CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Joe Shamblin was up most of Monday night, battling through a gut-wrenching virus.

On the drive home from his first game as head basketball coach at Notre Dame High School, Brad Harris wondered if he had made the right career choice.

Hey, somebody plunk those guys at Signal Mountain in the ribs, make sure they're awake and them emphasize to them that they're in the playoffs.

For those who cannot yet comprehend the notion, Cleveland has secured the District 5-AAA championship regardless of the outcome of the Blue Raiders' Thursday game at Soddy-Daisy.

Copper Basin and Boyd-Buchanan don’t play until Oct. 29 but each already has secured a playoff spot, Copper Basin in Class 1A and Boyd-Buchanan in 2A. The winner of this game will secure the District 5-A championship and perhaps improve its postseason seeding.

With just three weeks remaining in the Tennessee high school football regular season, there is very little playoff clarity yet, even with the format tweaks since last year.

Have you noticed those playoffs rankings the TSSAA is releasing every Tuesday?

Cleveland free and clear of allegations of wrongdoing that were leveled a couple of weeks ago.

In a business that naturally creates big egos, Thomas Cole is an exception.

As Tiger Stadium closed down its final season at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull in Detroit in 1999, Tigers great Al Kaline said of the park, “While common materials may have been used to build this place — concrete, steel and bricks — the memories are the cement that has held it together for 88 wonderful seasons.”

It usually takes the welcome anticipation of opening day each April to ignite the passion for baseball hibernating deep within my soul during another wet and wearisome winter.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Since his career officially came to an end late Wednesday evening, I'll admit to being a bit late in paying my respects to Polk County girls' basketball coach Ron Davis. But I'm not nearly as tardy in honoring him as Polk County school administrators.

The move was meant to be dynamic but quickly turned disastrous instead.
