playoff wasn't done for the money. It was done because we heard the fans" (except for the part where they asked for 8 teams).
Hancock: "To say those words, college football playoff feels very good to all of us." Hahahaha.
Now Bill Hancock, who was against the playoff before he was for it.
Commissioner Silver talked to Board of Governors today. Other team personnel get to hear from him tomorrow. Transparency a huge emphasis.
Heard RC Buford speak for the first time today. Guy is obviously smart, but most importantly, ensures Spurs stick to their core values.
"Waiving Nick was never on the table," source tells CA.
Today I want to thank u all for ur support& for believing in me in any kind of way not just bball but life too...ur all unbelievable!
Griz have 5 p.m. deadline to guarantee Nick Calathes for 2014-15 season. Barring an 11th hour deal, Calathes will remain w/ Griz per source.
I've only been here for 11 years but I have to believe this is the best July 15th weather in the history of Memphis right?
Don't panic ......I tell myself that when I lost something! It ain't working right now tho

Looking around, it seems most of the newspaper columnists have either 1) left the business, or 2) switched to TV and started wearing suits.
Sumlin says SEC is a "line of scrimmage league," which does not bode well for Vols.
Sumlin on Spurrier: "He was the standard. He is the standard."
Talked to Vol fan in lobby. Said local Alabama fans don't give him grief any more. "They just feel sorry for me."
I may ask Sumlin about LeBron's return, just for kicks.
Another question about Johnny and photos. Sumlin. "Is this the SEC media days? That's a great question -- about the Cleveland Browns."
First question to Kevin Sumlin: "What's it like not coaching Johnny Manziel?"
