Tennessee Titans finish 9-7 in Munchak’s First Season as Head Coach

 

Titans to pick 20th in NFL Draft
Free Agency begins March 13th

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – When Mike Munchak was hired as head coach of the Tennessee Titans on February 7th, 2011, an uncertain landscape awaited him. The franchise had only recently parted ways with the only head coach in its Tennessee history, and team owner K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr. had already made the decision to begin anew at the quarterback position.

But the foremost concern on the mind of team management, players and fans alike was whether or not there would even be a football season.

A year later, on the heels of a 9-7 season in which the Titans narrowly missed out on a playoff berth, the franchise is once again enjoying stability and a sense of hope. «Read the rest of this article»

Austin Peay State University will have Former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins visit for a Reading on Marth 16th

 

APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative ArtsClarksville, TN – If one were to rank the country’s top poets (which I would never recommend doing), Billy Collins would likely top most lists. Aside from being both critically acclaimed and commercially popular, he is frequently heard on National Public Radio, and his appointment in 2001 as the Poet Laureate of the United States has afforded him a certain name recognition uncommon for most lyricists.

But attempting to rank poets and poetry in this way is a bit unseemly, so one is forced to judge the man on his work. That’s where Collins stands out, using a light touch to suddenly transform a humorous piece into something serious.
